Hey All,

Nexus7 Running Raring 13.04

Today was the official announcement for the Nexus 7 supporting 13.04, for all you Nexus7 users that may have missed todays ubuntu meeting on Freenode.

This week we announced that the 13.04 build is available for download. New features include:

Added the oem installer, so no more preinstalled images!! Users can select their desired Language / Time Zone and Username

The ubuntu-installer-nexus7 was recently updated to rev 1.7 , this new version now flashes the 13.04 daily builds
For those of you that may not have the installer, you can go grab it @ https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-nexus7/+archive/ubuntu-nexus7-installer

If some of you want to dist-upgrade from 12.10 -> 13.04 then you may hit some known issues.

Please refer to the following bugs:

These are the only bugs I found when dist-upgrading. We are urging everyone to re-flash if you don’t want to deal with the workarounds.

Serial Debug is a new feature that was recently added for 13.04, to enable and use, simply plug the usb cable into the Nexus7, connect to your computer and via a terminal type:

  • “screen /dev/ttyACM0 115200”

This should drop you into a login prompt. To kill, issue “ctrl-a k”

Refer to the wiki for more info @ https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Nexus7/

Enjoy!
