Android 6.0 OTA Update Is Here

android 6 marshmallowAt last, my ISP has pushed an OTA Android 6.0 update to my LG Nexus 5 (yeah, the one with the cracked screen)

So the update itself took a good 40 minutes to complete and when it was done, the very first thing I did was check out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow Easter Egg. And guess what?

It blows.

It’s identical to the Android 5.0 Lollipop Easter Egg, which is just a lame homage to Flappy Bird. This time it’s simply re-skinned with marshmallow themed obstacles. Unimpressed.

As for the Android 6.0 update? After installing the update, my phone was almost as hot as the sun. I guess upgrading was just too much excitement for it.  So, I rebooted and it cooled down. No real issues since then.

One change that took a little while to figure out was the USB mount option. Before upgrading to Marshmallow, I could simply plug in my Nexus 5 to my laptop and it would be instantly recognized as a USB device. Transferring music and files was easy. Well, no more.

How to Activate File Transfer on Android 6 (Marshmallow)

With Marshmallow, activating file transfer options is a 2-step process:

  1. Plug in your phone
  2. Open notifications (swipe down) and touch “USB Charging – Touch For More Options”
  3. Select Transfer Files (MTP)

So it’s a 3-step process. That should do it.
