Nexus 5 Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update: so where is it?

Kris Carlon

If you'd been following our Android 5.0 Lollipop update coverage, you'd know that there were some significant delays in the rollout of the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Nexus 5. This is now all a thing of the past, as the Nexus 5 has now received the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update, and you can find out what it's all about below. Update: Even though the Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 10 got the Android 5.0.2 update last week, there's still no sign of it for the Nexus 5. So what gives?

Update: With the original Nexus 7 (2012), the Wi-Fi version of the Nexus 7 (2013) and the Nexus 10 all having made the jump to Android 5.0.2, it seems obvious at this point that the 5.0.1 update was a tablet-oriented patch - after all, the three tablets all had the same build number of LRX22G.

The Nexus 5, Nexus 4, and Nexus 6 are all still on the waiting list, giving us reason to consider the upcoming Android 5.0.3 update might be the next major Nexus-wide update and the Android 5.0.2 update is not destined to arrive on any Nexus smartphone.

Having said this, there are still rumors of some bugs being ironed out and that the Android 5.0.2 update is still on the cards for the Nexus 6, Nexus 5 and Nexus 4, but with the tablet-based problems ironed out already, it is certainly possible that Google has decided to shut the gate on leave 5.0.2 and focus instead on the next incremental update for all devices.

If you haven't yet made the jump to Android 5.0.1, check Settings > About Phone > Software Update to see if your device is ready for the update. If it's not, there's nothing stopping you from installing the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop factory image yourself. Skip the wait and go to the Google Developers factory image page right now and get flashing. 

Root the Nexus 5 on Android Lollipop

If you've got the update but want some additional freedom to shift things around and customize as you see fit, then the next step you need is to root the Nexus 5 on Android Lollipop. There's a couple of methods available already.

Android 5.0 Lollipop problems

If you've made the plunge and found yourself having a few issues, then don't despair: you're not alone and we've got your back. In this article we run through the major Android 5.0 Lollipop problems and their solutions. This will be updated as more bugs come to light, so stay tuned for more solutions to Android Lollipop problems.

How to downgrade a Nexus

The Android 5.0 or Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update is not for everyone. A few people have already asked me how to downgrade their Nexus 5 back to an older version of Android like Android 4.4.4. So I put together a quick tutorial to walk you through how to downgrade a Nexus.

Is Lollipop all that? The biggest Lollipop fails

Not everyone is sold on the Lollipop update. In these two articles, we discuss the biggest Lollipop fails in the latest update and ask the question of our readers: is Lollipop really all that? If you're running the latest version of Android on your device, let us know what you think the biggest issues are and where you think Google made some bad decisions. While we love all things Android, it's always fun to poke Google with a stick!

The recent history of the Nexus 5 Android update...

While both the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 come out of the box running Android 5.0, the rest of the Nexus range had to wait a little bit longer. The Nexus 9 got the final build version of Android 5.0 just before it hit the Play Store: what Google called the ''retail version'' of the new Android firmware. And earlier in that same week, as various Nexus devices saw the Android 5.0 source code uploaded to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), we all got tittery with excitement and awaited imminent OTA rollouts or factory image deployment. But nothing happened. So what went wrong?

It seems that the Nexus 5 Android 5.0 Lollipop update was suspended thanks to a catastrophic battery drain problem caused by the upgraded firmware. Nexus 5 owners using the Android L preview build reported the problem on Google's issue tracker service, where a Google employee promptly responded stating that the issue was being worked on. The complication was reportedly provoked by a Wi-Fi bug which would continue to wake the device without cause. Since then the issue has been fixed, but we still didn't see the Nexus 5 Lollipop update arrive until November 12th, as with the rest of the Nexus range.

Traditionally, the more significant Android updates have had a two-week window or so in between the AOSP code being uploaded and the factory images appearing. Smaller updates tend to see the AOSP code and images go live around the same time. The over the air updates, however, may start before the factory images appear, but because they take weeks to complete, the factory images usually appear before everyone has the OTA anyway. The same was true of the Android 5.0 update for the Nexus range (although both the Moto X (2014) and Moto G (2014) as well as LG G3 variants got Android 5.0 before the Nexus factory images were available).

The two update methods deliver the same result, although the OTA won't wipe your device clean like flashing the binaries will. The OTA will simply appear for you one day (or you can feverishly go to Settings > About Phone > System Updates > Check Now like a madman). The second method simply requires you to download and flash the factory image from the Google Developer's site.

What date are you expecting Android 5.0 for the Nexus 5? Will Motorola beat Nexus this time?

    To be honest you're better off waiting. At the moment we're on 5.0 release6, with various fixes to resolve the Nexus 5 battery drain issue. The developer preview was fine yet there seem to be a few issues with the release version. Plus there are still quite a few apps that haven't been updated to work with lollipop.

  • Ashfaq Bhojani 2 months ago Link

    I m on kit mat 4.4.4 as of now. I use a nexus 5 that is a very recent purchase. Over the last few days there have been numerous updates to the apps on the device particularly Google Apps ( Google +, Maps, etc etc ) I am finding a considerable drain the battery then before these updates. I am assuming that this has to do with the apps that are updated. Particularly after the battery reaches the low battery levels... 14% and lower! it drains out within a few minutes. Let's hope Lollipop fixes this issue.

    Seriously regretted upgrading my N5 to Lollipop. I don't mind change, but not change for change's sake. The biggest issue I have is with the already widely commented upon Silent mode being moved and the Power Button menu being deleted.

