Android 5.0.2 OTA update begins landing on Google Nexus 7 (2012) tablet

Google Nexus 7

Good news today for Google Nexus 7 (2012) owners who have been eagerly anticipating Android Lollipop. Wheresa most recent Nexus devices were upgraded to Android 5.0.1, the Nexus 7 (2012) tablet either remained stuck on Android 5.0 or on Android 4.4.4 KitKat. With Android 5.0.2 now in AOSP (but only for this one device), the Android 5.0.2 OTA update rollout has slowly begun.

Better yet, a changelog for Android 5.0.2 has now been published, giving us a better idea of what is included in this latest release. Bugs affecting alarms seem to dominate the update:

  • 0ac9664 : Fix bad alarm delivery
  • a6e7e6b : Tune delivery and batching of alarms
  • 5a995f9 : Properly recognize repeating wakeup alarms

Another fixes an issue with the tablet’s internal storage while another appears to improve the firmware update process.

As expected, Android 5.0.2 appears to be strictly a maintenance release. It not only includes Android 5.0.1 fixes but additional ones that look to have been particular to the Nexus 7 (2012) tablet.

As usual, the update appears to be gradual. If you have not received the update yet, you’ll likely see it in the next few days. You can also trigger a manual check via Settings -> About tablet -> System Updates -> Check now. Sadly, it will not make it come to your device any faster.

Has your Google Nexus 7 (2012) received the Android 5.0.2 OTA update yet? Let us know below.
