Android has received the recognition of a hero with its amazing operating systems that have been installed in millions of devices around the world. Its latest OS, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow, is one aesthetically built system both on the inside and outside with amazing features and tweaks to pre-existing ones. Besides Nexus 5X and 6P, the operating system is set to freely roll out on more modern devices. Every OS update is made available through your phone’s manufacturer. For a number of mobile devices, this OS will take some time before they can get it as their manufacturers will have to test their compatibility first among other factors. For those who feel they can’t wait, there are other ways to get this amazing OS. First thing is to check the compatibility of your device with the OS. However, this process requires much caution. Second step is to back up your device since you will wipe out everything. Go to ‘Back up and Restore’ on your Settings then ensure you check both ‘Back up my data’ and ‘Automatic Restore’. After this, enable debug mode when the USB is connected then download 15 seconds ADB Installer that will help in adding the OS to your device. When this is done, download the OS then flash it onto your device. That’s just an overview of the process for the software gurus. In case of details, be sure to get them in handy from Google.
