    Android 5.1 has already "winged" to my Nexus 7 and it is now useless. I have a 2012 32gb with WiFi. I have tried all the fixes that I understand (forums are full of ideas that I don't understand enough to follow). I now need to purchase a new tablet. Most of the tablets I have looked at, Shield, Samsung Tab S, Asus Vivo Tabe and Asus MeMo, when I look at them at sites have kitkat 4 still installed. Will it update after I get it? Will it ruin them when it does? I use Crome for internet use, Kendle app, Google maps and a lot of Youtube. I don't need a super-fancy tablet, but I don want something reliable and that Google can't ruin. I loved my Nexus 7, it did everything I needed it to do.

    And you don't downgrade to KitKat because?

    It has not worked since the final upgade that Google did. It takes forever to load, it blanks out in the middle of any use. It can take 10 min to start up and sometimes doesn't load at all just "starting up apps". I just don't know enough to fix!!

    Don't know how to do that? Where can I find out how? And I understand that Nexus 7 will not be supported in the future, so this seems like the time for a change.

    Next time you get it running just do a factory reset. Settings - backup and reset. Note that the data will be lost. But I suspect it will come back to life.

    I just can't thank you enough!!!! It worked and my Nexus 7 is functioning again & with lollipop!! I have been looking on forums and reading a bunch of stuff that didn't make any sense and managed it with 2 simple sentences. Again thank you so much.

    You're quite welcome. Upgrades can do that to some devices, especially major ones. Factory resets are a wonder in that case. ;)

    Exactly, My much loved, much praised, daily used Nexus 7 gave up the fight and turned into a brick! So I have bought a lenova 8 machine. At present seems wonderful. Priced at £ 132 brilliant purchase.

    Sorry that didn't work for you, but happy you found a replacement. I will put it on my list for when I am ready to replace my N7.
