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.

Security update notes

  • The Pixels 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.
  • The Pixels 2 and 2 XL are not being updated by Google anymore, so they 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.
  • The Xiaomi Mi A2 is still getting security updates, but those are Android 10 and usually released towards the end of the month, whereas CalyxOS is Android 11 and releases the updates right as they're available. This means that the A2 lags behind slightly, by a month or two, in getting security updates for proprietary components.
