Since the Nexus 7 launched in July users wanting to use the tablet in landscape mode on the homescreens or application drawer have been left wanting. Today a new Android build, JZO54K to be exact is slowly rolling out to Nexus 7 devices around the world. This new build also brings a minor Android version upgrade to 4.1.2.
Known additions include the presence of a landscape orientated launcher, as well as the usual bug fixes and performance enhancements.
The update file is just over 31 MB in size. I have not received the update on my unit yet but you can check for yourself by going into settings > about tablet > system updates and hope the check now button works for you.
KitGuru says: This will be sure to please those wanting a landscape launcher since the tablet's launch.
