    In either case, we expect November 3rd to be the opening of the floodgates for the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Nexus 5. But considering the batching process, it could easily be mid-November before you finally see it on your phone (if you're one of the unlucky ones). But never fear, as soon as the OTA starts rolling or the factory image becomes available, the internet will melt down – so there's no chance of missing out on knowing all about it when it does start to happen.

    I believe the update on Nov 3 will be only for the Nexus 7 (WiFi model). The update for the Nexus 5 will be 'later' in the month.

    i'll wait patiently, it can't be any later than nov 10th ..15th at worse..


    I just pray that there's a *native* way to change the all white keyboard & settings menu to dark like kitkat's,

    & I pray in the official release there' the subtle shadowing on the top & bottom, w/o the shadowing, the new softkeys look, like a patched on afterthought, & not a blend in..

    How much space is needed on the N5 to download and install it?

    It is not out yet, so nobody here knows.

    Another good read on L. I'm not sure I want to tell my wife about the new "Do Not Disturb" setting in the OS instead of using a App. She gets a little up set when my phone next to our bed wakes us up to let me know someone attacked my village in Clash of Clans.

    Now that the Nexus 9 is available, you would think that Lollipop updates are not far behind. We still have some time before the Nexus 6 is released, so that could be another benchmark to use for the release of the update to current devices.

    I'm thinking of putting together a quick post outlining what needs to be done for people using rooted devices. I think that will help get people in a position to receive the OTA or be able to flash the update images manually.

    Designing the perfect Lollipop.

    Posted: Monday, November 3, 2014
    If you’re like me, you jump between a number of different devices throughout the day—reading a magazine on your tablet, checking the time on your watch, chatting with your friend on the phone, even plotting your route in the car. More and more, our screens work together, each helping make your life a little bit easier. But if design is the way they communicate with us, it often feels like each one is speaking a different language. That’s why we unveiled material design earlier this year: one consistent design language flexible enough to span devices across mobile, desktop, and beyond. Design is a major focus for Lollipop—the latest version of Android—which begins to roll out today.

    Technically they're right...AOSP is being updated as we speak. lol Factory images for devices is another story - hopefully very soon.

    I ran the new dev preview for a few weeks and can confirm that you can change to either light or dark on the keyboard.

    I'd make a solid wager that we won't see Lollipop on our Nexus 5's until the Nexus 6 is released commercially and in consumers hands.

    Some people are forgetting Google is still a business and they want to push as many N6's as possible, especially now that all the carriers are involved. If consumers have the option to buy the cheaper N5 with Lollipop ahead of the N6 it will cut into the market.

    If I am wrong and you remember this, PM and I'll do something crazy like saying sorry and admitting my personal opinion was wrong on the internet.

    Google is by far a services business not a hardware business.

    if I had to guess I'd say the N5 Lollipop roll out would be on or around the Nexus 6 release....

    The Nexus 5 is being advertised on the Play Store with Lollipop, so I don't think Google is worried about people purchasing the N5 over the N6 because of Lollipop. I hope to see it very soon.

    You're right, but which business they are bigger into isn't part of my argument / opinion.

    Hmm, I saw it over the weekend on the Play Store shown with Lollipop. Must have been immediately pulled.

    We now have the TV image released. I know that's not indication as to when the N5 image will be released, but the anticipation is growing. Lol

    Edit: This is where I saw the Nexus 5 with Lollipop: http://www.google.com/nexus/5/
    You can access that page through the Play Store by selecting the "Learn More" option. It's not the same as being advertised for sale with Lollipop as I initially thought.

    You would be making Internet history!

    On to something else, will devices running the Android L developer preview need to be manually flashed to the factory image? Or will they update OTA? I have a Nexus 7 with the preview, and I'm assuming I'll need to manually flash the official Lollipop ROM when it releases, but I don't know for sure.
