May Security update for Android released – Pixel and Nexus Images released

tory images and OTA updates for supported Nexus and Pixel devices.

The security bulletin lists two patch levels as usual, with May 1st and May 5th patches available. There are a bunch of Critical, High, Moderate and Low severity alerts outlined, and patched in these updates, for a little light reading you can check out the Security Bulletin in its entirety.

Supported Nexus and Pixel devices are of course patched up to May 5th level in the new Factory images and OTA updates that have been released. For those Pixel XL owners who received the Dog Food version of the May update last month, there appears to be no change to the build #.

Nexus Devices:

  • Nexus 5X – N2G47O
  • Nexus 6 – N6F27C
  • Nexus 6P – N2G47O
  • Nexus 9 – N4F27B
  • Nexus Player – N2G47R


  • Pixel – N2G47O
  • Pixel XL – N2G47O
  • Pixel C – N2G47O

If you’re not inclined to flash your Nexus/Pixel, you can expect an OTA update being pushed to your device in the near future.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
