Android 5.1 Lollipop for T-Mobile Nexus 6 now rolling out

motorolanexus6official

At long last, Android 5.1 is rolling out officially for T-Mobile customers rocking the Nexus 6. The most concrete confirmation comes from T-Mo’s software updates page which now shows the N6 for the first time, and states that the Android 5.1 update process is completed.

To add to that, the company’s product guru, Des tweeted out to confirm that the software is making its way to Nexus 6 now:

If you have a Nexus 6, and it hasn’t shown up yet, give it some time. The update comes with VoLTE and HD Voice call support as well as unlocking the device’s potential to pick up the carrier’s 700MHz frequency airwaves. The update weighs in at around 409MB and can be downloaded over-the-air on a Wi-Fi connection. The software versions page indicates that you won’t be able to download and install it over cellular network yet, but that ability could come soon.

As we mentioned in a previous post, Wi-Fi calling does not come in this update. That will come separately, once all parties involved are in agreement that it works consistently well.

    Wonder if the OTA sideload file from google has the unlocked 700mhz radios.. Hmm. I do see the hd/LTe voice part but I’m not sure. Sure does perform a lot better than 5.0 for sure. Much smoother, 0 lag

    • David VanHouse

      700mhz was enabled with the initial 5.1 rollout (D). I saw my n6 connect to band 12 today

      • knotjeff

        Where do you look to see what band you are connecting to?

        • Levenly

          LTE Discovery or a similar app

      • stebe

        How u verify that?

  • tmobile

    i haven’t seen this phone in person yet but does this phone come unlocked if i buy it from the tmobile store and does it have bloatware tmobile apps installed and also if the bootloader come locked or unlocked

    • John Mayer

      If you buy this phone from T-Mobile it’s the completely vanilla version you would get from Motorola. A friend of mine bought one from TMO and started using it on Verizon before they started selling it. Everything works perfectly

    • scweddyballs

      If you buy it from tmobile you will have to request Sim unlock. The boot loader is always locked by OEM, but can unlock your own bootloader in the developer options Dev options>OEM unlock. Then fastboot command fastboot OEM unlock. As far as bloatware there is no tmo bloat. Just google stuff

      • Nexus 6 is SIM unlocked out of the box from T-Mobile.

      • Jose Correa

        The nexus 6 is unlocked out the box. When you buy from T-Mobile. Boot loader is locked but it takes two minutes to unlock.

  • MKashi

    This version seems to be different from the stock N6 5.1 version available at Google for loading via fastboot. The Google version is LMY47E while this one is LMY47M.

    • schweddyballs

      Mine is LMY47D, wonder what the differences are.

      • MKashi

        XDA figures D is sprint, E is verizon, M is T-mobile.. my guess is the M might have a different radio firmware

        • NickZuclich

          M radio firmware shows the same as D

        • schweddyballz

          Yeah I have D on T-Mobile working fine.

        • eAbyss

          Same radio firmware. The later letters are just a little more up to date.

    • Cam Bunton

      I had someone contact me who was able to find Band 12 LTE for the first time after the update.

      • Nathan S.

        I am excited to hear this. I have a couple stores I shop at in my area where signal is basically dead, hopefully soon that will not be an issue.

      • David VanHouse

        Band 12 was enabled with the initial “D” release

  • brand1399

    Anyone get the update yet?

    • Orion

      Nope still didn’t get it yet.

      • Guest

        Nothing in Chicago Yet either

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    I got it first thing this morning. I am using the phone on T-Mobile but I didn’t buy from T-Mobile.

    • guest

      where did you buy it from google?

      • JaswinderSinghJammu

        I actually bought it directly from Motorola.

  • Nathan S.

    I personally have not yet received it. Hopefully sometime today!

    Checked manually as well.

  • UMA_Fan

    Makes sense band 12 support will come with VoLTE since without VoLTE you could theoretically be in a place getting LTE signal without the ability to make voice calls and SMS due to band 12’s ability to get through buildings better.

    • eAbyss

      Band 12 with 5.1 was a Nexus 6 only radio patch, it’s independent and not part of Android.

  • Bradley Karas

    Ugh when will Samsung get their S*** together with the Note 4?!?!?!

