Google Releases August Security Patch for Pixel and Nexus Devices

Browse By

Google has released the August 2017 security patch for Pixel and Nexus devices. While it’ll take somewhere in the neighborhood of a few weeks for everyone to get the update, it’s now available for those who like sideloading software in the forms of both factory and OTA updates.

As is the case with each security patch, there are two levels with different fixes rolling out. The first is labeled 2017-08-01, while the second is 2017-08-05. The most critical of the fixes present include patches made to Android’s media framework to prevent potential hackers from executing arbitrary code.

If you wanna install an image of this month’s security patch, follow this guide. Otherwise, sit and be patient for it to hit your Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, or Nexus Player.
