My goodness gracious, it’s been a hectic couple of weeks in the Android world. We had the Google event in San Francisco prior to the public release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. CyanogenMod modders pounced on the sugar and started working on the 13th iteration of their firmware. And all of this time, we’ve been getting word of phones and phones and phones being promised the jump to 6.0.

The Google Play edition HTC One M8 has been verified by Mo Versi, the company’s Vice President of Product Management, to be on the list. There’s no pinpoint on the calendar, though:

The old Google Play edition phones run stock Android like Nexus devices, but need tweaking to accommodate OEM-included hardware like the Duo camera setup on the One M8.

Next, a bunch of Android One phones are ready to be updated with Marshmallow. If you don’t want to wait and you have the following phones, you can click the links on them and get the software package manually.

Finally, we have news that the Nexus 4, a phone too old for Google to be willing to support, can also have a piece of the fluff. One Dmitry Grinberg has posted instructions on how to put together your own Android 6.0 build for the Nexus of 2012. Grinberg has also made available his image for you to load on his site at the second source link below.

That’s ten phones’ worth of Marshmallow there. Enjoy.
