Google started pushing out the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop on the Nexus lineup. The update brings a host of changes as well as bug fixes that were reported in the previous versions and hopefully aren’t there anymore. Like stated previously, the update only brings some incremental changes and there isn’t any major change. However, if you are still willing to upgrade manually rather than waiting for the OTA, you’re at the right place. Let’s take a look at how to update your Nexus 10 to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

  • Nexus 10 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop img can be downloaded from here.

  3. Extract the zip file you downloaded earlier, once extracted; go to the destination and copy all files from mantaray-LMY47D and paste them in your fastboot directory that should be platform-tools in fastboot directory.
