Xubuntu adb sideload Lollipop onto Nexus 5

As I was tired of waiting on the OTA to download directly to my phone, I decided to sideload it myself. Luckily, sideloading does not require root or an unlocked bootloader.

I followed this guide by Droid Life, but had to preface all adb commands with sudo as I was running it from my linux box. http://www.droid-life.com/2013/02/12/guide-how-to-use-adb-sideload-to-update-a-nexus-without-root-or-custom-recovery/
