Google recently released a slew of factory images for Nexus devices, following the company’s new commitment to release a security update for its Nexus line each and every month. This one in particular fixes a vulnerability in Stagefright, and updates have been slowly rolling out over-the-air following the announcement. Below we have listed every device that actually received a new LMY48I factory image, alongside a direct link to their OTA .zip downloads…
While you can find factory image downloads at Google’s official support site, these OTA links (via Android Police) can be downloaded and installed manually without losing the data on your device. If you aren’t quite sure how to do this, you can follow our guide. Otherwise you can just wait a bit for the respective over-the-air update to arrive on your device; it probably won’t be long before it does. We’re still waiting on the Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 9, but you can find a variety of OTA .zips below:
Nexus 4: from 5.1.1 (LMY47V) to 5.1.1: occam LMY48I from LMY47V
Nexus 5: from 5.1.1 (LMY48B) to 5.1.1: hammerhead LMY48I from LMY48B
Nexus 6: from 5.1.1 (LMY47Z) to 5.1.1: shamu LMY48I from LMY47Z (International, Sprint, U.S. Cellular, Verizon, and AT&T) from 5.1.1 (LVY48C) to 5.1.1: shamu LVY48E from LVY48C (Project Fi) from 5.1.1 (LYZ28E) to 5.1.1: shamu LYZ28J from LYZ28E (T-Mobile USA)
Nexus 9: from 5.1.1 (LMY47X) to 5.1.1: volantis LMY48I from LMY47X (Wi-Fi) from 5.1.1 (LMY47X) to 5.1.1: volantisg LMY48I from LMY47X (LTE)
Nexus 10: from 5.1.1 (LMY47V) to 5.1.1: mantaray LMY48I from LMY47V
As far as we know, this update only brings a fix for the vulnerability in Stagefright — no other changes have yet been noticed. Notably, it looks like Google has officially stopped supporting the Nexus 7 (2012). We’ll keep you updated and let you know as soon as the four missing Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 9 OTA .zips are available.
