My N6 is on Nougat 7.1.1 January security update which I flashed manually. I haven't seen the March update OTA and I wonder if I will ever get it having flashed the 7.1.1 manually.

 

I was thinking of flashing the March update manually using the instructions here

 

https://developers.google.com/android/ota

 

I am guessing that if all goes well I won't have to restore any data since I am sure that's what I did for the original Nougat release but just checking.

 

The phone is backed up but it's a pain to have to remember all the logon passwords etc. for 3rd party apps which Google doesn't seem to save in its backup.

 

Reason for update - the speakerphone bug is really annoying.

From what I understand the OTA images don't wipe your data unlike the regular system images so while a backup is always a good idea, it is unlikely you will need to worry about restoring anything after flashing this. It works just like the normal OTA updates.

 

I've seen a few reports of the occasioanl Nexus device that gets stuck way behind in updates. Can't see any reason not to go this route.
