    Flashed the images no problem. Got Easy ADB cause I'm on windows. Didn't think this phone could get any better but I'm loving M so far!

    Edit: and long pressing the setting icon does nothing for me.

    Yes. You will still receive an OTA over WiFi without a sim.

    Yes, pull down the notification shade and long press on the settings icon. You'll get a toast notification if it worked.

    The settings icon will also have a small tool icon next to it that appears slightly grayed out.
    I got it. It is called System UI tuner and it is activated by holding down the settings gear on the quick setting shade! Hold it down and it will start spinning and activate the System UI tuner settings. Thanks for the tip! Finally get to see the battery percentage on the battery icon!

    There's no way to go back to stock to get the update?

    Do you have animations etc turned off? I did and put them to .5 and it then worked. Not sure if it related.

    You have to flash stock still.

    I like to describe Android as a tree on a land plot. You buy the land plot (your phone) with the tree already in the land plot. This plant is fairly young (no personal data stored) so now you have to nurture it and give it everything it wants as well as what you desire out of it (self-explanatory). However, you notice a different tree. You want that tree. So you prepare your plot of land to take the tree that you have out, and put a new one in (unlocking the bootloader, different recovery, etc). Then you buy the tree (download the ROM). Now you have to take the tree that came with your land out of the ground and put in a new tree (flashing a custom ROM deletes all data associated with the previous ROM). So now you have to nurture your tree again and make it grow. Of course, the tree that you had before will die if it's not in the ground, so you have to set it on fire (just to make this a little more fun).
    Down the road, you see that the tree that you had before had something specific that you realize you desire. Now you have to go buy the same type of tree (download the image), prepare, etc. and plant the tree.
    **NOTE: You do have to plant a brand new tree; in other words, flashing a different ROM than you currently have installed on your phone WILL delete your data**

    Basically, you've planted a different tree. In order to get to Marshmallow, you need to "replant" stock Android.

    I have AT&T build Lmy48m I didn't wait for the OTA for 5.1 and 5.1.1 from AT&T . I backed up my device removed sim card and did a factory reset and my phone works fine wonder if I can do that with 6.0?

    Using the AC article as a guide I was able to get M on my Nexus pretty easily. I did have to Factory Reset my Moto 360 to reconnect.

    First impressions are that Doze is going to be a God send - 5 and a half hours from coming off charge and I'm still on 87%, I'm usually down to about 60 by now!

    I thought I would start a thread about any Marshmallow bugs we come across since the OTA's are starting to roll out along with the release of factory images.

    The only one that I've found, was when using Swiftkey in Google's Messenger app. For me, the screen flashes while typing and it also does it when I use the quick reply feature.

    Anyone else find any bugs?

    That sounds more like a bug with Swiftkey not being updated for Marshmallow than an actual Marshmallow bug. I'd suggest reporting that to the Swiftkey team to see if they can get that updated if it's on their end.

    You're right, it does seem more of a Swiftkey bug, not Marshmallow.

    Amen, at least for the overnight hours when the phone is perfectly still--motion of any kind appears to be the "death" of Doze. Maybe the App Standby changes will work a similar kind of magic while the phone is physically in-pocket or in-hand.

    It's been in my pocket all day, so not completely motionless.
    I'd say it's in course to last 2, maybe 2 and a half times longer than it did on Lollipop under similar circumstances!

    pardon my noob, but what does that mean? is "Pure Nexus" a specific custom rom named "Pure Nexus"? If so, what does that offer over the Google version?

    Yes, "Pure Nexus" is a custom rom. It gives me extra features not found on a stock install like LED notifications, double tap to sleep, battery %, double tap to wake, just to name a few.

    Well... yeah... in a sense. Doze works on ALL apps, but the phone has to be stationary for Doze to start ramping up. App Standby, on the other hand, is there to take an idle app and puts it into stasis. But this is how they define an idle app a) the user hasn't launched it, b) it doesn't have an active service or c) it generates a notification for the lockscreen or notification shade.

    The first is easy enough to know... but the other two are tricky. A lot of apps have background services as well as generate notifications. Of course, it's best practice to go through and configure apps properly when you install something and only allow notifications from the apps you want to be notified from.

    Though, I am very interested to see what the custom ROM community does with these two. Looking at some white papers, there may be ways to get apps into App Standby quicker than normal... or the phone into Doze more sooner, etc.

    Flashed the image yesterday and so far so good. Using a Project Fi sim. Might do some tweaking later so I can enable multi window.

    I flashed my N5 and N6 last night and so far they're both running great. N6 has wifi calling (T-Mobile) but I don't think VOLTE is there yet.
