    I know right... I'd say we're just fashionably late to the party! :cool:
    I (we) knew all the new Nexus device's were gonna get the update first as they have and are more of a priority and take precedence right now, over the older Nexus line and even other devices that recieved and took the OTA's and etc... But yeah we finally made it to the Party!! :D
    I haven't looked through the update, but I hear that it's more of a bug squash update than anything else. It would be nice if it does include some fine tuning though.

    I haven't personally had any real issues or complaints with 5.0 (modified? yes) but still based off of factory images.
    Mostly it's just been incompatible apps that I've had issues with and pairing a Bluetooth smart phone watch. I was able to resolve that issue, funny enough.. by switching to a diffent Bluetooth pairing app. :rolleyes:
    Either way, always glad to have an update... There's always room for improvement!

    I'm not quite sure if it was old vs new because the Nexus 4 received it before we did. Though to be fair, the Mobile Data Nexus 7 tablets still haven't received the first Lollipop update let alone this new one.

    Basically yes. You download the factory image from the link above and rhen follow jhawkkw excellent guide on flashing factory images here - http://androidforums.com/threads/gu...us-factory-image-manually.706533/#post5702530
    Read through it then scroll down to the nexus 5 and just follow the same directions that are posted for the LRX210 build but use the LRX22C instead.

    If your on stock completely unmodified 5.0 LRX210 then you can download the OTA and install it.

    Yeah that's true... Guess you really just don't know when for sure.
    Look at almost every update, there's always Major buzz and chatter, anticipation and excitement!
    When am I gonna get it? Am I gonna get it? Lol!! :D
    Really I just figured it that way because I heard that the N6 had the majority of the bugs, so it would seem that it would get pushed to the newer devices first.

    The factory image requires unlocking the bootloader which will wipe the device. The ota can be installed without doing that via the adb sideload option in the stock recovery. However the ota I linked to will only work if your on 5.0[emoji20] .

    This means you have 3 options:
    1) unlock the bootloader and live with the wipe.
    2) locate the 5.0 update zip, adb sideload that, and then adb sideload the 5.0.1 ota
    3) wait until a 4.4.4 to 5.0.1 ota is found or you receive it yourself.

    You can also use WUG's toolkit to automate the process. Fairly easy to use, but still requires a bit of techie talent.

    That's why i got the N5. A while back i completely wiped my LG G2, and although i had help on this website, i didn't have the expertise to bring it back to life. That's not going to happen again.:p

    Just got my update a few minutes ago. I'm hoping it'll address some of the poor battery performance issues I've been having.

    Anyone know if you can sideload or flash this with a custom kernel? Last time there were some incremental updates that didn't mess with the kernel so it was ok. If that's not the case, do I need to reflash the boot.img and stock recovery first before I sideload?

    After Lollipop, you can no longer apply any OTA file directly if you have any changes to the system partition. You will need to get back to stock first. (or you can just flash the system image (without userdata) from the new system image files directly.

    I couldn't get the adb sideload to work with the ota for weird reasons. I could get the device to be picked up, but it would give an error trying to install that didn't have an error code so I couldn't research what it was. I ended up flashing the radio and system.img from the factory image, booted into twrp to wipe cache and dalvik, rebooted the device, and then re-rooted and it went smooth. I have a custom kernel, so I chose not to update the boot partition to see how it would run. Doens't seem to be any issues thus far.

    I suspect it was the non-stock kernel that prevented the OTA install (post Lollipop, the OTA file expects an untouched system partition)
    Did you flash the new radio too?

    Has anyone reported in that's actually got this via a OTA yet? I'm thinking about sideloading it now to see if it solves my random reboot issue.

    So flashing everything but userdata.img would revert back to stock kernel, system, recovery, and no root, but I keep my apps and data, correct?

    Kernel isn't on the system partition, it's on the boot partition. But in either case, I was rooted with busybox installed so I didn't really expect it to succeed but wanted to try it anyway to see what would happen. I would have thought there would be an error code though thrown by the recovery or adb to really make me look like a noob. :p :(

    I got the OTA but being rooted it failed, guess I'll have to flash the factory image(s).

    Got and installed the OTA. Will see if it solves reboot or camera bug.
