LG Nexus 5X factory images for Android 6.0 now available from Google
‘Tis that time of the year again, when new Nexus devices are shipping from suppliers and into the adoring arms of early adopters. Indeed some customers are already in receipt of the LG Nexus 5X, and of that crowd there will inevitably be a number of users who want to get their mod on. Google has, thankfully, just posted the official 5X factory images for Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Please be aware that three variants are currently posted for the device, known as “Bullhead” however Google has not included any information to specify which one is which. To this end, it is advisable for users to check their device’s Settings -> About Phone menu to glean the relevant variant listing: MDA89E, MDA89F, or MDB08I and ensure that the correct one is flashed to ensure full compatibility.
Please also note that flashing the ROM will erase all contents on your phone, thus a proper back-up is suggested before doing anything drastic. Those willing to take the risk but unsure of what to do can read our guide here.
