The release of Factory Images for Nexus devices yesterday, was missing some devices from the rollout, most notably the Nexus 4 handset. Google announced the Nexus 4 would receive the Lollipop update after they announced Android 5.0, but there was a notable silence yesterday about the update. Today there’s news for Nexus 4 owners, with Senior Program Manager for Android, Sascha Prüter posting to Google+ that the Nexus 4 update was Locked and loaded with build LRX21T.

The full update on Google+ was actually quite brief with Mr Prüter saying :

Locked and loaded! #LRX21T

While the initial comment didn’t say anything about which device he was talking about, he quickly followed up in comments to say that he forgot the #Nexus4 hash tag. When questioned on when the update would arrive, he followed up with :

Soon, not sure when exactly but shouldn’t be too long. Staging the factory images always takes some time.

For Nexus 4 users and owners out there, we do hope that’s sooner rather than later.

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.
