Download: Android Marshmallow Preview 3 OTA Updates

After issuing a quick update to build MPA44I (well, new images) that followed the initial release of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow Developer Preview 3, Google is now starting to roll updates out over-the-air (OTA) to compatible Nexus devices. We have a running list of the .zip Preview 3 OTA updates for your Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Nexus Player (soon) below, in case you either didn’t get prompted to update your device or didn’t feel like messing with the factory image files.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow Developer Preview 3 Now Available! (Updated)

UPDATE 8/19:  Google has already posted even newer images. Find them here.


Google just made Android 6.0 “Marshmallow” official, but along with that news, they also released the final M Developer Preview (MPA44G) for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, and Nexus 9. The images are up, but there will also be over-the-air (OTA) updates for those not interested in flashing images.

You can grab the files at the download link below for each device. You’ll find factory image flashing instructions here(more…)

Forget the Renders: This is Probably the LG Nexus 5 (2015)

Prior to the weekend, renders of the LG Nexus 5 (2015) surfaced that were allegedly created by schematics given to case makers. We wouldn’t normally get too excited about these had they arrived via case maker hawking their latest products, but they were created instead by tech websites looking to provide imagery of the device sans case in its potentially real form.

Yesterday, a new image surfaced that is in no way a render. This image, as far a we can tell, is of the actual device in the wild, in someone’s hand. What we have here is a white LG Nexus 5 (2015) with “NOT FOR SALE” note burned into the body just above the “NEXUS” logo.  (more…)

This Could be What the LG Nexus 5 (2015) Will Look Like

Long before devices ever fully materialize in public form, case makers get detailed dimensions and “schematics” of them to help build accessories that are available just as the phones they are made for, launch. We see this made public all the time thanks to companies who post teaser imagery of their upcoming cases, even though the phones they were built for haven’t been announced. The media gets all giggly and hypebeasty about it, claiming “Leak! Leak! Leak!” yet they often times only represent a shape of what the phone could be and rarely show a leak of the actual phone.

And that brings us to today’s topic, the LG Nexus 5 (2015)(more…)

Download: Nexus OTA Stagefright Patches (Updated)

Update 8/13: We now have all available files below.


Last week, Google released factory images for most of its Nexus devices that were supposed to address Stagefright vulnerabilities. While those images are there for the flashing and will get you all patched up, we know that many of you like to wait for over-the-air (OTA) updates to hit your devices. If you are still waiting for those and are willing to sideload the updates instead, we are compiling them in a list below.

Before long, we should have .zip files for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi, Nexus 9 WiFi and LTE, and Nexus 10.

We will continue to update this post as we have more URLs.  (more…)
