Android 5.0.1 Factory Images released by Google for Nexus 5
Google has announced that it has released the Android 5.0.1 Factory Images for the Nexus 5. The Factory Images can be a life saver if you've screwed up while trying to flash a custom ROM, and you've bricked your phone. Or suppose you've rooted your Nexus 5 and an OTA update is coming. If you don't want to miss the update, you can quickly use the Factory Images to return your handset to the latest factory settings.

The build for the Android 5.0.1 update is LRX22C. All you need to do is follow the directions on the screen. Keep in mind that flashing a new system image will wipe all of the data from your phone. Before you tap your heels three times and say that there is no place like home, make sure that you've made a backup of any personal information that you don't want to discover missing.

In the event that you need to yank the cord on the parachute that will gently land you to safely, merely click on the sourcelink below!

So far good, but too early too tell IMO

The issue I was having on 5.0 was the system memory leak
It happened to me once every few days, so that's gonna take a week or so to see if it happens again or not

But I'm lucky, some people were reporting only 2 SOT or getting the memory leak every day

Seems to have fixed the battery drain issue but still the apps running in the background need multiple times clearing to get rid of them completely
and it kinda screwed up the google now launcher for me , had to move to a different one
i cant comment about the memory leak many people face since i never had them
looks like it'll take google a month or two before it can get rid of the bugs

p.s i used the OTA zip files

Running 5.0.1 on nexus 4, quite a lot of stuff got fixed, but there's still a few ups and downs with the video playback now and then.

I also have 5.0.1 already installed in my Nexus 4. I have noticed anything new or any improvement but I did not have any problems at all with 5.0. In fact 5.0 improved my battery life drastically (like to double the time) from ver 4.4.4.