    I want to be able to put my phone onto silent mode as and when I want to, not to have to set up different profiles for when I am at work, when I am on holiday or asleep. I also want to be able to put it into pure silent mode but still have the alarm option turned on.

    They have made this far to complex so I have decided to revert back to KitKat until Google put this one tiny option back.

    I am also very displeased with the new update. What would possess an intelligent company to eliminate a very small, yet highly important feature such as the silent mode through volume control?? You took something easy and efficient and then overcomplicated it. In my opinion, that was one of my most used and important features on my phone. This change is unbelievable and ridiculous to say the least.

  • Amol Kadam 2 months ago Link

    Nexus 5:
    In the 'time' settings, I have set 2 alarms. Both alarms have a 'drop-down' arrow on the right corner.
    The bottom of the screen has a reddish 'Add' button and besides it, on the right, there are 3 dots which indicate 'settings and help'
    Now, in the 2nd alarm, when I use the 'drop-down arrow' for more settings, it expands and the 'drop-down arrow' sits on top of the 3 dots (indicating settings & help).
    When i have to minimize the tab, I click on it, but it opens the 'setting & help' pop-up.
    You have to slide it up and then click the arrow to minimize it.
    It gets even confusing when you have 2 or more alarms set
    The alarm 'on-off' button is on the right side. So all the more confusion.
    -Also, the 'switch' turns Red when the alarm is turned on. Usually its green. And if not green the any other color but Red. Because Red indicates 'off' or 'close'

    The white layer behind many features. Too bright and bad for my eyes - may have to add a filter app to be able to use the phone. Do not want to change brightness settings as have these set to automatic. Maybe there is a way to customise the colour of the layer but I haven't found it yet...
    And there seem to be more clicks to do simple tasks like answer an SMS now...
    I am sure there are many new features that are great but to me the visual interface is very important especially for old tired eyes.

    I hope you can help with these possible bugs in Android 5.0 (Lollipop)
    My nexus 5 is connected to my pc(win 7 ...64bit), via a charging/desktop dock(My Mobile MKS - UC Nexus 5).
    This will charge the phone overnight or whenever plugged in. When on the phone is recognised as a hard-drive and can be accessed as such.
    This morning, as usual, switched on pc, loaded normally except for one error message 'MTP USB device failed to load device drivers contact your device's manufacturer'(phone is off).
    Tried the same with phone connected via lead as supplied with phone...same error message.
    Reset pc and tried again with phone on….no problems whether in dock or not!
    This may suggest a bug in Android 5.0 or a compatibility issue with Win 7.
    Any help appreciated.

    Today Friday have reset phone, still has the same problem!

    I now have additional information relating to these problems.
    To make sure it wasn’t the phone that was faulty or a bugged OTA to Android 5.0, I did both hard and soft resets and cleared all the data of the phone to no avail. Yesterday I received a new Nexus 5 and completed the OTA to Android 5.0.

    This Phone also suffers from the same problems suggesting to me that it is either and Android or MS driver problem. I called Google Play support this morning and they confirmed they knew about this problem and that it was a MS compatibility issue.
    I called MS for tech support to be told that they could only offer support if I paid for it! I asked the lady if I could pass on what I thought was a glitch between Android 5.0 and Windows 7, She told me that they knew all about it! Even though I had not said what it was.
    The lady was not interested at all in this issue and made it quite clear that there would be no updates for windows 7 users( I did point out that it involved the MTA USB driver).

    She also said that there would be an update in the future BUT only for windows 8.1 and above. I said but what about Windows 7 and below users. She responded that they would not be getting any updates.

    I find this most extraordinary as MS would be alienating thousands of Windows users. I have re-contacted Google who were very interested in this development and will be escalating this issue further.

    I think this needs looking into both from Google’s side and MS’s.

    Further ‘Bugs’ Have also appeared since the update – these are random.

    On some occasions after you have pressed the power button to go to the lock screen, the phone takes you straight to the ‘received calls’ screen.
    All you can see is the back ground colours!
    This usually happens sometime after you have received and cleared an incoming call. You then press the power button again to take you off this screen.
    Again you press the power button and this takes you correctly to the lock screen. After swiping upwards you are then taken to the received calls screen with all the information on it as there should be, although you have not deliberately tried to access this screen.

    The other ‘bug’ the phone has suffered from is when returning back to the home screen the phone randomly shows flashing outlines of various screens(no idea which!).
    Pressing the power button stops this and all returns to normal.

    I do not know if these are true bugs but the phone suffered none of these problems when running Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

    I hope someone can resolve these issues along with the others reported by nexus 5 users.]

    The phone was last week returned to LG's warranty service company and has been returned with the problems resolved and the phone flashed back to Android 4.4.2. I have now updated it to Android 4.4.4 with NO problems(as it was before OTA to Android 5.0). I will not updated again to Android 5.0 until I can feel assured that there should not be any problems of this type. I do feel Google could have been more forth coming relating to these bugs.

    I had been using nexus 5 and also got android 5.0.1. Had to get the motherboard replaced from lg service center due to some technical issue, which came factory installed with android 4.4.4. Now I am unable to update again to lollipop. Kindly suggest and help.

      Either wait for it....or flash it. Did that with 5.0

    I Still haven't received "over-the-air (OTA) update" for Android 5. I'm still at 4.4.4 (updated last month - Dec). Am I just unlucky and missed it all-together? Or maybe I need to be patient and wait maybe a couple more weeks?
