[Final Build] Update Nexus 6P to Android 7.1.2 (N2G47H) Nougat Official Firmware

Google’s program of Android beta allows the most intrepid among us to test the first crack of a new update, but sometimes it can be little annoying to then move to the Final Stable Build. Why? Those who are using Android 7.1.2 tester build are still running a beta version while non-tester got an OTA pack of Stable Android 7.1.2 Nougat. However, this time, it seems Google has started to update the beta build to Stable build on Nexus 6P.

Nexus 6P

This Guide is for Both Android 7.1.2 Beta user as well as Non-testers (who are not in Nougat Beta Build) to Update Nexus 6P to N2G47H Android 7.1.2 Nougat Official Firmware. For Beta Testers, the update clocks in at a mere 25.4MB, which isn’t surprising. You are only going from 7.1.2 to a slightly different 7.1.2. The build number when all’s said and done will be N2G47H. That is the same build that rolled out to non-testers. There should not be any feature differences between the two versions, but being on the right stable build means you will be able to get OTA updates going forward.
