Already tried below options

  • fastboot -S 2048M flash system system.img

  • Sounds like something is wrong with the system.img file. Could the download have been corrupted? – Dan Hulme Jun 29 '16 at 8:32
  • same commands working for build : 6.0.1 (MTC19V) from developers.google.com/android/nexus/images#sojus – elinus Jun 29 '16 at 9:02
  • It's probably not the command. Bet it's something that's to do with the system.img itself. Did you do a md5 checksum verification on what's available on the download page vs what you have? – blueren Jun 29 '16 at 9:41
  • Verified checksum, it is still not working. – elinus Jun 30 '16 at 4:53
