Android 5.0 now rolling out for the Nexus 4

Just a few days ago we told you it was coming, and now Nexus 4 owners can update their stock Android handset to Android 5.0, by navigating their phone to the system update options. The update weighs in at about 400MB, and you should find a nice, strong Wi-Fi connection before downloading and installing Android 5.0. By the same token, you should make sure that your battery is charged to at least 50% before you start the process.

The update is being sent out on a staggered basis, so if Android 5.0 hasn't hit your Nexus 4 yet, don't jump. Just be a little patient, and before you know it, the latest build of Google's open source OS will be powering your phone.

You must have 500MB of free memory in order to install the update, and of course, rooted phones cannot download or install it unless a clean, stock version of Android is flashed. If you do install the update on your Nexus 4, let us know by dropping your comments in the box below.

Thanks for the tip!
