This morning Android 6.0 Marshmallow (or just Android Marshmallow, if you prefer), was revealed by Google. With this big reveal game the final SDK for the system as well as Android Marshmallow Preview 3 (after M 2 and M 1) for several Nexus devices. For those of you that own the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 9, or Nexus Player, you’re in luck. Remember that these downloads are recommended for developers only and should be treated as such.
To attain each of the Nexus downloads, you’ll want to head to the following links. You’ll find agreements needing to be agreed to by Google before you hit each of the following links, so be aware of that too. Before you install any of the following, make sure you’ve taken all of your important documents and photos or anything you want to keep intact off of the device. Keep it safe.
• Nexus 5 (GSM/LTE) “hammerhead” hammerhead-MPA44G-preview-3fff4cf7
• Nexus 6 “shamu” shamu-MPA44G-preview-6ad5fb56
• Nexus 9 “volantis” volantis-MPA44G-preview-7ff8343a
• Nexus Player “fugu” fugu-MPA44G-preview-f9cc2862
Each of these devices will need to have files downloaded and uncompressed, then install will need to be done by Google’s ADB toolset. Head over to Android Developers for instructions.
