10 Things to Know About the Nexus 7 Android 6.0.1 Update



Nexus 7 Android 6.0.1 Features

Nexus 7 Android 6.0.1 Features

The Android 6.0.1 update also brings some new features and security patches to the Nexus 7 2013. 

Android 6.0.1 also brings Google's December security update along with it. This will help protect your device from malware and other dangerous exploits. If you value security, you probably want to download the Android 6.0.1 update. 

The update also brings some changes to the UI on the Nexus 7. The home and back navigation buttons are now pushed to the left corner of the device. The multitasking key is now in the right corner. This is going to make it easier to use with one hand because the buttons are situated where your thumb will most likely be. 

The update also brings 200 new emoji to the Nexus 7's keyboard, an important change to Do Not Disturb, and it also links Bluetooth and System Volume Settings. Not a bad haul for an incremental update.

    Last night I get the update to android 6.01 (for Nexus 7, 2013). The update started to optimize about 77 apps. (normaly after an update it are about 125 apps). After optimazing the android system started and begin again optimizing apps, 41 this time. After that the optimzing get in a ‘loop’ and repeated itself time after time. Wich means Android starts optimizeing 41 apps, finish, android starts up and get optimizing 41 apps again. And again and again. I run this for more dan 4 hours and android is still optimizing. Stopping this is possible, but after starting the tablet again the android software start repeating again (and again).
    Do you know a solution fot this problem. It’s like yoy have locked yourself out of the house with all the keys in the house

    @ Piet Timmermans – I have the same problem… Even flash with the tool “nexus root toolkit” by wug fresh don’t really solve the problem because after a restart i have the same bootloop again…

    Hi! I have a Nexus 5 and upgraded to 6.0.1 and for some reason I can’t turn the Total Silence option off… I tried restarting the phone but the problem persists. Do you have any solutions? Thanks.

    I had the identical “looping” problem with my Nexus 7 and searched in vain for a solution on the Web. I tried several times to clear the cache, as was suggested by some Web commenters, but it didn’t work — the looping returned every time. The only thing I found that promised to be effective in ending the loop was a reset to factory settings. Reluctantly, I did it, but (of course) that required sacrificing all my data and purchased apps. (There was no chance of a backup before the factory reset; the “endless loop” prevented any sort of backup or other operation.) So, now I have an updated Nexus but with none of the useful apps or stored data I had before. And, as a bonus, the update yielded no discernible performance improvement whatsoever. Thanks a bunch to the people at Google or wherever who pushed out the update without field-testing it sufficiently to identify and solve a problem that, from the look of things, turns out to be a frequent occurrence.

    perhaps connecting the nexus to a computer, and then use the windows explorer to copy as much as you can to your computer. i’ve saved some data that way.

    I have the same bootloop problem. I’ve read many blogs and tried to wipe and re-image the device to no avail. Any help would be appreciated…

    When I click on Heritage Foundation news section an error comes up and says “an error occurred during the transport of information from the server.” Is this a tablet problem or a web site problem?

    Strange. I wasn’t aware there was an issue with 6.01 so I just let it get on with it. After 6.01 was installed, there were a number of monthly updates which, again, I just let it chug its way through them. Eventually, the upgrade and updates completed and everything seems fine.

    This is on the second generation Nexus 7 – this one has never been rooted, and not even been turned on in over six months.
