NVIDIA SHIELD tablet updated with Stagefright patch, other improvements


The Stagefright exploit has gotten a lot of people worried, affecting nearly all Android devices currently being used. Manufacturers have been scrambling to update their devices with a patch for the exploit, and NVIDIA is the latest to do so.

The NVIDIA SHIELD tablet is being updated to software version 3.1.1, which includes a¬†Stagefright patch. But that’s not all. NVIDIA also included system-wide optimizations and fixes, including an improvement in battery life and Netflix playback. There’s also a new controller firmware update, and the regular “stability and performance improvements” listed in every update.

If you own the device, check for updates and start downloading the latest. Even ignoring the Stagefright patch, it should be a great update for performance.
