Re: Moto g5s plus oreo update

Because of literally thousands of complaints. If it ain't broke, don't break it.

If this list is complete, you'd have to be a numskull to shoulder the risk.


Too funny. For months virtually nothing but people demanding O for the G5 family. Those of use in no hurry were lambasted here fpor not pressing or suggesting O added nothing pressing.

 

Now, months later the opposite?

 

But now there is a pressing need. No security updates for N. While before a few wanted to stay on N and get updates, now there's no choice. You have to be on O to get any security fixes.

What security updates? I haven't seen a security update since February 1st. We have been abused and forgotten by Lenovo so switch brands or get a G7 if you want security upgrades.

Didn't say there had been, just that if there are any they will be to the O release not N.
But there were a few for O while none for N after O was released.


The G5+ here has been retired so I haven't kept track.

 

 

If I ever put it back in use, it'll get a custom, 64 bit O or P ROM.

Aug 2018 - Bundled with Oreo update

Also, I've seen news that Moto One getting May security patch. So I think it's may around the corner for Moto G5 family.

Re: Moto g5s plus oreo update

Simply put people who wanted and expected updates and support left Motonovo. They went to other companies and bought their phones and managed to get the support and service they expected here. I suspect that like me they also told everyone they knew looking for a new phone to run like hell from Motonovo and offered a range of companies that would provide prompt support and service. So what you have left are the people that realising there is no hope asking for fixes are asking for the ability to rollback to what they wanted from their phone worked.

Re: Moto g5s plus oreo update

As I mentioned in my last comment that another security update is around the corner, finally it's rolling out for Moto G5s Plus as reported in this post.

 

Few more fixes and improvements are also included in this update. It has official release notes page too.

Re: Moto g5s plus oreo update

OPS28.85-17-6-2 looks to be the latest for the RETUS channel.

But like always, there's no rhyme or reason to what devices get what updates.

I just bought a 32GB RETUS device that's stuck on a early 2018 build. It's going back as it was supposed to be a 64GB device.

But if I had to keep it, I'd at least sideload/fastboot update it. My plan was to unlock and run 3rd party stuff though.
