I was wondering if I'm the only one who hasn't gotten the 5.0 lollipop update for the LG Nexus 4. I know that google already phased out the 5.0.2 update. I rooted my phone like a couple of months ago but removed the root access shortly after. I am hoping that it has nothing to do with that.

Koodo is almost 2 months late delivering the lollipop update.. None of us have gotten it. When I bought my nexus 4, the clerk advised that I would always be the first to get new Android updates. Turns out that's only true if you're not with koodo. Pretty unimpressed

My Nexus 4 got the update a few weeks ago. After Christmas, I went and upgraded to the Nexus 5 and its still running on KitKat. Totally unimpressed. Lollipop was actually a really great update.

Google is tasked with releasing Android upgrades for your device, perhaps you should forward a complaint to them. The clerk was absolutely correct. The advantage of having a Nexus device is that you can bypass carrier upgrades altogether and flash a new factory image yourself, problem solved.

A quick search of the bugs associated with Lollipop will make many users think twice before upgrading to the new OS. Issues such as broken Wi-Fi functionality, massive battery drain, severe lag and devices crashing, to the device factory resetting itself are just some of the problems people have encountered after upgrading to Lollipop.

Your phone still works. The last thing people want is a bug-ridden OS and the last thing Koodo wants is to have to explain why the software isn't operating as expected, which to be fair, they have nothing to do with. Hang tight, the upgrade is on it's way. If you can't wait, you have other options.

The 18 month thing has always been google,s policy, however they have definitely said that the Nexus 4 will get the update. Many Nexus 4 owners have already received OTA updates. I purchased mine exactly 1 year ago and have not recieved the update yet. I expect that they are working out the bugs as they are already at 5.02. They have also stated the 2012 Nexus 7 will be updated to 5 . I also own the 2012 Nexus 7 and since it is WiFi only it has no connection to Koodoo or any carrier. It also is still at 4.4.4. I think us older device owners just need to be more patient.

I got fed up with waiting and did the flash update almost 2 months ago. Works great. Nexus 4.
