Google irritates pixel users with alleged downgrade

After the update for Google Pixel (XL) on Android 8.0 Oreo some users are surprised by an update message: Android 7.1.2 is ready for installation? I beg your pardon? Such a downgrade would inevitably be associated with resetting to factory settings. Fortunately the message turns out to be a mistake from Google: Your data is safe.

That would be even nicer: After the large system upgrade from Android 7.1.2 to 8.0.0, of course, minor errors are expected. Usually patches are sufficient to correct them within the first few weeks. A downgrade is considered an absolute emergency solution, since this necessarily results in the reset to factory settings. This was only the case at Nexus 6 in March, but was, as was to be expected, associated with massive difficulties; as Android Police had reported.

Fortunately, this anger does not repeat itself this time, even if it is reported by community reports: The notification for the update on Android 7.1.2 is only a flag failure. In reality Android 8.0.0 with security patch level September 2017 behind it; so the small and planned update.

The September update for the Google pixels can be installed safely without the resetting of your smartphone and closes in this way the latest security gaps. The patch also includes the recently announced BlueBorne gap, which allows your smartphone to take over the active Bluetooth interface.
