    I was running stock 7.0, and between all this 7.1 upgrade/downgrade and the sluggish performance of my phone, I was seriously considering getting a galaxy s8 next month.

    After several years of running stock (I used custom roms a lot when I had an HTC desire), I finally decided to unlock the bootloader and install a custom rom (pure nexus), and I couldn't be happier with the result. I am now confident I can keep my N6 until the Pixel 2 is out.

    So for anyone wondering what to do with their N6 and running stock, I highly recommend a custom rom!

    Definitely! It brings a new life to the phone.

    If you're interested test out the DARK ROM I posted about (it is stable). It has the same look and feel as Pure Nexus (based on AOSP) but it is based on Lineage OS and updates OTA. I heard Pure Nexus will stop officially developing for the N6 once 7.1.2 comes out (which is very soon).

    Quite right, Pure Nexus is so great, what GApps version do you recommend?
    Thanks,

    Yeah, a couple developers on XDA are already saying that they've stopped developing for the N6 because of difficulties related to making 64-bit-specific software work on 32-bit machines. Nobody seems 100% certain that development will cease--I'm mean developers apparently live to argue with one another--but it looks like we're not going to know if Shamu will get any sort of bespoke Android O love until a full build of O gets released to AOSP in the fall. That uncertainty (along with the as yet unexplained official downgrading of the 6 to 7.0) may well slam the brakes on a lot of development for our beefy beast. Could be nothin' but security updates til the bitter end.

    I don't know about older versions but the latest one has the gapps already included, so no need to flash them separately.
