Updated Android L Developer Preview factory images now available for download

Android L Preview Nexus 7 (4)

If you’re rocking the Android L Developer Preview on your Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 (2013), you may want to grab that sucker and a USB cable, because there are updated factory images available for download.

Google today released fresh factory images for the Android L Developer Preview. As with the first release that came out in June, these new ones are only available to the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013). The new images are build LPV81C, up from the LPV79 images that were previously released.

As for what’s changed in these new images, well, the answer is: probably not much. The build numbers suggest that they were completed fairly close to one another. Google does note that developers should download these new images and not the ones on the main Android Developers page since the new LPV81C images “include the necessary support for Google Fit,” which got its first Preview SDK today. Outside of that, though, we’ll just have to download ‘em and start digging for changes.

How many of you are currently running Android L on your phone or tablet?

    I was running the original Android L dev preview a few days ago, but changed back to Kit Kat. Still thinking on whether to try out this new preview. Although, as mentioned in the article I’m sure there aren’t much changes, but Google Fit.

    Good to see update, so it will be baked by October 31st, a little over 2 months away, when Nexus 6 announced?

    I guess any newer tablet will be 4.4.4 or they just stall the tablets to the same Oct 31st launch. Nexus 6 and 9 available in volume for Cyber Monday

    I’ve been using android l for a while now….there’s lot of stuff that don’t work for me….i can’t download anything on my phone….plus lot of apps are not compatible (which makes sense with update to ART). UI is really good though..

      If you wanna download things on your phone you must wipe system partition and then start from scratch re-downloading everything. You cannot even restored a backup after this or same will happen. No downloads will work
