About two months ago, we were greeted with XPOSED support for Android devices running Lollipop 5.0.x — albeit a very alpha build. XPOSED gives users the ability to download modules that grant extra features to their devices that normally you’d have to have a ROM for. XPOSED creator Rovo89 previously said that this new version wouldn’t work with Android 5.1+, but thanks to an XDA developer, we now have a working build for Android 5.1.
On Monday, sheer hours after Apple’s event ended, Google announced Android Lollipop 5.1 to the masses. What they failed to do, was send OTA updates to the entire Nexus line so that everyone could have it. Luckily, they have uploaded (some of) the factory images for you to download and flash to your Nexus.
Yesterday, when all the Apple hullabaloo was going around, Google decided to grace us with a new Android update, Android 5.1 Lollipop. Android 5.1 was never touted as being a great change from the Lollipop 5.0.2 we have been using, but we’re seeing a lot of fixes and a couple of features relating to networks.
