OnePlus makes first system image (v4.7.4) for OnePlus 5T available for download

Monday, December 11th, 2017

The OnePlus 5T is now landing on doorsteps across the globe, and most users will find that it has an OTA update available when they power it on. OxygenOS v4.7.4 rolled out last week, but now a system image of that version is also available for download. OnePlus even has full instructions for flashing the update.

Unlike an OTA file, the system image contains everything you need to get your device on the stock firmware even if it's running something else.

The ‘Check for update’ button on Pixel/Nexus devices still isn’t pulling the latest OTAs as promised, but it’ll be fixed in 2018

Friday, December 8th, 2017

There was much celebration in the Android Police virtual HQ earlier this year when Googler Elliott Hughes revealed that the much-maligned "Check for update" button was getting an overhaul. After so many pointless presses, this button would finally do something on Pixel and Nexus devices. If there was an update available, the button would download it. However, this feature still isn't working. According to Hughes, the bug that broke this feature will be fixed in early 2018.

OnePlus 5T OxygenOS 4.7.4 OTA rolling out now with camera improvements and bugfixes

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

The OnePlus 5T was only launched a few weeks ago, and already it's breaking all the company's sales records. It might be breaking update records, too, as today marks the 2nd update to the device in less than a month. OxygenOS 4.7.4 is rolling out to the company's latest flagship as we speak, bringing with it camera improvements, bugfixes, and piles of optimizations. 

 

The update to 4.7.4 doesn't include any increase in monthly security patch level, it's still just October and it's still just based on Android Nougat 7.1.1.

Oreo will be rolling out to Android Wear starting today

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

Android Wear 2.0, deep down inside, is based on Nougat 7.0. A bit over a month ago the platform saw news of a coming update to Oreo in the form of a beta program, originally only available for the LG Watch Sport. We presume that beta is now over, because Android Oreo is rolling out to Wear devices starting today.

This news comes according to a post made on Google+ by Hoi Lam, Wearables Developer Advocate at Google, in the Android Wear Developers community.

[Update: More info] OnePlus confirms it won’t have Project Treble on any current devices, including the OnePlus 5T

Wednesday, December 6th, 2017

Android updates have never been very fast or consistent, but Google took some steps to improve the process several months ago. That's when it announced Project Treble, a feature of Android Oreo and later that makes OTAs modular. Devices that launch with Oreo will support Treble, but those updated to Oreo won't—at least mostly. OnePlus has confirmed on its forums that Treble won't be part of any current devices, including the new OnePlus 5T.

Android 8.1 OTA files and factory images are now live

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Anxiously waiting for 8.1 to land? It would appear that today is the day. Google has just released both the OTA files for sideloading 8.1 and the requisite factory images. Intrepid Android enthusiasts can flash the update, though it is worth noting that the OTA files aren't currently working when sideloading from DP2 on at least one device. 

So far the OTA for 8.1 itself doesn't appear to be rolling out.

[Update: Instructions] BLU issues software fix for faulty Life One X2 update that left owners with unusable phones

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

Around a week ago, BLU issued a broken software update for its Life One X2 phone. In at least some cases, users who applied the update were locked out of their phones. Late this afternoon, BLU's official Twitter account—which, much to the chagrin of affected users, was silent on the subject for almost a week—issued a statement that the problem had been fixed via a new update.
