Google posts initial factory images, OTAs, and driver binaries for Pixel and Pixel XL

Google has posted the first set of factory images for the Pixel (sailfish) and Pixel XL (marlin) on its developer site, along with driver binaries for the devices. Three image versions are available: NDE63H, NDE63L, and NDE63P. The third one began rolling out to Verizon devices today as an OTA update. The full OTA images are available here, as well.

That NDE63P update supposedly brings Wi-Fi fixes, so if you're on an earlier build and having trouble, this OTA may resolve it (I personally am still having 2.4/5GHz switching issues even on the 63P build).

You can download the factory images and the driver binaries at the links below which, yes, still contain 'Nexus' in the page title.

Google Posts Android 6.0.1 Factory Images And Binaries For The Pixel C

Say what you will about the Pixel C, but it's an interesting piece of hardware and Google appears to be determined to give it the right treatment. During yesterday's Reddit AMA, the product team behind the premium tablet was asked if it would receive factory images in the same style as other Nexus devices. The answer was a definite yes. Today we see the team sticking to its word as the Android 6.0.1 factory images are now available, and despite the different product names, they appear on the same page as the Nexus lineup.

Since the Pixel C only hit the Google Store two days ago, it's safe to assume there won't be too many people putting the factory images to good use quite yet, but it's good to see they're available.

Google Posts Additional Android 4.1.2 Nexus Images, Binaries, And The Nexus Q's First Factory Image

Yesterday, Android maintainer JBQ posted up a number of binaries and Android 4.1.2 images for multiple Nexus devices. Owners of international GSM variants of the Galaxy Nexus, though, were left out on the image side. Today, both the "soju" (Nexus S) and "yakju" (Galaxy Nexus GSM) have had their factory images updated to Android 4.1.2, and you can find those images here.

Google also saw fit to finally release a factory image for the Nexus Q, though it's based on Android 4.0.4. A number of driver binaries were added today as well, specifically NFC drivers for the Nexus 7, GSM unlocked Galaxy Nexus (maguro), and both the Sprint and Verizon Galaxy Nexus.
