Those Nexus fans who have been constantly refreshing the Nexus Factory Images page since Google began pushing the Lollipop source code to AOSP yesterday, would have just seen movement on the page. Google has just posted the factory image for the Nexus 9.

The image is for Android 5.0, Build LRX21L and weighs in at 805MB in size, so it’s by no means a lightweight image. The link to the full download you can find on the Factory Images page or down below.

Factory Images “volantis” for Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi)



MD5 Checksum

SHA-1 Checksum

5.0 (LRX21L)




The accompanying binary files for the Nexus 9 haven’t shown up on the Binaries page as yet, but should follow quite soon. If you have a Nexus 9 (well, we soon will) then you can now flash it back to the factory image if required.
