its here ladies and germs. Discus.
Just got the OTA notice. Of course, it popped up literally 28 seconds after rooting and rebooting....
Google is laughing at me. Now I probably can't OTA my N6, and still no F'ing lollipop for my N7 LTE.
I got the OTA and applied it right away. I knew this was going to happen with a version X.00 so i waited to root. The factory image is up for 5.01 if you are in a flashing mood.
Yup, just flashed the new radio and system image with fastboot. Need to re-root now
Nothing here yet. I have sprint.
i have sprint as well. im in LA. the update popped up right as I made this thread...
I am on AT&T with the locked down AT&T N6 and I got Nadda. Nothing, Zilch, ZERO....Zamboni?
Sorry couldn't help it. I hate that commercial.
Am I the only one not installing this? As far as I understand this updated was mostly for the devices that 5.0 wasn't working well on and adds nothing or little to the N6? I probably won't add an update until they add something of significance. My phone works fine now and I'm sure there are people out there that have updated theirs and now have some kind of problem from it.
A nexus owner who doesn't update on the day the images are released? *faint*
No problems here ... not much a difference either. Not sure what it "fixed" for the 6 but if i had it, i don't anymore.
What exactly does 501 fix?
I don't know if this helps, but here's a sort of changelog. Minor bug fixes mostly.
So I just saw this. Wondering if this is what's holding up 5.0.1 for some of us.
- From the article ...
Here's the full list of features and bug fixes that will supposedly come with Android 5.1.
Silent mode added after missing on Android 5.0
General improvements in system stability
Improved RAM management
Fixes for sudden app closures
Improved battery management
Excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed
Issues with wireless connections fixed
Problems with Okay Google function solved
Notifications problems solved
Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed
Other improvements and changes
Changes in the Material Design color palette (after users complaints, possibly for a higher version though)
Still waiting for it on AT&T.
Don't want to side load the update as 1. I've never done it before and 2. not really comfortable doing it.
What the hell is taking to so long to get it?
AT&T Nexus4, Elk Grove, CA, just received the notice for download today (12/18)
I've been reading some user reviews of it affecting their phone in adverse ways (battery drain/indicator issues, phone call issues, data connectivity, etc) - all which are claimed to be intermittent - hopefully this isn't too bad :\
Anyone else noticing much better battery life?
Been off the charger since 7:30 AM PST. It's 2:30 right now, and I'm at 79% after moderate usage this morning.
Still (STILL) on 5.0 no update. Off charger at 6AM CT it's 4:40 now and I am at 62% (18 hours left) - I been killing it on battery life since day one, but I am comparing to a 2013 Moto X that struggled at times to make it a whole day on a charge.
Oops, I meant to post that in the Moto360 forum... Too many tabs... *blush*
But, yes, for my needs, the N6 battery life has been phenomenal thus far.
Actually I have noticed the battery life to be a little better... I havent rooted yet tho.... that shamu rom looks interesting ...
Im gonna wait for a really good touchwiz rom... lmao!!
Question, has ANYONE on AT&T gotten the OTA actual update for 5.0.1 for the Nexus 6? Is this just a carrier thing?
Sure, I got it right away.
Grrrrrrr grummble grrumble
It's only fair, you had 5 on your 360 days before me.
Don't worry, at least you have the update available if you chose to manually flash it.
I'm still waiting for firmware to even be posted for my Nexus 7 LTE. How ridiculous is it that all of the Nexii have it except for the flagship mobile versions of both Nexus 7's?
Stupid, that's what that is.
Gotta thank Big red for that I put up with this on my Galaxy Nexus on Sprint for almost a year - grr...
I'm not sure the carriers have anything to do with it. It's a Nexus; software comes directly from Google. I didn't get my tablet from a carrier besides.
The last iota of information I found on the matter suggests the hold-up is actually with Asus, the N7 manufacturer.
