Android Software Updates.pngWhen a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device.  The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country.  Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page:

 

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?

 

The below table provides info on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 02/05/2016. If no info is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices & once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, where it’s made available for a small number of users (5% for example) initially. If no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll be gradually made available to more & more users over a period of a couple of weeks.

@smatizio 6.0 in testing for the HTC M9 🙂

 

@saidAbs Which Asus phone are you referring to? Did you purchase it from a 3rd party and are using an Optus SIM in it or did you buy it from us directly?

What about Android 6.0 for HTC Desire 816? If the M8 has it i'm sure the 816 should be able to have it.

If you need firmware for S6/Edge just go to Sammobile...

They've already got the Optus' Marshmallow firmware for S6 series.

I've already Installed it on mine. Works perfect. They had added Samsung pay app too(which cannot be used currently) So if you want to upgrade your S6 go to Sammobile download the firmware and use Odin....

I am keen for the Marshmallow update for the HTC Desire 820. I see it is being released by HTC.

 

I am happy now since my last few phones that I can uninstall free Optus apps if I want, but Facebook and Twitter and a host of other apps are forced on this phone and not uninstallable. Is that something Optus does or HTC?

 

The way i see it, if it is free to get from the Google store I will get it if i want it. Otherwise, it is just using my limited internal storage.

 

I am happy to wait longer for an update if it means that there is no bloatware.

I was wondering if you are working on the LG G4 6.0.1 update as the 6.0 is causing my phone to unable to receive or send MMS messages. I have tried calling and get hung up on been into two different stores saying they also get hung up on. This has now been for over 2 months. Can you please provide some information. Thank You

Hey Surfkid88, can I ask if you've tried doing a backup and restore to see if was an issue with the installation? In some cases, doing a fresh install can resolve some issues. Keep us posted on how you go.

Hi @Shae I Have tried to restore to original software and reinstalled and still did not worked. I have checked and it is a known issue with LG which they have fixed in their update of 6.0.1. I am just now waiting on Optus to say they are going to release this update.
