The Android 6.0 train is rollin’.
Over-the-air updates have begun to hit various Nexus devices, including the Nexus 9 and Nexus 7 (2013), in both their WiFi and LTE counterparts.
Nexus tablets usually get their OTA updates sooner than the smartphones because they require fewer carrier approvals. Though the Nexus 5 and 6 are both sold unlocked directly from Google, the company is required to cooperate with carriers, the FCC and Industry Canada to certify their updates for use on North America’s cellular networks.
We’ll detail all the updates here when they’re available. If you’re really in need of updating, factory images are already available for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus Player.
Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi – 5.1.1 LMY48M to 6.0 MRA58K
Nexus 7 (2013) LTE – 5.1.1 LMY48P to 6.0 MRA58K
Nexus 9 WiFi – 5.1.1 LMY48T to 6.0 MRA58K
Nexus 5 – Coming soon
Nexus 6 – 5.1.1 LMY48M to 5.1.1 LMY48T
Nexus Player – Coming soon
Manually flashing an OTA update is not recommended. But if you choose to take that step, make sure that you’re running stock firmware and recovery, and have the ability to sideload your ZIP file through adb. If you don’t understand what this means, wait until your phone receives the update.
