Nextbit has a beta release ready for Android 7.0 Nougat for the Nextbit Robin. The company is now taking enrollment forms from users interested in testing the Nougat update on the Nextbit Robin devices.
Of course, not all who apply for the Nougat beta will get it through the enrollment form. But that’s okay! The Nougat beta firmware for Nextbit Robin will leak anyway on the interwebs once it is released.
While getting Nougat on Nextbit Robin is a happy news. Some of you might be concerned of rooting the device on Nougat.
Well, good news for you. The Android 7.0/7.1 Nougat update has been successfully rooted with SuperSU on several devices. So we doubt if Nextbit Robin would hard to root on Nougat with SuperSU.
However, getting TWRP on Nextbit Robin Nougat update might take some time. The current TWRP recovery build might not support Nextbit’s Android 7.0 update. The folks involved in the development of TWRP for the device may have to update the recovery to get working with TWRP, and only you’ll be able to flash SuperSU to the device to get root.
We’ll be keeping an eye on xda and other Android communities for any development on Nextbit Robin Nougat root status. Stay tuned..
