Google briefly broke 'Droid Pay with last week's Android update
Which is why lucky Nexus owners have had two OS updates in a week
Last week's Android security update broke Android's Pay for some Nexus 6 users, so it was pulled and re-posted.
We'll probably never know whether the issue would have affected users on non-Google devices because it takes a while for new firmware to wend its way through the alleys of the Android ecosystem, but Nexus 6 users were quick to vent on Reddit about their broken Android Pay.
The issue landed as a bug report, and on March 9, a Googler said developers had been assigned to fix the issue.
The issue was apparently a bug in Google's SafetyNet, which mistakenly flagged devices as rooted and blocked Android Pay.
The update fixes nine critical bugs in Mediaserver, a local-but-critical exposure in the recovery verifier, and a remote code execution vulnerability in OpenSSL and BoringSSL.
There are also third-party fixes for Qualcomm, Mediatek, NVIDIA and Broadcom drivers. ®
