Nexus users, the Wait is over. Google has finally released Android 5.0 Lollipop to the public. The original developer preview that was then known as Android L was announced back in June at Google I/O 2014. Google released the Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Nexus Player a short time back and named Android L as Android Lollipop. Google soon released, Updated Android Lollipop Preview Images for the Nexus 5 (GSM) and Nexus 7 (2013 Wi-Fi) along with the Android 5.0 Lollipop SDK. The AOSP Source Code for Android Lollipop was also released, so the Only thing missing was the Final, Official Android Lollipop update for the current Nexus Devices. It’s here. Time to Update!
Factory images of the new OS version are already available to download and flash. The Final version is supported on the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013 & 2012), Nexus 10 and the Nexus 4. If you have any of these Nexus devices, you should see the update now.
