    Google announced that it would begin rolling out the latest version of Android today! This update will bring Nexus devices to Android 5.1! There are plenty of changes as was mentioned by @pc747 earlier this evening. Google has already started rolling out the factory images for several devices which can be flashed manually. So far images are available for Nexus 5, Nexus 10, and the original Nexus 7. Google's directions state that you will need your bootloader unlocked, then you will just run the flash-all.bat script to flash the update. Google has not been building the script correctly so far in Lollipop and the flash-all.bat normally does not work. You can flash the individual parts of the image after unzipping in fastboot alternatively. Grab the file for your device from the link below.
