You know how we often spend days hunting down the over-the-air (OTA) .zip files for Nexus updates to try and get you updates faster than Google sends them? We may not need to do that any longer because Google started posting the files today. I’m not kidding – the .zip OTA files are now up on the Google Developers site, right next to the factory images. (more…)
Over-the-air (OTA) zip download links to LMY48M for Nexus devices are hitting the web, in case you don’t want to mess with flashing factory images, wiping all of your data in the process. For now, we have links to the update for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi, with more sure to be on the way shortly.
As we continue to receive new file URLs that are direct downloads from Google, we will continue to update this post. (more…)
Update 8/13: We now have all available files below.
Last week, Google released factory images for most of its Nexus devices that were supposed to address Stagefright vulnerabilities. While those images are there for the flashing and will get you all patched up, we know that many of you like to wait for over-the-air (OTA) updates to hit your devices. If you are still waiting for those and are willing to sideload the updates instead, we are compiling them in a list below.
Before long, we should have .zip files for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi, Nexus 9 WiFi and LTE, and Nexus 10.
We will continue to update this post as we have more URLs. (more…)
Earlier this morning, we told you that Google would be pushing updates to its Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 phones in an attempt to patch the Stagefright flaw that became public knowledge a week ago. As it turns out, Google will actually begin pushing updates to the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7, Nexus 9, and Nexus 10 today, updates that are the first in an on-going monthly security update package that was just announced.

Update July 2: Added Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi update to LMY48G.

More will arrive soon (Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 4, and Nexus 9), so we are starting to compile a list of them all below. We know that many of you like to sideload updates rather than wait for them to hit your device – feel free to bookmark this one. (more…)
