A number of devices are now able to get a taste of Android 5.1 Lollipop, thanks to new custom firmwares.

Recently, the latest Android v5.1 Lollipop-based custom ROM has been rolled out for the LG G3, International Business Times reported. The software is developed by Life Walker, based on the CyanogenMod CM12.1 series.

The firmware may only be installed, specifically, among LG G3 D855 models. For those who may not know, testing specific builds on unintended devices might result to bricking.

While flashing, battery life is suggested at 80%, and as usual, backing up of files is recommended. The firmware may be downloaded here.

Meanwhile, a nightly version of the CM12.1 custom ROM has also been made available for the Motorola Moto E (Condor), based on AOSP (Android Open Source Project) 5.1 Lollipop. In another article, IBT took note of its features, including bug fixes, new applications and customizations such as sound alerts and optional LED colors for email.

Nightlies, however, are unstable versions that most certainly present unwanted issues. The firmware is specially built for the first-generation Moto E, IBT said, and it may be downloaded here.

The CyanogenMod team is also credited for the release of the Android 5.1 custom update via BlissPop ROM, The Android Soul noted, built for the OnePlus One.

According to the outlet, this build is one of the most highly customizable ROMs that may be installed in the handset, providing stock UI experience and more customization options.

Several personalization options include CM12 Theme Engine, Status Bar and Notification Drawer, among others. The build may be downloaded here.

Meanwhile, Google has made the official factory image file (LMY47O) of Android 5.1 Lollipop available for the Nexus 4. As told by Android Geeks, the release arrived shortly after the rollout of OTA files.

While the Android 5.1 LMY47O factory image file may be flashed over any custom ROM, the outlet wrote that all data, quite apparently, will be deleted. The file may be downloaded here.

Finally, another AOSP-based Android 5.1 custom firmware is out for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (GT-N7105) 6G-LTE model, IBT cited. The build is created by senior XDA Developer forum member wilson3q.

The firmware includes bug fixes, enhancements, LMK minfree tweaks, enabled multi-user and removal of all kernel debugging stuffs. For a weight of 244.9 MB, the file may be downloaded here.

Flashing custom firmwares require successful completion of very technical procedures that are best exercised with caution.
