If you have yet to get your hands on 5.1.1 for the Nexus 9 tablet, you have three options. Option 1, you can keep waiting until the OTA hits. Option 2, you can now download the official factory image and do a clean wipe and installation of Android 5.1.1. For those that don’t want to wait for the OTA but don’t want to have to do a full factory wipe either, you also have a third option: You can down the OTA link, as it has now been captured and made available for your sideloading pleasure!

For those unfamiliar with flashing a Nexus image, you’ll want to check out our guide. While the guide was written with Android 5.0 in mind, the same basic steps still apply. Of course it is important to note that while flashing is rather safe if you follow instructions properly, things can go wrong if you don’t — and so you should proceed at your risk.
For those on Android 5.1.1 already, what do you think of the update so far?
