    Hello. My new nexus only came with 5.0 installed. If I unlock my boot loader to use the fast boot recover option to update do I have to install 5.01 and then 5.1. I can only find images from 5.01 to 5.1.

    Also after I have done this will I no longer receive over the air updates if I stay unlocked? If I re lock the device will I receive otas then?

    Actually after reading a bit more just to side load an update I don't need to unlock do I? I can just side load the 5.01 update and then 5.1 is this correct?

    I always unlock my phones but from what I understand Yes. You can just download the update and upgrade no unlocking needed.

    I also believe that even if you are unlocked but leave everything stock you will still receive OTAs . As long as you don't change a thing you get it.

    Thanks. I can see the update on android central for 5.01 to 5.1. I need to use an update of 5.0 to 5.01 first don't I?

    Look at your current version (build)

    Lrx210. So I guess I need LRX22C from LRX21O. Cool. I'll give it a go

    Thanks for the help. Side loaded 5.1 and all is well. Took me a while to get adb working on windows 7 but that's another story.

    I just added Windows 7 in Parallels on my MBP just so I can root, unlock and do the things you need to do that a MAC cannot do with Android. Sad, but I do like my MBP more than my prior HP laptop. Its in good hands, I donated it to a charity my wife works with. It was a monster rig, but just didn't like windows 8.