    • Updates Suck

      Ugh, considering this damn update has totally jacked up my Note 3… I don’t understand why everybody is chomping at the bit to get an update that will do more harm than good. Example, before update my phone would fully charge in 2 to 3 hours. I had my phone on the charger for 9 hours last night and it went from 14% to 26%… in 9 hours? The screen now constantly turns on and off every 5 to 10 seconds while on the charger. Software updates are not the wonderment you people all make them out to be. Have enought problems with my PC, now I have the same crap on my phone.

    • eAbyss

      Whenever they decide to drop TouchWiz. In other words, never.

  • Winnt

    WOW, see how easy that is, when you don’t have all the bloat, loading the system down… Strumming my fingers on a Note 4…..

    • Orion

      Well that’s why you buy a Nexus. :)

  • keasycase

    Looks like the licences t-mobile bought in north Dakota can start being used… It’s clear on the 700mhz map now

    • eAbyss

      I’m sure the 2 people living in North Dakota will be grateful. :-)

  • notpoliticalyet

    Good to see it is finally rolling out. Now at least we got some news.

  • FILA

    You’re going to love 5.1!! Alot better then 5.0

  • Soultruthgemini

    So just so im not misunderstaning, I have 5.0 ( i just got my nexus 6 on saturday). does this mean I will get this update as well?

    • Leo

      Correct.

  • Raiterio Patterson

    To the Nexus 6 owners: the drought is over. Wish I would’ve bought a Nexus 6 back then but it’s too big. I got medium sized hands

  • Jorge Suero

    I dont get it i have a Nexus 6 purchased from google and i have had android 5.1for a while now but i still dont have VoLTE

    • schweddyballs

      Settings>more>cellular networks>enhance 4g LTE mode?

      • Jorge Suero

        yea nothing like that on its very weird or maybe i have to wait for everyone else to have it

        • eAbyss

          You’re probably actually on 5.0.1 then or you’re with a carrier that doesn’t support it.

        • Jorge Suero

          I’m with Tmobile and i have 5.1 I’d be more than happy to show you if I knew how to put a picture up

  • David Firebaugh

    I have LRX22C. ANY IDEAS ON THAT? STILL NO UPDATE HERE IN NORTH TEXAS

  • Rafael

    Right now waiting… Florida here… Since around 10am been Pressing that update button… Nothing yet…im looking forward to how responsive is under 5.1 and also for VoLTE. Still no signs of the update.

    • Lollipoper

      Pressing the update button more than once a day is a waste of time according to some articles that I’ve read online.

      • eAbyss

        Yep. You get only one chance to be approved for an update during each stage. If you don’t get it then you have to wait for the next stage to get another chance.

        All you’re doing is wasting time by mashing that update button.

  • Bob the builder

    No update here in south Florida

  • tm

    Got it 2 weeks ago

  • Mike

    Nothing in Tampa bay yet ugggg

  • Guest

    Nothing in CT

    • Ralph Conrad

      I’m also in CT and nothing on mine yet either

  • Jace Cole

    If you buy your Nexus 6 from the Google Play Store and using it on T-Mo will you also get this update?

    • Jorge Suero

      I have the nexus 6 purchased from Google play and my phone has already been updated but as I said earlier down below i dont have VoLTE I don’t know why sadly :/

      • Marc

        May not be available in your area.

  • almar

    I’m in Washington state with a so cal phone number and still haven’t received the update

  • TatDude806

    Should I complain now that the Note 4 is STILL waiting?

    • schweddyballs

      No you should expect that with a Samsung phone

  • brand1399

    Still nothing… Washington D.C.

  • Bob the builder

    Nothing in Florida

  • Dom

    Has anyone received this T-Mobile ota yet?

    • YankInDaSouth

      I did yesterday around 9:30AM (EST)
      Georgia

      • Corey Jalette

        Did you do it by checking or did it just pop up?

        • YankInDaSouth

          Just popped up while at work.
          Every morning I power my phone off for about 5 minutes then power it back … Not sure that has anything to do with anything, but figures I’d throw it out there LOL
          Also I was on 5.0 not 5.0.1 … Received a replacement device Monday and it was in 5.0 and it never prompted me to go to 5.0.1 …

        • Guest

          Do you have 5.01 or 5.1?

        • YankInDaSouth

          5.1 …. Went from 5.0 straight to 5.1

  • buelowsm
    • Nicolas Aguilar

      Whats that supposed to do? Dont you have to do a lot of shit to get that put on?from what ive read it looks more complicated then rooting.

