    Of course the downloads page does not have a binary.

    Not yet, but as soon as custom roms based on O start flying, then those will be able to be installed. There won't be an official version for the 6.

    Interwebs says it's not true but I think that it'd be great if Google did update it.

    Yeah, with Nexus 6 no longer on the Android Beta program that news story isn't believable.

    I'll add that my Nexus 7 2012 continued to receive Android updates OTA and the latest several versions were non-functional on that hardware. I had to flash a much older version of Android onto it and reject OTA updates in order for it to work. Back in the day, Windows was similar... you wouldn't want to install the newest Windows on an older PC because the hardware couldn't handle it.

    Not sure if this applies to the Nexus 6 and progressively newer versions of Android or not.

    I've flashed Nitrgen rom on my N6, and it's 8.1.0. The settings within the rom also give you the blinking led lights for emails, texts, calls, etc. It runs great, and smooth as a baby's butt.

    Dark ROM 8.1 r15 (beta) is working well on the N6, so I imagine Linneage 15.1 (which Dark is built from) is also pretty much stable. Downside if you want to use a dark Substatum theme: these LOS Oreo builds are about a month behind, so Oreo's fugly lockscreen gradient issue has come to the Nexus 6.
