    Nevertheless, just before I bought my Nokia 8 and started to take pictures, there had been (once again) an update in early September.  

    I can only advise you to have a look in my manual (based on comments in this forum) and see if there is anything that can help and/or find a good gcam app (also in this forum and also for Oreo 8.1). And at the same time hope the engineers of HMD Global are still working on improving the camera app. Of course, you may also fear they are not.

    Yes, I reverted to Oreo during the beta labs and got their so called "official" pie release.
    Are you stuck on pie? Or is rollback still possible?

    @Dheeraj from my understanding the revert to Oreo option shouldn't be possible after getting their "official" pie. I can still see the "request rollback over the OTA" button on the beta labs page, but I'm not going to waste all my data again for a chance to waste my phone for good.

    So i guess my device will stick to this rotten pie hoping for some f-ing love from those (as of yet) lying 💩s.

    I still have the option to roll back to Oreo, if i could stop the OTA from nagging me to "upgrade"  back to 9 i'd probably do it.

    Question: does a factory reset also reset the system? For example from Pie to Nougat?
  • marsic marsic

    Not from what i know. It will reset all data and settings, on the last successfully installed OS version.

    I would have thought the February patch cant be far away now.

    I cant believe i am saying this but the Moto G5 Plus is already getting it and support for that thing has been shockingly bad. If Lenovo have bucked their ideas up i might be swayed back to them.

    If you look on https://www.nokia.com/phones/en_int/security-updates, you notice that it is almost always on 18/19.

    Moto G5 and G5 plus got Android 8.1 on 31 October  - Nokia 8 in May/June
    Moto G5 and G5 plus don't get Android Pie.
    They were released in 2017 - like Nokia 8

    I was taking about the February patch regarding the Moto G5 Plus, it is well known the Moto G5 series wont get Android 9 given the product line only receives one major OS update.

    The monthly security patch has been out before now in the past a number of times in the past. The source you provided can corroborate this.

    I have Oreo (not updated to Pie) with December path. On the Nokia update site https://www.nokia.com/phones/en_int/security-updates is listed January path for Oreo 8.1. How can I install this Path (00WW_4_88B_SP08)? I have only Pie when searching for update... I tried to reset "Google Services Framework" - the update list is blank but when I click "search"... it finds pie again... and not security path for 8.1....
  • SAMSUNG rolls out the FEBRUARY SECURITY PATCH for her GALAXY S9/ S9 PLUS today. 👍 And HMD Gobal??? NOTHING!!! 😡 Without words. 😭😡

    I'd allow them to be late for a few more days with the security patch, but dang... This rotten pie and camera software fiasco... Now that's a tragedy!

    Na sicher. Einige Tage sind nicht das Problem. Aber was hat uns HMD durch den Neustart der Marke "Nokia" im Jahr 2017 erzählt? WIR sind diejenigen, die Updates sicher und zunächst starten. UND was ist das Ergebnis, wenn ich das Nokia 8 sehe? Nur hohle Wörter. 😒😒😒

    I understand that you are waiting ... 
    About the timing of the security patches by Nokia see:

    @jdan Ok, if they could maintain the chain of release at around that date it would be alright. Let's wait and see if January becomes the new trend (or worse)

    Nokia 5.1 got its January patch on 16 January - Nokia 8 had to wait till 29 January or  even February 1st. Almost a fortnight later! So, we may have to wait another two weeks ...
    These updates, however, can't be pinned down on a certain day (like I mentioned earlier on). Sometimes they were as early as the 7th of the month, sometimes they were given only the last day of that month (May 18) or even the next month like one of the January patches 2019.

    Sure seems like HMD is continuing to prioritize updating their mid-range 2018 phones over Nokia 8.

    Yes. Because nokia (HMD) is low-mid range Quality company too.

    It may perhaps also be a lot easier for HMD because these 2018 phones are running on Android One, delivered to them by Google and maintained by Google.

    More interesting info on Wikipedia.

    Well, considering that our pie hasn't met their "high quality" standards for months in a row, that's a rather convenient cover for them to keep focusing on other stuff while pretending to "work" on what we need (and f-ing paid for).

    🥃🍻 Here's for them to change my mind. And surprise us with actually high quality pie and camera software.
