Before this marshmallow rollout to the Nexus 6, I was a huge fan of T-Mobile. That is now waning. It's ridiculous that it will soon be 4 *weeks* and we are still waiting.
I don't want to hear about suggestions to side-load. Part of the service I'm paying for is for T-Mobile to pass along updates. I'm not going to take on tasks T-Mobile should have handled.
I also don't want to hear about more T-Mobile testing. Did Google surprise the world with the marshmallow update? No. It was known for a long time leading up to the official release. Whatever T-Mobile is doing should have long been done by the time the rollout was announced.
Notice in the previous paragraph I used the word "whatever"? What IS T-Mobile doing? That's another problem here. We're getting no information whatsoever. Nothing.
T-Mobile, my account has 5 phones on it, do I need go somewhere else?
Agree completely, add the fact they cannot even get their information pages on updates corrected and it makes you wonder what their Engineers are doing. They even have some Samsung device pages saying they are ready to roll with M. Black hole for Customer Service to give us any real facts.
I didn't know about the rollout to the Samsung devices. Ahead (?!) of the Nexus devices?
Someone at Google/T-Mobile needs to gets on the ball and start looking hard into this. Nothing should be getting Marshmallow ahead of the Nexus devices. I purchased my Nexus 6 thru T-Mobile. There is no reason (Is there T-Mobile??? If there is, you sure aren't saying anything!) I shouldn't have this by now.
I can't imagine Google would be happy with their house-brand phones in a line behind Samsung phones.
Yeah true. This will be the last Nexus device purchased through a carrier. The talk that you get updates just as fast as it is from Google is nonsense. No, the carriers still have to test it. Next they'll add boatware to the update. The one benefit from the carrier is paying on time each month but buying up front from Google is the way to go. I also had two Nexus 6's with issues. I am on my third now. T-Mobile was going to replace the second one but we were going on two weeks waiting for the replacement to ship. Nobody had a clue on when it would ship. I told them to forget it.
Agree completely. I paid a LOT OF MONEY for a Nexus 6 phone - BECAUSE it was supposed to get the Android updates RIGHT AWAY. I am currently NOT A HAPPY CAMPER. Between this and the Experian hack, I'm quite down on T-Mobile at the moment.
T-Mobile, are you listening? UPDATE MY PHONE NOW.
I bought my Nexus 6 from Motorola and still don't have the update either. Have tried sideloading but can't get it working.
I bought my phone from Amazon. According to some people, if the phone is unlocked, then we remove the sim, factory reset it and we should get OTA directly from google. I am planning to try this over the weekend. I will let everybody know after that.
I do not have problem of T-mobile testing. But, why they are not letting us know what the hell are they testing. Because of this I am reluctant to sideload it.
Please do let us know! Be interested in doing that if it works.
And I'm with you. If the release is held up, fine, just say so and why.
I was more than fed up with how these updates are being treated. I still have a couple things I have to do, but I've got the side loading to work AND all of my t-mobile services (hotspot, visual voicemail, etc.) have been working with no issue. I honestly recommend a clean install, my issues with battery draining and call dropping have vanished since a clean install.
sylgui I had to play around with some of the files for the fastboot flash. Tutorials listed it one way, but with my MacBook Pro I had to do something a little different.
Also have a MBP so probably the same issue you had.
I have a feeling T-Mobile is skipping the 6 upgrade and will push out one with the newest security update this month.
Let me look at the files I was using. I will report back with my finds ASAP.
Alright so I found the tutorial that I was going by, I mis-spoke when I said I had to change some files around, that was to flash my husband's phone prior to find this tutorial.
I'm willing to bet that the OTA gets pushed with Googles new "monthly" update cycle ... 6.0.1 anyone?
Now the key question, if you are right will that OTA be 4 -6 weeks after they announce it is "rolling out" too? May be a lot of valid reasons why this is late but their communication and customer service process is the worst.
The next security update will be 5.1.1 and build LYZ28N I think.
