Why not have an update for your Google Pixel phone on Star Wars Day? This happens because the Android security patch for May is available from pixel 2 to pixel 4. We have both OTA and factory image files available and you can update them immediately.
We are currently seeing new 1
For build notes, we have the following:
- QQ2A.200501.001.A3 builds are specifically for TW or Taiwan carriers
- The builds QQ2A.200501.001.B2 and QQ2A.200501.001.B3 apply to all other network operators
TO UPDATE: Google has not yet released whether this update includes functional patches for pixel phones.
Google has been a hit or miss over the years when it comes to making the update quickly available on your phone. The “Check for updates” button is supposed to work, but you never know when it will be from one month to the next. To check for the update, go to Settings> System> Advanced> System Update.
If you don’t want to wait for Google and prefer to update manually, you can find any image or OTA file using the links below. Instructions for flashing a factory image can be found here. Instructions for flashing an OTA ZIP file can be found here.
We will update this post as more information becomes available.
