Apparently there is an OTA roll out underway from Google for the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013) and the Nexus 10.

Google has released factory images here https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images#hammerheadlrx21o if you can't wait.

Also the Moto G and X are apparently getting it as well.

Anyone got it yet?

anyone on the  MS Office or Android  trial should not update to 5.0 as MS are not supporting Lollipop in the preview

Flashed the update on my N5.  Seems to run OK.  So far - one major annoyance:

Vodafone Sim Toolkit has always run as an 'active' app.  I can't stop it.  I got used to it.  Now with the new notification center, every time I turn my screen on I see this:

Click to see full size

It is very frustrating.  Can I disable the Sim tool kit without rooting my phone?  Can I disable notifications?  'cos I can't figure it out!

Ah yes. This happens on my girlfriends nexus 5 too. I suspect Vodafone might be getting a few complaints... Dammit where's my update!



Did you adb flash or update through OTA?

Have you tried going to System > Apps and then locating the Vodafone App. Select the App and in the next screen deselect notifications.

Not a Vodafone customer, so I cannot confirm it works.

You can also go into Settings > Sound and Notification > App notifications and then block notifications for that app.

It's greyed out.  I can force stop, but I can't disable app or turn off notifications.

I can make that notification a priority, but I can't turn it off (I can for other apps).

I wonder if it's a problem with the vodafone SIM (4 years old now).  Perhaps newer SIM's have a newer toolkit?

Flashed.  I don't like waiting.  The only thing better than new stuff is free new stuff!

Had some downtime at work and thought I'd follow some tutorials.  Never tried it before, took me about 40 minutes all up while doing other stuff at the same time.  Wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, but was not as simple as installing from a factory image on an iPhone!

What guides did you follow? I am keen to get it done as well.

I can't find it again!  The internet is flooded with new guides no less than 12 hours old.  My google fu is failing me.

This guide looks OK, but much longer than the one I used:  http://www.talkandroid.com/guides/beginner/how-to-install-the-lollipop-factory-image-on-your-nexus-device/

basically you need to:
1) Get the factory image.  Unzip it, and unzip it again.
2) Avoid the full software development kit - download and install Minimal ADB and Fastboot instead.
3) Put contents of factory image into root folder of "Minimal ADB and Fastboot"
3) Put your phone in developer mode, allow USB debuging plug into PC and get new PC driver for debuging
4) Unlock bootloader
5) Run script on comand prompt for "Minimal ADB and Fastboot" to flash new image onto your phone.

If you read the above guide in detail it's really not all that bad.  First time I've ever tried it, hope it goes well for you!  There are hundreds of other guides out there now too.

My nexus 5 with Vodafone prepay sim that been using more than 8 years didn't get that notification. I also just flash to lollipop today (this afternoon) so it's been few hours now.
I hope it just a small bug that some people having it.

Google's own guide is pretty straight forward

Obviously people getting the Vodafone STK notification have been running old versions as this issue appeared with Kitkat.

The only fix is to swap your SIM for one that doesn't have the LocalZone app on it. Vodafone stores will do this for free and it only takes about 60 seconds to swap.

Installed it on my One Plus One (very bleeding-edge CM12 build) however really missed screen off gestures so flashed back to stock. Android Lollipop is so beautiful though.
