Steps to Downgrade Nexus devices To Android 7.0 from Android 7.1 Nougat: Google recently released its two new latest devices, the Pixel, and the Pixel XL. Both of these two new devices run the latest and greatest version of Android that Google has to offer, Android 7.1. While we thought it might take some time for the discontinued Nexus devices to get it, Google has stayed put on its word, and has already released the Android 7.1 update program to its older flagships.Downgrade Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Pixel C from Android 7.1 to Android 7.0 Nougat

You can upgrade the following devices to the Android 7.1 developer preview  Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Pixel C
