This morning, Google kicked off the release of April’s security patch by pushing out factory images of the update for supported Nexus devices. As of right now, we are seeing new images for the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus Player, Nexus 9 (WiFi and LTE), Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013, WiFi and LTE), and Nexus 10. (more…)
The first update for the Android N preview is now available. For now, the update is available through new factory images, but should be rolling out over-the-air (OTA) before long, if it isn’t already, I would imagine.
The updates are showing up for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P as build NPC56W, while the Nexus 9 is getting NPC56X. The rest of the Nexus line-up isn’t seeing new files just yet. (more…)
As you now know, Google surprised the hell out of us this morning with the announcement of the Android N Developer Preview. We are still two months from Google I/O, but Google is clearly ready for developers to start diving into this latest build of Android.
Because we know that so many of you are going to flash this, even if it is a developer preview that no one recommends you flash to a daily device, we thought we’d give you the tools to do so. Below, you’ll find the link to the factory images for the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus 9 LTE, Nexus Player, and Pixel C, along with instructions on how to flash them.
Good luck! (more…)
This month’s Android security update will start rolling out shortly, now that factory images for the update have been posted by Google. At this time,
the Nexus 6P is missing a new image, but we have files for the Pixel C (MXC14G), Nexus 5X (MMB29V and MHC19J), Nexus 6 (MMB29V), Nexus Player (MMB29V), Nexus 9 (MMB29V), Nexus 5 (MMB29V), Nexus 7 (2013, MMB29V), and Nexus 10 (LMY49H). (more…)
It’s February, so that means it is time for Google to push out this month’s security update to Nexus devices. Already this morning, we are seeing factory images posted for the Pixel C, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus Player, Nexus 9 (WiFi and LTE), Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013, WiFi and Mobile), and Nexus 10.

To kick off CES week, though this isn’t related to CES at all, Google has posted the January security update for its Nexus line-up as factory images of Android 6.0.1. This is still 6.0.1, but there are a variety of build numbers out there depending on the device. (more…)
Now that the Pixel C, Google’s high-end non-Nexus tablet, is available, we were wondering how exactly the search giant would handle updates for it. Would they arrive similarly to the Nexus line, which means factory images accompany over-the-air files? To answer one part of that question – yes, we are getting factory images. (more…)
Earlier this morning, Google announced that Android 6.0.1 would begin rolling out to Nexus devices with a whole bunch of emoji. Moments ago, they followed up that announcement by posting up factory images of Android 6.0.1 for the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus Player, Nexus 9 (LTE and WiFi), Nexus 5, and Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi and LTE.
