Android 5.0.1 Factory Images Now Available for Nexus Tablets

Google I:O 2014 Android Figure

Google started pushing out its first update for Android 5.0.1 Lollipop today to Android Open Source Project (AOSP), though an official over-the-air upgrade isn’t expected just yet. The company’s also released factory images, giving some users the option to update their devices manually.

For now, the update is limited to the Nexus 9, the Wi-Fi Nexus 7 (2013) and the Nexus 10. Android 5.0.1 should mostly focus on fixing issues with the original Lollipop release, though early reports suggest it could also improve battery life for Android Wear devices.

If you’re interested in grabbing the update just hit the source link below and download the relevant factory images for your device. Then flash them manually and you should be good to go, though for the moment there doesn’t seem to be any real reason to rush the process.
