LineageOS 13, based on Android Marshmallow, is now discontinued

Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

CyanogenMod 13, based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, first arrived in November 2015. It was soon switched to Android 6.0.1, and continued to be the main branch of CyanogenMod until version 14.1 was released one year later. After the CyanogenMod community re-organized into LineageOS, the distribution was renamed to LineageOS 13.

At this point, most of the devices that had LineageOS 13 have either been updated to v14.1, or dropped entirely (usually due to inactive maintainers).

[Update: Rolling out] Google finally preparing a fix for Nexus Player remote sleep bug from last November

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

Since late last November, Nexus Player owners have had the frustrating experience of erratic behavior from the remote. After about 5 to 10 minutes, the remote would seemingly go to sleep. Pressing any button causes the remote to blink for a few seconds, then hopefully reconnect. While not precisely broken, the erratic functionality from the remote has been a point of pain for owners of Google's streaming hockey puck.

Google posts Nexus/Pixel system images and OTA files for January 2018 patches

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2018

Google is getting an early start in 2018 by rolling out the monthly patches for Nexus and Pixel devices. The OTA files and full system images are available a few days earlier than usual, and devices should begin seeing updates in the not too distant future. It looks like several devices have two different builds available this month, so you'll have to grab the right one if you just can't wait.

As usual, the OTA files are live for those of you without an unlocked bootloader.

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 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.

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.

Android 8.0 Oreo finally arrives on Nexus Player

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

The Nexus Player is getting pretty long in the tooth, as it was released in 2014. It's still supported with software updates though, and was one of the devices to receive Android O Developer Previews earlier this year. However, a nasty bug was discovered close to official release, which caused the Nexus Player to upload a massive amount of data for no apparent reason.

The director of Android TV at Google later confirmed to us that because the problem was discovered so late in development, the fix would arrive with the final Android 8.0 build.

Amid much confusion, Pixels and Nexuses are finally starting to receive September security OTAs

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

A few days ago, we reported on Android's September security bulletin, in which Google seemed to suggest the latest security patches for most Pixel and Nexus devices came bundled with the late-August upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo. That turns out not to be the case, however, as our devices have all been stuck on the August 5th security patch level. There's still a fair amount of confusion swirling, but some users seem to be receiving September OTAs with up-to-date security patches at last.

Google releases Android’s September security bulletin, new images and OTAs to follow

Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

The September 2017 Android security update is here, and the bulletin contains the usual details about vulnerabilities that could be affecting various Android devices. Images and OTAs that include the September patches should protect against any possible issues, but so far they're only available for the Nexus 9 on Android 7.1.1. There are no Android 8.0 Oreo images with September patches for Pixel or Nexus devices live yet, but it shouldn't be too long before they are added.
