Android 5.0.1 already landing on the NVIDIA Shield tablet


We told you last month that the NVIDIA Shield tablet would be getting Lollipop, and that time has since come and gone. Now, while most recently-released devices already have Lollipop (or are in line to get it soon), attention has been turned to see which devices are going to be first to get Google’s first bug fix release, 5.0.1. Most of the Nexus devices have received it already (and you can get those from Google’s factory image download page), but it appears NVIDIA is also making sure its Shield tablet receives a timely update.


Videos preview upcoming Android 5.0.1 update for Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Note Edge, & S5 LTE-A


Samsung focused blog SamMobile today posted the videos above and below showing off an upcoming Android 5.0.1 update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, and Galaxy S5 LTE-A.

Moto 360 5.0.1 update delayed, some devices now receiving LWX48T build


Motorola may have originally planned to roll out the Android Wear 5.0.1 update to all Moto 360 devices by the end of the day yesterday, but it looks like the company is facing some kind of delay in the rollout. Now, some users are seeing yet another build of 5.0.1 hitting their devices, and Motorola is saying everyone should be up to date by the end of the week.

The forum page that we cited in our post from yesterday originally listed the 15th as the last day of the rollout, but today, some users on Google+ and elsewhere—even those that already had the update—are now reporting that a second build, dubbed LWX48T, is rolling out. This is probably just to fix some last minute bugs, and Motorola has since said that the new rollout schedule is that Moto 360 users should receive the update “by the end of this week.”

Have you received the Android Wear Lollipop update on your Moto 360? If so, have you received the new release also?

Google posts Lollipop 5.0.1 factory image for Nexus 5, OTA rollout imminent

Google Nexus 5

We had clues earlier today that the over-the-air Lollipop 5.0.1 update for the Nexus 5 would be happening imminently, but now Google has updated the factory image page on its developers website with download links to make it easy to update your devices manually if that’s something you might be interested in doing…

Since we’ve been waiting a while and this is one of the last devices to get the 5.0.1 update, this should be sign that the update will be rolling out to all devices regardless of carrier soon. The update doesn’t pack any known big features, but is rather an incremental under-the-hood update.

Google has yet to update its factory image download page on the Developers site with the image for this release, but we wouldn’t be surprised if that showed up very soon. Downloads are available, however, for the Nexus 4, 6, 7 (certain models), 9, and 10. We’ll update this post when you can grab the latest build for the Nexus 5.

Update: T-Mobile has also updated their support documentation.

Update 2: Image now available.
