Trying Android 5.1 (Lollipop) update on my Nexus 7

My Nexus 7 tablet was running extremely well until I installed the Lollipop update. It went from being trusty and reliable to crashing and hanging every 2 minutes.  I applied some of the fixes such as clearing the system cache which helped a bit. I also put Advanced Task Killer in the tray and started using that to kill all processes **IF** I could get the thing to respond when I turned it on.

I had visions of taking it to the skeet range, yelling “Pull” and having someone toss it in the air.

I just noticed that a 5.1 update was available. I’m going to give that a try.

Update 3/20/15 – So far, I’m not impressed. The tablet is still slow when powering on and a range of apps are still giving the “application is not responding” error.. Nice try google, but no lollipop for you!
