    I take it you mean the LYZ28M security update not full-blown Marshmallow, MRA58K, right?

    It's good to know that these OTAs are actually starting to show up regardless.

    It's not 6? But when I looked at the notification, it said software update to 6.

    I've done it a lot. My best recommendation, especially for a first timer, is to read up on it (a couple links below) but to then use a toolkit, such as this one: Nexus Root Toolkit v2.0.5 | WugFresh - this simplifies the process to a great extent. The most challenging part honestly is getting your drivers set up correctly. Once that is done, the rest is just following direction.

    If you are using WugFresh's toolkit, there are plenty of YouTube videos to walk you through it.
    I just loaded mine using this. Works good!

    I would say the same, possibly a slight improvement on #3
    I agree with 1 and 2. So far so good!

    Anyone on Verizon flash the new image yet? I might go for it tonight. Already flashed my Nexus 9 wifi.

    Google seems to be pushing out one last update for Android 5.1.1 for the Nexus 6 devices across the different model numbers (last security or stagefright 2 update perhaps?) and after that it'll be the 6.0 update, don't know about the other carriers but Tmobile is stating by end of week for their Nexus 6 models,fingers crossed!

    Got my security/stability update yesterday (Verizon) and am hoping for 6.0 after the new Nexus devices ship. *This is only what I'm hoping for and have nothing to go by.*

    I flashed my N6 on Verizon as soon as the factory images went live. All is well.

    Given I got my phone on Monday and forgot to unlock it, I just unlocked it and flashed it for a clean install yesterday (I'm on Sprint).

    At work, I didn't notice much difference yesterday in battery life, though the % indicator in the battery was nice (still small though, so I'll keep Battery Widget Reborn). However, I've had today off. So far in 4 hours of use, I've had the screen on for 38 minutes, and just hit 89% battery life while I'm typing this. Then again, I'm fairly aggressive with power saving, and may not have fixed all of it yesterday (I did reboot the phone last night for the first time as it looked to have unusually high OS battery pull, but I just reloaded a bunch of stuff on it, so hardly average usage on Thursday). Today is more of my typical usage, and I'm quite happy.

    The other stuff is minor, and some stuff I'm not sure if it's N6 over N5 differences or Marshmallow over Kit Kat differences. GMail is automatically sorting out some of my store offers and social media stuff, as well as grouping conversations, and I don't recall it doing that on the Nexus 5 (though I was using the old Email app till they took it away from me, so that may be part of the issue), though it did that on the 6 pre-M. Customizing the drop down shade options was nice too, let me save a bit of room for what I use it for, and nothing else.

    I used to get maybe 3 hours SOT. This is significantly better. Settings all same as before.

    I loaded the factory image last night. Can't get a good sense of battery but so far it seems to discharge less when not in use.

    It's hard to tell though since I think the phone had been through so many updates and other software install/uninstall abuse that the lag and battery burn could have been that.

    Definitely have a nice snappy phone again that's running nicely.

    Question. I want to try the default launcher config (I saw it when I first booted before locking the bootloader) but once I had it import my old Nexus 6 backup settings the home screen I configured popped up (background and folders).

    Any idea how to clear the Now launcher settings? I don't see a clear data option for the launcher app.

    If you're going the fastboot route and are flashing the images, then you won't need to wipe your data. Just don't flash the userdata.img and all of your pics and sms/mms will still be there.
    And leaving userdata intact gives no issues? Is it safe to do this?

    I've only ever flashed all but userdata on incremental updates-- i.e, 5.1 to 5.1.1 or 5.1.1 to 5.1.1. Those are small updates, and still within lollipop so userdata is pretty compatible. I'm kind of worried that not wiping userdata when going to a new OS version might break things.

    Flashed it Monday. Doze is the real deal! Battery life is great but standby time is outstanding. Really a great feature!

    Pretty amazing battery life so far. Only 1h15m screen time, but a lot more call time than I usually have.

    Hey guys, after how long does the doze kick in? I'm still waiting for the OTA and I've read that greenify is basically obsolete now with 6.0

    Why tap to wake? Every time I pick it up it wakes up. I don't even have to touch it! Aren't you using Ambient Display. It's way better than tap 2 wake imo.
    Disagree. Hate Ambient Display.
