It’s not just you, latest Nexus 9 update is giving everyone error message



A day after Lollipop started rolling out for everyone the Nexus 9 is getting an update. The Nexus 9 shipped with Lollipop, but that doesn’t mean Google is done with it. The OTA update that many Nexus 9 users are receiving is build LRX21Q. Unfortunately the update is giving users a bit of a scare.

Many users, including our own Chris Chavez, have reported an error message in recovery. Don’t be alarmed. The device will reboot after a while back to LRX21L ad all will be fine. You can either unlock and manually apply the latest firmware (lose everything in the process) or wait for google to release another update to address this. Just know that it’s not your fault. It’s not your fault.

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.

  1. This is a first, right? A Nexus OS update simply not installing? That’s a bit troubling.

    1. Very troubling. Everything feels a bit…. rushed.

      1. I usually hit the “Check now” button on my Nexus a few times per day after a new Android release, but I’m not so comfortable getting Lollipop right away this time. Maybe I’ll wait a bit and see what issues pop up.

  2. I thought I messed something up since it’s w common occurrence being a flashaholic but then I realized I haven’t even rooted it yet, let alone unlocked the bootloader haha

  3. Eh. I sent mine back for a refund after 4 days with it. They seemed to have rushed this one out too fast. Bad LCD light bleed, gets very hot, even with doing very little, battery life wasn’t good, and when I went to do the factory reset before sending it back it froze for 90 seconds…

    My light bleed.

  4. Lol, Google. Do you even QA?

  5. I got a great unit…runs amazing and no hardware defect.

  6. You can reboot it faster by either holding the power button or pressing power and volume up together to enter the recovery menu and choosing the reboot option.

  7. Does anyone know where I can get that tablet’s wallpaper?
