We heard rumours last week that there was a maintenance release on its way for Lollipop, and now it’s here. Google has just unleashed Android 5.0.1 on the world (or at least, selected Nexus devices) by way of factory image updates for its Nexus 9, Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 10 tablets.
The new build number appears to be LRX22C. Changes in this release are unknown, but we expect to see a changelog become available before too long and there’s certainly a raftload of fixes expected in this release (just ask my Nexus 5). Importantly, Lollipop updates for cellular Nexus 7 variants remain unaccounted for – hopefully it won’t be too long before these see the light of day.
We’ve also seen mention of a build of Android Wear based on Android 5.0.1 from Derek Ross, with a claim that OTA updates would be coming this week. Perhaps we can expect to see updates on our watches in the next few days as well?
Everyone, commence mashing that update button (even though it probably won’t do any good). We’ll add OTA links here as they become available.
