Re: Moto Z2 Force Tmobile Will Not Update to Oreo

How's that update coming along? Would like to get it pushed to me I can. Noticed there is a new listing on T-mobiles website for build OCX27.1 dated 2/16/2018.

I haven't seen it on my phone yet as well. Most likely rolling out in waves. Still on OCX27.0

I would be happy with that at least. Still sitting on NCX26.7 myself.

Any update on this? Am very dissatisfied with still being on August 2017 security patch. How does one get this update pushed to their device?

Have no idea. I've been living in the Windows phone realm the last several years. Regular security updates even after it was killed along with new builds in it's ballmer days for insiders. I could install a build whenever. Really don't want to grab a captured OTA update but at this point waiting is getting rediculous.

If you figure out how to get that captured OTA to work let me know. I haven’t had any luck, it always errors out halfway through. I believe it is erroring out because I am still stock and locked.

 

I really do not want to unlock Bootloader and go root route, but that might be only choice. The lack of response and/or action from both T-Mobile and Lenovo is quite irritating.

If you do get the OTA, you'll have issues since that's why the roll out was stopped.

Also unlocking the bootloader voids your warranty. The response is that the upgrade was stopped due to bugs. People had trouble talking to anyone on a Samsung phone and other issues. So I'm glad they stopped it. I have it and now I'm stuck awaiting the fix. My phone worked fine before so there really should be no rush to upgrade now. How long it will take depends on many factors. I would rather wait and see a bug free upgrade for people.

All heard and understood.

 

My reluctance to unlock Bootloader is precisely for the reason you state; I’m not yet willing to throw away the warranty.

 

I mentioned it in another thread, there should be a means for those that want it to be moved ahead in the push queue. I’m not the type of end user to bit, err complain about not getting what I want and then complain about something not working when I get what I asked for.

 

Do not post update notes on your support sites if there is no way for the end user to update.

I just received the update to my 8.0 I had from the bugged OTA. So it should be going to those that have 8.0 already with the fixes for those bugs. Hopefully those still in 7 will see the oreo update as well.

If anyone does please let others here know.
