    Good question, it can actually take a bit depending on Google. First they push out the update to testers, then the ota file to manually flash (some times they swap that order), then they slowly push it via ota. I would say just keep hitting the check update in settings on the daily if you choose to just wait it out for Google to push the OTA.

    According to multiple sources, the update isn't yet available for 6p's on Verizon.

    No idea how they get away with that with an unlocked phone, but rumor has it that Verizon has now taken control of those updates. Makes no sense to me, unless they baked that into their Pixel exclusivity deal &/or are adding support for wifi calling or advanced calling or something...

    As my brother from another mother said. 6P updated aren't happening on Verizon.

    You're the one who spotted the rumor that vzw may be controlling them now.

    Even if that's the case, I can't believe they're holding it after making a big deal about pushing Pixel updates when Google does.

    Way to turn a great phone into the Galaxy Nexus 2.0...

    I know but I was reiterating the fact that we are getting hosed.

    I'm about to sideload it and tell vzw to pound it. Others have without issues.

    The only difference should be the radios, so technically just down load the factory image, unzip image file and then just flash as follows.
    Go into settings and click oem unlock.
    reboot into bootloader

    fastboot flashing unlock (unlock the bootloader which will wipe data)


    fastboot flash bootloader (copy and paste bootloader from file into adb terminal)
    fastboot flash recovery (c&p recovery.img file)
    fastboot flash boot (c&p boot.img file)
    fastboot flash system (c&P system.img file)

    fastboot flashing lock to re-lock.

    Basically flash everything but the radios.


    With all that said, I am sure people would rather just wait vs going through the headache and having to wipe their data.

    Yeah. While I don't mind flashing stuff, I shouldn't have to just to get the same update that other versions of my phone are getting.

    Or just grab an att sim/tmobile/google fi sim for free and/or go on wifi (key is to remove the vzw sim), grab and install the ota, then put the vzw sim back in.

    Yes it is stupid that VZW is involving themselves in the process and Google is letting them just to sell pixel phones. Man this is so familiar, can we say "galaxy nexus"?

    Google learned from their ways after the galaxy nexus and released two awesome unlocked phones in the nexus 4 and 5, caved again for the nexus 6, went back unlocked for nexus 6P (so it seemed), then caved for the pixel.

    In or out Google, either be for the people or roll over like a lap dog. Yet still Apple managed to push otas just fine without VZW or any carrier interference. I was hoping when Google went Pixel that meant the same but nope, the more things change the more they stay the same.

    With the new NMF26F update for the 6P, despite it saying that it supports all carriers except Verizon isn't exactly true. Ive built my latest ROM on NMF26F, and I'm on Verizon with ZERO issues. Literally NOTHING is broken. So why bother to say it doesn't work for VZW if it actually DOES? That doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

    I bought the 6P after dealing with the GNex confident I wouldn't have that happen again... Looks like I was wrong to trust Google. Unacceptable.
