    If you are beginning to get a bit anxious for the Marshmallow official roll out you will be happy to know that our sources are giving us a date of October 5th. This is when you can expect an official OTA update from Google for your Nexus 5 or Nexus 6. Google is set to show off the new Nexus 6P and 5X on September 29th. Maybe we will also see these devices on sale or who knows maybe even shipped by October 5th!

    If you are rooted you can't flash the factory images unless you unroot first. Usually the Dev of your rom will have the update before it's available to flash from the factory images.

    I was rooted to flash a custom Kernel which I did. Still running stock 5.1.1. I have the bootloader locked once again. Can I simply disable SuperSU, flash (or receive the OTA update) then enable root again (if I need) ?

    Why do you want to go to all that effort? Like Grant advised, just contact the author of your custom rom and ask about an update to that.

    If You're running a custom kernel with a locked bootloader you still need to go back to stock to receive any OTA. Us the Nexus Root Toolkit if you don't want to manually do it.

    Bad things will happen if you don't.
