Android Lollipop factory image for the Nexus 7 (2012) leaks - possibly final
A leakster has told the guys over at Android Police that Lollipop signed factory images for the Nexus 7 (2012) can be found on Google's servers. Their build is LRX21P, which the leakster claims is most likely the final version, and it does coincide with the build numbers of the Nexus 9's and the Nexus Player's OS – LRX21L and LRX21M.

The AP guys report that there is an issue with the bootloader image, resulting in a signature mismatch – though, the bootloader is the old 4.23, so if you have that – you can just skip fastboot and flash system.img and boot.img.

Seeing as the files are already on Google's servers, this could mean that the company is about to push the update to the 7-inch slabs. There is no word on a Nexus 5 update, though. Who knows – maybe a simultaneous roll-out is possible.

The Nexus 7 was Google's first foray into the tablet market. The 7-inch slab arguably led the "mini tablet" movement, and was quite well received, with powerful hardware (at the time) and an affordable price tag – a lot of users took the plunge and still have one of these around. Google has been doing right by its first tablet and has kept it up to date through the years – it currently runs on Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
