My Z2F won't update from Nougat

2019-03-14, 22:27 PM

Hi I have an AT&T variant and I am using it on Crivcket (thanks to Moto Insiders) and I'm trying to update the OS. I have tried resetting it and using the Lenovo assistant to force an update. I have the device registered here, like I said I'm using an AT&T variant with Cricket service. I am a tech YouTuber, I have a tech channel and I've done everything I know how to do, I am the android expert for my retailer and I can't even force an update. When updating the new OS through the assistant, it gets to about n81% and fails. I have debug unlocked, I had it on the same wifi and left it untouched for a couple days while I was working in another store. Any suggestions? Do I need to find an at&t sim card?

Hello

 

My phone ( att branded z2f) would not do any updates.  I moved my sim card from a non branded Moto x4.  I called att and they did a forced push and my phone updated to the latest att version with oreo and has been updating as expected with each security update.  They mentioned about the sim being in a non att branded phone at first and when I moved it to the z2 force it did not update because of that.

Hi LadyRedYT,

 

Thanks for posting. Let me check your current build. Please update your profile with current phone, carrier and serial number -- this will help me investigate. Please make sure that the options under Settings > Motorola Privacy are on as well, and let me know (just reply here) if it's okay for me to look at your apps to see if they are a source of problems.

Need help updating your profile? See here

 

Make sure you have a SIM card with your phone before checking for an update. 

 

Best regards,
Rich

Thank you. I'll get further assistance about this since the Lenovo Smart Assistant stuck at 81% update. I recommend coordinating with your carrier as well regarding this.
