Hey, friends, it’s March Pixel update time!
To no one’s surprise, we have a fresh Android update to start a new month, this time with the March 2021 Android security patch. We still have a number of supported Google phones at the moment, so if you own a Pixel 5, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4/4 XL, Pixel 3a/3a XL, or Pixel 3/3 XL, you should have an update available momentarily if you don’t feel like flashing a factory image or OTA file.
Currently, we are seeing new 11.0.0 files for Pixel 5 (RQ2A.210305.006, RQ2A.210305.007), Pixel 4a 5G (RQ2A.210305.006, RQ2A.210305.007), Pixel 4a (RQ2A.210305.006, RQ2A.210305.007), Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL (RQ2A.210305.006), Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL (RQ2A.210305.006), and Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (RQ2A.210305.006).
The specifics on build numbers:
Pixel 3 (XL): RQ2A.210305.006
Pixel 3a (XL): RQ2A.210305.006
Pixel 4 (XL): RQ2A.210305.006
