Download: LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition getting Android 5.1 Lollipop, here’s the OTA file



Android 5.1 is finally headed to the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play edition, as many of you have reported being able to grab the upgrade over-the-air. Android 5.1 doesn’t house a significant bundle of new features on the surface, though the extent of the bugs fixed (read: a metric crap-ton) is likely incentive enough to grab this one as soon as you can.

Can’t grab the upgrade OTA for whatever reason? Thankfully the OTA download file is already available right here. Simply download it, rename it to, and either use ADB to flash it or drop it onto the root of your device’s storage as “” and flash it through recovery.

This file is meant to take you from LRX21P.L004 to LMY47O.L002, so be sure you’re on the right firmware before attempting to flash it. Not comfortable doing it yourself? Be patient as the OTA is likely to be on its way before this batch of Lollipop gets too stale.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Umm, where is 5.1 for the Nexus 9?

    Fast updates my ass. This Nexus tab has been nothing but rubbish since I got it. It can’t even keep a single webpage stored into ram and has to reload the page if I go to another app for just a second. I only bought this because I was told Nexus devices were first in line to get updates directly from Google, yet here I am, 6 months after launch and I’m still on 5.0.1. Even carrier branded phones are getting 5.0.2 pushed out to them.

    Never buying an Android tab again. Google are crap at updates and Android’s fragmentation is out of control. This isn’t even a fast tab and was hyped up as being fast and smooth because it’s a Nexus. Will go back to the iPad and pick up the Air 3 or whatever is released this year.

  2. Is the Nexus 7 2013 the last great 7″ tablet?