  • Nicolas Aguilar

    No update since its been released, starting to bug me.. I mean seriously how many N6 owners are there at Tmo, it shouldn’t be taking this long. Its not like they need to do a mass update to samsung devices. I also have read that it actually puts you behind que if you hit the check for update.. so who knows maybe im making it worse for myself trying to check on updates.

    • eAbyss

      Nexus updates are rolled out in stages to avoid mass problems. How it works is you have a certain percentage chance of receiving an update for each stage. Once you or your device checks for an update during a stage and gets denied you will not have the opportunity to be approved for an update until the next stage. It doesn’t matter what you do or how many times you mash the check for updates button, you will not receive an update during that stage. The next stage will increase the odds of receiving an update but again you will only have one chance to be approved. The same happens for the next stages.

      You only have a 1% chance of being approved during the first stage then I think it goes 10%, 25%, 50%, then 100%. The first stage is 24-48 hours and the whole process takes roughly 3 weeks.

      Example starting with 1000 devices:

      1000, Stage 1 (1%), 10 devices receive it
      990, Stage 2 (10%), 99 devices receive it
      891, Stage 3 (25%), 223 devices receive it
      668, Stage 4 (50%), 334 devices receive it
      334, Stage 5 (100%), 334 devices receive it
      0 (100% deployed)

      Basically you’re not making it worse, you’re just wasting your time. If you can’t wait any longer and you’re computer savvy you can just sideload the update (Google it).

  • notpoliticalyet

    Nothing here yet and location doesn’t matter. Must be lots of Nexus 6 users on Tmobile that are waiting for the OTA. I hear 6.0 is about to roll out next week.ha

  • 1ceTr0n

    Where the farking hell is Note 4’s lollipop damnit!

    • eAbyss

      Blame TouchWiz.

  • notpoliticalyet

    Not hearing much about this update. Did anyone get the OTA today?

    • Jesus Soto

      Nope I have checked all over the place on the web and a lot of forum people are saying the same thing no one has gotten the update. I have not see not one person saying that they received it or how it works. I don’t think it was actually released.

      • notpoliticalyet

        Yeah, something doesn’t seem right here. I wonder if they ran into an issue deploying it. I got this phone form T-mobile for the first time with a Nexus device, always bought from Google. It also appears this update is more carrier specific. We may see more of this. Android still still rather fragmented. and it’s surprising that it still is. They did a good job with the Nexus 6 being able to work unlocked with all carriers but they need to get the software thing down smoother with a device that works on all carriers. This is the first device doing this with a Nexus so this build that is specific to carriers seems to be new. They probably realized that the next updates will need to or something was missing from earlier releases. We know the VOLTE wasn’t released and is not a necessity and more of an upgraded feature.

  • Josbel Gonzalez

    No update yet in florida.

  • AnthonyRyan89

    Nothing here yet in South Fl

  • dboiny

    Nothing here in ny

  • mike

    Nothing today

  • Rick

    My gf’s nexus 6 on at&t received 5.1 this morning. Still waiting on my ota on T-Mobile.

  • Jeb

    Nothing yet on T-Mobile Nexus 6 in Ohio

  • Greg Victor

    No update in brooklyn, ny as of 9:52 pm.

  • acro47

    No update for T-Mobile Nexus 6 in Washington, DC as of Sat. 11pm–everybody has a different “rolling out” story. March 9 on AndroidPit: “The first devices to get the Android 5.1 update will be the T-Mobile Nexus 6 and Verizon Nexus 6.” March 13 on CNet: “The [T-Mobile] spokesperson added that the Android 5.1 update for the Nexus 6 phablet will begin rolling out next week.” Glad I didn’t get the Galaxy Note 4, they are still running KitKat!

  • KYRO

    Nothing here in Chicago yet.

  • Critic4U

    Sunday 3/22/15 7:47AM still nothing, we are starting to get annoyed with you T-Mobile HTFU!!!!

  • Bryan

    Still nothing, its been a sad week, T-Mobile and google don’t care about us

  • mike carrisal

    Nothing here in San Antonio….. I hate waiting

  • llordess

    Flashed mine with 5.1 E everything works fine, volte, performance, battery. T-Mobile is the worst carrier when it comes to OTA updates.

