Android 5.1 is making its way to more and more Nexus devices by way of factory images, with the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 7 (2013) LTE now supported. Now, it doesn’t matter what you’ve done to your device’s firmware, you can restore back to a stock Lollipop image and get the best of what Google intended.

The factory images are all version LMY470 and are available today. Be mindful that, by default, these factory images will wipe your data on install and if you’re coming from anything other than a very-bloody-close-to-stock ROM, that’s probably a good thing. However, if you’re confident you don’t need to wipe, you can omit the wipe command from the update files easily enough.

You can grab the updates today from the Nexus factory images website.

I got my OTA this morning for my 2013 N7 LTE.

I’m much happier with the speed that I got this update compared with the months I had to wait for 5.0!

I just sideloaded the 5.1 OTA update for the Nexus 7 (2013) (LRX22G to LMY47O) from here.
All is well.

Initial impressions on my 2013 N7 – frame rates seem to have taken a minor hit throughout the UI but overall responsiveness is much better. It’s faster overall.

I hope this fixes the touch sensitivity issue I have been experiencing on my n7 2013. Is it bad to a that I have not given root access to my device? Being a nexus and all..
