Android P for Huawei p20 pro

Global rollout began a few days ago and Fido lists Dec 19th as the rollout date but still no OTA update on my P20 Pro. Has anyone actually received the update yet? I'm getting impatient

 

Thanks Mike

UPDATE

 

Huawei have now resumed the OTA updates using their backup server. It is a staged rollout between January 16 to 21, for both the P20 and the P20 Pro.

Re: Android P for Huawei p20 pro

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.

@Proac Google actually does the roll out the same way 1% in the first 24-48hrs, reddit user jaykresge did a good write up of it here with sources. 

 

@FidoStephen C'omon I expected better from you bud.

Re: Android P for Huawei p20 pro

This is insane because FIDO OS upgrade does tons of testing on their end before OKing to manufacturer ..while client base is very device specific (that's very true because devices differ due to many reasons) the rollout should be not 1%, it should be full 100%.

 

This is idiotic of the manufacturer that they release devices following numerous Q standards and cant release software in one shot.  Google makes software for the generic platform, so not all devices may work and their rollout model makes sense because they are dealing with billions of devices, not like a few 100 thousand devices.

Re: Android P for Huawei p20 pro

What's even more troubling is the Mate 20 is already running EMUI 9 so Huawei knows its stable. They would never release a new flagship phone with a buggy OS so they know it works fine. Already the 17th and still no update here. My guess is I might see it in February because I can't believe anything Fido or Huawei tells me.

Re: Android P for Huawei p20 pro

@KAPABLE-K that article seems to imply if you remove your SIM and factory reset your phone you'll disassociate it from the carrier and be eligible for the update immediately..I'm very tempted to try this theory out  I don't buy it but I'm willing to give it a shot

It's actually true at least for Google phones, here is a snapshot of my Nexus 6P I got from Fido in 2016. I loaded a custom rom in December but did not put a SIM card in it as yet.
