Hello @BatJoe

Dont the security patches come straight from Google? I was told that unless wrong. ( Google rep told me this).

Re: Google Pixel 1/2 Security Patches

Only if the phone is bought from Google. If you get it from a carrier, it is up to the carrier to let the updates get pushed through. And Rogers is slacking.

Same here.

Kind of disappointing. If a phone made by Google doesn't even get a monthly security patch on time, who does? 🤔

Re: Google Pixel 1/2 Security Patches

Interesting Read on How recent Google Pixel updates are being rolled out, including the WIFI Kracked issue

 

Have a read - https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/11/android-security-update-fixes-krack-slaps-band-aid-on-pixel-...

 

So, although the router's have been shown safe from this issue, it would appear in this article, that it has not been fully dealt with on the Pixel patches from Google, and probably with getting them out to carriers too.

 

Sure this is true with many of the device manufacturer rollouts or patches from either the manufacturer or carrier, and in particular the current security concern.  Best protection right now for that concern is VPN.

Re: Google Pixel 1/2 Security Patches

Well by checking Google's OTA releeases.. seem like the Rogers carrier settings hasn't been pushed yet.

 

"taimen" for Pixel 2 XL

8.0.0 (OPD1.170816.012, Sep 2017, Rogers, Fido)

 

"walleye" for Pixel 2

8.0.0 (OPD1.170816.012, Sep 2017, Rogers, Fido)

 

You guys should really look at the patch dates on those OTA..

Re: Google Pixel 1/2 Security Patches

I thought all Pixel patches come directly from Google. When the original Pixel came out, that was the announcement from Google.

BTW, what would be the issue if we installed the non-Rogers version of the OTA?
