Google releases Android 7.1.1 images for Pixel and Nexus devices

If you own a recent Nexus or Pixel, Android 7.1.1 is on its way. Earlier this morning, Google dumped a slew of factory and OTA images for users who want to manually update their phones, rather than wait for them to roll out to each device.

The 240MB update consists of under-the-hood changes in the form of stability improvements and bug fixes, as well as the monthly security patch for December. The phones that are eligible for the update include:

  • Pixel
  • Pixel XL
  • Pixel C
  • Nexus 6P
  • Nexus 5X
  • Nexus 9
  • Nexus Player

You can grab the 7.1.1 factory images here and the OTA images here. If it’s your first time manually updating your phone, Google also supplies step-by-step instructions.
