If you are flashing a factory image then you can skip KitKat and go straight to Lollipop (Assuming it is available for your device). Factory images will completely wipe your device and install the image, so are not dependent on the previously installed OS. If you are wanting to use OTA updates then you don't have any choice what updates to install as they ...

Wait. I've had positive and reliable experiences running Android 5.0.1 on Nexus 10, Nexus 7, and Nexus 5. However, my Nexus 4 experiences reboots with Android L and a friend's Nexus 4 outright powers down regularly. That said, a bugfix Android 5.0.2 is rolling out to Nexus devices right now. So wait.

I had the same problem on my Nexus 7 (2012) on 4.4.4. Do you have multiple user accounts on your tablet? If so, have you tried installing the update from the other account(s)?

A1: I'm pretty positive that they are on the /system partition because you can't delete them, if you could, that would mean they are in /data partition or whatever it is called where the userspace is.

You can direct download the latest factory image here for your device. As far as I know, you need to note several things before force push the update: Power off your device. Enter to recovery mode (Power + Volume up and down buttons simultaneously for a few seconds). Locate the zipped file and extract it to update the version. (May take a while) Reboot A ...

Same build. I went upto the Chinese B710 that have the most features including the radio and hdmi. Google apps is not on B710 firmware and instead the Chinese version of it. I decided to roll back to B315 without radio and HDMI (not without, but with no sound). B315 is OK (the sound is now extra load, they must have activated that dolby sound at last, ...

i just installed the official firmware.(B315, Jellybean) If you don't use the radio and MHL capabilities it is worth it, as those are not on there. Makes the phone faster, improves the camera.
