    To everyone’s surprise, Android O Developer Preview 1 is out and this is a post explaining how to update developer preview of Android O for Nexus 5x. This is a manual update process of Developer Preview of Android O for Nexus 5x. Otherwise you will be able to get the Android O developer preview by enrolling to Android BETA program, which is not available for this update unfortunately.

    DISCLAIMER:
    Manually updating Developer Preview of Android O for Nexus 5x requires an unlocked bootloader on Nexus 5x phone, which may VOID your warranty and may delete all your data. Before proceeding further you may consider backup all data on the phone. You are the only person doing changes to your phone and I cannot be held responsible for the mistakes done by YOU.

    STEP by STEP GUIDE TO UPDATE ANDROID O ON NEXUS 5X:

    If you don’t have an unlocked bootloader on your Nexus 5x yet, then follow the below link to get it done:
    Unlocking bootloader on Nexus 5x

    1. Make sure you have already unlocked the bootloader and downloaded the Android O DP1 image for Nexus 5x to be installed, from the above downloads section.

      NOTE:
      The zip file comes in a package which might have similar to the following files:
      bootloader image: bootloader-mako-makoz30d.img
      radio image: radio-mako-m9615a-cefwmazm-2.0.1701.03.img
      The actual Android system image: image-occam-ktu84p.zip
      – scripts for different platforms like Windows and linux that will flash all of the images by itself to your device.

    2. Put the phone into fastboot or bootloader mode.
      – Power off your phone and boot into fastboot by pressing and holding Power Button + Volume Down at the same time.
      – Press volume up or down button and select the power button when you see the Bootloader mode. After pressing power button you will be in Bootloader mode.
      – And then connect your phone to the PC using a USB cable (make sure USB drivers already installed and ADB FASTBOOT utilities must be installed as well).
    3. Run the flash-all.bat by double click on the script file.
      For linux users you have to run the flash-all.sh script file.

      Wait for the script till it flashes everything.

    Alternatively you can flash the images manually with the following commands:

    fastboot flash bootloader bootloader.img
    fastboot flash radio radio.img
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    fastboot flash system system.img
    fastboot flash boot boot.img
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    

    Voila! Just reboot the phone and enjoy the Latest Android O Developer Preview 1 on the Nexus 5x phone. I hope the guide is straight forward for you to follow. In case you find difficulty then just register and leave your reply to get instant assistance for your problem.
