Download: Android 5.0.1 OTA Updates for Nexus Devices (Updated: Nexus 5)

Update 12/15:  Added Nexus 5 link! (Cheers Dustin!)

Update 12/10:  Added Nexus 4 link. Also added Nexus 6 link.

Android 5.0.1 OTA updates are starting to pop-up this afternoon for a handful of Nexus devices, which isn’t all that surprising after seeing the new Android version hit AOSP yesterday with factory images shortly behind it. The first three devices to receive build LRX22C are the Nexus 9, Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi, and Nexus 10. But don’t be surprised if the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi, and Nexus 6 updates aren’t far behind them.

As is the case each time new OTA updates rollout for Nexus devices, we have started a running list of the updates that can be sideloaded, along with instructions for flashing them. We will continue to update this list as more device updates pop up. Also, as a reminder, we only provide the direct-from-Google download links, so these are as safe as can be.  (more…)

Download: Android 5.0 “Lollipop” OTA Update for Nexus 5, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and Nexus 4 (Updated)

The Android 5.0 “Lollipop” over-the-air (OTA) updates are starting to arrive to more and more devices, which means that we are finally starting to capture some of the .zip files that can be shared with you for manual updating on your Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013 and 2012), Nexus 4, and Nexus 10.

As a reminder, Google rolls out updates in stages, so that they can catch bugs and make sure the process isn’t destroying millions of devices. Assuming the updates go well, they begin to update additional batches of devices each day. But, if you have a .zip file directly from Google for your particular device, you can manually update in a couple of steps (without root).

Each time a new OTA update rolls out for the Nexus line, we have made it a habit of putting them all together for you in a simple list, along with instructions. With Lollipop, things haven’t changed.  (more…)
