Download: Nexus factory images for the March Android security update are arriving


It’s a little late in the month compared to what we’re used to, but Google has dropped the March security update for Nexus devices. The updates are still Android 6.0.1 (or 5.1.1 for those which didn’t receive Marshmallow, such as the Nexus 10) but they contain code that’ll make your device a bit more secure up against the many vulnerabilities that are discovered.

Here’s a quick list of all the devices with factory images for the latest update:

  • Nexus 5 (MMB29V)
  • Nexus 5X (MMB29V)
  • Nexus 6 (MMB29V)
  • Nexus 9 (MMB29V)
  • Nexus 7 2013 (MMB29V)
  • Nexus 10 (LMY49H)
  • Pixel C (MXC14G)
  • Nexus Player (MMB29V)

You’ll notice the Nexus 6P is missing from that list, but we’re sure Google won’t be long with getting that out. Google posted a full report on which vulnerabilities were found and fixed in this update, so be sure to check it out right here if you’re curious. Those looking for the factory images can park it right here. No word on when the OTA is going out, but it shouldn’t be long now.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
