Flash all the things: Full Android 7.0 Nougat Nexus OTA roundup

It's Nougat day, finally. Google's latest and greatest version of Android is beginning its slow rollout to Nexus devices, plus the Pixel C and General Mobile 4G. Dev preview devices are getting the OTA almost immediately, but devices on Marshmallow are taking a little longer. Google has said it could take a week or two for everyone to get the OTA, but you don't need to wait that long. We're collecting the full Nougat OTA links right here.

September OTA Roundup For Nexus And GPE Devices

Of our many jobs here at Android Police, one is to make our readers' lives easier when we can. With that in mind, here's a roundup of all the OTA links for the latest security update for Nexus and GPE devices.

For Nexus devices, these OTAs basically serve as security and bugfix updates. On the GPE side of things, these mostly serve to finally patch Stagefright, though there is one exception. This OTA cycle is also seeing the Galaxy S4 GPE updated to Android 5.1 for the first time. That was an update that a lot of owners no doubt thought would never come.

[Update: Moto 360] Android Wear 1.3 (LCA43/LCA44B) OTA Roundup

If you own an Android Wear device right now, chances are you're probably waiting patiently furiously checking for that elusive Android Wear LCA43 update. Well, we've got you covered. As the links to the OTA ZIP files become available, we will post them here. To flash these, you'll need to have ADB installed and have the Google USB drivers from the Android SDK. You'll reboot your watch into recovery mode, then select "Install Update From ADB." You can then run "adb sideload filename.zip" from a command prompt.

A Note About Flashing

You can only sideload an OTA update manually if you can actually connect your watch to a computer via USB, and even then, you may not be able to.

[Update: Nexus 9] Marshmallow MPA44I Developer Preview OTA Roundup

Nexus OTAs are a pretty big deal, even when they're not official releases. With that said, here are the OTA links that we have for the Android Developer Preview 3, build MPA44I. If the link for your device isn't shown, it means we don't have it yet. We'll update this post as links come in. As with any OTA, these are intended to be flashed in stock recovery on a completely stock, unmodified MPZ79M system. If you have modified the system (root, Xposed, etc.), these won't work. In that case, you should flash the factory images instead.
