Updating my Nexus 7 (2013) to Android 5.0 Lollipop


Today I decided it’s time to jump on the Android Lollipop wagon. I like flashing brand new stuff to my devices and I rooted and flashed custom firmware to almost all my gadgets. Why not try Android 5.0?

My Nexus 7 (2013) ran on OmniROM before and I’m pretty happy with that ROM. It runs stable, updates are coming quickly and it not too far from AOSP. But it has no Lollipop yet. Time to try something new.

A quick search revealed SimpleAOSP for Nexus flo. I downloaded the ROM and Google Apps for Lollipop. A full wipe is required to install the new ROM, as always when upgrading to a completely new version.

But after rebooting I couldn’t download files to my device, I could not connect via USB and drag’n’drop files, I couldn’t even see stuff in my sdcard folder. Luckily there was already a solution available on XDA: /sdcard problems after upgrading Android

The solution is running the following commands in a Terminal:

su
restorecon -FR /data/media/0

Make sure you have root before doing this. After this I can use the device again. :-)
