Re: LOLLIPOP FOR NEXUS 5???

I see on the OS upgrade page that it says "Now available" for Lollipop (Nexus 5) but it hasn't downloaded on my phone from the OTA?!?! If it's available or out there why hasn't it come up on my phone to download? I live in Edmonton, has anyone from Edmonton received it already? I even go to the software update in settings and check for updates and it says it's up to date (with kitkat). Thoughts/ideas/suggestions? or does anyone know when it will come out via OTA?

 

Thanks,

DT

Hello dtonn

Not everyone will get it at the same time. Please be patient as the update just on Thursday & most likely they had to update alot of peoples & they do not update them all at once. Each region gets it a few hours or days later via carriers.

You can flash it with the original update via Google if you like or just wait until it pops up within the next couple of days.

I got the Lollipop update notification on my N5 two days ago (late Wednesday afternoon); thus Canadian customers should be receiving it soon.

 

If you are set the phone as French Canadian, you may want to hold off, as there are reports of crashing under that language setting (which does not occur under English or French France).

Just wondering if the upgrade has been released and my phone just won't upgrade or something, I'm still running on 4.4.

Hello Saty

Rogers has released the 5.0 Lollipop update for the Nexus 5. If u haven't received the update over OT, have tried checking manually the settings and update? If it doesn't show up there then the last restore I would suggest is restoring ur phone and seeing if the update comes then.

You can flash the ROM straight from Googles page if u want to flash it. Here it is below.

This worked for me:

 

https://thenewcircle.com/s/post/1321/force_an_ota_update_on_your_android_nexus_device

 

You should get 5.0.1 update right afterwards if seeding correctly OTA.

 

As the blog article poster cautions, use at your own risk - but updating over the air is a lot easier than sideloading the AOSP or factory images or doing recovery/fastboot.  The last poster's advice of factory resetting the phone can work as well but is a lot more work, needs a good backup obviously before proceeding and has about as much chance of getting seeded into an OTA batch to get Android 5 as any...

 

Too bad the Nexus 5 is about the only phone in the entire marketed lineup here at R.W. that gets regular OTA updates - thanks of course to Google.  Never rely on your carrier to update devices - manufacturers' lifecycles with the exception of the Google Nexus lines ensure there are never timely updates, frequent security flaws... and of course Android OS fragmentation, high turnover and guaranteed revenues...

 

Who would have thought that getting Android 5 and staying current would be such a problem for ARPUs 😉

 

Good luck!
