Last nights announcement that Google would be releasing a security update for a range of Nexus devices has come through this morning with factory images being posted to the Google Developers page.
Of the devices promised, only the Nexus Player factory image is missing, with updated factory images with build # LMY48I now available to download for the Nexus 4, 5, 6, 7 (2013) Wi-Fi, 9 and 10. The Nexus 7 (2013) LTE edition has been left out again, though the Nexus 9 LTE has been given an update. So far no sign of OTA updates for the devices have appeared, but they should begin arriving in the next 12-24 hours given the promises made by Google.
The LMY48I binaries have also been updated for developers wanting to get the latest drivers for their builds, so you can find them as usual on the Google Developers site too.
Stay tuned for the OTA update links, and as always if you get the OTA prompt on your device, make sure you capture the link and share it with us.
No love for the N7’12 Wi-Fi? Or is support for this device officially dead?
That device isn’t even worth updating. It was pretty much useless updating past kit-kat.
Nonsense. My 2012 N7 has plenty of use now that my Shield Tablet is officially a fire hazard.
Love your sarcasm mate, but I have one that it running BETTER on v5.0.2 than it did on kit-kat. Better battery life, snappier performance and look nice too. Therefore, I respectfully disagree with your assertions. But seriously, this security flaw applies to my N7’12 as well as all the other newer products. So logic says that we should get this update as well.
I wasn’t being sarcastic.
