With Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow official and ready for your device in the form of a factory image, it only makes sense that we would start to see the over-the-air (OTA) .zip files arriving as well. We have begun to capture many below and will continue to update this post regularly until we have them all. You may just want to bookmark this post.
As a recap, we have two Android 6.0.1 builds at this time as MMB29K and MMB29M. The updates feature December security fixes, but also introduce a whole bunch of new emoji, along with a new font to Android at a system level. Other than that, there isn’t much else that is new. Still, because we have security fixes here, you’ll want to update as soon as possible.
The files and instructions on what to do with them can be found below. (more…)
Earlier this morning, Google announced that Android 6.0.1 would begin rolling out to Nexus devices with a whole bunch of emoji. Moments ago, they followed up that announcement by posting up factory images of Android 6.0.1 for the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus Player, Nexus 9 (LTE and WiFi), Nexus 5, and Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi and LTE.

Last week, Google’s Hiroshi Lockheimer teased via Twitter that a new update would arrive on Nexus devices this week with a whole bunch of new and updated emoji on board. Today, that update is official as Android 6.0.1. And yep, it includes a bunch of new emoji, which we showed you last week. (more…)
Google just posted a whole bunch of new factory images for its line of Nexus devices, likely as November’s monthly security update (Yep, here are the details.). We have both Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop images, depending on the device, of course. (more…)
Lost in yesterday’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow bag of Nexus glory was a subtle announcement from T-Mobile as to which of its devices will receive the update to Google’s latest tasty treat. Via their software update status page, we can see a list of devices that have all entered the early development stage for the upgrade to Android 6.0.
Outside of the Nexus devices they support, which are about to receive the update, the rest are all still in stage 1, which is “Manufacturer Development.” In other words, T-Mobile is waiting for each individual OEM to get them updates for testing before being able to push it to your phone. It’ll be a while on some of these, unfortunately. (more…)
Google told us yesterday that Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA updates were starting to rollout to the Nexus devices set to receive them, so like we always do for major updates, we have started capturing all of the URLs for the .zip files for each. Below, you will find Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA .zip files for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9, and Nexus Player.
If you aren’t seeing a file just yet, that’s because we probably haven’t seen it yet. As we continue to receive new file URLs that are direct downloads from Google, we will continue to update this post. (more…)
Not only are the Android 6.0 Marshmallow factory images available for flashing to select Nexus devices, but Google has also begun pushing over-the-air (OTA) updates to those same Nexus products. Over the coming days – because this is a slow rollout, folks – your Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9, and Nexus Player will all receive the update to Android 6.0, build MRA58K. (more…)
Android 6.0 Marshmallow has officially arrived for a number of Nexus devices, including the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), and Nexus 9. Over-the-air (OTA) updates will be rolling out slowly to those devices over the coming days, but if you want the goodness now, you can upgrade via factory images that were posted here.
The latest version of Android offers a bunch of new features, many of which hide behind the scenes to add stability, endurance, and polish to last year’s Lollipop release. They aren’t all back-end optimizations, though. One of the few forward-facing features you will run into and likely use on a regular basis, is Google Now on Tap. (more…)
