i read somewhere that Nokia wants to be like the next nexus phones by rolling out stock android but the fact is what made nexus unique was addition of factory images by google which anyone could download from their site and flash.Same goes for one plus phones.
However i dont understand why Nokia shies away from this.Request you guys to add the factory images for ur android phones in the support section on your site or something.
I agree, it's odd that HMD/Nokia still haven't done this. Even if they don't put them on their website, a dedicated software tool for a PC (like Nokia Suite, Nokia Software Recovery Tool, etc) which could download the correct image and flash it to the phone would be great. In fact, I think it's a necessary tool and I wish HMD/Nokia would provide it.
