    Back in December, the Nexus 7 (2012) received a new factory image with the build number LRX22G, containing an update to Android 5.0.2. Now the Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi and Nexus 10 are following suite, as factory images have just landed for both of these tablets.

    So what’s new in Android 5.0.2? Like we saw with the Nexus 7 (2012), the update brings no noticeable user-facing changes and instead is all about introducing bug fixes meant to improve the overall stability of Android Lollipop. As XDA mentioned when the update hit for the Nexus 7 (2012), the update specifically addresses issues “with MountService which should now start before performBootDexOpt [and] changes related to NAND have also been pushed. Fstrim, introduced in Android 4.3, caused some serious issues on Lollipop… devices with slow NAND should now have a noticeable performance boost.” There’s likely a few device specific bug fixes in there as well.

    For those not comfortable with flashing ROMs, or those that don’t want to go through the hassle for a minor update, we’re sure it is only a matter of time before the OTA reaches your device.
