Google releases new Android 5.1 build for the Nexus 5 and 6 – LMY47I factory images now available

Google-Developers
The Android 5.1 rollout has been fairly protracted, a number of Nexus phones still haven’t received their update, but Google has upped the ante today releasing yet another build for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6.

The new build – LMY47I is the latest build and factory images are now available on the Google Developers site, the LMY47I Over The Air (OTA) update for the Nexus 6 has so far been captured (and linked to on our OTA update page), but so far the OTA update for the Nexus 5 hasn’t been seen.

What is actually in the update isn’t certain, but a rumour that the update was specifically for Australian handsets seems to have been quashed with this new image. Google previously labelled an update for the Nexus 5 as an AU specific release (as well as for NZ and Indian customers) when they released the KTU84Q KitKat update last year.

If you have the Nexus 5 or Nexus 6 and want to flash the update, head over to the Google Developers Factory Images page and grab the update now.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I am running the 5.1(LMY47D) on my nexus 5 along with the radio image with no issues(telstra pre-paid) so i see no need to flash if it is something like a rasio update.

Gah again! So much flashing. I’m going to need a beige overcoat soon.

That said, 5.1 has revived my N5, so I’m happy with the improvements over previous LP versions!

That image has been out for a couple of days, I’ve been running it on my Nexus 6 for about three days now. It was a bitch to flash on though :/
