Hey Guys,

Wanna thank all the beta testers and everyone involved, we are now in the final phase of Lollipop release. The software has been submitted to Google for approval today, and if all goes well the rollout should happen soon.

Here is a little peek into what is going on under the hood. At YU, quality is a key focus and our partner, Cyanogen is equally committed to provide a robust software. We both work hard to ensure that the awesome new features are stable enough to provide the best user experience. However, with Lollipop it became a little more stringent and longer. Every set of errors took us back a few steps costing us few more days for the rollout.

Now in the final stage, we cannot wait ourselves to ship it fast. We will keep you posted on the update.

Fingers crossed!!


So , all Yureka users can assume , that Yureka is going to updated to 5.0 Lollipop ( cm12 ) withing this or next week  !
