My tablet (Nexus 9) downloaded and installed the android nougat over the air about a month back. But not my phone (Nexus 6p). It just upgraded to another version of Android 6 yesterday. Is it expected or something wrong?


I did some research and basically you need to give it a few days, if that doesn't help try flashing it. Here's a guide https://www.gottabemobile.com/2016/09/09/how-to-install-android-7-0-nougat-right-now/

  • +1, but a warning to OP: you will need an unlocked bootloader. If you haven't, unlocking it will wipe all your data. Using the flash-all.sh script also wipes your data. If you're not sure about diving into this then just wait for the staged rollout to come to you. – Andy Yan Sep 16 '16 at 6:11
  • Thanks. I am not that eager to flash or mess with complicated stuffs like bootloading or jailbreaking. I can wait, but the question was merely out of curiosity. I thought if Nexus 9 gets the upgrade, then a 6P should get it sooner. – Della Sep 16 '16 at 6:24
