Download and Install Nitrogen OS 8.1 Oreo On Nexus 6P: Nexus 6P was the last Nexus device which was released in 2015 with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It comes with some awesome specs and features which made this a very popular device. The device is very popular among the developers as well. The device has been getting regular support from the developers.
Nexus 6P has received all the popular custom ROMs based on Android 8.1 Oreo which is an awesome thing. We all know that Google is great at releasing major updates to its older devices but Nexus 6P is now a 3 years old device, so it is not going to get the Android 9 (P) update which means users have to depend on Custom ROMs.
But thanks to these custom ROMs users can now enjoy the latest offering from Google. Recently another Custom ROM named Nitrogen OS is made available for Nexus 6P. The Custom ROM is based on Android 8.1 Oreo source code. The ROM is in its initial development stage so there may be few bugs present but in future updates, the developers will fix all the bugs. But for now, we don’t recommend users to use this ROM as their daily driver. We like to thank Blackjubel, Senior Member of Xda for sharing Nitrogen OS 8.1 Oreo ROM For Nexus 6P.
