Accepted Solution

Re: About android 8.1

i don't have anything specific stating that but on here

https://www.reddit.com/r/GooglePixel/comments/7hu67b/81_ota_update_verizon/

and https://www.reddit.com/r/GooglePixel/comments/7iah77/verizon_81_ota_available_pixel_2_xl/

someone has a pixel 2 bought from Verizon and got an OTA with the same build number as the build with no carrier specific on it when the November update had Verizon

 

my pixel 2 XL arrived with OPD1.170816.012 (Sept update with Fido/Roger specific firmware) and got OTA update to OPD1.170816.025 (November with no specific) and now OPM1.171019.011 (8.1 December with no carrier specific)

 

http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/12/07/check-update-button-pixel-nexus-devices-still-isnt-pulling-latest-otas-promised-itll-fixed-2018/

this article talks about how check for update is supposed to force an OTA download but it seems to be broken right now and will be fixed in 2018

Hello @Timmoco,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

The Android 8.1 update is available if you did not receive the OTA notification trying doing a manual update check if not you should be receiving it in the next few days as its currently being pushed out.

Re: About android 8.1

Is that really true? The reason i'm saying this is because the pixel phone is litterally checking this page (from Google): https://developers.google.com/android/images

 

If you notice, only Google's unlocked version is 8.1 and none of the other Telco's. If it was avaialable - I agree, definitely pressing the check version will trigger the update.

Hello User456912,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  According to Fido's OS Upgrade Schedule...

Taken from here.

 

  You should note that the rollout often occurs in batches. Additionally, while most of the updates come from Google directly, some of them would need to be forwarded from Fido for additional functionality (ie Wifi-calling). If you haven't already received the the OTA update, you should be receiving it in the near future. You might also consider trying a manual update check to see if the update has already been rolled-out to your device.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Did you even click any of the links in my comment that explain to you how Google updates the phones with carriers?

So instead of checking what Fido and Rogers say point-blank... and looking at the actual servers that host all updates... I clearly don't see 8.1 for Fido and Rogers.

Re: About android 8.1

Hello again,

 

  Have you verified that list of OTA Images is in fact up to date? That list also shows the Verizon version to be Android 8.0. However, Verizon also clearly lists the 8.1 (OPM1.171019.011) as available (see here).

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

Re: About android 8.1

Google only release carrier specific updates when needed other than that the regular update applies.

If both your statements were true, my screenshot would be 8.0.1 or 8.1. Cough - another ambiguity as Verison is rolling out 8.1 but fido and rogers are doing... 8.0.1? lol.

Hello again,

 

  The 8.0.1 is likely a typo. However, that column is the current OS. The column beside it is the upcoming OS: Android O 8.1, Dec. security update + Wi-Fi calling (see OS Schedule from above).

 

  According to your own screen capture, the security update is Nov 2017. The most recent available OTA Image in that list is Sept 2017 for a Fido/Rogers specific version.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers
