Time has not been too kind for the Google Nexus 9 tablet. From the very start, many reviews panned the tablet for its less than stellar build quality. Years in, users have likely started to notice their tablet become fairly slow and laggy.
But thankfully, the fact that it is a Nexus device means users don’t have to deal with the stock software. Custom ROMs and kernels are always an option to breathe life into your old Nexus 9, and today the most popular custom ROM officially comes to the Google tablet. Nightly builds of LineageOS 14.1, based on Android 7.1.2, will be released for the device for those of you who want to keep your tablet running smoothly for the foreseeable future.
