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…)
If you own a Nexus phone that is scheduled to receive the update to Android 7.0 Nougat, the time is now. Google has posted factory images and the OTA .zip files for those unwilling to wait for an over-the-air update to pop-up.
As of right now, we have Android 7.0 Nougat files for the Pixel C (NRD90M), Nexus 9 WiFi (NRD90M), and Nexus Player (NRD90M).
In case you hadn’t noticed something in common with the missing devices (Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6), look at the processor – Qualcomm. We’ll update this post when those go live.
Google is pushing out August’s Android security update to Nexus devices today and has done so by already publishing both factory image and OTA .zip files. They also provided the typical security bulletin as well.
As of right now, we have Android 6.0.1 files for the Pixel C (MXC89L), Nexus 6P (MTC20F), Nexus 5X (MTC20F), Nexus 5 (MOB30Y), Nexus 6 (MMB30R,MOB30W), Nexus 7 2013 (MOB30X, MMB30S), Nexus 9 (MOB30W), and Nexus Player (MOB30W).
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…)
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…)
