Rubbing salt into the wounds of Nexus 9 owners after offering them a paltry update to Android 5.0.2, is Google posting the Android 5.0.2 (Build LRX22L) factory images for the LTE and Wi-Fi models of the Nexus 9. The images – and the associated binaries – are now available to download and flash to your Nexus 9.
The updates are available to download now, with the Nexus 9 LTE factory image weighing in at 835MB, while the Nexus 9 Wi-Fi factory image weighs in at a trim 805MB sans all those pesky LTE radio files that you don’t need.
Head over to the Google Nexus Factory Images download page to grab your update.

does it has any thing to do with NVIDIATegra K1 64 bit mobile processor 0_o
Very likely. They’ve had issues with Nvidia and source etc previously
google’s choice to use the SOC though
Pretty sure this is a first for Google. Can’t ever recall them releasing a timely update for a tablet with mobile data. It’s normally months later.
This is sending mixed signals about the stability and quality of Android 5. Whilst I like the new OS this mess of different versions for different devices even within their own Nexus range is quite disgusting.
I am sure Google will sort it out but a big shakeup is required because this is fast becoming a public relations nightmare.
Its a joke really, Google can’t even keep its 6 nexus devices updated (3 tablets, 3 phones). So how the hell can they demand that OEM’s keep the devices updated? They sell?
Lead by example….. Clearly not!
2 different Nexus 7s plus a Nexus 9 and Nexus 10. 7 different tablet skus incl the mobile versions which get different images to their WiFi counterparts.
But I agree that Google aren’t doing an acceptable job keeping them updated. Not to mention the discraceful bugs in Lollipop. I just moved my daughter’s Nexus 5 back to Kit Kat to stop the random reboots and bootloops!
