thank you all for the warning.  My N7 has been prompting me over a month for the 5.1 update, and I tried it, but it didn't work because I was rooted.  I put off unrooting as I was in no rush to update.  Now I won't!

Anyone know of a VR headset for a Nexus 7?  All I can find are DIY instructions.

I had the same thing but it was Hangouts which was disabled, so I enabled, updated, restarted, problem fixed. Today there was an update for the clock app. Installed and the problem came back. Uninstalled update, restarted, problem fixed.

While waiting for this Windows 8.1 laptop I'm using to ever so slowly update, I'm quickly reminded how much I appreciate the speed at which my N7 installs updates (once they arrive that is). Took a newly acquired refurb N7 from 4.4.2 to 5.1.1, with all the various updates in between, through the paces in about 20 minutes the other night.

Agreed, which is why I decided buy a second 2013 model as a backup. IMHO, it's the best 7" tablet ever made. For $114.95 at A4C is was, for me, money well spent.

After 5.1.1 Google wants to cut off updates for our 2nd Gen Nexus 7. We will be forced to look elsewhere for updates to Android.

WiFi on 2.4ghz interferes with Bluetooth on the N7.  If you have a 5ghz wifi available, that will work with bluetooth on.

Hey guys I'm currently rooted running stock. I am using TWRP. I have gotten the OTA for 5.1 but can't get to install as it goes to TWRP when it tries to install. Where does the file live and can I just flash it or do I need to download the .zip and flash that?

No M preview for us? Uh? It's only a 2013 device too. Is it because they bricked a load of devices with L?
Nexus 5 came out in October 2013,and gets M, is it a sign that Google thinks that M may break the nexus 7 possibly? Seems odd to me. I'd rather experiment on my tablet than daily phone too. Bring on the unofficial builds!
