Perhaps one of the most anticipated OS releases of 2014 is the Android 5.0 Lollipop. After all, the software is slated to run across a plethora of devices -- from smartphones to wearables to cars.

Since Nov. 3, Android's official blog has announced that the update began to roll-out among select devices. Last week, Google has initiated the OTA update among Nexus 5, Nexus 7 Wi-Fi (2012 and 2013) and Nexus 10 smartphones.

However, recent reports noted the existence of a bug that allegedly prevent the handsets from establishing Wi-Fi connection. According to Phone Arena, developers in possession of models Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 9 have reported unsuccessful Wi-Fi connection.

Business Insider cited the original complaint which stated that the Nexus 5 saves the Wi-Fi network upon successful entry of password; however, the device didn't connect to the source at all. Worse, the failure was said to happen 100% of the time. The outlet observed that most users encountering the similar problem ran official build LRX210, a final software version released by Google.

On the other hand, International Business Times noted in an updated report that other Nexus 5 users expressed having no Wi-Fi problems. Yet others claimed losing data during the update's installation.

The outlet added that some more owners reported not being able to complete the update's installation process. A certain "missing system.img" error prompt was noted to appear. Android Police provides instructions on how to solve the problem here.

This isn't the first time Android 5.0 Lollipop has encountered bug issues. Previously, we took note of a battery-draining bug reported by Nexus 5 owners who ran the Android 5.0 Lollipop Developer Preview.

The incident has been reported several times in the Android Developer Preview site. The problem was addressed shortly and announced as resolved by Android senior developer Trevor Johns.

Android 5.0 Lollipop is shipping with Motorola's Nexus 6 and HTC's Nexus 9. Motorola devices slated to receive the update include the Moto X (1st and 2nd Gen.), Moto G (1st and 2nd Gen.), Moto G 4G-LTE, Moto E, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini.

In another report, Business Insider wrote that the HTC One M8 and HTC One M7 are expected to get Lollipop as well. Reportedly, Samsung's Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4 and LG's G2 will also be receiving the update.

Lollipop is definitely coming to LG's G3, Google Play Edition devices and Nvidia's Shield Tablet. It is also the likely mobile OS for Samsung's rumored "Project Zero," none other than the upcoming S-line flagship Galaxy S6.

Is your device sporting the new Android 5.0 Lollipop? What do you think about Android's sweetest treat yet? We'd love to hear from you!
