    Yeah, but that's too many steps compared to the quick and easy way I was able to do it before. I did figure out that I can draw down the single top curtain (or whatever you're supposed to call it) and then click on the blue dot and change it there. Easier than your way, but not as easy as it was before. So far the only improvement I've seen is the on screen keyboard.

    It's only a one-time settings change, though. Right? Or do you change it frequently?

    Yes, I do change it frequently, depending upon what I'm looking at and what position I'm in.

    Wow - look at the reviews for this lollipop thing on CNet! And I take it I can't go back to 4.4 either. Damn, I said I wasn't go to download it and then I did it anyway, on both of my 7's too. They've like destroyed Android in one swell foop.

    I can't find a feature I use all the time, the screen rotation lock-unlock.
    Right... google should be a better friend to you... if you google "android 5.1 auto-rotate" (without quotes, obv), the first 15+ results all give the solution.
    You have to first turn on auto-rotate in << Settings... Accessibility... >> Once that's enabled, the auto-rotate icon will appear in Quick Settings.

    Yes, you can revert back to KitKat if you wanted. Again, google shows loads of websites that say how to do it.

    Thanks, Beach. Hopefully I can get back KK without too much trouble. They were saying you can't get it back on CNet. I'll crank up my google machine.

    Nope, I don't see any easy way to go back to KK. OK, let me try to patch the POS up a tiny bit with your other suggestion.

    Your second tip, Beach - Auto rotate was already on under settings- accessibility. So where's my icon? What's Quick Settings, the blue button? That's where I was before.

    Jeez, everything's screwed up now, even typing. This seems to be the only place on the internet with people who actually like the lollipop. I wish I'd looked at all the other places before downloading it.



    Add: I found the rotate icon. The trick is to pull the pulldown TWICE.

    Things seem better with 5.1.1. By 5.9 everything should be all sorted out.

    I'm really pleased you got at least some of your frustrations sorted.
    Cheers!

    I don't see any improvement in it over KitKat, though, with the exception of a slightly clearer keyboard, Beach.

    I turned on my N7 today and got the 5.1.1 update. I've experienced no issues at all (and didn't expect any)...very snappy and no lag whatsoever. It's still a fantastic device after 2 years!

    No issues at all with 5.1.1, I OTA'd it last week and everything is great. Every Lollipop release has worked better than the previous one for me.

    Google the "Nexus Root Toolkit". It will let you switch to any build your Nexus model has ever supported, from 4.3.x on.

    Same for me. Runs fast and smooth.

    New image for the WiFi up on the official site 😁 LMY48M. I just now flashed it and re-rooted, no problem yet. If you've got the LTE version, LMY48P is up there for you - the same update, according to droid-life .

    Mine just got updated to LMY48P. I just got updated to 5.1.1 a few weeks ago. What changed in this latest update?

    All under-the-hood stuff, apparently - minor bug fixes and "security enhancement," the changelog says. It seems this is the first of Google's promised monthly updates.
