Nexus 4 receiving Android 5.1 OTA software upgrade



At some point Google Android developers team ended the Nexus 4 software update program, as it was considered an obsolete device, but it appears that the team behind Android project has reconsidered the Nexus 4 once more, and they are now deploying an over the air software update to Android 5.1, as owners of such devices report all over the place (Reddit, XDA forums).

You can either wait for the download notification to hit your Nexus 4 or you can install firmware build LMY47O manually, that if you have experience into installing custom ROMs field. Either way, the Android 5.1 is here and it is an exciting news!

Dont worry, it wont brick your phone as it happened with Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 tablets.
