Update: The OTA download link is now available for the Nexus 5 as well.

Android 5.1.1 been making its way to most Nexus devices over the last few weeks, and now it’s time for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 to get a chance at the fun. The factory images still haven’t been uploaded to Google’s developers’ website, but some Nexus 4 and 5 owners are already receiving the update to 5.1.1 over-the-air and have kindly shared the download links—meaning you can get the update right now straight from Google’s servers and sideload it via ADB.

There are several other 5.1.1 OTA download links that have surfaced thus far, and just this morning we started putting together a running list of Android 5.1.1 OTA download links for Android Wear. If you’re not quite sure what to do with the .zip image, we have a guide written up—although it’s best (and easiest) for those who aren’t as experienced to wait for the OTA to actually hit their device as it will surely be dropping relatively soon (if it hasn’t already).

Here are the OTA images…

Nexus 4: from 5.1.0 (LMY470) to 5.1.1: occam-mako LMY47V from LMY470

Nexus 5: from 5.1.0 (LMY47D) to 5.1.1: hammerhead LMY48B from LMY47D
