A set of stock factory images have been released for the Nexus 6P by Google. When flashed, a factory image restores a device back to stock from a custom ROM or recovery. Google has released two Marshmallow factory images for the Huawei Nexus 6P with MDB08K and MDA89D build number.
These two factory images join the Marshmallow group alongside other images for older Nexus devices. A factory image is the original firmware that your phone comes with when you take it out of the box.
A stock factory image is used not only for restoring the Nexus 6P to stock, but also for fixing soft-bricked units and deleting any installed custom ROMs, mod or custom recoveries. Also, flashing a stock factory image is the best way to fix any software problems with the phone.
