AOSP is distributed with the source code and tools for full (whole image) and incremental (binary patch) secure over-the-air (OTA) software updates, specifically an alternate boot target Recovery Console, the updater logic itself, and tools to create software updates.

This presentation will give a detailed end-to-end description of how software updates are created, digitally signed, and applied to the device.
