Over the last few days, Moto G GPe, HTC One M8 GPe, and LG G Pad 8.3 GPe have received the Android 5.1 updates and now, the search giant has rolled-out the same update for Nexus 7 (2012) 3G model and Sony Z Ultra GPe.
The update is now available over-the-air and will reach these two devices over the coming days. If you don’t like waiting, you can always go to Settings > About Phone > Software update to manually check for the update. Also, here are the Android 5.1 OTA ZIP files links for the Z Ultra GPe and Nexus 7 (2012) 3G, if you want, you can sideload these ZIP files using ADB.
