This week has been filled with lots of Android 7.0 Nougat-y goodness, and the train isn’t showing any sign of stopping. Google started the rollout of Android Nougat earlier this week, began distributing factory images for the update on Tuesday, and an unofficial build of Nougat popped up for the Nexus 5 yesterday. Now, we have another. How does an unofficial ROM of Android Nougat for the Nexus 7 (2013) sound?…

When Google began rolling out Android Nougat earlier this week — and began distributing factory images for the update just yesterday — one long-supported device was notably left out: the Nexus 5. Android developers across the web saw an opportunity with this omission, though, and have already begun distributing early builds of Android 7.0 Nougat for the LG-made device…

It was only yesterday that Google announced the rollout of Android 7.0 Nougat, and it was only today that factory images started popping up. Now, the web is already abuzz with speculation about when the next version of Android, presumably Android 7.1, will be released, and what it will bring.

By way of website & app analytics, info from the well-informed David Ruddock, and speculation from guy-who-leaked-the-Nexus-Launcher Nate Benis, it seems that 7.1 might be coming soon — alongside the new Nexus phones — and it might be the first regular maintenance release for Android Nougat…

Google has now started the rollout the final build of Android 7.0 Nougat to Nexus devices everywhere, and in most cases that means you’ll just be installing an over-the-air update on the phone itself with a few taps. But if for some reason you might want to start completely fresh and install one of the factory images that Google provides, we’re here to help you do that.

If you have the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, or Pixel C (or the General Mobile 4G Android One device), there’s a fresh build of Android 7.0 Nougat now — or soon — available for you to install. Be warned however, as this process might be a bit overwhelming if you’re not familiar with using a command line. If that doesn’t sway you, keep reading…

Unlike the Motorola-made super-big Nexus 6, the most recent Nexus phones — the Nexus 6P, and its brother the Nexus 5X — have embraced the traditional unlocked Nexus way of life and have been unavailable to purchase through carriers. That’s seemingly going to change again with the 2016 “Nexus” phones, which according to both a leaked system image and the famed leakster Evan Blass, are going to once again be available locked via carriers such as AT&T and Verizon…
