Hey Franco,

Is there a reason may security patch love is absent?

Google just published the May security patch 2 days ago and I assume Franco has a life outside of Android kernels, other more popular devices to support, or whatever. Pestering him for an update won't make it come any faster.

I thought they were released earlier.

Pestering is not my intent. I was just curious, there is a difference. That's also why I asked about a reason instead of a when. And I think as a long term supporter of his work I'm allowed to ask a question once a while.

You can install the kernel from TWRP and it will function fine without root.

If you want to use the functionality from the kernel manager, like night shift, you need root.

Google posted the May security patch for supported devices on May 7th, but pulled the update for the 6P an hour or two later. They finally officially released the update for the 6P on May 15th. The reason for this is unknown.

For the past few months they've been posting two different builds for the 6P, but this month they only posted one. I suspect there were some bugs as a result of merging the two builds, so the update was pulled to fix them. This is just speculation, so there's a chance I'm completely wrong. We'll probably never know...

Ah that it was pulled I didn't know.
Maybe I missed it due to all the announcements from Google I/O.
