    It looks like they're out. You can sideload them yourself now or wait for the OTA which will start soon.

    I will sideload when I get home tonight .



    Update


    https://www.androidcentral.com/andro...urity-bulletin

    Highlights for January 2018

    January 2018's update comes with two patch dates: 01/01/2018, and 01/05/2018.

    • • January 2018's most severe vulnerability addressed is a patch for the Android runtime that could let an attacker gain access to certain OS features without user interaction
    • • Vulnerabilities that allowed code execution through the Media Framework were patched, like every month.
    • • A vulnerability specific to the LG bootloader that allowed elevated privileges was patched. Life's Good, once again.
    • • A vulnerability specific to the NVIDIA driver that allowed elevated privileges was found and fixed
    • • Qualcomm provided a handful of closed-source fixes in addition to patches for the display driver and bootloader

      If you get an update with a patch date of 01/05/2018, you also have every issue addressed by the 01/01/2018 update in place.

    This update killed my Cricket APN had to reset it again.

    Mods any thoughts on why after the January update sideloaded I can no longer upload pics(screen shots) here? Never had that issue before, when trying to upload it says failed to upload jpeg has incorrect file extension?

    Best to just wait for the normal download.

    I just figured out if you go into settings about phone and click on security patch level it takes you to this page pretty cool

    Usually a day or two after the announcement of the images.

    I have seen people waiting here sometime week or two as well. Google generally rolls the OTA pretty slow, it takes sometime before the staggered OTA reaches everyone.

    I got mine sideloaded.

    I did notice some lag upon boot. I rebooted like others stated and saw it looked like it was installing something else when booting up. Once it was done and booted up... phone is fine. Slick and quick like you would normally expect.

    I loadup desktop, reply, hit advanced, add screenshot, and then submit my post.

    Something broke within Tapatalk and our forums. Tech should be on it.
