Fix “missing boot.img” error for Marshmallow factory image

missing boot img

Getting “error: update package missing system.img” OR “error: update package missing boot.img” error on your Nexus device while attempting to install Android 6.0 Marshmallow production line picture? Indeed, you’re not the only one and this blunder isn’t new.

We’ve seen this blunder back when Lollipop production line pictures discharged, and despite the fact that Google promised a fix for this in later updates to Lollipop, it appears as though it’s as yet an issue with Google’s content for flashing industrial facility pictures.

Anyway, the fix for this is really basic and clear. Rather than using a single tick flash-all content that Google gives inside industrial facility picture to flash all parcels naturally, you have to physically flash each segment on the device.

Fixing “missing Boot.img” error for Marshmallow boot image

Install ADB and Fastboot on your PC.

Expecting that you’ve just extricated the processing plant picture to the point where flash-all content is found. Now separate/unfasten the picture xxx-xxx.zip file that lies in a similar folder.

Now copy and glue the bootloader-xxx-xxx.img and radio-xx-xx-xx.img file from the folder where flash-all content misleads the folder where you removed files in Step 2 above. You ought to have every one of these files in a similar folder:

  • bootloader-xxx-xxx.img
  • radio-xx-xx-xx.img
  • boot.img
  • cache.img
  • recovery.img
  • system.img
  • userdata.img

Open an order window inside the folder where all your .img files are. To do as such, “Shift + Right click” on an unfilled void area inside the folder and select “Open command window here” from the setting menu.

Boot your Nexus device into bootloader mode and connect it to PC.

Now issue the accompanying directions one-by-one in the order window you opened in Step 4:

fastboot flash bootloader-xxx-xxx.img

fastboot reboot-bootloader

 Replace bootloader-xxx-xxx.img with the first file name.

fastboot flash radio-xx-xx-xx.img

fastboot reboot-bootloader

Replace bootloader-xxx-xxx.img with the first file name.

fastboot reboot-bootloader

fastboot flash boot boot.img

fastboot flash reserve cache.img

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

fastboot flash framework system.img

This may take a few minutes.

fastboot flash userdata userdata.img

When you’ve effectively flashed all the framework allotments, reboot your device by issuing the accompanying order:

fastboot reboot

There’s nothing more to it. The “blunder: update bundle missing system.img” mistake ought not to happen when you physically flash the Marshmallow industrial facility picture using the guidelines above.
