After hearing all the reports of bricked devices after updating I was nervous as heck when I saw the notification to update to 5.1 but I took a chance and I've successfuly updated to 5.1
Anyone upgraded to 5.1 ? Plz tell us about it n should I upgrade to it ?
Nexus (ASUS manufactured) models stuck on Google screen
Nexus 7 3G 32GB 2012 Model
My device is working fine till yesterday (19th April 2015) from the date of purchase (3rd October 2013). I am using this device for around 18 months without any issues. Recently (one week before) I have updated it to Android 5.1.
Yesterday (19th April 2015) afternoon I have plugged in for charging the device. After hours while removing it from the charger I have noticed that it is in nexus logo screen.
I thought that the device would have restarted, so i have kept it for a while. After 2 to 3 hours it is still in nexus logo screen without any change.
I have switched off the device and switched on. Then the device is not booting after Google & nexus logo screen.
I have tried switch off and switch on for 4 to 5 times but there is no progress. Device is not booting after Google & nexus logo screen.
Today (20th April 2015) morning, I have contacted ASUS Customer support team; they have asked me to do the wipe data/factory reset. After doing the wipe data/factory reset, the device is behaving wired like switching on, Google logo screen comes and switching off repeatedly (rebooting again and again but not going beyond Google logo screen).
Then I have taken my device to ASUS service center, registered the issue and raised an RMA. Now I am waiting for the repair cost quotation from ASUS service center.
Today (20th April 2015) evening, I have checked in Google to know how many devices are affected with the same issue and shocked that most of the Nexus 7 devices are affected.
Agitated users have also taken to Twitter to post complains about their bricked Nexus devices with the hashtag - #NEXUS7BRICKED
Please post these issues in various media until Google or ASUS is responding to this issue and fixing the affected device with free of cost.

AnonD-87543, 30 Mar 2015Does anyone get 5.1 lollipop update ?? No, not yet.
Have owned the Nexus 7 for over a year now. One of the best 7" tablets out, was the absolute best for under $250 when I bought it a year ago. Runs everything no problem, display is beautiful and sturdy(has survived many falls crack-free). Android 5.0 cut into the battery life however, it lasts ~70% as long compared to KitKat. But its nice getting all the android updates before anyone else. +1 would definitely recommend
