Sprint has started rolling out the update to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop for the LG Nexus 5 units that it’s sold.

If you have a Sprint LG Nexus 5, it should soon notify you that an update is available to download and install, if it hasn’t done so already.

If you’ve yet to receive any notifications and would like to try to help the update along, you can manually check for the software by tapping: Settings > About phone > System updates > Check for update.

If an update is available, follow the prompts to download and install the new software. If not, you’ve waited this long, a few more days probably won’t kill you.

After performing the installation procedure your phone will be running Android 5.1.1, software version LMY48B.

Around a month ago, we heard that Google’s Nexus smartphones may start receiving Android 5.1 update soon. And here we are today, when Google has started pushing the Android 5.1 update to Nexus devices (specifically the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10).

According to AndroidCentral, the new update is build LMY47D, and it brings support for multiple SIMs and cross-platform HD Voice, along with Device Protection which ties your Android device to your Google account and prevents unwanted access to your device even if it goes through a factory reset. Additionally, there are some tweaks to quick settings for easier control over Bluetooth and WiFi network switching.
