If you happen to own a Nexus device and you’ve been waiting to get your hands on the most recent version of Android, your wait is finally over – Google has just posted Android 6.0 Marshmallow factory images for all current Nexus devices. Owners of the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9 and Nexus Player can now download and install Android 6.0 on their devices.

Remember that installing these updates directly from the Google Developer website requires a bit of know-how, and we’ve put together a walkthrough that should be able to help if you’re new to the manual installation method. If you aren’t keen on updating manually, Google should  begin rolling out Android 6.0 OTAs to these Nexus devices any day now.

    I’m stuck waiting for a marshmallow rom.I can’t flash stock on my nexus 7 because my nexus charging port is broken and it wont connect to the computer.

    • Gregory Jimenez Peralta

      Isn’t that a very cheap fix?

      • Carter Taylor

        The charger isnt broken its the actual port in the nexus. If that’s what you were referring to then how would you fix that?

        • Gregory Jimenez Peralta

          It’s replaceable, just bring it to a technician. I don’t know how it’s done, but it’s possible and i don’t think its a expensive fix. In youtube there are several videos, this one for example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkaDHSS-Jtc

    Anybody here have a Nexus 6? I’m dying to find out how well the new Marshmallow microSD handling and built-in fingerprint sensor support is working for them.

    • Haidar

      Yes, my fingerprint sensor is working on my Nexus 6.

      • There is no sensor on the N6.

        • Haidar

          Exactly.

          I think he was kidding on both accounts.

    Arstechnica is reporting and has tested the potential rehabilitation of external storage to full functionality, and it looks great. Of course there is no MM phone with a microSD slot, yet, but maybe we’ll be back to the future with Gingerbread abilities, or better. Since then, microSD has been tortured like Reek in the Game of Thrones. The new motto for the new “Alphabet” is “Do the right thing.” We’ll see.
