How to Update Bootloader/Vendor/Radio to MMB29P on Rooted Nexus 6P!

howto-update-bootloader-nexus6p-mmb29p

For those of you with a rooted Nexus 6P you will want to manually update your bootloader, vendor, and radio to MMB29P since you won’t be able to take updates anymore. You will need to do this to install latest custom ROMs like CM13 otherwise you will end up in a nasty bootloop, which happened to me all day yesterday.

So, just do this before you install any of the latest Android 6.0.1 custom ROMs and/or if you end up in a bootloop while installing a custom ROM.

And for those of you not rooted, simply update your OS to latest and you will have the latest MMB29P.  You can do this on Windows, Mac, or Linux.  For Chromebook, you can grab ADB app for it and use that instead.

Files you will need:

For Windows, you will need to download drivers – Link (no drivers required for Mac or Linux)

Download 6p-mmb29p.zip – Link (this is all else you need for Windows, Mac, and Linux, I’ve included fastboot and mmb29p radio, vendor, and bootloader files here)

Commands you need to type in command prompt/terminal.

For Windows/Chromebook:
cd 6p-mmb29p
fastboot flash vendor vendor.img
fastboot flash radio radio-angler-angler-02.50.img
fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-angler-angler-02.45.img

For Mac:
cd 6p-mmb29p
chmod 755 *
./fastboot-mac flash vendor vendor.img
./fastboot-mac flash radio radio-angler-angler-02.50.img
./fastboot-mac flash bootloader bootloader-angler-angler-02.45.img

For Linux:
cd 6p-mmb29p
chmod 755 *
sudo ./fastboot-linux flash vendor vendor.img
sudo ./fastboot-linux flash radio radio-angler-angler-02.50.img
sudo ./fastboot-linux flash bootloader bootloader-angler-angler-02.45.img

    I am using the Nexus 6p on verizon and I have not done the MMB29P update yet. Should I uninstall Xposed framework prior to updating my phone the way you have outline?
