Google certainly hasn’t forgotten the Nexus 7, more specifically the 2013 edition. The latest build now available is Android 5.1.1 (LMY48G). There isn’t an OTA yet, so your only option for now is manually flash via fastboot. If you you have done this before, which I am sure most of you have, then this should be a breeze. Remember to download the system images under the code name “razor”.

For those who don’t want to get their hands dirty, be sure to check your device every so often to see if the build is available via Settings > About Tablet > System Updates.

As always when performing updates of any kind, be sure to backup any data you don’t want to loose just incase things go haywire during the update.
