android 5 lollipop (2)

Earlier this week Android 5.1 finally became official, and the first factory images hit the web as well. The OTA is beginning to rollout too, but, as always, it could take at least a few days or more for the update to reach your device. For those that don’t want to flash a factory image and start over from scratch, but also don’t want to wait for the OTA — there’s only one thing to do: wait for the OTA links to hit the web.

Here are the OTA file links available for far. We’ll be sure to update this page as more OTA updates are made available:

Nexus 5

Nexus 6

Nexus 7 2012 WiFi

Nexus 10

New to the idea of manually flashing? We have a guide that should be able to help you along with the journey, though keep in mind that things can go wrong, so flash at your own risk. Need more direct help? We recommend asking around at the AA forums. 

For those that have already snagged the Android 5.1 Lollipop, what do you think of the new update so far? Noticing a real difference in performance, or not so much?
