    Google just released Android 7.0 Nougat today to Nexus phones! :)

    "Supported devices getting the OTA are the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Nexus 9, Nexus Player, Pixel C, and General Mobile 4G. No older Nexus devices are getting the official OTA"
    http://www.androidpolice.com/2016/08/22/android-7-0-nougat-rolling-nexus-devices-starting-today/

    Will start being rolled out to other phones as carriers/manufacturers work on updates.

    More info about Nougat:

    "Introducing The New LG V20. The first new smartphone that comes with Android Nougat, right out of the box. Coming soon."

    Why so fast, I think most of users didn't even know about the version 6.0 [emoji6]

    Hell
    Wish my phone could get enough dev support to eventually have a custom Android Nougat ROM, but that's a pipe dream. :(

    The article put it pretty plain, up to a year for some of us to get it, if at all.

    I found a link to the update for the nexus 5x on another website. I won't be home to check it out for a few hours, anyone got it yet?

    The 2013 Nexus 7 and Nexus 5 wont be getting Nougat, unfortunately official supports has to end sometime.

    There might be some custom ROMs available soon though. :)

    "guys, to get adaway working on N you need to flash the systemless zip found in the adaway thread. did that through flashfire, and everything works as intended so far"

    Stolen from XDA


    Flash the zip from that thread with flashfire then install the app. That's how I got it working.

    Now that I don't see ad's I really like the new version. The changes to the notification tray looks nice.
