If you missed the news yesterday then you missed a little bit of big news. Android’s new favourite operating System, Android 5.0 (Lollipop) received an update. This was not a massive update and certainly not to the level we saw on the actual 5.0 update. Nevertheless, the update is here taking Android incrementally from 5.0 to 5.0.1. Now, before everyone gets too excited this is only for the Nexus users. If you are a Nexus user than the OTA has commenced and you should be receiving it soon enough. If you cannot wait though then below is a list of currently available updates for your sideloading pleasure.
