Google Nexus Player

Episode 1173

Abdiel from Rochester, NY

Abdiel is having trouble updating his Nexus Player to Android 5.1. He gets a red triangle error. Leo says that over the air updates require more storage because it will need to expand and install the update. So he may need to restore the player before he can update it. If that doesn't work, it's possible that the OTA download is bad. Google has released the 5.1 image for download, so he should try that. Abdiel will also need something called "Fast Boot" on his machine.
