Google has just rolled out the latest build of Android 5.1 Lollipop via official factory images for the newly launched Nexus Player, as the device gets bumped to version LMY47D from LRX22C.
Interested users can go ahead and flash the factory images on their Nexus Player, using the step-by-step guide provided below.
IBTimes UK reminds readers that it will not be held liable for any damage to device during or after firmware installation. Users are advised to proceed at their own risk.
Steps to update Nexus Player to Android 5.1 Lollipop via official factory images
- Download the appropriate system image for your device and then unzip it to a safe directory.
- Connect your device to your computer over USB.
- Start the device in fastboot mode with one of the following methods:
- Using the adb tool: With the device powered on, enter the command:
adb reboot bootloader
- Using a key combo: Turn the device off, then turn it on and immediately hold down the relevant key combination for your device. For example, to put a Nexus 5 ("hammerhead") into fastboot mode, press and hold Volume Up + Volume Down + Power as the device begins booting up.
4. If necessary, unlock the device's bootloader by running:
fastboot oem unlock
5. The target device will show you a confirmation screen. (This erases all data on the target device.)
6. Open a terminal and navigate to the unzipped system image directory.
7. Execute the flash-all script. This script installs the necessary bootloader, baseband firmware(s), and operating system. Once the script finishes, your device reboots. You should now lock the bootloader for security:
- Start the device in fastboot mode again, as described above.
- Execute: fastboot oem lock