    • Rafael

      It was supposed to be M

  • ip247365

    When are they going to roll it out for the S4?!

    • Erik Papesh

      Never

  • tired of waiting

    At this point I’ll have the nexus 7 before we get the update WoW becoming not impressed

  • Steve

    no update yet…long island,ny…7 am….yawn

  • Kyle Thompson

    zip in Washington DC here as well. this is ridiculous. also defeats the point of buying a nexus for first-to-arrive updates when it takes weeks past 5.1 deployment from google to arrive to my phone! get your act together TMO.

    • Frankie Diesel

      Did you get the update?

      • Kyle Thompson

        nada, the wait rolls on.

        • Chris Fisher

          No update in Cincinnati, Ohio for my Nexus 6.

        • ShoNuff

          Same no update in cincy

      • Rafael

        Still nada…. In Florida

    • Durandal_1707

      Well… non-Nexus devices are only getting 5.0 right now, if they’re lucky. So I certainly wouldn’t say waiting a couple of weeks for 5.1 negates the point of buying a Nexus.

      Really, we have to not get too spoiled here.

  • Mike M

    Nothing in Chicago

  • Cam

    Tmo support told me that the latest they had was 5.0.1 and referred me to Motorola. Motorola told me the same thing. I pointed both of them to the Tmobile support page…amazing…ly bad.

  • Frankie Diesel

    Its 3/23 still no 5.1 update for Nexus 6. On T-Mobile. Does anyone have any info ??

  • Steve

    Crazy Verizon late to party and they will have 5.1…stupid

  • Rafael

    3/23 10:16am
    Nothing in regards to the OTA… Checked wifi and everything is OK… But missing the update…. Is it that perhaps some dum dum forgot to turn on the switch to deploy the update?

  • Maxx_75

    Yeah, about that…………… not so much.

  • winnt

    Just curious, but has ANYONE seen this yet? Or just t-mo hype?

  • buelowsm

    It is the ota file link, just download it and install it. Not complicated, took me like 5 minutes.

    • Ralph Conrad

      do you have to have an unlocked bootloader?

  • alefy afonso

    I have a nexus 6 I still didn’t get the update, but my nexus 5 got it? What’s going on??

    • Rob

      Its vapor ware. If you want it now, grab the factory image, back up your phone, unlock it, flash the factory image. It’s worth the hassle.

  • Jesus Soto

    Just side load the update I got tired of waiting. Works perfectly fine I get better service!

    • Mav6

      I did that yesterday.

  • drupi79

    Got it This Morning, Wichita KS

    • Rafael

      Congrats… Let us know how is living in full LTE like and also, check the speed and if you noticed is more responsive…. Have fun with 5.1

      • drupi79

        the things I have noticed so far is better signal for LTE overall. my LG G3 had damn near full LTE in the building I work in, when I went to the Nexus 6 it would keep dropping to HSPA+ now I am back to holding LTE half to full signal all the time.
        My phone has been snappy from day one, I don’t have a lot of apps or Games loaded mostly just things I need daily at work and running around town. My Nexus 7 LTE tablet gets most of my entertainment duties.

        I will run a speed test after while but my last one here in Wichita was 55Mbps down and 20Mbps up

        • Rafael

          Looking forward to what your speeds are… Do you have 700s in your area?

        • drupi79

          no 700 in my area but I am a regular visitor to KC which does last speed test was still in the 50Mbps range.

    • Nathan S.

      Nice, thx for the update. Mine has not yet showed up. Blue Springs and Oak Grove Mo area.

  • Kevin

    drupi79 did you get it automatically or did you go to check for the update.

    • drupi79

      I woke up this morning to a notification for the new update

  • Greg Victor

    Got the update this morning. Brooklyn, NY

    • Kevin

      Did it come straight through to phone.

      • Greg Victor

        When i got up this morning. I was greeted with an alert that a new update was available.

        • Kevin

          was your phone on wifi or data from phone.

        • Greg Victor

          I don’t use WiFi. The phone was connected to LTE.

        • Nathan S.

          Thank you. I was wondering if it needed WIFI or something in order to pull it down. Guess not.

    • Rick M

      I’m in Brooklyn as well. Sucks that I didn’t get it yet.

      • Greg Victor

        You’ll get it soon.

