Nexus 6 Android 5.0.1 Factory Image Available as Build LRX22C (Update: Nexus 5)

Update 12/15:  Nexus 5 factory image of Android 5.0.1 has now been added.

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…)

Camera FV-5 Updated With Support for Android 5.0 Camera API

Even though Google announced that a new camera PI in Android 5.0 “Lollipop” would be able to handle things like RAW image capturing and more manual controls over things like shutter speed and focus, we have yet to really see any of the camera apps on Google Play take advantage of them.
