    Got the OTA update a couple of hours back. Installed it on my Nexus 5 and am quite happy playing with it for the last half hour or so.

    I couldn't wait! I flashed my Nexus 7, then I flashed the ElementalX kernel the next day (along with SuperSU beta 2.50) so I could have root.

    Got it on my N5.

    Only thing I can't find is screen rotation settings. Have updated to allow System UI tuner.

    Any tips?

    I'm not sure if the settings are the same on the N5 as on the N7.

    On my N7, it's in settings>device>display.

    The home screen rotation is a feature of Android tablets, not phones. You'll need an app to do that. http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...ml#post4321136

    Sure I read on Android Pit that all marshmallow devices will rotate.

    Not a great difference really imo. Screen rotation is also on the slide down quick settings. Home screen doesn't rotate but I thought that was an apple copyright anyway?
    Battery life seems better on my N5. It spends 8 hours stuck in my work locker with no signal apart from on my breaks. Had at least 10%-15% more charge at home time.

    B Diddy, I've always been weeks behind before today so don't give up hope!

    This phone was a gift from a friend of mine who is a Google employee, I would like to think that this little fact might have had something to do with me getting the OTA update so quickly. Meanwhile my Nexus 7 sits there waiting for the update:-)

    Just got the notification and installed. Not much different so far in the UI, but some new and interesting stuff in settings.

    That got pulled out. They had enabled rotation in the Google Launcher during Preview 2 and 3.. but they removed the feature from the final released version.

    Hi.

    The "screen lock disabled" features is not longer working. Anyone with the same issue?

    I hate to put the unlocked pattern every time, i just use that when i'm out in the streets but in my home or my office, the screen lock disabled worked like a charm in lollipop.

    Well I sideloaded 6.0 something I am never doing again. It was not easy. I knew off the bat I would have to erase everything. No big deal as all my photos and stuff is backup up on my PC and the cloud. First using the Nexus Root Toolkit kept failing complaining about image.sys missing. Then looking up online there was a step by step video on Techno Buffalo which explained how to do it except the instructions were only for the mac. Boy was I ticked off. Come on Android helpful and you only have mac instructions and no Windows instructions. What is wrong with these people if you are on a mac just use a fruit phone where you can easily get updates day one, full backup through iTunes and easy restore.

    Anyway I found a excellent site actually explaining how to sideload it on Windows. It was for the development preview so there was a few minor command lines I had to type in different just the names of the files. Great got it loaded. Downloaded, configured and added all my music and photos and I was done until I realized that I only had about 8gb of storage and I had a total of 23gb when it should be around 58gb. Looked it up online and I was ticked off again when the only solution was to type more command lines and erase everything on my device. I did that and had to start all over. First making sure that my 64gb phone was not 32gb. It was 64gb so I reinstalled everything again first re-locking the boot loader so I am not tempted to do this crap again. Also reading after that a unlocked boot loader can cause issues.

    Now everything is set up again and I will just wait for any OTA updates that stupid Google decides to push whenever they feel like it.

    Sorry to hear that. Smart lock is still working for me on marshmallow.

    Flashed the factory image onto my Nexus 6 on Wednesday, together with SuperSU 2.51 and ElementalX. The version of ElementalX I first used had an issue where it couldn't read from or write to /system, which caused Titanium Backup to fail. Updated the kernel yesterday, and the problem has been resolved.

    I like the improved "Do Not Disturb" mode. I've been using the Priority mode with Lollipop extensively. You can now create your own DND schedules, and you can turn it on/off from the quick pulldown menu. That's useful.

    All I know is that after sideloading 6.0 I now hate the words "root", "rooting" "unlock bootloader", "mac", "apple".

    However the 6.0 update runs really good. Standby mode is much better than it use to be but the big plus is that calls on T-Mobile voLTE no longer sound like they are coming from a tin can or underwater. They are no longer scratchy.

    As for my Nexus 7 (2013) tablet did not get 6.0 yet just a 5.1.1 security update I will wait as long as it takes.

    What's been using it? Mine has improved dramatically and it has seemingly got better every day since I installed it.
    Left work today with 80%, my mate with a 6 on lollipop had 53%. Same usage times too.

    Just realized the reason why I did not get the OTA update is because T-Mobile did not push the 6.0 update yet. It says on the T-Mobile site that it has not been approved yet. The version I flashed 6.0 was from Google yet my phone is working great. I am still getting voLTE and the calls are clear now. Also my reception is great. My question is will I still be able to get any OTA updates again? I am not sideloading any updates and if I have to unlock the bootloader again because updates won't until I think I will get rid of this phone and go to the competition. Thanks.
