Moved from a pixel to the p20 prop early December after fido announced the android phone update OTA rollout. Following this for 6 weeks now, and happily registered just to send my IMEI number after @FidoStephen response this morning. just to have @FidoStephen back track the last statement and leave us with no ETA. frustrating as heck
How long does it take a world leading company to restart its services? I understand servers were down, does it takes weeks to restart them. Why is Huawei controlling our update? Is it injecting malicious codes by screening all the IMEI?
I think we Canadian should boycott the state-sponsored snooping company?
If we don't get the update by then, what should we do?
I am not in favor of staged rollout concept. We should raise a voice about it. If we all have quality controlled same device for Canada, the update can be a simple one-click push to all Canadian clients. Given the recent controversy, I feel the company could act in a rage which is very typical behavior of China if we take a look in their history.
Anyways @FidoStephen thanks for the new update. Apologies for my way of seeing things that I pour to the community.
@ryadav Please let us know if you don't receive the update by January 21 (end of day).
Huawei is responsible for the staged rollout process. They tend to be one of the only carriers that does this. From what I know, they prefer to release it to a small number of devices and monitor for any issues before releasing to everyone.
Also, no need to apologize; your contributions are always welcome!
This isn't unique to Huawei.Except for Apple and Google who obviously control the entire OS process, every other Android manufacturer rolls out the update. 1% for the first day, then if no known issues the next 25%..50-75% and within a couple of weeks it's 100%. No manufacturer wants to find out there's a bug with every device already updated.
