If you want to use an optimized and enjoy a lot of amazing features that you can’t find within a Stock ROM then you will need to install a custom ROM. We have some good news that the latest version of the most popular Resurrection Remix is now available for Nexus 6. This Resurrection Remix ROM is based on the newest Google’s mobile OS Android 8.1 Oreo. So Android 8.1 Oreo-based Resurrection Remix ROM is official now for Nexus 6. You can now install Resurrection Remix Oreo on Nexus 6.
The Resurrection Remix is one of the most popular aftermarket ROMs available for dozens of Android devices from major OEMs. It has earned a good name because of its stability, good performance and decent battery backup. To describe appropriately, the ROM is a remix of the best feature found in LineageOS, AOKP, SLiMROM, OMNI and the original Resurrection builds. Thus, it is a pleasant amalgamation of performance, customization, power and new features in a single package for a range of Android devices.
Installing a custom ROM requires your Nexus 6 to be bootloader unlocked and running a custom recovery like TWRP. Bootloader could be simply unlocked using the fastboot oem unlock command while your Nexus 6 is in fastboot/bootloader mode.
I recommend users of this rom to be on the latest firmware and Hboot for the 8.1.0 Oreo Platform, even though it still works without.
