Google Now Provides OTA Images For Nexus DevicesBy cheatmaster 10:54 Mon, 02 Aug 2021 Comments
Serial flashers (not that kind) are already aware of Google's factory images for Nexus devices, that let you download the full Read-Only Memory (ROM) and flash it to your Nexus device. The downside to doing this was you needed an unlocked bootloader, and doing that would wipe your device.
Enter OTA binary image files. These allow you to sideload the image to your device with adb through recovery without having to bother with the bootloader. This means you can upgrade easily without having your data wiped (although it wouldn't harm to backup, just in case).
As before, these are only available to Nexus devices for now.
