This is an archive of all radios released for shamu (excluding developer preview builds) in recovery flashable format.
All radios are compatible with all variants of Nexus 6, and some have reported better reception using alternate radios.
I have also added the latest bootloader in recovery flashable format.

Usage is very simple:

Copy update zip to internal storage
Reboot into recovery
Install zip
Profit!

Nice work. This is very needed for many and a convenience. Now please pull the radios and make them recovery flashable. No easy task. I looked at the radio.imgs and there are many parts to the Nexus 6. But looks like your the one who can figure it out. Again thanks, this is great.

Can someone please mirror M build? No PC for a week and download always interrupted. TIA
Seriously? The OP posted two links, I'm pulling 5 MB/sec on each (WiFi mode), 1+MB/sec on LTE. No interruptions, download complete.

It seems that one in your predicament would to be thankful that these are here, take counsel of patience, and exercise a bit of resourcefulness such as a jaunt to your local Starbucks or other free WiFi locale.

Encryption? Thanks in advance

For no force encryption, please grab the beta zip in the development section that is specifically for ALL rom flashes...it'll make any kernel no force encrypt every time, just flash that zip last...you'll find it near the end of that section.

1.hahahaha.....
2.dude, chill out I just asked for a mirror
3. .................
Yes, I understand that you can discern my innate level of serenity based on my words...if my reaction seems off-putting to you, well then I'm quite pleased.

You asked for a 2nd mirror.

What you've requested is for a fellow user to download one of these builds, upload it again to their personal storage, make certain that they have a clean download and in turn a clean upload, all so you can grab that which the OP has taken a great deal of time and care to create, post, personally host, and freely give to this community.

In a word, your feckless request is brazen and unreasonable.

    I know you were not the original requestor, but I'm feeling lazy today. I'll create a flashable zip soon. Just need to dust off the N6 and flash first, so maybe give me a day or two.

    As promised, here's 05.34 in flashable zip form: https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=24457741883932835

    @Q9Nap, Stock 7.1.1 is out, is there any changes?

    Thanks for the heads up, was just looking for the update last night.
    Bootloader is still 72.01, but there is a new radio, 05.44, added to the op, enjoy!
    21
    Just added the 05.39 radio from npd90g.
    The bootloader is still 71.21 on this build.
    Making your own recovery flashable radios is pretty much a no-brainer now that google is releasing full otas of all the builds.
    I may deprecate this thread soon, especially considering how OT it has become, just fyi...
    18
    Just added the 71.18 bootloader to the op, enjoy!
    Just fyi, I removed the old ones awhile back as I didn't want to be responsible for people hard bricking their devices...
