From here, you are now allowed to receive VoIP calls on your Nexus 7. But wait! You should try making calls using Nexus 7 ! Well, just go on with this tutorial.

Do not forget to download the free ExDialer from Google Play app store as well. This program will allow you to dial a number. It is a virtual phone pad on your Nexus 7.
  5. Now, download FrameworkFlasher-MOD. You can search for this program online. Once downloaded, it will be surely in a zip file. Just use a program which can extract a zip file compatible with Nexus 7. You can try programs such as 7-Zip.
  6. Using a file explorer on your Nexus 7 (preferable File Expert), look for /system/framework. After finding it, you will get into the framework-res.apk. Now, make sure to copy the whole file from there and paste it on the place-framework-res-here folder. This is the file you just extracted.
  7. From the extracted file, look for the RunMe program there. Click on it to re-gather the files you prepared for framework-res.
  8. After that, there will be an APK file just beneath the files-to-edit folder. Just go to framework-res.apk>res>values. From there, click on the bools.xml folder.
  9. Look for the FALSE command. Make sure to change it to TRUE.
  10. Save and close the window and again, open the RunMe application. It will help you recompile the changes you have made.
  11. From there, choose Option number 3 to activate the APK you modified a while ago.
  12. After that, choose Option number 4 as well to load update.zip file.
  13. After having the new update.zip folder, copy and paste it to the directory of your Nexus 7. After that, just install the zip from the SD card and reboot the system. You should now be able to receive and make calls using Nexus 7.
