Scroll down to the 'Downloads’ section

Click on each link to download:

  • target/product/maguro/boot.img
  • target/product/maguro/system.img
  • target/product/maguro/userdata.img

Get merge-gnexus-blobs script

The script is available from:;a=blob_plain;f=merge-gnexus-blobs;hb=linaro_android_4.1.1

or from git:

git clone git://
cd tuna
git checkout -b linaro_android_4.1.1 origin/linaro_android_4.1.1

Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet, since the script downloads non-free binaries and tools to extract images.

Run merge-gnexus-blobs script, giving the directory containing the .img files as its sole argument.

The script will do the remaining bits for you, including flashing the phone.

WARNING There is no guarantee whatsoever that the build will work. If it breaks your phone, you get to keep both pieces.

  • Hold down the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons at the same time, and turn on the phone
  • Use the Volume Up button to select “Recovery mode”, then press the power button to launch it. Wait for recovery to come up.
