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

i have at&t via straight talk and i'm in the same boat.  i got a t-mobile sim from straight talk, did a factory reset, and it did no good.  Once you download the W build you are stuck with it.  I'm still waiting for the OTA update also.  At&t is a complete joke.

if your on another carrier just unlock the thing and flash the right build to your phone.  The only reason you did get updates was because it was a nexus.  Anyother att phone would not get updates at all.

@GLIMMERMAN76 -  Why would AT&T just hold it back if there were no problems - and why would the builds be different for different carriers (LMY48W for AT&T)  ?  At the end of the day - aren't we getting these builds from google.  According to me, AT&T wouldn't hold it back if there were no problems with the Marshmallow for AT&T nexus 6.

 

I consider - Google is also at fault because the whole business model is frustrating for end user like me.

an ATT nexus 6 is the same as a verizon or google play nexus 6 same model numbers.  ATT has a habit of testing os builds for to long.  I got tired of the ATT boot splash on a nexus device and removed it when I first got the phone.

here is the biggest problem that google is resolving with 6.0...  To many builds of the same software.

@GLIMMERMAN76 - I hate doing a factory reset on my phone as i am not so good in organizing things and backing my applications up. Is there a way to work around that ? 🙂

with lollipop google will automaticly reinstall your apps just not the data.  Now with 6.0 it backs it all up.
