NVIDIA Releases Marshmallow Update To Original Shield Tablet (Updated: The update has been Pulled from the servers)

Nvidia-shield-tablet-k1-630x303

NVIDIA has announced that it has started rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the original Shield tablet today. The update should go live for everybody in the upcoming days. The update is almost the same as the one for the Shield Tablet K1 in terms of features.

Except for standard Android 6.0 Marshmallow features, the company included new camera app that has redesigned user interface, real-time HD image effects and improved burst photo functionality. Now on Tap and improved app permissions are included as well as the ability to integrate microSD cards with main internal storage.

However, be careful you don’t wipe all your data. Before you do the update make sure to backup all your data to a microSD card. After you do the update there are two ways of setting it up. Portable Storage, which does not delete any data off your SD card, or Internal Storage, which will wipe all your SD card data. Obviously, you wouldn’t want to accidentally do that, which is why backing up before is so important.

An important Note taken from the Nvidia Support forums:

We have temporarily turned off the OTA update until we understand why a few users are losing WiFi connection after updating their tablet to OTA 4.0. For any users unable to recovery their WiFi after performing an update, can you please try the following troubleshooting steps and let me know if any of the solutions worked for you:

-Reboot your tablet 2-3 times. If this fails, power cycle your tablet 3-4 times (not reboot but complete power off). If this does not work, charge your tablet to 100% and attempt again a couple of times or so.
-Factory reset your tablet. Make sure you backup any important files before you perform this step.
-A couple of users reporting their WiFI coming back after leaving their tablet powered off for a few hours. Try leaving your tablet powered off for a few hours and then turn the device back on.

If all of these steps fails, please email me a screenshot of the Advanced WiFi page by going into Android Settings -> Wi-Fi -> click on the three dots on the top right hand corner to bring up the menu and select “Advanced”. On the Advanced W-Fi page, take a screenshot and email the picture to driverfeedback@nvidia.com. Let me know which tablet you have and whether you attempted some or all of the troubleshooting steps above. Last but not least, please include your GeForce forums username in your email. Thank you.
