If you're trying to flash your Nexus 5, 7, or 10 to Android 5.0 now that the factory images are out, there's nothing more infuriating than running into an error in the process. The most common error we're seeing today as part of the flashing process is the dreaded "missing system.img" dialog, which aborts the update process on the target device.

The reason this happens is because the flash-all script that comes in the image package, which most of you are undoubtedly trying to use, is attempting to flash the .img files in the update using the 'fastboot update' method, which appears to be failing for some reason for some users.

It's the moment you've been waiting for. Google just announced the Nexus devices are getting OTA updates to 5.0, and now the full system images have been posted on the Google Developers site. With these files, you can flash your device back to stock even after you've done unspeakable things to it.

Can you feel it? It's in the air. Of course I'm referring to the impending arrival of Android 5.0 on Nexus devices. It's starting now with a full jump to Lollipop for devices that are currently on KitKat, and a small bug fix update for new devices like the Nexus 9.

Sometimes late nights lead to interesting tips finding their way into our inbox. Tonight was just such a night. If you've been waiting to get a taste of Lollipop on your Nexus 7 2012, you're in luck. We just happen to have signed factory images for Google's original 7" tablet. The build is LRX21P, which lines up with builds we've seen on the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player (LRX21L and LRX21M respectively).

Word has hit the street that the Asus ZenWatch will launch in the US on November 9th. Two days from now shoppers reportedly will be able to pick one up from Best Buy for $199.99, with Play Store availability coming at some point after.

The ZenWatch is a peculiar Wear device. It's square, but unlike the LG G Watch or the Samsung Gear Live, it tries to look more like a traditional accessory than a tech gadget.

When Google launched the Nexus Player, it was listed with a lengthy 3-4 week shipping window, but it seems that Mountain View has gotten its ducks in a row sooner than that. We've gotten multiple tips that Nexus Players and controllers are on their way to buyers.

This one's for you developer-types. Google has just pushed the Android 5.0 kernel sources for the Nexus 9 and Nexus Player. Head over to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and poke around at your leisure. For non developers: a thing happened that is good, but it's not something you personally need to worry your pretty little head over.

Look, we know most of you are probably more eager to see Lollipop software images for devices that you actually have instead of the ones that have just been released. But Google seems to be taking its sweet time with those, so in the meantime, we've got the software image and binary drivers for the Nexus Player. That's nice, right? Hello? Anyone reading this?

Actually, the software for the Nexus Player will be very important for the future of Google's Android TV platform - this is the showcase device for the next generation of Google-powered set-top boxes, for better or worse.

Android TV, and by association Nexus Player, are the evolution of Chromecast. It essentially eliminates the need to use a middleman device like a phone or tablet if the user chooses, and allows them to interface directly with the device and TV in many cases. While it still retains all the functionality of Chromecast, a dedicated box allows for a much more robust and feature-rich system, as well as more room for future enhancements.

You could have pre-ordered a Nexus 9 or a Nexus Player two weeks ago, and I have no doubt that many of you did. But for everyone taking the wait-and-see approach, the two devices are both now available for purchase from the Play Store.
