    Google launches a new page to host OTA images, just like they do for factory images
    Google has been posting full factory images for their Nexus devices for a while now and recently the company started posting OTA images for their updates as well.

    This means you will be able to manually download the OTA updates directly from Google and update the Nexus devices yourself instead of waiting for someone to capture the URL.

    Interesting that Google included this text above the Terms and Conditions on the https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/ota page:

    These files are for use only on your personal Nexus devices and may not be disassembled, decompiled, reverse engineered, modified or redistributed by you or used in any way except as specifically set forth in the license terms that came with your device.

    Hmm...

    (and just to play grammer cop for a second, the second sentence on that page is a bit "awkward":

    This page contains OTA binary image files that allow you to manually update your Nexus devices. This have the same effect of flashing the corresponding factory images, but without the need of wiping the device.

    :p)
