Google has just posted the Android 5.1 factory image for the Nexus 4 (LMY47O), WiFi only 2013 Nexus 7, and cellular 2013 Nexus 7. The files are available from Google’s Android Developers website now. Google last month officially announced Android 5.1 and released factory images for the Nexus 5, Nexus 10, and 2012 WiFi Nexus 7. Earlier this week we saw OTA download links for the Nexus 4’s Android 5.1 update, as well. 

For those unfamiliar, factory images allow users to quickly return or upgrade to stock Android 5.1 without waiting on an over-the-air update to hit their device. If you’re unfamiliar with how to flash factory images, you can check out our full guide here. If you missed the breakdown of what Google changed in Android 5.1, you can read our feature list here.

You can download the Android 5.1 factory image for the Nexus 4 and both 2013 Nexus 7 variants now from Google.
