Well, I did post that almost 3 days ago. The part about not having factory images posted yet still holds true. Usually, all the factory images are released within a day or two.

Unfortunately, Google disabled Miracast by default on their Nexus phones, requiring root access to fix. That is some Apple-level proprietary-forcing BS right there. Chromecast is great but it has its limitations.
I see it differently. The reason for Nexus is supposed to be bloat-free, official, and fast software updates. Root is there if you need it and is easier to do than most other flagship devices and doesn't trip anything to void warranties. Besides, I root anyway for adblocking, titanium backup, and if required, enable tethering.
