CalyxOS OTA updates

These are the OTA updates that are usually delivered directly to your device.

Note: If you're installing CalyxOS for the first time, you should get the factory image instead and follow the factory image installation instructions.

If you’re running the “Previous build” mentioned in the table below, you can choose the incremental OTA, it is a much smaller file containing only the difference between that previous build and the latest.

Otherwise, you should choose the full OTA update, that can be used to update from any build.

Next, see the OTA installation instructions.

Optional: To verify the SHA256 digest, run the command sha256sum FILENAME_OF_DOWNLOAD and compare the result with the value in the table below.

  • Over-the-air Updates: CalyxOS updates are delivered over-the-air (OTA) automatically, without any manual intervention needed. However, if you'd like to manually update your CalyxOS install, see OTA.
  • Security Updates: The Pixels 5a (5G), 4a (5G), 5, 4a, 4 XL, 4, 3a XL, 3a, 3 XL, 3 contain the full security patch, as they are still being updated by Google.
  • End-of-life: The Pixels 2 and 2 XL are no longer being updated by Google, so the CalyxOS releases for these devices only contain the fixes to the open source components, such as the OS code and the Linux kernel. Proprietary components such as the bootloader, modem firmware, and other firmware no longer get updates.
  • End-of-life: The Xiaomi Mi A2 is no longer being updated by Xiaomi, so the CalyxOS releases for it only contain the fixes to the open source components, such as the OS code and the Linux kernel. Proprietary components such as the bootloader, modem firmware, and other firmware no longer get updates. Additionally, due to a Xiaomi bug wherein updating causes the device to get wiped, we have to ship the September 2020 firmware.
