Android 5.1.1 factory images now available for Wi-Fi only Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013), Nexus 10

Android 5.1.1 factory images now available for Wi-Fi only Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013), Nexus 10
Android 5.1.1 (build number LMY47V) factory images are now available for the Wi-Fi only versions of the 2012 and 2013 editions of the Nexus 7, as well as for the Google Nexus 10. The Android 5.1.1 factory image is also available for the Nexus Player. Compared to Android 5.1.0 Lollipop, the 5.1.1 version of Android doesn't bring any new features, being limited to a range of bug fixes and performance improvements. You can grab the factory images by following the source link below.

Although a large portion of the Nexus tablet line-up was only recently updated to Android 5.1.0 Lollipop, it looks like Google's software engineers are still hard at work providing software updates for Nexus tablets.

Based on Google's previous factory image release patterns, Nexus 7 versions with mobile data radios should also get the Android 5.1.1 factory images in the near future. We're also hearing reports that the Nexus 10 has started receiving the 5.1.1 OTA update, and it's very likely that Google will soon start rolling OTA updates for the other tablets mentioned above as well.

It's very interesting to see that Google is updating the Nexus 10, a tablet launched more than a couple of years ago, to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, while the both the Wi-Fi only and the LTE versions of the Google Nexus 9, the most recent Nexus tablet, is still running Android 5.0.1 Lollipop.

They went to 5.1 before anyone else knew what it was.

He's talking about 5.1.1, not 5.1

Me thinks Google is shipping. Perhaps Google should do like Apple with ios 9 and focus on fine tuning Android over adding new features. This whole lollipop thing has been a disaster.

Not if you go to 5.1. Seriously, I had one and know exactly what you are going through. Try it. Pretend 5.0 didn't exist!

Do these two things (use google to know how): 1) boot into recovery and wipe cache partition (you won't lose any data), 2) enable developer settings and set the maximum number of background processes to 3. Optionally, disable window animations too. And of course update to 5.1.1. If you can afford a factory reset (be careful t pool because this means losing any data you have, including application data, which may include games progess and so on), do it after the update.

Too late for me, Google has already bricked my Nexus 7.2 with 5.0.2. Moved on to a Windows tablet.
