As a large chunk of Nexus 9 owners know at this point, the waiting has been long and hard for an official over-the-air update to the latest version of Android, 5.1 Lollipop. For a Nexus device, it’s natural to be yearning for updates as soon as possible, but that simply doesn’t look to be happening with this device. In a move that is sure to leave some owners groaning, Google has today started rolling out a Nexus 9 Android 5.0.2 update.
The update is only a small bump up from the 5.0.1 build – it’s build number LRX22L, too, if you were wondering. It’s likely a combination of various small bugfixes, thrown together into one quick-and-easy update package (explaining why it weighs in at just 22MB, compared to massive OS updates we’ve seen for larger leaps).
You can manually grab the OTA at the source link below, or you can wait for it to reach your device (though this may take a few days, or even weeks, due to staged rollouts). Considering how small the update is, there’s likely no rush to get updated as soon as possible.
Now, with this out of the way, the wait for the Nexus 9 Android 5.1 update can continue. Seriously, Google, where is that OTA?
