Android 6.0 rollout announced and factory images live for Nexus 5, 6, 7, 9, and Nexus Player

Google has announced that OTA rollouts have started, but we have yet to hear any reports that users are getting those updates. Of course, not all Nexus devices are on the update list. Factory images have been posted for the Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 7 (2013), Nexus 9, and Nexus Player. This leaves out the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012), and Nexus 10, and so far there is no indication that any of these devices will be seeing Android 6.0 any time soon.
If you want to grab a factory image to do a clean install for your device, just head to the source. Otherwise, sound off in the comments when you start to see the OTA update making it to your Nexus. And, if you do get Marshmallow today, let us know what you think of the new features, like Now on Tap.

I followed the steps mentioned in the Google factory download page, but I get the below errors when I run flash-all script from windows ! Any one succeeded flashing without errors ?

The guys over at xda will help you for sure. I would normally be able to help but I've been out of the game for a bit. Are you running a custom rom right now? Might be preventing you due to custom boot/recovery.

Can you redo the battery test for the Nexi and in particular the Nexus 5, Android 6.0 should bring battery life improvements

Anybody want a "Bricked by Lollipop" Nexus 7 2013 paperweight to fix (for $200) and try 6.0 on?

$200 for a bricked Nexus 7? You can pick up a brand new one for $150 that actually works.

Note 4 got a much better update. It got the touch wiz lollipop that is light years ahead of touch wiz kit kat. If it's anything like my Tab S2 that flies with the Exynos 5433 it would be the best update since project butter. It's like getting project butter twice. I am not sure about the SD805 note 4 but the Exynos note 4 should be just as smooth as the GS6 and Note 5 now after the lollipop update. Not sure why you are complaining. Stock android hasn't changed much since ics and what they did add other skins have been doing it, sometimes better, for ages. I am sure Sony and LG deep sleep tricks are more refined than Googles by now. And the wake stuff is probably done better on moto kit kat devices.
