It was announced last week that Android Marshmallow for the Nexus devices would be released “next week”, and right on cue, theÂ factory images for Android Marshmallow have been released today for your flashing convenience. Specifically, the images that are available today are for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9 and Nexus Player, just as we expected. If you’re looking for where to download them, you’ll be able to find all the images on the Google Developers website.
Just remember that if you’re going to be flashing a factory image to your device, you’ll need to back up all your essentials as it will wipe clean. If that sounds like too much effort, then you’re likely better off waiting for the OTA (over-the-air) updates that should be rolling out as we speak.
If you do take the plunge, we’d love to hear about how you’re finding it in the comments below.
