  • Well, that's weird Lollipop for Nexus5 device have already been rolled out all over, I wonder why you haven't got your hands over the Lollipop? Did you tried checking your device check for updates button under the settings ?? If you still didn't get the update then maybe you should wait a little more while for the update to show up or if you don't want to wait then can always flash the factory image downloaded and flashed over the device manually! – Peter Carlos Jan 5 '15 at 6:57
  • Yes Peter. I tried hitting check update button several times. But always a message your system is upto date. And flash is an option but just wanted to know why this is happening. Is there any way to ask Google or report for same? – kamal vaid Jan 5 '15 at 7:05
  • No @Karnal vaid, I think still OTA update haven't been rolled out over your region I would say either wait a little more while and if you don't want to then head over to the developers.google.com/android/nexus/images and get the stock factory image for Android Lollipop downloaded and flash it over to your nexus5. – Peter Carlos Jan 5 '15 at 7:41
  • Well friends in my circle already got the update and we live in same region as well. But their purchased nexus 5 almost 10 months earlier . And flashing phone will also flash my phone guarantee agreement :-) ... So was finding a way to reach Google for this. – kamal vaid Jan 5 '15 at 7:57
  • No, @Kamal Vaid flashing the device with factory image isn't going to void your warranty. And one more thing that's weird your friends have got the Android Lollipop update but you don't have ??? maybe you should try visiting over to the nearest support seeking answers or you always have the option for flash factory image over your device. One more thing do make a backup of your data if you decide to go forward in flashing factory image ! – Peter Carlos Jan 5 '15 at 9:06

You could just wait it out, as you will eventually be prompted, or you have a couple of options.

You could try and speed up the update by trying to trigger it again, try wiping google play services data (it worked on my nexus 4).

Or you could flash the system image

A better option however would be to just flash the ota file, which can be done without unlocking your bootloader.

Get the ota, and follow the instructions at this link:
