    +Qbking77 (Tim Schofield) I watched this video first when I wanted to install Android 5.0 Lollipop but I didn't understand anything and I had to wait OTA update. But this time I got it and your video helped me to update my Nexus 5 to Android Lollipop 5.1. You did an amazing job. Thank you so much! Greetings from Turkey!
