Since the official release of the Android 5.0 Lollipop, Google received many bug reports regarding issues with battery drain, instability and other bugs. One of the most critical bugs, is a Wi-Fi issue that disables Cisco Corporate Connection in Lollipop, whereby the device will not connect to Cisco WiFi access points running WPA2 with AES encryption.


Many users who already updated their devices to Android 5.0 Lollipop reported that their devices are unstable, beside some other minor issues that cannot be fixed with rooting or custom ROMs. Users hope that Google release a Hotfix to address all these bugs very soon.
