Google posted the Android 7.1.1 factory image and OTA files for the Nexus 6 yesterday. That’s news because it was the last remaining device supposed to see 7.1.1 without those files. Google must have fixed whatever final bugs were holding the update back. (more…)
Google is ready to release November’s Android security update today and has kicked off the rollout by posting factory images and OTA .zip files. We are seeing both 7.1 and 7.0 files for Pixel and Nexus devices. (more…)
Ever since Google introduced the Pixel and Pixel XL, we have been wondering how the update situation would work. Would Google just push over-the-air updates as they were ready or would they treat them similarly to Nexus phones by issuing factory image and OTA .zip files. I think we now know the answer – Google is giving us the files we want. (more…)
Google just posted the Android 7.1.1 Developer Preview files for the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Pixel C! The timing is perfect, since the Pixel and Pixel XL are arriving in Verizon stores as early as tomorrow with 7.1. Google did tell us to expect it before the end of October, so they nailed that timeline as well. (more…)
Google is pushing out October’s Android security update (
at least we’re assuming that’s what this is; Edit: Yep, it is!) to Nexus devices today and has done so by already publishing both factory image and OTA .zip files. This is the second security patch for Nougat and that means new Android 7.0 builds for a few devices. The security bulletin should be up soon as well (Edit: It is!). (more…)
Google is pushing out September’s Android security update to Nexus devices today and has done so by already publishing both factory image and OTA .zip files. This is the first security patch for Nougat and that means new Android 7.0 builds for a few devices. They also provided the typical security bulletin as well. (more…)
The first Android 7.0 Nougat batch of factory images and OTA .zip files for Nexus devices arrived earlier in the week, but the newest phones of the group didn’t see the love out of the gate. We’re talking about the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Nexus 6, all of which also happen to be Qualcomm-powered devices. That’s not me laying blame, it’s just a pointed observation about current and previous factory image releases related to Qualcomm devices.
Either way, the Nexus 5X files are now available for those who need them. The build is the same as the builds we saw earlier in the week – NRD90M.
Go get em! (more…)
