Of our many jobs here at Android Police, one is to make our readers’ lives easier when we can. With that in mind, here’s a roundup of every known Android 5.1 OTA for every Nexus device that will be receiving it. As new ones become available, this post will be updated accordingly. Android 5.1 will be released to Nexus 4, 5, 6, 7 (2012 and 2013), 9, and 10. As I’m sure you’ve guessed, there will be plenty of files to be had.


As the OTA rollout has just begun, we don’t have all the links for manual flashing just yet. I’ll keep this post updated as they come in. If you’re not familiar with the manual installation process, proceed to this guide for an earlier update.
