If you own an old Android tablet, you might have noticed that it has become slow and sluggish over time. Well, the good news is that you can update your device to the latest version of Android and give it a new lease of life. In this post, we’ll walk you through the process of updating an old Android tablet from Android KitKat to Android Nougat.

Before we get started, it’s important to note that this process involves rooting your tablet. Rooting your device can be risky and voids the warranty, so proceed with caution. Also, make sure that you have downloaded all the necessary files before starting the process.

To check the current status of your tablet, use an app called Root Checker Basic. If you don’t currently have root access, you’ll need to download four files to upgrade to Android Nougat. To install these files, you’ll need to bypass the Android security by going to Settings > Security and clicking on “Allow installation from apps from unknown sources.”

Once you have downloaded the files, select “Stump Install” and open it. Tell it to brute force and wait until it asks you to reboot. Next, browse using the file manager again to the same folder where you had the downloads. Select the Twitter app (not the recovery image), install it, and open it. In the Twitter app, check all the boxes, including “use root access.”

Next, go to flash recovery from file and select the latest web image file you downloaded (not the apk file). Flash it and then reboot to recovery using the hard button method (hold the power button and the volume down, wait until the LG logo pops up, and release from both buttons. Quickly hold power plus volume up plus volume down again). You’ll then reboot into the teamwin application.

Go to wipe factory reset, wait for it to finish, then go back into the main twerk menu. Go to install, browse to your file folder from above, select the Lineage OS build zip file you downloaded, and install it. Then, reboot into the Lineage OS Nougat version.

To install apps, you’ll need Google Play Store. For this, you’ll need to download G apps and install via twip and then reboot. And that’s it! You can now sit back and enjoy Android Nougat on your slightly older Android device.

In conclusion, this is a great little option for all of you out there who own an Android device that has no official manufacturer software update, as this process is supplicable to most Android devices. However, please be aware that rooting your device can be risky, and you should proceed with caution.
