Lollipop not good for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7, units being bricked

Most people who have the latest Android phones are scrambling to receive Lollipop updates on their mobile devices. Unfortunately, they don't come easily and quickly on every phone in the market.

Receiving that anticipated Over-The-Air(OTA) notification can be exciting for those eager to get a taste of Lollipop.

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.

Nexus owners, if you've been a bit jealous of the Moto G and, now, the Moto X getting their Lollipop on, you no longer need to feel unloved.

But, if you're really excited to get the dessert now and don't mind starting from scratch, there is always the Factory Image path available for you to take.

Android 5.0 image for 2012 Nexus 7 leaked

The new Nexus devices are out, well except for the Nexus 6, and with them come Android Lollipop. Naturally, we expect that Google's previous Nexus devices will be the ones to get the update before anyone else. What we did not expect, however, is that the older 2012 model of the Nexus 7 would actually be the first to get it. Well, at least unofficially via this leaked flashable image that can be downloaded from Google's servers.
