The Android Security Bulletin contains details of security vulnerabilities affecting Android devices. Alongside the bulletin, we have released a security update to Google devices through an over-the-air (OTA) update. The Google device firmware images have also been released to the Google Developer site. Security patch levels of January 05, 2017 or later address all of these issues. Refer to the Pixel and Nexus update schedule to learn how to check a device’s security patch level.
Nexus and Pixel owners can follow the download and OTA links below or just check your system settings for the update if you don’t already see the notification in your status bar. Note that there are two different build numbers listed, depending on whether or you not your device received a separate patch recently. The same security patch will eventually be rolled out by OEMs with brand-specific patches added.
- Pixel XL (Android 7.1.1) Factory image: NMF26U, NMF26V; OTA: NMF26U, NMF26V

There are two security patch levels included in this month’s Android security bulletin, one dated January 1 and the other January 5. Supported Google devices will only get the January 5 patch, while OEMs will be able to address the “partial security patch level string” first if they so choose.
