NVIDIA has begun rolling out an Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update to its Shield Tablet, which offers performance improvements and fixes for an audio bug.

The update weighs in at 767MB and contains the latest Lollipop tweaks as well as NVIDIA’s own bug fixes, performance improvements, and system wide optimizations. The move from 5.1 to 5.1.1 Lollipop is mostly about fixing the OS’ annoying memory leak problem, so users won’t find any fun new features to play around with this time.

NVIDIA has now also addressed a lingering audio issue with the tablet with this latest update. Users had been reporting that the speakers were emitting a high pitched whine when loading up certain games, which should now be fixed.

The update should appear under system updates in the settings menu, but the rollout might take a few days to reach you, depending on your region.
