Google Android 5.0 Lollipop Source Code being pushed to AOSP!
Well what do we have here, Android Lollipop being uploaded to AOSP as we speak! As you can imagine, a code dump like this takes a great deal of time, and it could be hours before everything is completed. At the moment, the branch is being referred to as “lollipop-release” and it carries a build number of LRX21M, though its official release tag should be android-5.0_r1 when it ‘fully hits’.
Even more exciting, it’s also only a matter of time before device-specific repositories for all Nexus hardware shows up, and at least a few have already surfaced including the Nexus 7 (2013) LTE ‘deb’ and Nexus 7 (2013) Wifi ‘flo’. It is worth noting that a new repository for Android TV is also available now, though it is hard to say whether or not the full code will be uploaded.
Once everything is uploaded, it’ll only be a matter of time before developers and many others begin playing around, bringing us hidden goodies and so much more. And before you ask, no the Nexus factory images are not up yet. Patience my friends, all in good time.
