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
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.
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.
@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
