Download: Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA links are starting to popup


Google started pushing Android 6.0 Marshmallow out to the masses yesterday. Many of you used factory images to get loaded up on the latest version of Android, but OTA updates are also beginning to go out for those who prefer traditional rollouts.

Android Marshmallow 2

Those OTA updates (some of them, anyway) can now be downloaded and flashed without having to wait. We only have links for Nexus 9 and Nexus 7 tablets to start, but more should be finding their way onto the list over time and we’ll be sure to update this list when they do.

Nexus 6

There are several links for getting to the October security patch depending on your device.

From there, you’ll be greenlit to go to MRA58K Marshmallow, but we don’t yet have an OTA file for that. We’ll  be sure to update this post with one as soon as we do!

Nexus 5

This flashable file takes you from LMY48M to MRA58K.

Nexus 9 LTE

Nexus 9 WiFi

Nexus 7 2013 LTE

This flashable file takes you from LMY48P to MRA58K.

Nexus Player

This flashable file takes you from LMY48N to MRA58K.

How to install

Flashing these things should be quite easy if you know your way around ADB. If you don’t, the instructions we provided you for Android 5.1 Lollipop still fully apply, so be sure to check that out if you’re a bit lost. Note that you don’t need a full installation of the Android SDK to get access to ADB and fastboot. This AndroidForums.com thread should get you squared away on a quick and easy solution for that.

Need more help? Be sure to sign up there and ask questions to the helpful community. And if you still find yourself uncomfortable with the process, just sit tight and wait for the OTA to hit your device naturally. Let us know how you’re liking Marshmallow once you have it on your device!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
