Hope that someone creates a zip to flash...
My USB port is not reliable, and i'm kind of lazy.

It booted !!! took what it felt like about 10-15 minutes (wasn't watching the clock, only my Flo's screen). Runing the Setup Wizzard now.

Feels snappy. I will be entertained for the next couple of hours

Can someone test if there is kind of the multiwindow feature that we saw in the M Previews?

I have installed it using the app flashfire beta by chainfire. Still booting up but since it shows the android m boot animation, looks like a success

Installed fine for me, booted in what felt like a normal amount of time.

Problems may have begun trying to root though.

Use NRT... first problem: it didn't actually copy the root files over so when it rebooted into TWRP they weren't there. I just rebooted and manually copied them over, then back into TWRP and I was able to install them. But, now I'm sitting here at the startup animation for about 10 minutes now, far longer than after initial install, so I'm starting to think boot loop.

I'll give it a few more minutes and then re-flash the system partition, should get it working again. NRT naturally doesn't know about this version yet, using the *.*.* option, but I'm starting to get the feeling root isn't straight-up on M. I'll repost if it happens to start up, but anyone else try rooting yet? If so, how'd it go for you?

EDIT: Another thread seems to support the conclusion that root isn't working yet, someone else had a boot loop too (something to do with stock recovery replacing TWRP and TWRP trying to save itself, or some such).
