Owners of the Google/Motorola Nexus 6 on T-Mobile will be getting a happy surprise starting today. It looks like the latest version of Android Lollipop 5.1 is pushing out to that device. This is build LMY47M, and is a hefty 409MB in size, so you will probably want to update over WiFi. As a refresher, this is what this update brings to the table:

  • small tweaks to Lollipop
  • new “anti-theft” security features that prevent unauthorized use after a factory reset
  • new quick toggles and animations
  • several bug fixes
  • VoLTE (WiFi calling is expected in a later update)

Sound off if/when you get this update and let us know what you think, and don't forget to check head over to our dedicated Nexus 6 section here: Nexus 6 Android Forum at DroidForums.net

CyanogenMod 12 Changes Flashing Policy For Nexus 6 After 5.1 Update Due To Bricks!

It seems that a few folks over at XDA have found themselves in an unfortunate situation after having accepted the 5.1 update on their Nexus 6 and flashing an older rom. Some roms automatically flash bootloaders and radios to ensure that all rom users have the same experience overall. This is done mostly for debugging purposes. If the developer knows that all users of XYZ rom are running N bootloader and E radio then they can rule out an old outdated bootloader, and focus on the issue at hand. This has been a pretty widely accepted practice for Rom developers to include this auto flash in their install scripts.

This practice also caused a few Nexus 6 bricks. Apparently due to the new security features in 5.1 you are unable to flash back to a previous bootloader. Once you have flashed the 71.08 bootloader or any newer bootloader, attempting to revert to an older bootloader places your device in the Qualcomm bootloader mode. Since it was discovered that Cyanogen was causing bricks for those who updated the Cyanogen has actually changed the way the installer works for nightlies going forward. The installer includes a check that will make sure you are running a compatible bootloader. It will flash the rom only unless it sees that you are running a compatible bootloader. If you have managed to brick your device head to the link below for the fix.

If you use any Nexus devices you probably are already pretty familiar with Clean Rom Roms by ScottsRoms. These roms bring a full stock rom experience with higher performance and greater stability. The latest rom released by ScottsRoms is CleanRom 2 and it brings Scotts Android 5.1 build to the Nexus 6.

Scott had released a stock rooted version of 5.1 earlier in the week which I am currently running on my Nexus 6 now and loving, but the CleanRom will be even better since it is optimized for pure performance. This rom features the aroma installer which allows you to pick and choose the experience you want including which apps are preinstalled and which are left out giving the user full control. This rom is also prerooted. Other features include your choice of launcher, choice of gapps, free tether support, fs trim on reboot, native power menu, clear all recent apps as standard, and more! Grab this rom now from the link below.
