Currently there are factory images available for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 2012 (Wifi and 3G), Nexus 7 2013 (Wifi and LTE), Nexus 10 and even Nexus Player — but we're still waiting on the Nexus 9, sadly.
As we reported earlier, Android 5.1 brings support for multiple SIMs and cross-platform HD Voice, along with Device Protection which ties your Android device to your Google account and prevents unwanted access to your device even if it goes through a factory reset. Additionally, there are some tweaks to quick settings for easier control over Bluetooth and WiFi network switching.
If you happen to own one of the aforementioned devices, feel free to hit up the links below to grab the factory images and start flashing away. Speaking of flashing, check out our comprehensive guide on the process for a step-by-step guide to flashing your Nexus device with the latest firmware.
