Starting with the love of the great Google’s Nexus line, in just two weeks time after the announcement and release of the Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, and the still standing strong Nexus 5 Android Lollipop 5.0 has been released officially by Google.inc! Moving past Android KitKat 4.4 and the most recent developer preview aka (Android L) now we have version 5.0 stock Android Lollipop ! Giving Nexus owners like myself a firsthand look, all new feel, and real life experience/performance of Android lollipop 5.0! The developer preview was a great look at what to come but now officially the all new Material Design elements plus new OS is now downloadable straight from Google! I have provided detailed information on which devices that have this update (now), will get this update (soon), and (not on Google’s road map) for this update. If your device is on this list then (happy flashing) to the tech savvy because I will be doing the same on my Nexus 7 (2012) soon! All of the Factory Images can be found here Nexus Factory Images straight from Google developers website so cheers all!
