Android 5.0.1 factory images are already available for some Nexus devices
Many of Google’s Nexus devices have only just gotten their Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrades, and already the search giant is making Android 5.0.1 factory images available to download. The updates should soon be rolled out over-the-air to more recent Nexus devices, but those who know how to can flash them manually right away.
Android 5.0.1 comes with build number “LRX22C,” Android Police reports, and its main purpose is to fix many of the teething troubles users have been suffering following the release of Android 5.0. However, we won’t know the full extent of Google’s changes until it releases change logs alongside the OTA updates.
Right now, factory images are available for the Nexus 9, the 2013 Nexus 7, and the Nexus 10 (Wi-Fi only models), and they can be obtained from Google’s download page via the source link below. If you need instructions on how to flash them, you can follow our guide to installing Lollipop on the Nexus 4, which uses the same process.
Android 5.0.1 is also expected to come to Android Wear devices, where its biggest impact will be significantly improved battery life.
