Android 7.1.1 kernel source now available for Moto G4 Play

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

Motorola's flagship devices still get updates relatively quickly, but its budget phones lag behind quite a bit. For example, the Verizon Moto G4 Play was just updated from Android 6.0 to 7.1.1 earlier this month, shortly after the international variants received it. Now Motorola has released the kernel source code for the G4 Play's Nougat update.

The kernel source for 'Harpia' (the G4 Play's codename) was published earlier today on GitHub.

Lenovo is one of the few major Android manufacturers still invested in tablets, and the company's 'Tab 4' lineup has been highly anticipated by fans. Both 10.1-inch and 8-inch models have shown up for pre-order online, with the former costing $129 and the latter costing $179.

Both tablets have Snapdragon 425 processors, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot. They both ship with Android 7.1 out of the box, but considering Lenovo's track record, don't expect fast updates.

June Nexus/Pixel factory images and OTA files are now available for download, includes fix for Pixel freezing

Monday, June 5th, 2017

Google is rolling out new Android builds for its devices today, but it'll take a few days for the OTA to reach your device the old-fashioned way. If you want, the system images and OTA files are already available for sideloading. Pixel owners who have been experiencing freezes might not want to wait. Google says this update should address that problem.

Again, there are several builds for Pixel devices depending on the carrier it's being used on.

Motorola rolling out Android 7.1.1 to the Moto Z Play

Sunday, June 4th, 2017

Now that Android O is on the horizon, it seems like many phone manufacturers have opted to completely ignore Android 7.1. A few devices have been updated, such as the OnePlus 3/3T and Nextbit Robin, but not many.  Now it seems the Moto Z Play has become Motorola's first phone (in the US, at least) to get Android 7.1.

In addition to Android 7.1, the update also includes Duo for video calling and "updates the Moto Mods platform to the version 2.0." The June 1st security level is also included.

Nextbit Robin is being updated to Android 7.1.1

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

The Nextbit Robin was a good value when it was released, and an even greater value for those who have bought it on sale recently. Many, including myself, didn't expect to see major software updates once Nextbit was purchased by Razer, but the phone is surprisingly now receiving an update to Android 7.1.1.

Previously, the Robin was running Android 7.0 Nougat, which came to the phone in March. Unfortunately, the update only includes the April 1st patch level. If you're curious, you can read about some of the improvements in 7.1 here.
