Google releases Android’s October security bulletin, OTAs and factory images available for Nexus/Pixel devices

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.

If you're interested in the full list of security vulnerabilities and bugs fixed with this update, you should check out the security bulletin on Android's website.

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).

It's September, and however you might feel about that, one thing is certain: Google's going to release its monthly security updates. While the OTAs were pushed yesterday, downloads for the factory images and OTAs wasn't available until just now.

It's that time of the month again - Google has released the August security patch for Android, and it's available to install on Pixel and Nexus devices right now. As always, you can either wait for the update to be pushed to you, or sideload it manually.

The August update patches vulnerabilities in the Android media framework, the kernel, and a few other areas. You can read the full security bulletin here for all the details.

LineageOS adds support for Motorola Droid 4, 2015 NVIDIA Shield TV, and more

Wednesday, July 5th, 2017

When we last covered the LineageOS project, support for the Nexus 9 was added along with a few phones from Xiaomi. Since then, more devices have been added to the official builds, and there are a wealth of new features in the ROM. Without any further ado, let's take a look.

First, it might be best to go over some of the functionality added since our last post. You can now disable album art on the lockscreen, the sensitive numbers list has been expanded with entries for new countries, the alarm clock can now set a system profile when an alarm triggers, and the ROM's media codecs have been updated.

LineageOS now supports the Xiaomi Mi MIX, Mi 5s, and other devices

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

I find myself constantly impressed with the LineageOS community. Formed from the remains of CyanogenMod, the project has continued to add support for new devices and maintain most of CM's library. Since our last post, Lineage has added support for a handful of Xiaomi phones and updated the Wi-Fi Nexus 9 to LOS 14.1.

Lineage is now supporting the Xiaomi Mi 5s (capricorn), Mi 4c (libra), and the bezel-less Mi MIX (lithium).

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.

Monday, May 1st, 2017

It's the first day of May, and Google is wasting no time releasing the May 2017 factory images and OTAs for Nexus and Pixel devices. Just like last month, the security update has reached the Pixel/Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 6, and Nexus 9.

For reference, here is the build information for each device:

  • Pixel/Pixel XL: N2G47O
  • Pixel/Pixel XL (Deutsche Telekom): N2G47T
  • Pixel/Pixel XL (Verizon): NHG47L
  • Pixel C: N2G47O
  • Nexus 6P: N2G47O
  • Nexus 5X: N2G47O
  • Nexus 6: N6F27C
  • Nexus Player: N2G47R
  • Nexus 9: N4F27B

If you're one of the people who updated to the early May 2017 build that Google accidentally published, it seems to have the same build number as the final release.
