Less than one week afterÂ we spotted out first mention of Android 5.1.1, Nexus Player owners can now move up to the still-unannounced update.
The Android 5.1.1 factory image for the Nexus Player is now live on Googleâ€™s developer website. The update will bump your Android TV device up to build LMY47V, which is a smidge different than the LMY47W and LMY47S builds that were paired with the Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 9 last week.
If you absolutely have to be on Android 5.1.1 now, you can flash this factory image to your Nexus Player, but youâ€™ll wipe your deviceâ€™s data in the process. Of course, itâ€™s possible that the official OTA will begin rolling out soon now that the factory image is live, so you could just wait for that. Hopefully weâ€™ll hear something about Android 5.1.1 from Google soon.
