Google has released the Android 5.0.1 factory image for one of its devices, the Nexus 5 smartphone. This new update of Android 5.0 Lollipop comes with build number LRX22C, similarly to other Nexus devices.
This development follows last week’s events in which the Search giant released Android 5.0.1 factory images for the Nexus 6 and Nexus 4 devices. Earlier, Google had released factory images for the Wi-Fi only Nexus tabs (Nexus 9, Nexus 7 2013 model and Nexus 10). But the factory image for the 3G-capable Nexus 7 tab and Nexus 9LTE have not yet been published.
Android 5.0 updates have already been announced by major OEMs, including Samsung. But with the new update for Google’s Nexus devices, there is no speculating what’s coming. Word is out there that Google will fix the many bugs that have clouded the latest version of Android OS. More so, with the release of these factory images, it’s likely that Google will have an incremental update for Android 5.0 Lollipop ready in a while.
Some serious Android bugs reported by users in the recent weeks include the Wi-Fi bug, which affected device users (experienced in the Nexus devices) when Wi-Fi was turned out. There has also been an SMS bug reported, as well as an app switcher problem for a selection of Android devices running the Lollipop OS. Another bug was reported to remove the very handy silent mode from devices, and a flashlight bug also, which was common on some Nexus 4 and 5 Android phones. One would think that the list is endless, and it sure is. Two more bugs were reported, one affecting the manual account sync button, and another frequently restarting background apps.
With each other update, Google will likely get rid of all these bugs and make Android 5.0 Lollipop the great OS release everyone has been expecting it to be.
