Install ADB & FastbootVerizon and Google are yet to release an OTA update so the only option you are left with is installing it manually. So, to update your Nexus 6P to Android beta, the first thing you should do is install the ADB and Fastboot files on your Desktop.
Download Factory ImagesThe next step is downloading Android Nougat beta factory images from Google’s official website. Click on the link below to get the files.
Enable USB Debugging & Developer optionsEnabling USB Debugging & Developer options are important actions since we must use them to flash the factory images and unlock the device bootloader.
Activate OEM UnlockingGo to the Settings and tap to the ‘Developer options’ menu. Enable the switch next to OEM unlocking. This allows you to flash the update and unlock your bootloader.
Reboot to Fastboot and unlock the Device BootloaderUnlock the device bootloader before you start playing with the Nexus 6P’s operating system. This makes sure that you can restore your handset if something goes wrong. Do this before flashing the factory images.
- Connect your smartphone to your PC using the USB data cable
- Open the Terminal or the Command Prompt
- Change the directories to platform-tools folder in your ADB installation directory
- Enter adb reboot bootloader and press Enter
- Wait for the fastboot to boot up and then enter fastboot oem unlock
- Confirm that you wish to unlock your bootloader
FlashType fastboot reboot-bootloader on the command Prompt to reboot. Once you have done that install Android Nougat beta by flashing the factory images with flastboot flash commands. One of the commands is flash-all. Type it and hit enter to install the entire stock firmware.
