Spare Me From “Product Guys”Editor’s note: Guest contributor Aaron Harris is a co-founder of Tutorspree, the marketplace for tutoring. Follow him @harris, or take a lesson from him on Tutorspree. We’re seeing people move away from finance and law and towards a culture of building things. It’s great to see more people seek careers in technology. The problem, I find, is that so many people approach the transition poorly. But that claim generally comes with a fundamental misunderstanding of what it means to do product. And here’s my dark secret—a year and a half ago, I was sort of one of those “product guys.” When I decided I wanted to lead product, I went and talked to friends who were product managers. Realistically speaking, there are certain people who will never be able to lead product of any kind. Read About Face. Even with this as a starting point, you’re never guaranteed to become great at product. So, “product guys:” nobody is going to believe you or take you seriously until you prove it.
Factory Images for Nexus Devices - AndroidThis page contains binary image files that allow you to restore your Nexus device's original factory firmware. You will find these files useful if you have used the Android Open-Source Project, flashed custom builds on your device, and wish to return that device to its factory state. These files are for use only on your personal Nexus devices and may not be disassembled, decompiled, reverse engineered, modified or redistributed by you or used in any way except as specifically set forth in the license terms that came with your device. Flashing Instructions To flash a device using one of the system images below (or one of your own), you need the latest fastboot tool. From a compiled version of the Android Open Source Project. Once you have the fastboot tool, add it to your PATH environment variable (the flash-all script below must be able to find it). Caution: Flashing a new system image deletes all user data. To flash a system image: Once the script finishes, your device reboots.
