If you’ve been waiting for the Android 7.0 Nougat factory images to appear, the rollout is starting now. Android 7.0 factory images are available on the Google Developers site for the Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi), Pixel C and Nexus Player (links below). We expect images for the recent Nexus smartphones will follow soon.
All three have the same build number as those devices that have already received the OTA update: NRD90M and come with the August 5 security patch. The OTA images are also available for these three devices if you’d prefer to go that route instead. If you need a little help with the flashing procedure, feel free to check out our guide to flashing factory images.

Let us know how you go with Android 7.0 Nougat update and what you think of Google’s rollout of it. I don’t know about you, but this has been one of the least painful updates I’ve ever seen. The OTA rolled out so fast yesterday that for the first time I didn’t even have to flash a factory image to get the latest version of Android.
