Last week Nvidia pushed out their OTA update for the Tegra K1 Shield tablet that featured plenty of bug fixes and optimizations. Today Nvidia has pushed out another update but this time it is for their Nvidia Shield Android TV unit. Sorry, no LTE version of their Shield Tablet update as of yet.
Nvidia has pushed out a new OTA update, that being update 1.2, for their Tegra K1 Shield tablet this afternoon. This update, which is mainly bug fixes and optimizations, bumps the Android version up to 6.0.1 for this particular Shield device. Before anyone asks however, the LTE version’s update is still being worked on, so you’ll be sticking with Android 5.1.1 for a bit longer.
While the newer Nvidia Shield K1 Tablets already come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the original Shield tablet has been waiting patiently to match its brother in OS version. Today marks the first day that Nvidia has begun pushing out an OTA update for the original Shield Tablets to get their Marshmallow goodness as well.
Whether you are getting ready to send in your Shield Tablet or not because of the voluntary recall that was announced this morning, Nvidia has also pushed out a new OTA update which is labeled as version 3.1. This update brings Android 5.1.1 to your Shield Tablet among other various tweaks and improvements.
Nvidia Shield Portable owners are starting to get an optional update rolling out to them today which brings with it Android 5.1 ad Chromecast support among other features.

Nvidia is pushing out a new update for their Shield Android TV console which brings with it a lot of requested enhancements, fixes, and upgrades to various aspects of their OS and software. Depending on what you use your Shield console for, this update is a much welcomed improvement overall.
The other day when Nvidia finally admitted to the 500GB model of the Nvidia Shield Android TV console actually existing and being real for consumers to purchase soon, one other tidbit of information was revealed as well. This was that the Android 5.1 update for the Shield tablet would be arriving soon, before the launch of the Shield console unit. Well it appears that ‘soon’ has turned out to be today.
