In theory, this guide will work on every variant of Nokia 6, but you can only use CN Variant ROM.
Update: Until Jan 25th 2019, D1C-612H-0-00CN-B03 (Feb 2019 Update) was the latest release of Nokia 6 2017.

I strongly recommend you to unlock the bootloader before proceed - I won't tell how to unlock the bootloader in this guide.

Take a look to this video first if you want to know the experience of Android Pie: https://youtu.be/izt650UNB5Y

In this guide, I'll provide two different methods to get Android Pie on your Nokia 6.
Both methods will erase your userdata.

Here's an important hint: Nokia 5 (ND1) and Nokia 6 (D1C or PLE) can flash each other's stock firmware, including TA-1000 Chinese firmware.

If you're eager to experience Global Android Pie on your Nokia 6, you can read this guide: https://forum.xda-developers.com/nok...build-t3883901


Method 1: Use OST LA to flash my homebrew firmware
You should be familiar with this method.

1. Download "D1C-612H-0-00CN-B03_Homebrew.7z" from following site:
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=288043
https://tpedutw-my.sharepoint.com/:f...1SIKp-b-sEdzKQ

Note: If you can't extract it correctly, please use 7-Zip ZStandard (not Original 7-Zip) to extract.

Chinese users can download it from Baidu Netdisk instead

2. If you have Android 8.x running with LOCKED bootloader, please downgrade bootloader back before processing. If you have unlocked bootloader, you needn't to downgrade the bootloader.

If you're not using TA-1000, you need to change SKUID to 600CN by following this guide: https://forum.xda-developers.com/nok...dwide-t3808520


3. Open OST LA or NOST and load the mlf file, in download options, only choose "Normal Download" and "Erase userdata".
If your phone boots suddenly when flashing splash, close OST LA and force power off your phone then flash again.
You can download NOST from https://github.com/StollD/NOST

4. All done, enjoy Android Pie.

Method 2: Force OTA Update
1. Download the package "D1C-612H-0-00CN-B03-update.zip" from here:
https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=288069

Or this for Global Android Pie, rename it to "D1C-612H-0-00WW-B03-update.zip":
https://android.googleapis.com/packa...2998aa78c9.zip

2. If you're not using TA-1000 or 1003, rename the package to PLE-612H-0-00WW-B03-update.zip

3. Skip this step if you're using TA-1000.
Non TA-1000 users need to change SKUID to 600CN by following this guide: https://forum.xda-developers.com/nok...dwide-t3808520

4. Place the package to root directory of internal storage.

5. Dial *#*#874#*#* to update.

6. After update installed, it [S]will[/S] may tell you "Encryption failed", click "Factory Reset".

7. Enjoy Android Pie.


FAQ:
Q1: Can I root it?
A1: Yes, but you must have unlocked bootloader, and TWRP is unusable. Also, Magisk 18 is unusable.

Q2: How to downgrade bootloader in case I want to roll back without unlocked bootloader?
