The OTA download links for the newly released Android 6.0 Marshmallow (MPA44I) Developer Preview 3 are now unofficially available on Nexus 5, Nexus 6 and Nexus 9.
Avid Nexus users who cannot wait for Google's official release of Android 6.0 OTA firmware can go ahead and install the same manually, using the following download links:
Nexus 5: hammerhead MPA44I from MPZ79M
Nexus 6: shamu MPA44I from MPZ79M
Nexus 9: volantis MPA44I from MPZ79M
IBTimes UK will not be held responsible for any damage to device during or after the firmware installation. Users are advised to proceed at their own risk.
Key points to remember
- These OTA firmware files are meant to be flashed via stock recovery on a completely stock version or unmodified MPZ79M official firmware.
- Those who have modified their device's system kernel via rooting or installing Xposed Framework tools should use the factory images, as the OTA firmware won't work on such systems.
Those interested in flashing the OTA file should use the ADB sideload method via stock recovery, and those looking to install the factory image can follow the steps outlined in the step-by-step guide posted here.
