Nexus 6 Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update ads to Google's growing list

This week Google has added the original Nexus 6 to their ever-growing list of updates to Android Marshmallow 6.0.1, the newest version of their mobile operating system. This joins the Nexus Player, Nexus 7 2013, Nexus 9 LTE, and Nexus 9 Wi-fi, as well as a bunch of Android One phones internationally. You'll also find Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X on this list, of course. This list is for those that know what's going on with the downloading and the flashing and so forth.

For access to each of the updates on the flash-friendly list for Android 6.0.1, just tap the links below. Each link will send you to a ZIP file which is hosted by Google itself. Each ZIP file will need to be added to your device. If you do not recognize the coded names in the list below, we recommend you just wait for the OTA (over the air) update, which should be coming to you very soon.
