I just tried to update my Nexus 9 from Android 7 to 7.1 Unfortunately the system now seems to be in an endless loop of "Google" screen and black screen (maybe rebooting?) Goes on for hours, nothing happens... So far i found out this was a big issue back then for the Android 6 Update - and sometimes the system was that fucked up, that the only solution was sending it back to the retailer... Didn't find anything about the same problem with 7.1 - and i hope Google didn't repeat its big mistake here??? Would be happy about any help or tips :(

  • Did you try clearing the cache from recovery ? – esQmo_ Dec 21 '16 at 2:55
  • yep, also tried a factory reset - didn't work either – Patrick Kelleter Dec 21 '16 at 4:57

Applying "Rescue OTA for my Nexus 9 using Windows 10 on my laptop" works. But one must follow the instructions very carefully, and if need be, download the needed Android software to your laptop. I have to admit it took 3 or so tries but perseverance paid off. Thank you to whomever posted the 2 page step by step instruction solution. Needless to say my Nexus 9 was to valuable to me to be left stuck on the Google Logo.

  • That's not very useful as an answer, because what Google returns is different depending on your region and search history, and will change over time. We're interested in self-contained answers that will continue to be useful to other visitors, not just throwaway suggestions that will only work once. – Dan Hulme May 4 '17 at 14:26
