Are we allowed by our kind masters to receive this precious update over the air without using a wifi connection?
Just do a manual update according to the first method on the support page, as soon as the link is updated to the Android 6 version:
The explanation is a bit wordy, but basically: click link, save file, open file with updater.
Since it appears to be so simple, why is there no option in the updater to do so inside the updater app?
I think it’s intentional to prohibit updates via mobile network, to avoid causing huge network bills.
That for sure. Personally I wouldn’t mind the download of the “small” update which is only a few hundred MB.
But when I am on the go my battery is often not strong enough for the update so I need to wait to get home/to the office anyway…
