Enjoy the sweet taste of Android Marshmallow on Nexus 7 by installing BeanStalk ROM.
BeanStalk is a known custom ROM for Android and has been in development since Android Jelly Bean. It has based its latest development over CyanogenMod 13 and has finally announced its official builds for the Nexus 7 WiFi (grouper). The developer responsible for bringing this amazing ROM to N7 is krassermensch. Check the release at the original XDA thread.
The Nexus 7 was the first Nexus tablet which was released during 2012. It has seen some major evolution that took place in the history of Android. The N7 came with Jelly Bean 4.1.2 out-of-the-box and could be upgraded to Lollipop 5.1.1 officially, and this is where Google finally decided to drop the support for any further updates. The tablet sustained its reputation while enjoying three different Android versions, but leaving the Marshmallow party, was really saddening for its users.
