    The LMY47I factory images were just posted to Google for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6. The bootloader and the radio both appear to be the same (radio is .95R from LMY47D and LMY47M) but I have yet to flash any of it. If you guys see/know of any changes from other builds, I certainly am curious. I am mostly interested to see if the boot.img has changed at all as I am unencrypted and would prefer to stay that way.

    Good catch.

    I don't care too much if I am encrypted. It has its uses.

    I would like to know what it does change.

    I don't use any sort of passcode or anything on my lockscreen so I wasn't utilizing the encryption anyways - atleast from my understanding of what encryption actually does.

    I believe you may have encryption confused with forcing you to lock your screen.

    What they are referring to when they say encryption is encryption of the data on the device. It makes your data unreadable. It is highly recommended you use a lockscreen pin, trace or password.

    I know what encryption is - I just read in multiple places that if you don't actually use any sort of passcode to lock your device (I just use the standard swipe to unlock) that the only thing encryption accomplished was to slow down your read/write speeds.

    From what I read - you don't actually get the "benefits" of the encryption if you don't protect/lock your phone at all.

    Okay. I must have misunderstood what you were saying.

    This is a good step, though it has been there forever. Encryption isn't likely to come on as default. They already back peddled on the N6 coming out with with encryption on by default. From what I read not all of them are encrypted. I could be mistaken.

    Flashed the system and radio image, didn't have the heart to do another full wipe. "Android is upgrading.., 143 of 166"

    We'll see what is what.

    I know exactly how that feels. I keep a lot of data on my phone, so backing it up can be a PITA. Then doing the TiBu, then the NANDroid backup. But going from major version to major version it is a must. Small ones like these are usually fine.

    Yep, I just did two of them for the other two factory images they posted going from 5.0 to 5.1. I feel like I am fine now. Re-rooted using TWRP, up and running.

    Would you mind taking a screenshot of About Phone and posting it Sydman?

    Now this could be placebo effect, but it feels a lot snappier. Not seeing screen or app lag yet.
