Mere hours after confirmation of Nexus 6 Android 5.0.1 Lollipop OTA update release, Nexus 4 has also received the latest firmware upgrade. Nexus 4 Android 5.0.1 Lollipop OTA update is now available worldwide via OTA (Over-The-Air). Although the update will be released in phases, we expect that all the Nexus 4 devices will receive the update by the end of December 2014.
The Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update is a minor update and doesn’t bring any new features. Since no official changelog has been provided with the update, we can’t tell you for sure what the new update brings. Although, we can say that the update is aimed to provide performance and stability fixes to the previous Android 5.0 Lollipop update. The new firmware update will bump the existing firmware version from LRX21T to LRX22C.
Since the update will be released in gradual steps, users worldwide will have to wait for a while before the update arrive on their device. Once their device is ready to receive the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update, they will receive a update notification. To update Nexus 4, just tap on the notification and follow the onscreen instructions to download and install the update. You can also check for the update availability manually, just go to Settings> About Phone> System Updates and check if your device is eligible to receive the update now. If not, try again after few days.
In case you don’t want to wait for the update to arrive automatically on your device, you can install the update manually using ADB sideload command. Although, this is a bit complex process and we advise only advance users to try this method as it can be dangerous. To use this method, download the Nexus 4 Android 5.0.1 Lollipop factory image and use ADB sideload method to install the update on your Nexus 4.
Since there is no official changelog, can any of our reader who has received Nexus 4 Android 5.0.1 Lollipop OTA update write a small review in the comment section?
