Android is a mobile platform that will be released as open source and available for free use by anybody. This means that there will be many Android-based products available to consumers, and most of them will be created without the knowledge or participation of the Android Open Source Project. Like the maintainers of other open source projects, we cannot build and release patches for the entire ecosystem of products using Android. Instead, we will work diligently to find and fix flaws as quickly as possible and to distribute those fixes to the manufacturers of the products.
In addition, We will add security fixes to the open source distribution of Android and publicly announce the changes on android-security-announce.
If you are making an Android-powered device and would like to know how you can properly support your customers by keeping abreast of software updates, please contact us at [email protected].
