I contacted Vodafone from Portugal and they confirmed it, Vodafone Ireland and Vodafone Czech also confirmed it
EDIT: Vodafone Spain also confirmed it

Kinda wish they would release Android Nougat instead but hey, it's a victory.

Happy days are here again! Marshmallow is better than nothing at all. I've resisted upgrading my phone since the VSU6 meets all my requirements. I even reverted to unrooted and it's been reliable so far. Hopefully they release it soon. Thanks for the heads up...

I unrooted and installed stock due to the newest security update and using a 3rd party Android Pay app, but I knew Marshmallow was coming.

In all honesty, MM update is definitely better than nothing... however, I would have preferred Nougat considering that they are putting the time and effort into updating the OS anyway. 

This lack of jumping to Nougat could easily be connected to several reasons: 

1. They want to encourage sales of newest phones that come with Nougat

2. Possible issues of being unable to directly upgrade from 5.1.1 to 7

 

I got this phone for my flatmate as I thought it was excellent in terms of overall specs and price (I would have gotten one for myself too, but I went with Zenfone 2 (ZE551ML) due to it having better community support. Lack of being able to root the Ultra 6 however (to install Adaway at least and remove annoying ads) is disappointing. I tried every proposed option to root the phone and it's just not working.

I found rooting easy! Temp root with kingroot, download flashify and flash TWRP then install supersu.zip :)

 

Edit! After flashing back to stock ROM, I can't seem to root!! :( once updated to MM I'll try harder. It would be easy if this phone would go into fastboot mode....anyone had any luck with that?? (Fsstboot mode)

If you've installed it already that may be the latest security patch that's locked it down.

Do I need to unroot this phone to install last update that is 36mb? It says root access detected but there is option to install from sd card.

So this new security patch update just blocks out any chance of rooting this device? If so, it won't take long for a new exploit being found to root the device, and with 6.0 coming up, its blissful.

Edit: First post edited, take a look.

Hopefully, just hopefully this new update to Marshmallow will be a 64-bit update and it will activate HD Voice and Quick Charge 2.0

Just hope we actually get the update. 64 bit, hd voice, quick charge, all that are extras

The update is more than confirmed, now lets focus on the little thing it might or might not come with it.
