Marshmallow rollout for Nexus devices is due to start tomorrow – subscribe to these Pushbullet channels to get notified of factory images

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 4.43.18 pm
According to Google, tomorrow, well the 5th of October in the US, is Marshmallow day. Google advised they would begin rolling out the update to the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9 and Nexus Player. So how will you know when the update is live? The answer is Pushbullet.

The usual order of release is Google pushes updates to the Android Open Source Project, we then see Factory images uploaded to the Android developers Nexus Factory Images page, before finally seeing updates pushed to devices via Over-The-Air (OTA) updates.

A while back, reddit user icefall5 created pushbullet channels for all the devices that will receive the update all you need is Pushbullet – either the Desktop App or browser extension or the Android App – and then subscribe to the appropriate channel below:

Of course the distribution of OTA updates for the devices is most important, although you can flash your Nexus with a factory image without wiping if you edit the flashall.bat script file and remove the ‘-w’ option (-w wipes the user partition). If you do get a notification that an OTA is available, make sure you use our ‘How-To’ on capturing the link to the OTA update on the Google server. Once we have the OTA update link, you can use our How-To on sideloading the update to your device.

We’re watching AOSP now to find out when the upload begins, so stay tuned….

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Be wary of flashing this and not wiping the userdata partition. I have heard reports of weirdness happening. This is a full number update (5 to 6) and there are major permission changes for apps.

So here is Ausdroid saying they will notify us, meanwhile almost every other Android website out there has already posted that they are available.

Sorry guys, but you are always so far behind in the news.

most of the sites you are following are IN US i guess, whihc means they are active when the release happens…unlike Ausdroid which is local……remember there is DST just changed as well to make us more sleepy 🙂

Ray, go elsewhere and moan there. Your comments are not needed or appreciated.

I really don’t care what you think. What I posted is “fact”. 9 times out of 10 Ausdroid is often a day or two (sometimes more) behind.

So why do you think we want to read your sad comments ? These guys do this as a hobby, do you really think they are going to have a 24 hour website just to keep you happy ? I say again if they are so bad why do you keep coming back ?
BTW they were very quick notifying of the first OTA’s available.

Keep your self appointed “facts” to yourself.

Self appointed? Hardly! History clearly shows it.

Now, feel free to get over yourself.

Why bother with that when Ausdroid will inform us quick smart when the links are ready. You guys do awesome work so why worry about somewhere else.

Why no nexus 4 when apple is still supporting iPhone 4s which is 4 years old 🙁

Time to upgrade your device. You can’t expect Google to keep building for a device that is several generations behind now.

“several generations”….lol….read my comment ….its a nexus which will have no bloatware and easy to upgrade….if a normal IME is supporting their devices for 2 years (motorola)…why shouldn’t google…its like google indirectly stating IME’s that don’t support after 2 years….there are many people who still loves and uses nexus 4 due to screen size and cost
