How to Install Android 5.0 Lollipop in Galaxy Nexus

We have included the instructions from the XDAdeveloper forum below. install at your own risk, all credit to MWisBest:


How-To1st FML Flash:


1. Do a backup in recovery and (optionally) backup apps with Titanium Backup or something similar.

2. Factory Reset in recovery (wipe data (NOT /SDCARD THOUGH), dalvik-cache, cache)

3. Wipe /system in recovery.

4. Flash ROM in recovery.

5. Flash GApps in recovery.

6. Reboot, and be patient. First boot takes a while.

Subsequent FML Flashes, unless otherwise instructed:


1. Do a backup in recovery and (optionally) backup apps with Titanium Backup or something similar.

2. Wipe /system, cache, and dalvik-cache in recovery.

3. Flash ROM in recovery.

4. Flash GApps in recovery.

5. Reboot, and be patient. First boot takes a while.

NOTE: You can probably get away with just wiping the 2 caches without wiping /system, however if any issues occur please re-test with a /system wipe.

Flashing the TWRP .img:

For this you can either use fastboot or the Flashify app, however I'm not going to delve into the details of that as it's really more deserving of a separate thread to fully explain.

Latest Build





LOLLIPOP INFO:

These builds are very early! They aren't daily-driver-stable, but they are progressing extremely fast. They don't include the usual FML optimizations either, but they are surprisingly snappy already...


They are EXTREMELY MINIMAL! Not even SetupWizard is included. I used the PA GApps, "Nano", as the base for it.

Known Issues:
- EXT4 ONLY CURRENTLY! F2FS will be OK for the next build though!

- Stock Camera app isn't working yet. Aftermarket ones, such as Camera ZOOM FX, might work however.

- Mobile data and MMS, isn't working on (at least) the LTE Galaxy Nexuses, however phone calls and text messages should be OK.

- Various other things I'm sure are lurking.