        • Frankie Diesel

          Your on T-Mobile??

        • Greg Victor

          Yup…

        • Mav6

          I guess T-Mobile is starting to push it out now.

    • Mav6

      Funny you said that because I know 2 other who got it this morning; Brooklyn also. I also know a few more people who are still waiting I ended up just sideloading the OTA lastnight.

  • Irfan

    Nexus 5 got the update 5.1 : may i ask you why not VOLTE on Nexus 5 ?

    • Greg Victor

      Maybe the phone lacks the hardware to support VoLTE.

  • Jean

    Downloaded the update but it didn’t update or restart

  • Jason

    Where’s the update for Nexus 6. It’s been 2 weeks since this came out.

    • Frankie Diesel

      Are you rooted but stock??

      • Jason

        No, not rooted, but am stock. I prefer to get the OTA update as I don’t want to backup everything and reinstall.

  • Doug Z.

    Pretty sure Google is just playing games. Not convinced this is ever going to show up.

  • Kevin

    For everyone that has received the 5.1 update. Did they keep checking for updates or did they just wait till they received it. Another question is for the people that have received it were their phones on wifi or connected to LTE?

    • Frankie Diesel

      usually the update pops right up I don’t think it makes a difference whether your on wifi or LTE on my note 3 I got a system update in the parking lot of a mall 1 time so I don’t think that matters.

    • Mav6

      I side loaded it, I couldn’t wait any longer, funny thing is it looks like a few of my friends got it today.

  • Josh R

    I haven’t received it yet either… :( -San Antonio Texas

  • Frankie Diesel

    I know on other phones I had you can try to force the update by going to system apps and scroll over to All and then scroll down to Google services framework and clear data and then head for stop and then go back and try to do the update, they say if you do it a few times sometimes it pushes the update through your phone I tried it on my phone and its still not working but I guess it’s worth the try.

  • steven

    Just side loaded it on my nexus 6. The way its looking this is gonna take forever to roll out…

  • Rafael

    3/24….no update yet…. I have faith in you tmo…. I’m stock, uprooted, and waiting for 5.1…hoping tomorrow is the day…. Florida here!

  • Wow, already got 5.1 for my 2012 Nexus 7 and I am still waiting for TMO to push it out to my “flagship” Nexus 6. WTF!

  • Paul

    Just got the notification…Florida

    • AnthonyRyan89

      Where in Fl?

  • jim

    Got mine but its stuck just saying waiting to download

      • Jim

        Ya I was it eventually came thru

    • Chris Fisher

      Cincinnati, Ohio. Just received the ready to update notification. I hit go and it is stuck in ‘Waiting to download…’. It may be my company wireless but with jim having the same issue maybe it is not…

  • Aneel

    I just got the Update on my Nexus 6 but as soon as I downloaded it and I proceeded with the installation, 1/3 of the way in, it failed. Now I’m back to 5.0.1 and it says my phone is up to date. What happened?

  • mayhem

    Updating now
    Nyc

    • TT

      Did u check manually or did you just get the update notification?

  • mayhem

    To the people having issues just turn on your WiFi

  • winnt

    Updated this morning, too. SW Florida.

  • Daniel DuBief

    Update here in Boise, ID

  • Rick M

    Being stock rooted shouldn’t effect my OTA status right? Bootloader unlocked but running stock recovery still.

    • Mav6

      Once you have stock recovery you should be fine it may remove/wipe root files.

  • mike carrisal

    So far, NOBODY in Michigan has stated that they received it. Do I have to drive to Toledo or something in order for this update to become available???

    • HP

      Still waiting for it in Detroit. My Nexus is directly from Motorola.. Hopefully that won’t matter for this ota.

      • D Griffin

        I’m in Detroit as well, and it ain’t happening. Going to probably just root and go from there. Won’t be the first time.

      Another Detroit area N6 owner without the update here. This is really starting to get annoying, the cycle should take days and not weeks to get to everyone.

      go into Google Services Framework and clear everything, after you do that check for updates again and you should see it there.

    got the update yesterday I tried to download on wifi and didn’t work when I switched it to LTE it downloaded but as it installed it crashed called T Mobile they told me to do a factory data reset I did it it still crashed I called Nexus and I put in for a new phone I don’t know why this happened. It sucks.

