Update 10/16: Nexus 6 .zip files added for general, T-Mobile, and Project Fi.
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.

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…)
