Nvidia Tablet Update to Marshmallow out and on Hold
I recently got my self a second hand Nvidia Shield Tablet. I was looking for nice and affordable small tablet, so the Nvidia Shield seem the right choice for me.
The version that I own is the first generation, and since they are the same as the second generation when comes to specs. I decided to go for the cheaper option. Plus the stylus is a nice touch as well since I quite like to doodle on my tablet.
To avoid confusion there are two versions of the same tablet, the Nvidia Shield Tablet and the Shield K1 Tablet, the K1 is the newest gen and there are the same when it comes to specs, same GPU, same CPU. The only difference is the lack of stylus and some minor cosmetic changes on the last gen K1 tablet.

I quite happy to know that they didn’t forget about the first gen tablets and that the update is already here. The update started rolling on 2nd of February (yesterday).
Unfortunately, there a problem with the update since it breaks the wi-fi as some users reported at Nvidia Forums. So they are holding the update until they find what’s happening. Luckily enough I did download the Update but it didn’t let me flash the update.
