Even if MrFixIt is wrong I still won't get another Huawei. Green screen, Audio recording issues, and now firmware update issues. Never had any issues with the previous 3 Samsung phones I've owned. 6 years of Samsung without issue and 4 months of Huawei with 3 big faults.
Just spoke to Huawei on hicare, they reckon it doesn't affect your ability to get the latest version. Here's what he said. WHAT DOES HE MEAN REQUEST OPTUS TO MANUALLY PUSH TO MY PHONE?? Does that mean Optus lying about Huawei being in charge of the rollouts?
Thanks for waiting
We had a check with our Tech teams and they've informed us that they suspect you received the update for the previous version available for your model under Mate 20 Pro as there were records of you getting in touch with us asking for the update, correct?
As such, we'd like for you to check for the latest update firmware, 18.104.22.168(C34E11R1P16), as it's being sent out batch by batch so please stay tuned to our HiCare app as well as Updater in Settings>System>System Update in the next week or bit later 🙂
We can assure you that this should not affect the latest update patch being sent out so not to worry 🙂
In the case you have trouble getting it, please get back to us as we can have our Software teams make a formal request to Optus to possibly manually push the update to your Phone
Even with this.212 update we will be missing on some features for example the photos AI colour mode which was introduced to .178 unfortunately this version would of and should have been received because going to a different firmware the colour AI is not available
Seems that OPTUS screwed us again.
From XDA member
You have to download 178 version its only that has this option 2xx has not ia pictures yet
In Other forums of XDA explain how to upgrade to other versions
In 178 volume of speaker is higher and better and has better Display Performance
Maybe we should have Optus push it to us apparently Huawei say that it is possible. I've got the chat window screenshot but I don't know how to attach it here.
I'm confused...isn't 178 an older update?
So they removed that feature from the one Optus is pushing out?!
Anyway still no update for me and 2 other friends.
@fusion9 So am i, you would think that it is but Huawei firmware version method is bollocked up, apparently 178 has Mar security updates and is fairly new. Most of the latest 2xx firmwares don't have some things included, a few XDA members have gone from 2xx to 178 downgrade is not meant to be possible, so this again suggest that 178 is newer.
Hits The Software Update button for the 2 million time in 4 days.
Seriously just send the update out and stop staggering it, it's not like your servers are slow. 😩
