Nvidia has rolled out the Android 5.1.1 update for its famous Shield Tablet, with the OTA taking 767 MB space. This update is more about stability and bug fixes, rather than new functionality.

System wide optimizations and audio fixes are quoted and it appears that the biggest fix here is the one involving a speaker problem. This year quite a few Shield Tablets users found that the speaker on their slate was making screeching sounds when loading games. With a bit of luck, the update will solve that problem. Other than that the update brings the Shield Tablet to Android 5.1.1.

Right now a 16 GB WiFi Shield Tablet costs $299, while the 32 GB LTE model goes for $299. Both are listed as “out of stock” on the official Nvidia site, but I’m sure you can find them at retailers. This product was released last summer, with a Tegra K1 CPU Inside, Android 4.4.2 KitKat and stereo speakers, plus 2 GB of RAM and a 5 MP back and front camera.
