    I was (official) member of Beta-progamm in Decembre 2017, I didn't roll back to "Oreo", I have got the "official" Version of Pie together with the february-security patch. And, I have got the (pure) march-security patch last week (Germany, TA-1012, bought in Octobre 2017).

    I don't believe that the "Beta" is/ was the reason for missing february-/ march-security patch.

    And, I am afraid, HMD doesn't know the reasons, too. I believe it gives more than one reason for it.

    honestly why don't they at least release the updates as zip files so we can flash them whenever we want and if it's broken, we can downgrade to a stable version whenever we want. This is what I love about Nexus/Pixel phones

    @Silviu Laurentiu Sgindar today i read from @Costy that he had received the March security patch update, while he's using an Orange sim. I've checked for updates with my normal Vodafone sim in, but nothing was available. Then i inserted an old, expired Orange sim that I had around and the March update arrived.

    Background: i don't know if either influenced this, but yesterday I've done a factory reset on my phone AND had a quite enraged chat conversation with their support (from the "my phone" support app.) They've asked for my IMEI multiple times, i don't know what they did with it, eventually the result was the same old: be patient, updates will come... Anyway, i hope they get back on track and actually bring the much needed fixes to our phones. At least now, not when it reaches the end of life/support...
  • Factory reset today ..nothing. No update

    Did you try a sim from another operator? In my case, I've switched my normal Vodafone sim to an old, disabled Orange sim and there it was when checking for updates.

    I don't have dead sim. Active vodafone and Telekom don't work.

    Same bla bla on chat support. I will tell everyone how bad is Nokia and in 5 days fill a complain to Google. Worst company.

    I wrote there a few days ago and still the same excuses - thank you for the announcement, your issue will be escalated to the relevant department, etc. I think it's very naive to think that Nokia 8 still gets some update with bug fixes.  Unfortunately, I am started looking on smartphone from another brand because I no longer want to tolerate it.

    I can't believe my own eyes - just got the March update! Finally, I can get rid of the old Pie Beta from January... and they really skipped february in my case, hah

    @sonny101 the March update is only a security patch, not maintenance release... I don't think it does much to the beta, at most removing the feedback app. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    No that is only if you get a maintenance release up to version .140

    yeah, just installed it, it's still a Pie beta, there's no adaptive battery or digital wellbeing and even the feedback app is still there.

    I regret to give you information that everyone should already know.  Who gets into beta programs is what brand goes into trouble.  It is so in any brand.  Beta testers are for experienced programming users.  Users with above average knowledge to be able to solve their bugs on their own.  Beta versions always bring errors.  Incidentally you should only install beta versions on secondary devices never on the main.

    Hi @StefanT,

    You can download the package here: 
    https://bit.ly/nokia-nb1
    (OTA Folder).  Copy the downloaded zip file to SD card.  The phone needs to switch to recovery mode and select the option to update from the SD card. 

    Cheers :smiley:
