Factory Images and Full OTA Images for Android 7.0 Nougat for Nexus Going Live! [Updated with Nexus 6P Links!]

Android 7.0 finally arrived for the public yesterday, but Google slacked off a bit and did not give us direct download links for OTAs and factory images. While OTA’s are good when you do not want to unlock your bootloader, system images come in handy when you mess something up and just want to get back to stock Android.

Here are the factory images for the devices that Google has provided for:
