Google’s Nexus phones and tablets are currently playing catchup, with Google finally releasing Android 5.1.1 factory images for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 9 LTE – as a bonus, there’s also OTA’s pushing to the devices themselves, as well as a bonus Nexus 4 OTA indicating a factory image for that phone is imminent.

The factory images are now available on the Nexus Factory Images page, which updates the Nexus 5 to build LMY48B, while the Nexus 9 LTE gets a bump to LMY47X matching it’s non-cellular counterpart.

The OTA links are now pushing out to devices which you can now grab from the official Google source and flash to your phones and tablets.

  • Nexus 4 5.1.1 OTA:
  • Nexus 5 5.1.1 OTA:
  • Nexus 9 LTE:
  • If you need some refreshers on how to side-load an OTA update, you can check out our How-To guide.

    Well 24 hours later and I am very happy with this update. No black screen on the N4 and the N5 has had no issue with networking dropping off, the day before it happened twice.
    Looks like a step in the right direction and 5.1.1 is where Android came good again.

    Sadly updates in Android just make things worse

    Thanks for that. Side-loading the update worked perfectly for me, taking my Nexus 5 from LMY47D to LMY48B. Not sure about your description of the 2nd Nexus 5 update. Going from LMY47I to LMY47B would seem like a downgrade. The name of the linked file indicates that it actually takes a LMY47I device to LMY48B, the latest 5.1.1 factory image that I’m now on. Hopefully Google have merged the Nexus 5 build so that it doesn’t need a separate version for Telstra and a few other telcos, (KTU84Q instead of KTU84P for 4.4.4 and LMY47I instead of LMY47D for 5.1.0).… Read more »
