Stock Android 5.1 Lollipop ROM Released on XDA-Developers

We all thought that the XDA-Developers community was creative before, but they outdid themselves this time. Well-known community member and recognized developer scrosler has recently revealed a stock Android 5.1 Lollipop ROM which can be flashed onto any device, offering us a preview of Google’s next OS update, taken from the image itself.
The biggest perk of the Android operating system is by far its flexibility and amazing community. You don’t see software updates being released just like that by the community before they actually roll out on devices anywhere else. The main attraction of this Android 5.1 Lollipop ROM is that it offers a perfect stock experience, it’s also powered by SuperSU and it has Busybox with init.d support. Other features include a persistent ADB, no added features or mods, as well as a decrypted boot.img.

How much more awesome could the community be? Well, the whole thing is available to download for free. A clean ROM should be coming soon given that this neat piece of software was just recently released, and it’s very exciting. Now you can see what Android 5.1 has to offer in terms of stability, features, and more. All you have to do is flash this ROM the same way you would install any other one, and you’re good to go.

As always, be careful when installing or flashing ROMs, and make sure that your bootloader is updated before you give it a shot. Users have currently given some really positive feedback based on their experience with this ROM, which leads us to believe that Android 5.1 Lollipop is a great update and we can’t wait for it to arrive on our devices. You can check out the comments in the official XDA-Developers thread which we have linked to below, and that’s the same place where you can also find a download link. As for the official release date for Android 5.1 Lollipop – we don’t have it yet.

Check out the thread and the ROM, and give it a try yourself if you’re feeling up to it. If you do test it out, let us know what you think.
