August Security PatchAugust Security Patch

In Augest security patch samsung said it patch a critical security vulrnability, so imagine how many security holes in your phones since it was never patched since november last year.

No kidding, I have read each patch release from Google and each have significant vulnerability fixes. This more than the OS is what have me upset. All the patches were provided but Fido decided it was not important enough. Great support.

Hey everyone,

 

We hear you loud and clear and we apologize for the delay in the Android M update for the Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge. The update will also include Wi-Fi Calling so we want to make sure everything’s working well before rolling it out. We will keep you posted - shouldn’t be much longer.

Thats not an excuse, both Kodoo and Bell have wifi calling and it works like a charm

not just Fido thats ignorant, even their moderator in here are the same. They keep deleting my posts just because I'm warning users to hold on use of banking apps on the phone while the are vulnerable since they don't have patchs since last year.

Yes post get deleted that hit too hard, I had some removed. I don't buy for a sec that wifi calling is holding this up, friends have it working like a charm on other provides using the S6.
So why can't their people get it working?

This stupid company will never listen to us or care about its customer. Every other carrier in canada has the update since around April.
However, I have my own trick that I use since last year and get the update when anyother carrier release it since all S6 and S6 edge in canada are the same exact model. You only trick smart switch momentarly that your phone is for different carrier and you will get the update from smart switch no root or xnox triger or anything and you will still get the update over the air when Fido ever release it (if that would ever happen lol)

I cant put the links (don't want my post unfairly deleted) so just google "Get Update from different carrier using SmartSwitch [Canadian]" my thread is on XDA.

Now i'm using Kodoo latest software and i'm loving it loving the wifi calling and awsome battery improvment

It has been over 6 months that this essential update hasn't been released for a flagship phone such as the samsung s6... the update is out for literally almost everyone besides fido/rogers. i don't see how this is acceptable at all.

 

im tired of getting the same robotic response from fido reps 'Check the OS update schedule'.The OS schedule said coming in june a few months back and now its back to coming soon. how long are we going to wait?

 

is there any known way to get this update without waiting for fido to release their version? numerous family members are eager to get this update as well as myself. if not, as promised, this will be the end of my journey with fido. very unprofessional and thoroughly displeased with the ways they treat their customers.

Don't worry! At Fido they're really working hard to make sure the update is Fido perfect, and they're totally sure that the update is coming really soon!

They really feel bad that you feel that way, and they might PM you with no solution whatsoever!

Finally, I'm sure that the update is "coming soon!"

I'm not sure what that means... I mean June obviously doesn't mean June for Fido, and soon obviously doesn't mean soon, but I'm sure it's coming soon!

Oh my god I'm turning into one of them... No concrete content to write... just empty platitudes... kill me now...

yes, it's unacceptable that Fido is holding up the update for so looooooooooooooong. What's the point of getting a premium phone but using an OS that is a year old?!?!

So why did s5 get the update before s6? This is such BS. Its been listes as coming soon for over 2 months. Come on Fido.... just come on and get your **bleep** together.

FIDO should let us know what they are doing to the update, this would give us a good reason on waiting.

 

Not telling us means is FREAKING suspicious.

 

And also we should keep writting on this post so that it's on top of the feeds everyday!

Why is S6 on Fido so outdated?

Hey @ButterOverflow

 

Once the update is available, it'll be posted on the OS schedule posted above Smiley .

You keep posting the same response. We want to know WHY is it not available. Stop beating around the bush and tell your customers before you and Samsung both loose them.

Looks like Fido is attempting to do some damage control by deleting messages on this thread. Pathetic.

I suspected that was the case for some time now and I think you are correct.

Yes I so suspected the same.
Well word is they are having a struggle with the WiFi calling and do not expect anything till into September.

I am going to try this Odin flash of marshmallow, I heard as careful as one is it could still brick your phone.

If updates were done as expected would not have to resort to this.
