How to get Android 7.1.2 Nougat by flashing a factory image




Another way to get Android 7.1.2 Nougat on your device is to flash a factory image, which is a file that contains the entire system image of the software. This method is more advanced and requires some technical skills and tools, but it allows you to bypass the waiting time and the possible restrictions from your manufacturer or carrier. However, it also involves some risks, such as losing your data, voiding your warranty, or bricking your device, so proceed with caution and at your own responsibility.


The prerequisites for flashing a factory image




Before you flash a factory image on your device, you need to have the following prerequisites:


  • A compatible device that has an unlocked bootloader.



  • A computer that runs Windows, Mac, or Linux.



  • A USB cable that connects your device to your computer.



  • The latest Android SDK platform-tools installed on your computer.



  • The latest factory image for your device downloaded from the [Google Developers website].



  • The latest Gapps package for Android 7.1.2 Nougat downloaded from the [Open Gapps website].



The steps to enable developer settings and USB debugging




To flash a factory image on your device, you need to enable some settings that are hidden by default. To do so, follow these steps:


  • Go to Settings > About phone and tap Build number seven times until you see a message that says You are now a developer.



  • Go back to Settings and tap Developer options.



  • Enable OEM unlocking and USB debugging by toggling the switches next to them.



  • Connect your device to your computer using the USB cable and tap OK when prompted to allow USB debugging.



The steps to unlock the bootloader




To flash a factory image on your device, you need to unlock the bootloader, which is a program that loads the operating system on your device. Unlocking the bootloader will erase all data on your device, so make sure you back up your important files before doing so. To unlock the bootloader, follow these steps:


  • On your computer, open a terminal or command prompt window and navigate to the folder where you installed the Android SDK platform-tools.



  • Type adb reboot bootloader and press Enter to reboot your device into bootloader mode.



  • Type fastboot devices and press Enter to check if your device is recognized by your computer.



  • Type fastboot flashing unlock and press Enter to unlock the bootloader on your device.



  • On your device, use the volume keys to select Yes and press the power button to confirm.



  • Type fastboot reboot and press Enter to reboot your device normally.



The steps to install TWRP recovery




To flash a factory image on your device, you need to install TWRP recovery, which is a custom recovery that allows you to perform various operations on your device, such as flashing ROMs, backing up data, wiping partitions, and more. To install TWRP recovery, follow these steps:


  • Download the latest TWRP recovery image for your device from the [TWRP website] and save it in the same folder where you installed the Android SDK platform-tools.



  • On your computer, open a terminal or command prompt window and navigate to the folder where you saved the TWRP recovery image.



  • Type adb reboot bootloader and press Enter to reboot your device into bootloader mode.



  • Type fastboot flash recovery twrp-xxx.img and press Enter to flash TWRP recovery on your device, where xxx is the name of the TWRP recovery image file.



  • Type fastboot reboot and press Enter to reboot your device normally.



The steps to download and flash the Android 7.1.2 Nougat ROM and Gapps




To flash a factory image on your device, you need to download and flash the Android 7.1.2 Nougat ROM and Gapps packages, which contain the system software and the Google apps respectively. To do so, follow these steps:


  • Download the latest Android 7.1.2 Nougat ROM for your device from the [Google Developers website] and save it in the same folder where you installed the Android SDK platform-tools.



  • Download the latest Gapps package for Android 7.1.2 Nougat from the [Open Gapps website] and save it in the same folder where you installed the Android SDK platform-tools.



Connect your device to your computer using the USB cable and copy the ROM and Gapps files to the internal storage of your device.</l
