Nexus 4′s Android 5.0 factory image now available

nexus4googlenow

Google recently confirmed that it’ll begin pushing Android 5.0 updates to its Nexus devices soon. If you’re impatient like us, though, you’re probably just using the factory images to bump your Nexus to Lollipop as soon as possible. Now the time has come to upgrade your Nexus 4.

Yes, the Nexus 4’s Android 5.0 factory image has officially been posted by Google. The image will bump your N4 to build LRX21T and, as with other factory images, will wipe your phone clean when you load it up.

The Nexus 4 isn’t exactly the freshest fish in Google’s hardware lineup, but it’s still getting an official bump up to the company’s newest version of Android. That’s awesome to see, and when you remember that the Nexus 4 has been seeing some heavy discounts lately, you could easily get yourself an Android 5.0 smartphone on the cheap.

If you load Android 5.0 onto your Nexus 4, swing by the comments to tell us how Lollipop is working for you!

    The image keeps sending me an error and has, for now, bricked my phone. I get the “too any links” response when loading the ‘system’ image. Any suggestions from the community?

    I flashed it last night. Works like a charm… Just one question, when you go into the app drawer does it show all white or is that only for the nexus 6?

    • vforvortex

      The background for the app drawer is all white for Android L 5.0 for all devices.

    I have a Nexus 5 and was very impatient to get Android L. 10 days is a long time :) So i went the flashing factory image route too. Very smooth, no problems whatsover.
