Nexus 4 owners rejoice! Android 5.0 Lollipop is now available for your device

Woohoo, Android 5.0 Lollipop is out. I bet you’re all excited about Material Design and the new lock screen and hey new operating systems are fun to poke around in and find little nuggets of fun. In fact, half the reason you bought a Nexus device was because you wanted quick access to Android updates. Well for Nexus 4 owners your long wait (two days) is over.

If you’re too impatient to wait for an OTA (over-the-air) update and you’re a little brave, you can download the Lollipop factory image for the Nexus 4 right now from the Android Developer site.

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

The site is already populated with images for other Nexus devices including the Nexus 5, 9, 7, 10 and the new Nexus Player. Plus, the site has instructions on how to flash your device so you’re not fumbling around on your own trying to get Lollipop on your phone.
