My UK Nokia 8.1 is still on the November security update, what's up with Nokia and their supposedly quick updates?
Exactly the same here. In the UK, stuck on November patch. Phone is unlocked, shouldn't have anything to do with carriers.
can you explain how you do that thx
With the Nokia 8 swapping the SIM card to another network used to work nearly every time to get it to update, it need to be a different network though and not a MVNO on the same network as your main SIM 🙂
@GTR12 is right, even in the UK updates are getting blocked or delayed on SIM free phones for some reason, there are a number of posts in the Nokia 8 forum about the whys and why nots but given that the Nokia 8 is dead as a dodo i cant be ársed trawling through it all to find them but rest assured they are there somewhere.
Tried the VPN method, tried a few countries to no avail. Also just swapped my GiffGaff (O2) sim to a Three sim, and still nothing.
I could just sideload the updates, but shouldn't have to really.
Contacted GiffGaff, as I thought they've said it's nothing to do with them. My partners phone (Nokia 7 Plus) is receiving updates just fine on the same network.
Installed the December patch manually. Once that was installed, the phone prompted me to install the January patch. All up to date now.
At one point in time we had 2 Nokia 8s in our house and they never updated at the same time, there was often weeks and weeks between them.
Is anyone in the UK on anything later than the November update?
No, mine was stuck on November. I sideloaded December, then January popped up right after.
Mine has just updated to December 2019, restarted and it immediately updated to January 2020. (in the UK, no VPN, on Vodafone)
Updated twice now in quick succession in the UK on Vodafone.
Where can i donload the december patch? And how do i instal them?
Hey Guys...I am...from India...
Even i am facing the same kind of issue...
My Nokia8.1 is stucked on September Security Patch and there are too many bugs in the phone!...
Anyone else from India facing the same issue?
My build Number:- 00WW_5_15B
Where did you get your phone as it has the Russian firmware which is not as well maintained. It should be 00WW_4_15B in India, find a service center and get them to reflash the correct firmware for your region.
