Verizon Nexus 7 update brings Android 5.1.1, Stagefright patch


After months of certification delays and other craziness, Verizon began selling an LTE Nexus 7 months after its initial debut. Now we’ve got some good news for the folks that ended up buying the Nexus 7 from VZW.

Verizon says that its LTE Nexus 7 is now getting an update to build LMY48L that includes a bump up to Android 5.1.1, complete with a material design UI, refreshed Recent Apps menu, app notification settings, and more. The update also includes “Android security patches,” which is likely code for a Stagefright patch.

This update is rolling out over the air and can be grabbed by going into Settings > About tablet > System updates. And with goodies like Android 5.1.1 and a Stagefright patch, you VZW Nexus 7 users should probably install this new update as soon as possible.
