So i think that we still have to wait. The users that have received Nougat in Europe have joined the Motorola Feedback Network or not?


I didn't join the Motorola Feedback Network or at least I'm not aware of doing so and I got the update.

This is why I'm seriously considering Lineage OS at the moment. It has a more recent security patch and they're much more on top of it all.

 

How is it that a billion dollar company can't properly update the phone but a team of developers working in their spare time can do it?

Was toying over the idea of rooting to Linage OS myself over the weekend. Find their previous roms under cynogenmod impeccible. Rooted 2 of my previous samsung phones the S2 and S4 and currently have a tab3 10.1 which I rooted to CM 13.1 (soon to be Linage OS 14 nougat). they already have android 7.1.1 root for the G4 range and just think, these are volunteers not a multi billion £/$ company.

 

The only thing that has stopped me is that I'm due an upgrade in June, so would be pointless.

Hi all. Can't read 63 pages for an answer, so asking again.

 

Where is the update for the UK? All the articles online say by the end of January, another says February 11th. I also read that it is delayed until March in Germany and I don't know whether this is the same region or what. 

 

Also, the Moto update info page doesn't list the G4 and never has, it doesn't even say the update is coming. 

 

Much more info is needed for future updates (I say this because Moto have confirmed that the G4 will be updated to Android 'O', as stated in some articles).

Just be sure you're not doing the soak. Just admitting so could get you kicked out of it. Also joining MFN is I believe the only way of getting the soak.

I've never seen Lenovo/Motorola say the G4 Plus will be updated to android "O". That's interesting if true.

 

However I'm bored of waiting for Nougat. I'm sick of the soak tests. Lenovo need to give updates. I don't buy into all this nonsense where Lenovo refuse to comment on updates. It causes much more trouble than it solves

You don't have to root your phone to run LineageOS/Cyanogenmod.  Simply unlock the bootloader, install TWRP recovery, then install the ROM.

UK: There is no update. There are no dates. There is no communication. There is no care for customers. There is no support. Boom! There's your answer.

 

The promised update link is on the Motorola Global site here.

 

The Motorola UK support and update site is so far out of date you'll be lucky if it lists anything beyond the StarTAC and MicroTAC.
