Currently, the update is only available to a select number of devices, but OmniROM has promised that the roster will be expanded in time. The nature of "nightlies" means that new software builds arrive on a daily basis to allow the adventurous to experience the most up-to-date version of the software, with improvements landing thick and fast.

What is OmniROM?

OmniROM is an Android ROM which offers a similar experience to that of stock Android, but provides users with a greater degree of customization (such as allowing you to control how many pre installed apps — or bloatware — are included in the build).

To download the ROM, just go to the Downloads page on the OmniROM website and download the build which corresponds to your device. To flash it, follow the install instructions at the link.

    there is nothing cool about the 5.1.1 nightlies right now cept the bar customization at least on a nexus 5.
    im using multirom Omni 4.4.4 Final and Dirty Unicorn 5.1.1.

    you want to review a kickass 5.1.1 rom try out DirtyUnicorn atleast on lollipop. more options then a tree has leafs.

    as for lollipop Omni, it's gonna be a while before it becomes anything like it was on 4.x.
