We aren’t sure at the moment what — if anything — is tangibly new in this firmware, but a new build of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, LMY48G, has just showed up for the 2013 Nexus 7 (WiFi). We’ve seen hundreds of scattered reports that OTA Lollipop updates are effectively bricking 2013 Nexus 7 devices, so maybe this new build is some kind of remedy for that situation.

Deal: Get Pixelbook at 25% off: $750!

You can get the new version over at Google’s factory image download page, and be sure to check out our nifty guide on how to install this factory image on your device as well.
