    What's this? Apparently, Google sneakily rocked out a new and previously unknown Android 5.0.2 update for the original Nexus 7 2012 WiFi tablet. This is obviously meant to address some of the bugs which Android 5.0 brought to the party for the venerable tablet.

    This version is LRX22G and specifically addresses "issues with MountService which should now start before performBootDexOpt [and] changes related to NAND have also been pushed. Fstrim, introduced in Android 4.3, caused some serious issues on Lollipop… devices with slow NAND should now have a noticeable performance boost.” ~ XDA Developers

    Here's a link to grab it for a manual update: Google

    Looking forward to receiving the 5.0.2 OTA update for my Nexus 7 2012 WiFi. Been anxiously waiting since Lollipop was first announced. But I am glad that I did not received the bug-laden version that has been turning other devices into paperweights.

    Happy Holidays to Everyone!!! Be safe through the remaining days of 2014, and into the New Year.
