If you want to repost this internal OTA to other websites (other than XDA itself), please ask me for permission, thanks.

WARNING!
This is early internal test build, so LATER OTA UPDATES CAN'T BE GUARANTEED!
If you don't have unlocked bootloader, you'll unable to roll back to stable build!
Please be careful when testing!

Now I think it's time to bring you back to canary labs faster than beta labs.

Internal build version: DRG-4040-0-00WW-B01
It will be updated from: DRG-354N-0-00WW-B01, which is released October 2019 Security Update

As I've warned before - having an unlocked bootloader is strongly recommended.

So recent builds removed handy 874 dialing codes, we have to install them under recovery or Nokia Extensions.

Let me tell you how to verify:
1. Dial *#*#227#*#* to check current Version. If older than B2N-354N-0-00WW-B01, update to 354N before proceed.
FYI, 354N is October 2019 Security Update.

Alternately, you can use command "fastboot oem getversions" under fastboot mode / Download mode to check current firmware version.

2. Install DRG-4040-0-00WW-B01-354N-0-00WW-B01-update.zip with Nokia Extensions OTA Update module or adb sideload under recovery.

3. Reboot your phone.

That's it.
If minor fixes released, I will upload them as well, then use the same method to install it.
To root the phone, you may want to use Magisk 20 released today (October 12th, 2019) or newer.

People trying to install Quickswitch with Lawnchair, please be warned as when you set Lawnchair as default launcher, The phone gets stuck on Nokia Logo after a reboot.

Also the mic doesn't pick up voice/noise at all unless you turn on speaker phone.

To get Volte, Go into settings - mobile networks - Turn on Enhanced LTE and select the 4G(Recommended) option.

Adb sideload doesn't seem to work. It finishes quickly and says "Total xfer: 0.00x " with no error, but nothing has changed. Still Android 9.

That's becoz sideload requires you to be on Oct 2019 security patch first.

I don't know exactly, But I think the mic should be affected everywhere.
