Google has been busy pushing out Android 5.1 factory images the last few weeks, which is great if you love getting high on Android!  Tonight Google has posted the third 5.1 build for the Nexus 6, and the second build for the Nexus 5.  Both builds are denoted by LMY47I. We are not yet sure what changes are in this new build, but considering it is the third build in three weeks for the Nexus 6, it is likely nothing too major.  Rest assured, the HOA team will dig into this build soon enough and see if there are any hidden important changes.

If you’re ready to get super high on Android by flashing this 5.1 build to your personal Nexus 5 or Nexus 6 device, be sure to check out Max’s tutorial on how to update and root your Nexus device.  Once you’ve read through everything in the tutorial you can hit the source link below to grab the factory image files directly from Google.  Let us know in the comments if you find any interesting changes with this new build before we do!

"I am currently a researcher and Adjunct Professor at Arizona State University and Grand Canyon University. I fell in love with Android with the Nexus One release and realized that it was superior to iOS in all the ways I care about. I still use a Mac (and an iPhone for the camera), but my Apple tech products pale in comparison to my number of Android devices (watches, tablets, and phones). When I’m not rooting/modding one of my many Android phones or doing math/programming, you can find me taking in Phoenix Suns/Arizona Diamondbacks games in downtown Phoenix, and drinking good beer!"
