    I keep tabs on a daily it seems very close now probably this week from all I've heard. it's said to be mostly stability enhancements but I think there will be a couple of other nice little features added in the mix.

    If it happens I hope you guys will test it for me because after the start of 5 I won't go near it. Of course I did learn how to go back to the 4's so it was an education. Good luck with 5.1

    I just checked for an update this evening and OTA 5.1 is available on my Nexus. I have company coming over for dinner in about 10 minutes so I'm going to wait to download it later this evening after my friend is gone. Figured it would be rude if I was playing with my tablet and not talking to my company. LOL

    Update. Dinner is done and I''m downloading and installing 5.1 right now.

    OTA was waiting when I got home tonight. Installed it and it feels so much faster. Miles better than 5.0.2 was.

    Got it tonight and yes, it feels faster for me too.

    UPDATE 3/17: The other N7 in my household just got it. Updating now... Hope it helps the lag. The other wasn't before or after.

    just flashed that factory image and waiting for android to upgrade

    *update, bootloader wouldn't flash so I skipped it since it shared the same 4.23 as the one from 5.0.2; I also skipped flashing userdata too

    Just got 5.1 upgrade OTA. All installed ok and so far Chrome doesn't appear to keep hanging. It did seem to hang quite a lot on forums running vBulletin software. Tried the same sites again and so far so good.

    Nexus 7 2012.

    I've been checking into how to flash 5.1 to my N7 and was going to do it tomorrow when I had time. My N7 has been near useless since getting Lollipop and figured it wouldn't really matter if I bricked it doing the flash. Woke up this morning and I had the OTA waiting! Installing now. Can't wait to see how it reacts. I'll try to get back later today with first impressions.

    Tried twice to update just gives me an error after a few seconds then boots back into 5.02 ?
    3 rd time about 1/3 of install then dead robot and error ??
    This because I rooted my device ?

    if you're trying to download the OTA then yes being rooted will be a problem. you'll have to unroot and flash stock 5.0.2 to install an OTA

    This isn't an in-depth look, but 5.1 is far better than 5.0.2. Now, having said that, it still froze on me using Chrome. Had to hold the power button till it rebooted. I hadn't cleared the system cache after the install. I have done that now, will have to run it some more. I haven't put Facebook back on yet. Way to leary of bringing it back to its knees again. I may try it in awhile. At this point still considering Cyanogen if 5.1 still sucks.

    Anyone try using the Dolphin browser since the update? All I get now is blank screen on sites I visit. Pretty annoying.

    Been having an issue since update. Whenever tablet goes to sleep, only way to wake it up is to hold down power button and reset device. Anyone else having issues. I got the update on Wednesday I believe.

    I've got the same issue. I've now tried Fire fox and it seems to work.

    Do you need to install 5.02 before 5.1?

    Flashed from 4.4.4 to 5.1 using Wugs toolkit yesterday. So far, it's working fine on my 2012. One caveat, using the Facebook app still causes problems with lag and freezes, so I uninstalled the app and use the web version of Facebook and that works well. 5.1 doing much better than 5.0 or 5.0.2 ever did for me.

    5.1 seems to have fixed my complaints. Chrome works now and the rest of the system seems much smoother and faster.

    Have had 5.1for a few days now. Overall the system runs much more smoothly. Chrome not hanging now. It does sometimes get stuck briefly loading pages and the spinning circle stops briefly but it does recover and carry on.

    Well worth updating.
