T8 Software Releases

Your Rhino T8 is updated throughout it's device lifecycle, no later than 90 days after Google releases their monthly bulletins for security releases, and more often for additional security or functionality fixes as reported by customers and partners.

When an update is released for a Rhino device, it may take a period of time for the device to download, update, and ultimately reboot into the new software version. Network conditions, enterprise policies, global replication across OTA servers, and more may all impact the time taken for the update to become available.

The releases below are in date order (newest > oldest). For release information, please click the build number of a release, or to directly download the update (either incremental or full) click the respective download icon.
