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.

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.

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

Android 8.0 Oreo made its official debut a little over a week ago, but since then, only devices enrolled in the Android Beta Program have received an official OTA to 8.0. Verizon Pixel phones began receiving the official version earlier today, but it looks like other devices haven't been as fortunate. Luckily, Google has just uploaded factory images and OTAs for Nexus and Pixel devices to their respective pages.

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

Nougat had its fair share of Bluetooth issues, particularly on Google's Pixel devices, but you'd be forgiven for hoping that Oreo would avoid similar problems. Sadly, it seems that Pixel and Nexus owners are experiencing a number of different issues after installing the final version of Android 8.0, and Google is trying to gather user feedback in order to address the matter.

Google posted on both the Pixel and Nexus forums asking for information but didn't elaborate on exactly what kind of bugs it was expecting to hear about.

There’s a hack that might save your bootlooping Nexus 6P or 5X

Monday, July 24th, 2017

The last generation of Nexuses (Nexus? Nexsi?) were unfortunately plagued with hardware problems. The Nexus 6P suffered from early shutdowns due to a faulty battery sensors, and the 5X had the famous bootloop bug (which my own 5X eventually fell victim to). The 6P suffered from bootloops as well, to an extent, but now there's a possible fix for the problem on both phones.

XDA member XCnathan32 posted a potential fix for the bug, which involves flashing a modified boot.img file and a custom build of TWRP.

One of the many new features in Android O is support for aptX Bluetooth streaming. aptX is a series of streaming protocols owned by Qualcomm, that feature much lower latency compared to normal Bluetooth audio streaming. But it looks like Nexus 5X and 6P owners won't be able to use it.

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).
