Android 5.0.2 images arrive for 2013 Nexus 7 (WiFi), Nexus 10

Following last month's factory image release, Google is now bringing Android 5.0.2 to the rest of its older Nexus tablets. The maintenance update, which first appeared for the 2012 Nexus 7, is now available for the 2013 model, only for its WiFi variant, and the Nexus 10.

Xiaomi's MIUI won't be the only game in town soon, especially on the Nexus 5. The Chinese-made custom ROM has had many fans, but it seems like Meizu wants a piece of that pie as well.

Motorola lists Nexus 6 again, will start shipping on January 6

Google once warned us of possible problems with the Nexus update. The phone was launched last November but potential buyers are having a hard time getting one. That's despite the announcement before that it would expand to 12 more countries and that Google would be replenishing stocks every Wednesday. Even mobile carriers were not able to keep their promises. It was listed for pre-order but soon went out of stock.

Double Tap to Wake feature brought back to unrooted Nexus 6

A few weeks back, we talked about an app that brought back the “double tap to wake” feature to the Google Nexus 6 phone, a feature that was planned to be active on the phone but was nixed by Motorola and Google at the last minute. Said app only worked on rooted Nexus 6 phones, so it still presented quite a challenge for those who don’t like/want to root their phones. Enter XDA member “_qwerp” who now presents an alternate solution for bringing back the feature to non-rooted Nexus 6 units.

Android 5.0.1 lands on Nexus 5, T-Mobile pushes to Nexus 6 too

The circle seems to be complete and Google has finally uploaded the rather mysterious Android 5.0.1 to the Nexus 5 as well. This practically finishes the release of this rather unexpected Lollipop update, which first began with the Nexus tablets and then the Nexus smartphones, sans the Nexus 5, at least until now. In the meantime, T-Mobile has also received the update and has started pushing it to both the Nexus 5 as well as the more current Nexus 6.
