Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 OTA update out now - factory image too!

Four days after mentioning the update to the public, Google is now pushing Android 5.1.1 to the Nexus 9 tablet. This HTC-made device suffered apparent issues in-between Android 5.0 and this newest update, and this newest update is ready to roll to bring the fixes. In addition to the OTA (over the air) update, the Factory Image for this software has also been posted for your self-loaded satisfaction. OTA will only work for you if you've got a completely pure, un-edited bit of operating system under the hood.

It's time for a Factory Image link now as well. Straight from Google through us to you. Load at will. This update should bring build LMY47X to you for bug-fixing goodness.

If you've not yet worked with Android 5.1, you'll have a few tiny feature changes coming your way. One is in Interruptions. You can now change your "Interruptions" settings to bring you notifications only when you get Events and Reminders, Calls, or Messages, or any combination of the three.

You can also set your Calls to only interrupt you for certain unique contacts. You can set up your Priority Interruptions clock for an indefinite time period, "until your downtime ends," or for a number of hours.

You can use Screen Pinning now, if you weren't able to before. This keeps one screen stuck to your display until you unpin it. Screen Pinning will exist in your Settings – Security panel.

Your Quick Settings will also have an update – you'll have drop-down menus near your Wi-Fi and Bluetooth buttons. Helpful!
