Android N Developer Preview 5 Now Available! The Final Preview! (Updated)

Android N Developer Preview 5 just got posted and is available for the flashing! As of right now, it looks like all supported devices are getting Android build NPD90G. Note that this is the final developer preview before the stable version rolls out “later this summer.”

Again, the supported devices include the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9 (WiFi and LTE), Nexus Player, Pixel C, and the General Mobile 4G (Android One) device.

We’re still looking through the changes and will update this post.  (more…)

First Android N Preview Update is Available

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…)

Download: Android N Developer Preview Factory Images (1st Preview)

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…)
