If you want to manually update your Nexus or Pixel device, then go to developers.google.com and grab the OTA binary image files. The advantage of manually updating your device using full OTA images if that you won’t need to wipe it. “These files are for use only on your personal Nexus or Pixel device 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,” Google has mentioned.
As for the changes that the December Android security patch has brought, you will find more details by heading to the Android Security Bulletin.
Verizon was among the first carriers that offered a changelog for the Pixel and Pixel XL’s Android 7.1.1 Nougat update, and the fixes were for error 9999, which appeared when customers tried to retrieve their Visual Voicemail messages; voicemail icon notification which wasn’t displayed when a new voicemail message was received; the issue that caused the device to stop playing voicemail messages over Bluetooth after the screen timed out; a bug that caused the screen to go blue during an inbound call; text was garbled on the call screen/dialer and the text was corrupted on the Recent Calls and contact list screens. Also, the update has made the email font larger.
On the other hand, the new Pixel and Pixel XL builds have fixed some issues that had to do with the sending and receiving MMS on UK carrier O2.
