Google released the latest update for their current Nexus devices yesterday and the inevitable rollout of over-the-air updates has begun. The Nexus 5X, 6P, 7 (2013), Player and 9 have all started receiving the update so we’ve rounded up the list and you can now side-load them if you can’t wait for the prompt to update.

One note regarding the Nexus 6P is that the links provided don’t account for the OTA update from MMB29N to MMB29M for Telstra users – though as we know now, the latest update does include the fixes for Telstra customers. But we need the link for the OTA update for those users. The process of capturing an OTA update is fairly simple and we’ve outlined the process here, once you’ve grabbed the URL for the update file for your Nexus share it with us so everyone can benefit.

Applying an OTA update to your Nexus device with an OTA update is fairly simple, and you can follow our handy guide here.

So, if your OTA update is below feel free to grab them directly from the Google servers and apply them:

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.

My nexus 6P has got the over the air update from Google this morning!

Nexus 7 WiFi (2013) update fails – I get the broken Android on the recovery screen. I haven’t tried doing it manually yet.


My 5 had the notification this morning. All updated and ready to go! 🙂

My Nexus 7 wifi got the OTA update this morning (model MMB29K). Still waiting for the Nexus 5X (but won’t be flashing).


My Nexus 6P is on MMB29N….

Sounds like that’s an even later version than the OTA which is on 29M?

29N is 6.0 based, 29M is 6.0.1. Weird, but it’s how it is.

So for those of us on MMB29N will we receive the OTA update shortly or do we have to manually flash the update to be on the same update path as everyone else? And if this is the case going forward we will still receive the OTA updates in the future if we have manually flash this update? Sorry just a bit confused, never had a Nexus before. 🙂
