MIUI 7.1 OTA Update Now Rolling Out To Devices, ROM Available To Download

If you own a Xiaomi device, and you probably don't if you live outside of Asia, then you're familiar with MIUI. This build of Android ships on all of the company's devices. 7.0 arrived a couple months ago, and now folks are receiving the first update of 2016, version 7.1.

The update is small, and so are many of the tweaks. The file manager has changed private folders to "Hidden Folders," which let you hide files from view and protect them with a password. The code will be the same one guarding your lockscreen unless you leave your phone unlocked.

The Moto X Play, as it's called, offers a weaker processor but increased battery life compared to the Moto X Pure Edition.

Sprint Sends A Marshmallow OTA Update To The LG G Stylo

Well this is a bit of a surprise. When Sprint launched its carrier-branded version of the LG G Stylo back in June of this year, it didn't garner too much attention - it's just another big-screen, low-price device filling out the mid range, albeit with a somewhat novel built-in stylus. If you were to make a list of the phones you'd expect to see rocking the latest version of Android by the end of 2015, the G Stylo might be just in front of the Kyocera Echo.

[Update: One M9 RUU] HTC Starts Rolling Out Android 6.0.1 To The Unlocked One A9, 6.0 To The One M9

It was merely a couple of weeks ago that Mo Versi announced on Twitter that some Marshmallow goodies were on track for December release on HTC's latest flagships, the One A9 and One M9. Now according to him, the updates are ready to roll out on both devices, just in time for Christmas. I think HTC likes the idea of being the Santa of OTA updates.

The Moto X 2014 Pure Edition (US Version) Is Being Updated To Marshmallow Now

Motorola is swiftly making its way through its Moto X flagship series, upgrading all of them to Android 6.0. Today it's the Moto X 2014 Pure Edition's turn - that's the one that was sold carrier-free in the US on Motorola's website between last fall and this fall. Several Android Police readers, plus posters on Reddit and XDA, say they've been given the over-the-air update as of yesterday. To be clear, we haven't heard anything about the various carrier editions of the Moto X 2014; presumably those will be trickling in over the next few weeks as the carriers run their various tests and certifications.

The Sprint LG G4 Starts Getting An Update To Android 6.0 Marshmallow

When Google released the Marshmallow source code, many manufacturers were quick to jump on the news and start announcing updates to their flagships. In mid-October, LG started rolling out the android OTA in Poland first as a test, with promises to expand to other countries and operators later.

Now that update is ready for the US and Sprint is the first operator to get it. On its support page for the device, Sprint says the update was available yesterday, December 17th. It's rolling out as software version LS991ZV9 with Marshmallow and Sprint Global Roaming. There'll be a lot waiting for you when you jump from Lollipop 5.1 to Marshmallow 6.0, including app permissions, the new floating text selection toolbar with options to expand it through Google Translate or Wikipedia, better external storage integration that should be handy with the G4's MicroSD slot, and so much more.

The Moto X Style (The International One) Is Being Updated To Android 6.0 Too

Earlier this week Motorola began rolling out the official Marshmallow over-the-air update to the Moto X Pure Edition. That's the weird-ass name that Motorola gave the US version of its latest flagship - the international version, which differs only in carrier support, is called the Moto X Style. According to at least one of our readers in the United Kingdom, the Moto X Style is now receiving its Android 6.0 upgrade as well.

The rollout will almost certainly be staggered by territory, so I would imagine that it's propagating across Western Europe at the moment. Other locations will probably follow over the next couple of weeks if they're not being served already.

Motorola Says The Moto X Pure Edition Is Now Being Updated To Marshmallow On Verizon, Sprint, And US Cellular

Owners of the Moto X Pure Edition, ostensibly Motorola's flagship US phone at the moment, should be receiving the over-the-air update to Android 6.0 soon. That's according to Motorola employee David Schuster, who has shed light on upcoming updates many times before. He told his Google+ followers earlier today that the Marshmallow upgrade is currently being sent out to those Moto X Pure Edition phones on Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular. The updates follow shortly after the soak tests from last week.

Recall that the Pure Edition, which is compatible with all five major carriers in the US, is being sold directly from Motorola and isn't being distributed through carriers at all.
