Jide’s custom Android build based on Marshmallow is now compatible with both the Pixel C and the Nexus 9 tablets.

Originally intended to run Chrome OS, the Pixel C tablet has just got an interesting update in the shape of Jide's latest Remix OS iteration. This third-party Android build is now available for Google's Pixel C, but it can also deliver a desktop experience to those using the HTC Nexus 9 as well.

Earlier today, Remix OS published the following headline on its Facebook account: "We're excited to announce that Remix OS based on Android Marshmallow is now available for Pixel C and Nexus 9!" Unfortunately, there are no details attached to this announcement, but everyone knows what to expect - new emojis, Doze mode, granular app permissions, Google Now on Tap, as well as multiple minor tweaks and fixes.

Since these are not official builds, there is no automatic update option available. For now, the firmware update files are only available for downloading via a torrent client. Even beginners should be able to install the firmware quite easy since Jide also published a detailed tutorial on how to flash the new software to the supported devices.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
