The #Android 6.0 #Marshmallow update is slowly making its way to a wide range of #Nexus devices out there. But given the nature of Google’s update rollout, it’s not surprising if some devices don’t get it on the scheduled date. This can obviously lead to some frustration for the customers. And that’s exactly why there are OTA zip files that are made available on the internet, so that your transition is hastened.
These Android 6.0 OTA zip files are the same updates that Google would eventually send out and is marked as official, so you have absolutely nothing to worry about while flashing these. However, it’s always safe to make a data backup beforehand so that you’re well prepared in case things go awry.
Make sure you know how to flash zip files before you go ahead with the process though. We have to warn you that this can be quite tricky at times and might potentially brick your device if not done right.
Also, users might need to download the October security patch on their device before making the switch to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. If you’ve already received the security patch for this month, make sure you hit the link below and download the update zip file manually.
