Official Android 5.0 Factory images for Nexus devices starting to appear

Google Developers
After the factory image for the Nexus 7 (2012) Wifi leaked last night, and Google announced that Lollipop was on the way this morning, it appears that the Nexus Factory Images page is seeing some updating right now, with Android 5.0 Factory images for the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012) Wi-Fi, Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi and Nexus 10 joining the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player images as available to download.

The build version varies across devices, from LRX21L, through LRX21Q depending on which device you have. The Nexus 4 update isn’t available as yet, but we’re hoping it won’t be too far away. The Factory images can be found on the Google Nexus Factory images page, or down below :

Google has also added Binaries for all the Nexus devices, on the Drivers page, except obviously for the Nexus 9 which doesn’t require them.

Make sure you check out the Flashing Instructions on the page before you dive in, but it’s here people. Start your downloads!

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.

Installed on my Nexus 7 (2013).

Love it so far, never bothered with dev previews so this is my first Lollipop experience.

Will be flashing a GPE ROM on my M8 when they’re available

Wow. My nexus5 took 5 or more minutes to complete the boot animation the first time. Thought I bricked it for a second. Just as I was about to force it off by holding all the buttons it showed the welcome screen. *phew*

Had the same issue.
But i remembered reading that if the screen becomes brighter (which it did), its a good sign.
All is well in lollipop-land.. now to find a cheap N7

Everything up and running on my N5.

Painless – Just had to restart my phone after the flashing was complete so it could reset my play services and all my apps could be re installed.

Delicious so far

Now we play the waiting game for Xposed to work with Android 5.x

Did you gain root already?

Well, that didn’t last long.. Root access -> Custom recovery -> Custom Kernel = installed and loving double tap to wake.

Really should have been a standard feature!!

I don’t see a need for root access as there isn’t anything 3rd party worth installing. As soon as the xposed framework gets the update to work with ART, i’ll look into root access, Super SU and titanium backup.
I’m doing fine so far with 3rd party apps.
