Nexus 6 Marshmallow update ETA?

Hi, I understand the update is being rolled out in stages,  but  can anyone give an approximate ETA for the AT&T specific build of Android 6;0 Marshmallow? (I have already installed the prerequisite October security update, build LMY48W).

 

Thanks

Did you flash it, or did you sideload it?

Sideload but I was already on the latest build.

Also, if you did sideload it, which OTA zip file did you use? Considering there is none for LMY48W --> MRA58K.

So you did not go from LMY48W to MRA58K? Cause that's my main concern. There is a OTA build path for each branch (carrier or type) and the OTA from LMY48W to Marshmallow hasn't been released. Though the Marshmallow builds are unified, I'm assuming that AT&T hasn't pushed it out yet cause it has to make some changes and/or fixes? In which case, me sideloading any MRA58K could cause weird functionality within my Nexus 6 (dropped signals, wifi signals etc). Only reason I'm holding off on sideloading (do not want to flash since I do not have an unlocked bootloader and will lose all my data)

Like I said I was on the latest posted build on the android dev site.  I dont know why people wait for the update.  Unless there not bootloader unlocked.  I unlocked mine the day I bought it.  Knowing that it wipes all my data.  I just flash everything but the data.img.

 

I was not on 48W as I was not on ATT update schedule thats where the problem comes in.  well at least going forward marshmallow will be unified.

I did not unlock my bootloader because a year ago when I purchased my device, I had no idea that AT&T would inexplicably delay updates released by Google for upwards of a month.  At this point, I do not want to wipe my device.  I just want AT&T to get out of the way and let me enjoy updates from Google.  AT&T, you are not a device-maker, and your software is either terrible or pure bloat.

 

Again, literally every single other carrier in the US has allowed this update to be released to their users.  AT&T is the only one who has not.  There are only two possibilities at this point: 1. They are incompetent because it is taking them weeks longer than every other carrier to perform this task; or 2. They just don't care.  If the answer is 2, then I'll just move my lines to another carrier.  If there is a legitimate reason for this delay, which I cannot imagine there is, they should at least provide it.

Exactly, the problem comes in when the person is on the 48W build path and does not want to factory reset their phones by unlocking the bootloader

the first update in december was 3 weeks behind google.  The next several were 2 to 3 weeks behind.

It is really sad that - it is taking so long for both AT&T and Google - to get out the update for Nexus 6 AT&T model. It shows what Android lacks compared to Apple's iOS.
