Earlier this month, NVIDIA began pushing an over-the-air update for its Shield Tablet, updating the slate to Android 6.0 - but the company quickly stopped the update after users reported issues with Wi-Fi once they were patched up to Marshmallow.

Considering most tablets are Wi-Fi only, this is a big issue - forcing NVIDIA to stop the update. But now, an NVIDIA representative took to the company's official forums, announcing: "we're confident we have corrected the problem and are releasing a new Software Update". The new update is available for the original Shield Tablet, and the revised Shield Tablet K1, with software v4.0 and v1.2, respectively.
