Android 5.0 Lollipop Update for Nexus Devices Released

However, at the moment, Google is giving its attention to the Nexus 4 by initiating the over-the-air updates to bring the handset up to Android version 5.0 and releasing the image files for those who refuse to wait any longer.

The Nexus 4 joins the Nexus 5, 9 and the Wi-Fi version of the Nexus 7 in getting images of the Android Lollipop. It should be noted that the over-the-air update for the 2012 Nexus 4 could take a week or two before Google hands out Lollipop to everyone. For users of the cellular version of the 2013 Nexus 7, there's still no word on when Google plans to roll out Android Lollipop on the tablet -- but it will show up for the device soon or later eventually.

Also be advised that the Android Lollipop hasn't been free of bugs. The Nexus 5 appears to have been experiencing the most problems with Lollipop right now, particularly with Wi-Fi connections.

Anyway, if you are willing to load the factory version and take the device to Lollipop without having to wait for the over-the-air update, Google has released a guide to help users with the process of flashing the latest version of Android onto their smartphones. Flashing, or installing, the factory-fresh version of Lollipop will overwrite all pre-existing data, which makes it essential for users to back up their data beforehand.
