Nexus 7 tablet slow to boot after upgrade.

by Bazebolljim / January 19, 2015 6:10 AM PST

Last week my Nexus 7 tablet was upgraded from 4.xx to 5.xx. Every since then my boot time slowed from two minutes to four minutes. I tried removing everything from startup, but that only shaved about five seconds off the boot. It acts like it doesn't have enough RAM. Any thoughts or suggestions?

To remove delays and see what it does here I'll turn off my WiFi/BT for a boot time. Here goes:

Airplane mode boot time: 1 minute 15 seconds.

Seems fine here. I never times the boot time before so it feels about the same time.

If you have apps that want to call their mothership, well you know what to do.

It's a Nexus 7 32GB Gen 1 that got the Lollipop 5.0.2 just a few days ago.

I keep it very clean, Storage reports 27.58GB Total space and Available is 24.50GB.
Device memory shows 915MB RAM and Free is 661MB.
