Nexus 4 - Impressionist Artists

Android 5.1 has been slowly but surely making its way to the slew of Nexus devices that still get updates, and the Nexus 4 was one—until just now—that still hadn’t gotten the latest version of Lollipop. The factory image still hasn’t been uploaded to Google’s developers’ website (we’ll update this post when that’s available), but some Nexus 4 owners are already receiving the update over-the-air and have kindly shared the download link—meaning you can get the update right now straight from Google’s servers.

There are several other 5.1 OTA download links that have surfaced thus far, and if you’re interested in those, be sure to head over to our running list. If you’re not quite sure what to do with that .zip OTA update image, we have a convenient guide written up just for you—although it’s best for those who aren’t as experienced to just wait for the OTA to actually hit their device as it will surely be dropping relatively soon (if it hasn’t already).

Here’s the OTA image for the Nexus 4:
