Flash Stock Android 6.0 on Nexus 5

Hello, I bought a Nexus 5 approximately one year ago but it still only runs the TextNow variant of Android 5.0.1 which is laggy and buggy. I was wondering if there was a safe method for flashing Android 6.0.1 onto the Nexus. Also if I flash the new firmware, will my service still work or not? Thank you for your time.

Hi, Amir:

Sorry about the late reply! Our TextNow devices have the Android version baked into the ROM, which means the Android version can't be updated independently. Our engineers are looking into releasing a new ROM with an updated Android OS on some of our models, but I unfortunately have no time frame for when that will be released.
