"Repositioned Navigation Buttons in Landscape mode" Why did you do this and how do I put the buttons back to where they should be, grouped together at the center where I won't accidentally hit them with my thumbs while I'm holding it? I think that was a bad design change.

I take it they are on the side, my nexus 5x has them there and I got used to it after a bit. However when the screen is 1920 x 1200 I doubt the wisdom of having them on the side? There is already a "spare bit" if you will on the bottom. Also if things are a bit jerky after the update it usually settles down after a couple of days. Hope this actually fixes the misc battery, although not mentioned in the description. I wonder how long us original ST owners actually end up waiting. Did the US LTE version even get the last update?

I've just updated and for at least half an hour the tablet was stuck in a bootloop. It did boot up in the end, but it's been quite "jerky" so far... I hope it gets better.

[quote="CasperHxly"]Mine wont even install the update it keeps saying error[/quote] Same here, I unrooted and restored stock recovery to get the installation process going (same procedure as always), but unfortunately, I always end up getting the "Error!" message after a while, thus having to manually turn off the system. I didn't have any issue like this with 1.1, and I can't really think of any substantial change to my system since then. Anyone got any tips?

Update went flawless for me, no problems at all. Just can't find any new power consumption optimization settings so I wish they'd tell us what exactly was changed. [quote="Panzerfaus"]Please change the buttons back my hands are so large I keep hitting them when I hold the tablet comfortably.[/quote] I think the buttons change is an an android change and not Nvidia's. Also they aren't so bad, I kind of like them there where they are now they actually make a lot more sense efficiency wise. I can quickly go back a page just by moving my thumb slightly.

[quote="Josh@NVIDIA"]For those getting an error attempting to download or install the OTA, are your devices rooted or stock?[/quote] Well, yes, like I said, I went through the motions, unrooting and flashing the stock recovery to even get to the update screen (without that it would just reboot as usual). As far as I can recall, this worked just fine for the 1.1 OTA update. Btw, someone over at XDA just posted his log about the same issue: "Verifying current system... "EMMC:/dev/block/platform/sdhci-tegra.3/by-name/LNX:6699412:2dedcfe2f04<very large hex>" has unexpected contents. E:Error in @/cache/recovery/block.map (Status 7) Installation aborted."
