Thanks to their legal issues with Cyanogen Inc., OnePlus was forced to work on its own custom ROM for the One, especially after the former announced that they won’t be providing software updates to the Indian variant of the handset.
Android 5.0 Lollipop Release Date, News and Features
OnePlus releases first alpha build of their own non-Cyanogen custom ROM based on Lollipop for the One
With Lollipop being such a major release of Android, some bugs are bound to slip by through Google’s QA testing. One such bug is a nasty memory leak that has been plaguing Lollipop right since the first developer preview that Google had released at I/O this year.
After initially rolling out the Lollipop update for the Galaxy S5 in Poland, Samsung has started a wider rollout of the update starting from Spain. The company is expected to rollout the update to other European countries over the next couple of weeks.
Like any other Nexus device, the Nexus 6 also comes with an unlockable bootloader and not an unlocked one. The difference between the two is pretty minor on paper but makes a lot of difference when you try to gain root access or install a custom recovery on the device.
According to a page on Samsung’s Finland website, the Korean giant plans on updating quite a few of its older devices to Android 5.0 Lollipop, including the Galaxy Note 2 and the Galaxy S4.
The Moto X and Moto G were among the first devices to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update — at least in the United States. The Lenovo owned company has since then taken its own sweet time to start a wider rollout of the update in other regions of the world.
For its size, the Nexus 6 comes with a paltry 3220mAh battery that provides the device with enough juice to get through the day. To make up for a hefty battery, Motorola and Google bundled the a Turbo Charger with the device.
Google has started pushing a newer build of Lollipop — Android 5.0.2 — to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). It has also pulled the Android 5.0.1 factory images for the 2012 Wi-Fi Nexus 7, and replaced it with the one based on Android 5.0.2.
Google has started rolling out the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update for the Nexus 7. The company has also uploaded the factory image and relevant binaries for the device on its developer website.
