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

 

We no longer need your IMEIs. 

 

Huawei ran into server issues and therefore had to halt the updates. We don't have an ETA yet, but we'll update this thread as soon as we have more news to share.

 

Thanks for your patience with this.

Re: Android P for Huawei p20 pro

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

@FidoStephen @FidoNick

 

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?

@ryadav We're waiting to hear back from them with an update, but they did mention it would be "very soon". Now, if only I could tell you what their definition of "very soon" is... 

 

You can also check out this page for information on the whole OS update process.

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.

Re: Android P for Huawei p20 pro

@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!

Re: Android P for Huawei p20 pro

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.
