Nexus 9-2

Following on from yesterday’s LMY48I update for the Nexus 5 and 6 smartphones, factory images featuring the same fix have now been uploaded for the Nexus 4, 7 (2013), LTE and WiFi versions of the 9, and the Nexus 10.

In case you missed it, the LMY48I Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update addresses the “Stagefright” exploit that was reported to Google late last month. The update doesn’t appear to add in any other features or tweaks, so it is simply designed to patch this issue.

You can find the factory image for all of the devices mentioned above at this link, complete with step-by-step instructions for performing the installation.

If you don’t want to faff around with installing the update yourself, it is very likely that an over-the-air update will begin rolling out to the extended Nexus range very soon. So keep an eye out for that notification.

Handset owners from other brands will have to sit tight for their version of the update. Google expects that most popular flagship phones should see a patch sometime this month and Samsung has already begun rolling out its fix.
