LG has been working on delivering the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its devices. Fortunately, there have been several reports that devices such as LG Nexus 5x and LG G3 now have access to the update.


Google has been busy preparing for the release of the Android N but OEMs are still working on the release of the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update on their devices. This time, LG Nexus 5 and LG G3 are now in line to receive the update.

For the LG Nexus 5, the updates come in the form of custom ROMs, the latest of which is the Exodus custom ROM. As with other ROMs, people will need to flash their devices in order to run the update. As with other custom ROMs, it is best to understand the process first before proceeding. Install all the necessary apps and files and make sure there is a recovery tool installed.

It is also best to back up data. Users will also need to enable the USB debugging mode. All Android devices are best flashed with at least 80-85 percent battery charge. Providers of the update will not be held liable for any problems that may arise during the installation.

LG Nexus 5x users can also update the device through the security update released officially by Google. It should come with several bug fixes but the custom ROM offers a different kind of experience. The decision lies on what the user wants.

As for LG G3, Neurogadget reported that Telus should release the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to the said device in a few days. This should be a good sign for users since several days ago, it was also reported that the carrier is already taking out the device from the list of units in line for the firmware. Furthermore, the carrier also reportedly claimed that several phones will also be updated to the firmware. The LG flagship, on the other hand, should have access come March 29. As with other Android updates, it is best to clarify final schedules with carriers and other regional units. Schedules always vary.