  • Ning

    No updates yet, in bay area, sigh

    • meandmynexus

      Just got mine in the bay… Don’t know if location matters. But it isn’t really much different than 5.01

  • Maxx_75

    Still no update 8 days later. The people that push the button should be in the earlier soaks. We would also be the best qualified to report problems. It makes ZERO sense at all.

    • tink tink

      I reset my phone and then the update popped up. Could be a coincidence but it I have it now. But I isn’t much different at all. Its more like 5.03

      • AnthonyRyan89

        You did a factory reset on your phone ?

        • tink tink

          Yes

  • Jerry Montiel

    Nothing in Southern Cali :’/

    • ramonq619

      Same here. Live in San Diego and nothing

  • David

    I would like to know how it is my signal used to be great where I live and different work locations but now my signal is lacking and won’t improve until I get this update that so far I can’t get.

  • justmee002

    Tonight, I was able to force it to upgrade. When it was completed, I got 2 or 3 hangout (?) screens but was OK after restarting it twice. I haven’t seen much of improvement.

    • Ralph Conrad

      How did you force it to upgrade? I bought mine from T-Mobile and I haven’t gotten the ota

      • Guest

        I spoke too soon… The update showed up 10 min after clearing and forced stopping google services framework. Then downloading it took 18 minutes. My wifi speed was 20 Mbps down and 3mbps up, idk if this is relevant lol. Installation took about 5 min.

    • AnthonyRyan89

      I’d like to know also I’m still waiting for this update.

  • USCmed

    Factory reset worked like a charm. Immediately updated after doing it. So Cal

  • Wan Yuan

    Holy Jesus its almost 2 weeks where’s 5.1??

  • Mike M

    Seriously, what’s taking so long. No update in Chicago. Official t mobile site says update available, so where is it ?

  • ramonq619

    So I forced it to update. Yo do this go to setting-apps-all apps-google framework services- clear cache, clear data, and force close. Go back and try to update. Worked for me

    • AnthonyRyan89

      That worked for me also I cleared the data and force close and checked for an update. And there it was.

      • Ralph Conrad

        It didn’t work for me T_T

    • bjc

      This worked for me as well. Updated in Minneapolis

      • bjc

        I’m now on Band 12 as well

    • wesst

      This worked for me as well. Thanks for the tip.

    • Vexzt

      worked!

    • Ning

      Amazing!!! Works perfectly!!

      This process is not recommended. It can have bad side effects, and is at minimum a nuisance. Just my two bits…

    • geust

      Bah tried that in Chicago, did not work for me

    • brand1399

      This worked for me as well. How do I tell if I’m on band 12?

    • williejackbrainer

      Thanks ramonq619! The only thing I noticed so far is Hangouts keeps stopping even thought I have is disabled. Other than that everything else works.

  • Rick M

    I followed ramonq619 method and got the update. When I downloaded and installed recovery showed an error and I was forced to reboot manually. When the phone came back on I was still on 5.0.1 and now the update won’t come back even using the below method. Any ideas??

  • Titus Langford

    I had to sideload build LMY47M. TWRP wouldnt let the OTA update, I had to go go back to stock, wipe my device then sideload the the OTA update. Im done with rooting my phone seems to cause more harm than good. I only needed root access for one app and I will live without it.

  • MotoGuy

    i don’t see band 12 i’m still running on band 4

  • Ben Tolman

    Finally showed up OTA to my device in Salt Lake City.

  • AnthonyRyan89

    Calls keep on dropping for me since update. Anyone else have this problem.

    • bjc

      I have seen that problem as well. Not good

      • AnthonyRyan89

        I’m not sure because of the VoLTE because my friend has the 6 plus HD voice and the call would fail all of sudden. But than someone with iPhone 6 on AT&T I had the same issue. So maybe if I turn off Enhanced 4G LTE Mode would it change anything.

  • Steve

    Just found that 5.1 breaks contact addresses over Bluetooth on paired devices. Essentially, you can only see name and phone data, no address info. Not good for newer cars that support this feature for navigation. 5.1 fail.

  • mmckeever01

    Got the OTA update this morning. Miami, FL

  • UralBas

    Took three weeks but it for here. Now I have an LTE signal where in the past I’d barely get edge if anything at all.

    Speed is better, battery management is great. Overall a great experience. Kudos on Lollipop 5.1
