Why don’t I see NRD90M in NRT for my device yet???
Hello everyone. I keep getting asked the following questions in some manner:
Why don’t I see NRD90M in Nexus Root Toolkit?
When will you update it to support NRD90M for my deivice?
The answer is simple. As of right now (8/30/16) Google has not yet published NRD90M Factory Images for all of the Nexus Devices Yet.
Currently they have published the official NRD90M 7.0.0 factory images ONLY for the following devices:
"ryu" Pixel C
"bullhead" Nexus 5X
"fugu" Nexus Player
"volantis" Nexus 9 (Wi-Fi)
So, if you don’t have one of those devices, you will not yet see that build available in NRT.
But WugFresh, I don’t have one of those devices – but my phone is already updated to NRD90M. What gives!? Can I root it?
Yes, if you are signed up for the android beta program than you may receive an update before the factory images become available. If so, YES – you can currently root it with NRT even though its not yet listed.
- When selecting your device and build. For the build selection pull-down menu, select the last entry, called “Any Build”:
* Alternatively, if you were to use the “Auto Detect Device + Build…” button, it would automatically select this option for you.
So.. how to get Android 7.0.0 for a device that Google hasn’t published the Factory images yet??
Answer: Sign up for the android beta program and enroll your device, then wait for the update:
But I want to update to 7.0.0 with NRT! When will the 7.0.0 update be available for my device??
Answer: I don’t know, I am not Google. I will happily work to update this program when it does become available (hopefully soon), but for now – your guess is as good as mine.
