Well, 8 days after the first part came through, I'm now downloading the full Marshmallow upgrade.
It's telling me it may take up to 45 minutes to install! I'm hoping that's for an older, slow phone than the N6.

Will install and pop back in a few days.

Hi,

 

Vodafones policy is Firmware Statement

 

 

"When will the update be available?

As above, there are a number of factors which influence a release date. This means we can’t give a date - even an estimate would often change. "

 

 

I hope you get some information soon. 

Current Phone > Samsung Note 9 _512Gb > Model: SM-N960 Hybrid-Duos.

Samsung One Ui  / Pie.

 

Samsung Gear s3 Frontier Watch.

Hi, I've just received the first 'M' update which is a precursor for the full update.

In 'about phone my build number is: LMY48T which is' part 1'.

I know from having previous Nexus phones that the updates are sent out in batches and Google monitor bugs etc in each release, I appear to be receiving updates pretty quickly with this phone so I will update the thread again as soon as I get part 2.

Hi all, thanks for this. Stuck with nexus phones for years as stock android is excellent, but every release Vodafone are always slower than every other network.

Just got LMY48TT today.... So fingers crossed!

Thanks again!

I know I said I'd be back in a few days but I thought I'd pass on that Android 6 appears to support USB OTG.

I have a 32 GB N6 so use a 64GB dual connector memory stick with an app called Nexus Media Importer. When I connected the stick for the first time since update, the OS recognised the external memory and allowed me to explore the memory without having to launch the nexus media app.

Just read this message then I got the notification! Thanks ks for the info!

How are you finding it on the 6 so far?

Smoother transitions, a few new features, but the battery life has been the most obvious and noticeable improvement.
Will do a bit of digging on the USB OTG thing too, if it's fully supported that'd be great but don't recall reading about it prior to the update.
