This OTA is rather small as it is only a bump from 5.0.1 and it brings the device to build number LRX22L. The update is 23MB in size and there are no big changes except for some bug fixes. You can get the update from the source link below. Bear in mind, you need a stock version to run on your device in order to flash 5.0.2.

LG G3 from T Mobile finally getting Android 5.0.1 update

LG G3 from T Mobile is getting its own Lollipop update as soon as April 7th. A few weeks after AT&T and Sprint’s G3s got their well-deserved update, T Mobile decided it’s time they hop on the Android 5.0 wagon. If you want the 5.0.1 update, you’ll have to wait for a little longer and you will need LG’s terrible update software as well.

After you install the device management tool, you can plug your smartphone in and go into USB debugging mode. The software should then detect your phone and let you install a USB driver if a connection is not viable. Then the update should be visible and you will be prompted to download or flash.

In order for the update to work, your device must be stock. Your data should be safe, but just in case, back up the important stuff.

You can check the update docs on T Mobile if you want.

HTC One M7 and M8 Google Edition update to Android 5.0.1

HTC One M7 and M8 Google Edition recently received their Android 5.0.1 OTA update and, if you haven’t received yours yet, you should ask yourself if your settings are right and if you need to manually update. If you are the owner of a pure AOSP M7 from last year or M8 from this year, your phone should be getting Lollipop any second now. The newest edition too!

These devices, along with a Sony Google edition, are getting the small 0.1 update sooner than other Nexus devices are getting their Lollipop rollout. Among the notable missing Google Edition devices that have not yet received the update you will find Samsung Galaxy S4 and Moto G.

If you can’t see the update on your HTC One immediately, you should check any user forum for good-guy owners who extracted the OTA ZIP file which will allow you to flash it manually with ADB. If you trust us enough, you can find the ZIP for HTC One M7 HERE and the ZIP for HTC One M8 HERE! Happy flashing!
