Android Build 5.1.0 [LMY47D] for the Nexus 10 rolls out worldwide via OTA and should also hit other Nexus tablets later this week.

Google already unleashed the Android 5.1 Lollipop update to smaller Nexus devices such as the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6. On the other hand, its only large screen device, namely the Nexus 10, only got it this weekend. Since factory images for the Nexus smartphones were released about at the same time, the Android 5.1 Lollipop update will probably hit the entire family of Nexus tablets in a matter of days as well.

According to, Nexus 10 users worldwide are currently able to get the OTA update for their tablets. The image file is 104.4 MB large and contains Android Build 5.1.0 [LMY47D]. As it usually happens with such updates, the change log includes various bug fixes and stability improvements, as well as performance enhancements.

Speaking of improved performance, YouMobile noticed that boot speed of the Nexus 10 is much better in Android 5.1.0 than in Android 5.0.2, which is the previous update. Unfortunately, the memory leaks that have been reported by multiple users since Android 5.0 Lollipop and have not been fixed by version 5.1 will only be solved by Android 5.1.1 if everything goes as planned.
