Nexus 6 Stock Image

Even though the Nexus 6 is locked to AT&T, will it still accept the Stock Images provided by Google since AT&T does no mods to the system and everything is AOSP and Hardware level? Or will I have to wait for OTAs? Also, can AT&T hold updates even though they are coming from Google? Or do the updates not go through them?

1. att does hold the updates back by about 4 weeks.

 

2.  You can flash stock boot images but you have to unlock your bootloader.

 

3.  The updates still come from google but ATT is a little slower getting them out.  This does not mater if its a att nexus 6 or one from google store or moto store.  The updates are held for those as well.

 

4.  The only thing ATT has done is add a boot splash and ringtones that are stored in the OEM partition on the phone.  You can root and delete the OEM partition.
