We first caught wind of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop a few days ago, as the build popped up on Google’s own Android Audio Latency website. The Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 9 were both listed as running this new version, but it looks like the first device to actually receive the update is the Nexus Player. Bringing the build number up to LMY47V, the Nexus Player’s 5.1.1 factory image is now available for download.
Google released way more bugs than it wanted to in Android 5.0, and some of those even stayed around with the update to version 5.1. We’re not exactly sure what we’re going to see in this new update, but odds are, it’s filled with mostly bug fixes and performance improvements.[related_videos title=”More on the Nexus Player” align=”center” type=”custom” videos=”563587,545586,572824″]
We’ll certainly let you know as more factory images arrive for more devices. But for now, if you own a Nexus Player, you can download the factory image by clicking the link below. If you aren’t sure how to flash a factory image, be sure to check out our walkthrough. While the guide was designed for Android 5.0 Lollipop, the same overall process should apply. Just remember that things can go wrong, so be sure to flash at your own risk.
