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 two months ago, today I received the update for 5.0.1. Seems that waiting is the only thing you can do if you do not want to get into complications by downloading the factory image and take care of do not wipe your data. The update will eventually arrive, although it can take a decent amount of time.

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, ...

First: Cyanogenmod is a customized version of Android and NOT a recovery. Ok, let's move. You should root your device first. Once rooted you can install the ROM Manager App from the Play Store, which will guide you to install Custom Recovery.

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)? I have two accounts, and when the 5.0.2 update got pushed to my device, both accounts got the notification. However, one of them had the same symptoms you described -- nothing ...

Google releases their OTA updates in waves. If you have dismissed the notification (on purpose or by accident) you may not be eligible again until the next wave cycle. Many users have reported significant wait times. If you want to update manually you can do so by flashing a factory image, although be warned, this will wipe your data. You can also sideload ...

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. Battery icon shows exact percentage battery remaining making it at least feel if it last longer, still won't last the entire day if gaming on it. The volume up takes a ...

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. A2: I think they install updates in userspace, not in /system. The reason for believeing so is that after you update a system app, and you go in Settings -> ...

Sure. Just put it in the updater-script which is usually located in META-INF/com/google/android/updater-script Make sure your script mounts the data partition and executes something like this: set_perm(0, 0, 0644, "/data/resource-cache/vendor@overlay@framework@framework-res.apk@idmap"); Not sure if the @ chars are not causing trouble in recovery though. ...

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 ...

You will lose all your data anyway so right after flash your new firmware, reboot the phone.

Rollouts are done in stages, so you may not have been selected (automatically) yet. This could be for a number of reasons: -The rollout is still in progress -They have postponed the rollout due to bugs There are methods that allow you trick the rollout system (they will only work in the first case, not the second), but they aren't guaranteed to work, on my ...

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 ...

You simply flash a factory image. That overwrites the /system partition completely, effectively removing root. For where to obtain those images, please take a look at Where can I find stock or custom ROMs for my Android device?

As it turns out OTA updates can take up to several weeks. There is a solution: you can manually install OTA updates by yourself. There are tons of guides out there.

I believe the option to look for updates (if the carrier has pushed any) is usually under "About phone". I don't have that phone, but under "About phone" there should be a "System Updates" option.

Delta updates work with every file that have a valid delta file for it to update. The binary delta2exe applies that delta file on your old file and updates it to the newer one. All you need is that delta file which you can get (and is applied directly) with the app CyanDelta which works for all official releases of CyanogenMod and OmniROM. If you have the ...

In fact the app installation will proceed till ...

This error often occurs when you try to install an older version over an already-installed newer version of the same app. If that's really what you intend to do, you might first have to uninstall and then re-install the app in question. To not lose its data, you can try uninstalling via adb uninstall -k <package>: this would uninstall the app, but keep ...
