Still waiting on the Android Lollipop OTA. I'd prefer not to sideload or flash it. Any idea of when it will be coming? Android Lollipop started pushing out to Nexus 4 almost a month ago.

Koodo has nothing to do with when the phone gets updates since it's a Nexus device, it's updated directly from Google.
There were issues with 5.0 and Google has stopped updates for the last week and a half or 2 while they fixed bugs and just started releasing 5.0.1 with the bug fixes.

The Wifi tablets are the first to get the update after the roll out was paused and once there's no reports of any new or still existing bugs then they will begin to roll out to phones starting with the Nexus 5 and 6 and then the 4 will see it soon after.
Just keep hitting the check for updates button every day until it reaches your device.

Koodo is not blocking anything and that story above is complete bull considering you don't even need a SIM Card in your phone to receive updates. I'm running 5.0 on my Nexus 5 that I received OTA while I had no SIM Card in at all.

I'm running Android 5.0.1 now on my Nexus 7 2013 after not being able to get the update for a week after my N5 had it and the N7 2013 was the first Nexus device to recieve the update, trust me it's because they were fixing bugs which is why they're rolling out 5.0.1 now instead of 5.0

Seems that Telus and Koodo customers with the Nexus 4 have been delayed getting the Lollipop update. I read the same thing on the Reddit Nexus 4 forum.

Nexus updates are always available directly from Google, unmolested. Google it and you will find the page with links for all nexus devices.

"Based on your carrier, it may take longer than two weeks after release to get an update."
-From the Google Play Store's website.

Because Koodo would get the devices in batches and updates are done in consecutive batches hence why many Koodo customers are receiving their updates at the same time, makes sense right

Well you just kind of defeated your argument there Kris as its not just Koodo people getting it so why would you think Koodo has something to do with the update?

Ok, that's good to hear. I'm the only one I know with a nexus device that had not been updated. When I searched the web a few weeks ago it seemed as though only koodo users were still waiting.

Anyway, happy it finally came. So far it's working great.

My wife's N4 which is on Koodo still has not gotten any 5.x Lollipop update yet either. My N4, on a Roger's MVNO, got 5.0 and then 5.0.1 weeks ago.

Can *anyone* on Kodoo confirm they have gotten any 5.x update OTA (i.e. not flashed or sideloaded) as proof that Kodoo is not blocking it?

My wife did get her 5.0 and 5.0.1 updates on her N4. I, however, have not and we both are on Koodoo.

Has she done anything other than checking for updates? Is this a data thing that koodo doesnt want to exceed a limit?

Yesterday night I received the much awaited Android's new update 5.0.1. FYI I didn't do anything yesterday evening around 8:00 PM i got the notification there is new update available.

Just my personal opinion- I don't like the new version at all list goes on and on... menu screen background and home page Google bar is freaking white color gives a lot of glare, few animations changed. The most F part is they have removed the native Email app, now you have to use gmail for accessing your emails like Exchange account or you 3rd party, seriously every one don't like using Gmail app.

Disagree about the email app. My 5.0.1 still has the native email app and there are plenty of free email apps on google play. Also disagree about the new look. I like it.

I'm with you. I miss Kit Kat, if I could I'd go back to it. I don't like how it closes the internet tab to go to a next one, you can't go back and forth to existing open tabs as before. I miss that a lot. My photo , galery app is harder to use than b4 . Notifications are all different , I liked it b4. Anyways....I have a Nexus 7 tablet and I will never upgrade to Lollypop. Personal preference though

#Fred Greidanus : It has native email app but it's just the icon the moment you press that it will say something like you have to go to gmail to access your emails, do you want this action permanently.

I updated my N4 (on Koodo network) with Android's new update 5.0.1. last night.

My phone has been effed since. Many apps do not work, simply sit at white screen.

I am unable to connect to my pc to back up my photos/media for a factory reset. SMS texts take forever to go through if the screen doesn't free on me. The only apps consistently working at the moment are google chrome and facebook. System is very laggy.

It has been a nightmare. I suggest you back up your phone before the update.

Do you have a Google account connected to your phone? If so then why don't you just back up your photos and other info to your Google account straight from your device? I've never ever hooked up my phone to a computer and never needed to since it's all done straight from the device to your Google account. I get new devices every couple months and never lose a single thing and it's on my new device with a simple log into my Google account when setting up the phone or after a factory reset.

That's what I'm saying Frank, it's a very cool update and users having issues need to do a factory reset (after backing up their info to their Google account obviously) and I'm sure many issues will magically vanish. If any one with issues does a factory reset and it seems to fix their issues please let me know, thanks.

Another option is to back up your music, photos and other personal data to a cloud service (e.g., Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.). This can also be done right from your phone without the need for tethering your Nexus 4 to a computer.

Before doing a factory reset, try getting into the Android System Recovery and perform a 'wipe cache partition', first. This clears out any lingering temporary files stored in the cache partition. This method does not delete any user files or data and you should see an improvement in performance. (See link to video below).

If for some reason the device is still not performing up to par, then I second Paul's suggestion for performing a factory reset. If you're using the Android recovery method, (factory reset using physical buttons), you can access 'wipe data/factory reset' from the recovery menu, or perform a factory reset from your phone using the software method.

A factory reset will wipe all of your data. Both methods will return your device to a factory default 'first bought' state.
