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 update.zip, and either use ADB to flash it or drop it onto the root of your device’s storage as “update.zip” 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.
