    This step by step thread to flash the Factory Image on the Nexus 4 is a good post to follow: http://forums.androidcentral.com/nex...e-restore.html

    You'll need to make sure you have:
    1. ADB installed and setup correctly. Open Terminal Emulator to make sure the device is recognized - the post above will help you do that.
    2. Replace all the files calling for Nexus 4 factory image with the Lollipop preview.

    Remember that flashing the preview will erase the entire device, including the sd card, so backup your data beforehand.

    Let us know how it goes.

    This guide, from this forum and written by Jerry, is written for 4.3 and include the Mac and Linux specific instructions. This is the guide I followed. The only change you need to make is downloading the 5.0 factory image instead of the 4.3 factory image. Other than that, the process is identical.

    Also, if you run into any issues, let me know. I had to do one thing that wasn't in the write up. Before I ran the flash-all.sh command, I had to run "cd /Users/yourusernamehere/Android/sdk/platform-tools". What comes after "cd" for you could be different. It needs to be the file path to the folder you have fastboot and the factory image files in.
