Which devices does T Mobile update?


The ones to get this little OTA are Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 LTE and Nexus 9. The carrier has a unique variant of Nexus 6, the LYZ28K version, which means that the OTA will not work on other carriers or unlocked versions. The updates for the other aforementioned devices should be the same for all devices.


When it comes to size, the nexus 6 OTA is the largest at 30MB whereas the others sit below at around 20MB each. They will not take long to load but they are rolling out in batches which means you may have to wait for a while for your T Mobile Nexus device to get this security patch.

If you have one of the devices, you can try the preview for yourself by downloading and flashing the TGZ files on Google’s Android Developer page. The OTA updates should arrive to most devices taking part in the test already.


The changes in this version are minimal, the most important changes in the final M preview being the adjustment of the permissions UI and the Fingerprint API. They should not affect the current review hardware. If you want to flash the changes over the current data without losing anything, you should wait a little longer for the OTA to directly reach your device.
