Android 5.0.1 update release for Nexus 7, 9 and 10 nears

By Peter Chubb - Dec 3, 2014

The first device to make use of Android 5.0 Lollipop was a Nexus, and so it comes as no surprise that the Nexus 7, 9 and 10 looks set to get the Android 5.0.1 update first. We know Google has been working behind the scenes on a newer version of its mobile OS and we can tell you its build number is LRX22C.

Details of this came to light on Android Open-Source Project and makes it possible for you to flash 5.0.1 Lollipop to select Nexus devices, which are the 7, 9 and 10 tablets. Don’t try and force an OTA update for this new version, as they are purely Factory Images at this moment in time.

Android 5.0.1 update for Nexus 7

As for the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop changes, there are no details on this at the moment, although seeing as though this is the first update we suspect it will come with several bug fixes, such as a battery life fix and to increase overall performance of devices running Lollipop.

We have yet to hear from anyone that was brave enough to flash Android 5.0.1 Lollipop to their Nexus tablets, so please get in touch and let us know what the differences are over the current version.

One has to wonder if the update is only for Nexus tablets, as we would have assumed the Nexus 6 would have been offered the Factory Images as well.
