August Security Bulletin as well as OTA Updates and Factory images for supported Nexus/Pixel devices released

Google has released their monthly security bulletin, releasing fixes in the form of updates for their supported Nexus and Pixel devices at the same time.

The August update patches a number of different reported vulnerabilities affecting media framework, libraries, the Kernel and hardware updates from Mediatek, Qualcomm and Broadcomm. There are, as usual, two patch levels: 2017-08-01 and 2017-08-05, with manufacturers free to update their devices as they see fit, though the 5th August patch includes a number of Googe device specific updates.

Google has released OTA updates and factory images with the 5th of August security patch implemented, and will be pushing security OTA updates to supported Nexus and Pixel devices over the next few days. The updates include:


  • Nexus 6: N6F27I & N8I11B
  • Nexus 6P: N2G48C
  • Nexus 5X: N2G48C
  • Nexus Player: N2G48C
  • Nexus 9 LTE: N9F27H
  • Nexus 9 Wi-Fi: N4F27K


  • Pixel: NJH47F
  • Pixel XL: NJH47F
  • Pixel C: N2G48C

Google will push the updates, but of course you can head over to the OTA or Factory Images pages and download the requisite files for your device and flash it manually.

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.
