From the looks of things over at Android HQ the downloads for the new Preview are live...

According to Google this is a build that reflects the final Android L API's (v21) but the system image is not the FINAL build.

Download Links
Nexus 5 (Hammerhead) - http://storage.googleapis.com/androiddevelopers/finalpreview/hammerhead-lpx13d-preview-f7596f51.tgz
Nexus 7 (Razor) - http://storage.googleapis.com/androiddevelopers/finalpreview/razor-lpx13d-preview-ae4f461f.tgz

Root Access
From the sounds of it, root has been achieved through the means of a modified boot.img. Here is the link -thanks @sykopompos
An alternative method is a flashable zip file. You can download from this post.

How to Install
If you are not familiar with how to use fastboot then I would advise against flashing this build. For a Google created tutorial of how to flash please visit the following link.

Exchange/ActiveSync Fix
Note: Exchange accounts seem to be non-working out of the box. If you want to enable exchange you must install the following apk and then install the email app from the play store. Exchange/corporate will then show up and can sync properly.

Build LPX13D Screenshots
I took the liberty of snapping a few screen-shots of the new build (more to come):

I am wondering, is it possible to install the image but keep your apps/homescreen/settings? I flashed some roms before, so fastboot is no stranger, but never knew if that was possible :)

This is preview build, you can't upgrade (you have to clean install) and you will have to reinstall everything to be in the final version.
