How to manually install Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTAs on your Nexus using Mac OSX [VIDEO]


While updating a Nexus phone to Android 6.0 Marshmallow on Windows and Linux are trivial matters, things are a bit different for those who dwell in the land of the Macs. Thankfully there’s some help out there that should get you well on your way.

The video you see above was originally made for the Nexus 5’s Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, but thankfully it still fully applies to installing Android 6.0 Marshmallow on any modern Nexus device. The most you’ll need is the Android SDK and the appropriate OTA files for your device (which you’ll be able to find right here).

Otherwise, an attention to detail and the ability to sit through a 3 minute video are all you need to get yourself educated on what to do. Give it a go, but be careful. And remember, if you aren’t comfortable with manually flashing updates then there’s nothing wrong with waiting for it to hit your device naturally.

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.
