May 2017 Nexus and Pixel factory images and OTAs now available to download

Nexus 5X

Like clockwork, Google has released the latest Android monthly security patch.

As usual, accompanying the update is a new security bulletin over at the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) that details the vulnerabilities Google worked to address with this latest patch.

According to the company, the most severe of the patched vulnerabilities was a bug that would have allowed malicious hackers to gain remote access to an Android device. Google says it has had no reports of anyone exploiting that vulnerability before it was patched.

The update is available in both factory image and OTA forms. Instructions on how to flash your Nexus or Pixel device can be found on Google’s developer website.
