Android 5.0.1 Lollipop raw AOSP builds for several Google Nexus tablets come to surface

It seems that Android 5.0 Lollipop, the factory AOSP images of which got released roughly a month ago, is not the newest variation of Google's OS anymore. This title now belongs to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop. Its raw AOSP builds are all rolling under the LRX22C name and are now available for the Wi-Fi-only versions of the HTC-made Google Nexus 9, the Google Nexus 7 (2013), and the Google Nexus 10. 

As the naming suggests, Android 5.0.1 is just a minor update over Android 5.0. There's no word on what's exactly been improved, however, it is logical that Google has did it best to fix some of the more serious bugs and flaws that many of the early Lollipop adopters experienced - the Wi-Fi and the flashlight bugs, for example.

The rumor mill also has it that Android 5.0.1 might also hit the various Android Wear-powered gadgets. One of the main that goodies it will introduce is said to be better battery life, which is always welcome, regardless of platform or gadget!

The only thing that I expect from Lollipop is ART. I have great expectations about it and the 64bit implementation. Visuals can be done by myself from 3rd party apps (NiLS for lock screen notificatons, Textra for sms, Blue for emailing etc.).

Lollipop ruined my '12 Nexus 7. It was barely usable, with apps freezing for several seconds. Yesterday evening I reset it to factory state and it seems to be more responsive now. Moreover, Lollipop stopped reflowing text when it's zoomed, whether in the browser or in other apps. Hopefully 5.0.1 is restoring this.

This will be my benchmark for Nvidia, they rolled 5.0 to my Shield pretty quick, will they do it again as quickly?
