i have a nokia 6 ta-1021. until now, there ist no september update available. also, i wasn't able to find an offical nokia or hmd global server to download and install the update manually. only some non official sites offer the september update to download. without at least any offical md5 hash, these update files can contain nearly everything.
how can i get the september security patch for my phone?
No I don't think you did anything wrong. I did the same a couple of days ago. I'm not sure that HMD have released the October patch for the TA-1033. Not here in the UK anyway.
If anyone has received it maybe they could chime in?
Yeah, I have a hard time getting any sense out of customer support at the carrier or the hardware manufacturer. Basically, the people they allow you to talk to don't know anything. We can't really influence what's happening except through forums etc. and hoping the feedback gets through to someone who knows what they are doing.
I don't think anybody with a TA-1033 has the 7.1.2 update. Maybe it hasn't been released yet.
I accept that O2 don't officially support the Nokia/HMD phones but I've owned umpteen phones from different manufacturers, always on O2 and I've never know OTAs not arrive because they've been blocked.
I think some carrier relations person at HMD just needs to have a quick word with someone on the technical team at O2 and I'm sure it could be sorted in no time.
Hi i have the TA-1033 sim free on O2 in the uk,Yesterday i had a Carrier Services app update in the play store and immediately after i had a system update which gave me the september security patch.
I tried this a few days ago on my TA-1033 and got in a mess with it. The update failed part way through and just kept booting back to recovery. Had to reinstall the stock firmware with the June security patch and go from there.
It has happened to others as well because I found a few threads on it. I had to use some cracked tool from XDA to put everything right. Not ideal!
Glad it worked for you though. The whole experience put me right off trying again.
