Last night, Google posted new image files of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow Preview 3 for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Nexus Player as build MPA44I. We aren’t sure why the sudden update was released, but they must have found something needing immediate attention.
The preview build was MPA44G. (more…)
Last week, shortly after Google announced a new monthly update schedule of security patches for Nexus devices, the search giant posted factory images that contained Stagefright patches. The initial set of patches dropped in as Android build LMY48I, which was the proper build almost all of the Nexus devices outside of non-T-Mobile and non-Project Fi Nexus 6s. Last night, Google posted the specific factory image for the Nexus 6 on T-Mobile as build LYZ28J. (more…)
Moments after pushing Android 5.1.1 “LMY48I” to AOSP, Google went ahead and made factory images of the new build available as well. We are currently seeing factory images for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi, Nexus 9 WiFi and LTE, and Nexus 10.
As a reminder, this update patches the Stagefright vulnerabilities made public last week and is a part of Google’s new monthly security update program. (more…)
Google just posted Android 5.1.1_r6 to AOSP this morning as build LMY48G. Shortly after that happened, they posted a factory image of LMY48G for the Nexus 7 (2013).
This new version is likely just a bug fixer, but it could also mean another round of updates for all of our favorite Nexus devices. (more…)
The Android 5.1.1 factory image for the Nexus 6 on Sprint and US Cellular is now available for download and flashing. (more…)
The WiFi Calling update for Nexus 6s running on T-Mobile that began rolling out over the weekend now has a factory image and OTA .zip file from Google as build LYZ28E. This is still Android 5.1.1, of course, but the files may come in handy for those of you running your Nexus 6 on the Uncarrier’s network and have yet to receive the update. (more…)
Google posted Android 5.1.1 factory images today for the Nexus 9 LTE (LMY47X) and Nexus 5 (LMY48B), leaving the
Nexus 7 (2013) LTE, Nexus 7 (2012) mobile, Nexus 4, and Nexus 6 as the only current Nexus devices without them. I would imagine they will be here before long. Once they do show up, we’ll be sure to share them. (more…)
Moments after the OTA .zip for the Nexus 9 Android 5.1.1 update was captured, Google went ahead and posted up the factory image for it as well. So for those of you who don’t want to “adb sideload” the over-the-air file, you can now flash an entire factory image.
Here are the instructions on how to flash a Nexus factory image.
Go get it. (more…)
