Google’s November system images and OTA files for Nexus and Pixel devices are (mostly) live

Monday, November 6th, 2017

The month is getting underway, and that means it's time for Google to issue its monthly raft of Pixel and Nexus updates. The updates will filter down to phones in the next day or so, but the system images and OTA files for most devices are available now if you want to sideload. There's not a ton new here, but as this is a November patch level, you should have protection from the KRACK vulnerability.

Google announces Android 8.1 developer preview, final release planned for December

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

Google launched the new Pixel phones with Android 8.0, which is what last year's Pixel's have been running since the update. A new version of Oreo is on the way, though, and you can try it right now. Google has launched a developer preview for Android 8.1. As usual, it's supported on recent Google devices and can be installed in two ways.

The system images are available for download now, but that requires an unlocked bootloader.

Monday, October 2nd, 2017

The month of October has just begun, which means Pumpkin Spice lattes, leaves falling off trees, and marathons of The Nightmare Before Christmas on TV. It also means Google has released another Android security bulletin, just like the company does at the start of every month. As usual, OTA zips and factory images with the fixes are already available for Pixel and Nexus devices.

Guide: The best phones and tablets for LineageOS

Saturday, September 30th, 2017

The following post was written by Ryne Hager and Corbin Davenport.

The vast majority of Android device buyers don't know or care what a custom ROM is. And that's completely fine - a phone or tablet's stock ROM will be enough for 99.9% of potential users. But for the 0.1% that like to tinker, the development community surrounding a given device can drastically impact the value. Your purchase can become a much better deal if there is a wealth of custom ROM options available, extending its lifespan for possibly years (and nearly a decade for the HD2).

Google extends security updates for Nexus 5X and 6P to November 2018

Monday, September 25th, 2017

Google has followed the same device support pattern for years - two years of major Android OS updates, and three years of security updates. You might get Android updates after that, and you might get further security updates, but it's not guaranteed. Seemingly out of nowhere, Google has extended the security update period for the Nexus 5X and 6P to November 2018.

Previously, both devices were slated to receive security updates until September 2018, which would have been about three years after they were released.

[Update: Official downloads] The September Oreo update broke SafetyNet and Android Pay for some Nexus 6Ps, but there’s a fix

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Update-woes continue. A recent OTA (OPR6.170623.017) for the Nexus 6P appears to have broken SafetyNet and, subsequently, things like Android Pay. Thankfully, there's a fix. All you need to do is update to a slightly newer build (OPR6.170623.019), and we've even got a link if you'd rather not wait. 

The problem was reported on Google's Product Forums, and just yesterday Google promised to resolve the issue with a corrected OTA.

Google is offering Nexus 6P owners a Pixel XL as a warranty replacement

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

The Nexus 6P is one of those phones that had high initial quality, but it hasn't withstood the test of time very well. This phone has been plagued by battery issues that cause it to randomly shut off. Those who bought their phones from the Google Store have reported success not only with getting the phone replaced, but replaced with a Pixel XL.

There have been sporadic reports for months of 6P owners getting Pixels back from Google, but now it seems like a near certainty in some places.

Tutorial: How to enable Android Oreo’s “Turn on WiFi Automatically” feature on Nexus 5X/6P

Saturday, September 9th, 2017

One of Android Oreo's new features is the ability to automatically turn Wi-Fi back on when you're near a saved network. Essentially, Android will keep track of where each network is located, and will use location services to only turn on Wi-Fi when you're in range. The feature was available for all devices on the Android O Developer Previews, but was disabled in the final release for the Nexus 5X and 6P.
