Google just posted a whole bunch of new factory images for its line of Nexus devices, likely as November’s monthly security update (Yep, here are the details.). We have both Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop images, depending on the device, of course. (more…)
Last Monday, Google told us that its Nexus 5X would begin shipping before following up the news with the public posting of the phone’s first handful of Android 6.0 Marshmallow factory images. Today, we have our first Nexus 6P factory images, but unfortunately, we still don’t know when these bad boys are officially shipping. I would like to believe that these new images are a sign that things are about to get fully under way, but this is Google and they are their own breed of company. (more…)
I’m now wondering if I’m about to get an update on my review unit, since it’s running MDB08G. So many builds. (more…)
Yesterday, T-Mobile told us to expect monthly security updates for Nexus devices including the Nexus 4, 5, 6, 7 (2013), 9, and 10. Today, Google posted the factory images for each as build LMY48M.
Keep in mind that the T-Mobile Nexus 6 will receive a different update as build LYZ28K, so if you are running a Nexus 6 on T-Mo, don’t flash these LMY48M images. (more…)
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.
