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

Posted by wicked April - 13 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

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. Carriers and phone manufacturers still have to test the platform released by Google before finally bringing them to device owners. Receiving that anticipated Over-The-Air(OTA) notification can be exciting for those eager to get a taste of Lollipop.

But in the case of Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 owners, not everyone is happy with the result. Why, some Nexus 7 and Nexus 5 units are reportedly being locked up or bricked without any reason. We don’t know exactly how many units have been affected but there are several complaints in Google Product Forums. No mention exactly which particular Android update is this but we’re assuming it’s Lollipop since OS updates were recently released for the two models.

One report involves a Nexus 7 turning off while in use. After that, it was stuck at the boot screen and made the tablet useless. We’re guessing this is just a bug and some tweaking on the code will fix it. However, this seems like a major bug because a newly updated device should be working well and would not just shut down especially after undergoing several tests. Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 being bricked seems to be common these days with #nexus7bricked now trending on Twitter.

Both Google and ASUS have not responded to the issue yet but we’re expecting a statement as explanation and a new software update.

DAT DEAL: Brand New Nexus 7 (2013) for $149 From Groupon

Posted by Kellex March - 13 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

I still don’t get how Groupon has this many brand new Nexus 7 (2013) tablets lying around their warehouses, but they do, even after all these months. We are talking about a tablet of Google’s that is almost two years old and hasn’t been sold by Google in I don’t even know how long. We wrote up a similar deal from Groupon two months ago, yet here we are in mid-March, telling you about the same discounted tablet of Google’s. But hey, the tablet is still solid for an Android tablet! Why not buy one?

The deal is this – a brand new 16GB Nexus 7 (2013) for just $149. This tablet originally sold for $229, so that’s a decent $80 discount. It’s already running Lollipop, has a solid high-res display, and is compact enough that you may even be able to toss one in your JNCOs at Marilyn Manson shows.

Still need an Android tablet, but don’t want to dent the bank account? Here you go.

Android 5.1 is now rolling to several Nexus devices and it can take up to a couple of weeks for all devices to receive the update. We know that most of our readers are just too damn impatient to sit and wait that long, so here are the direct links (from Google) for the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 7 (2012) Wi-Fi.

You can download these Zip files and easily flash them. If you need a refresher or you’re new to it, just hit up our very extensive guide on how to manually flash OTA updates.

Downloads links after the break.

(Note: The Nexus 5 has two downloads for those that are current on LRX21O Android 5.0 or LRX22X Android 5.0.1)

Download: Android 5.1 OTA Updates for Nexus Devices (Updated)

Posted by Kellex March - 11 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

Now that Android 5.1 has begun rolling out, we are starting to capture over-the-air (OTA) .zip files for you to sideload should you not feel like waiting for the update to hit your device. The first to arrive is for the Nexus 5, but we wouldn’t be surprised if either Nexus 7 or the Nexus 10 or the Nexus 6 weren’t far behind.

As we continue to receive new file URLs that are direct downloads from Google, we will continue to update this post. 

Download Android 5.1 OTA .zips:

  • Nexus 4
  • Nexus 5 – [LMY47D from LRX21O, 221MB] – Download Link (Cheers Anthony!)
  • Nexus 5 – [LMY47D from LRX22C, 221MB] – Download Link (Cheers Nathan!)
  • Nexus 6 – [LMY47D from LRX22C, 410MB] – Download Link (via)
  • Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi - [LMY47D from LRX22G, 102MB] – Download Link
  • Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi
  • Nexus 9
  • Nexus 10 – [LMY47D from LRX22G, 104MB] – Download Link

*Note – In order to flash a .zip file in adb, be sure to match up the build number on the file to your current or the update will fail. For example, the first Nexus 5 link we have will only work for those running Android 5.0 “LRX21O.” Many of you may already be running LRX22C and will need to wait for the next file.

For those wondering why this is a big deal, just understand that neither has been updated to Lollipop yet. As in, they have still been running Kit Kat all this time.
