Pixel C Android 6.0.1 factory images now available

Now that Google's Pixel C is available for purchase on the Google Store, the company has posted the first set of factory images for the device. There are two Android 6.0.1 images available, carrying the build numbers MXB48J and MXB48K, respectively.

Editor's note: We were informed that MXB48J is the official released build. MXB48K is for development purposes.

It's unlikely most people will be needing these so soon, since the Pixel C just became available, but it's good to see you've now got some way to flash back to the stock Android experience should something go awry. And as a bonus, Google has also released the binaries for the Pixel C, so you can get to cooking right away. If you're interested, you can grab the factory images and the binaries from Google at the links below.

  • why have 2 different images on the first day of release? What's the difference?
  • This ^
    Is it an LTE tablet? In which case it'll be one for GSM and one for CDMA probably (sigh.... CDMA.....) Posted via the Android Central App
  • but they would have one that is neither?
  • Oh how I wish all OEMs released factory images. Instead the community relies on begging of bribing employees to leak them. Posted via the Android Central App
  • So do I buy this or the Chromebook Pixel? Posted via the Android Central App
  • What are you wanting to use it for? I'd say if it was between those two, go for the Pixel C, as it offers more functionality with the Play Store and such. I've never been much of a fan of Chromebooks. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Also curious as to what the difference is between both builds? Just got my Pixel C today, it updated right out of the box but is still on build MXB48J
  • It seems that 6.0.1 is not just for the Pixel C tablet as my sister who o bought a Nexus 6 for as well as my self got the 6.0.1 update last night, I'll be due the update tomorrow evening. Posted via My Nexus 6 with Marshmallow goodness
