I've just sideloaded 016.A4 onto UK google purchased pixel 6. I have no idea what was on there before - d'oh
What are the ramifications of this??
It seems fine so far. 5G signal is better. FP reader is better. battery life seems worse but that will hopefully settle.
Should I panic??
Now I've been using for a bit, 5G is definitely better (i.e. it grabs onto it more often even if a little weak) 4G has taken a backwards step however
I don't think it matters, even unlocked folks are seeing signal losses. I think I'm one of them but I still have signal, it just appears to be worse than before. I think this is also leading to more battery drain. I'm on Verizon as well and sideloaded the 017 version.I have a Pixel 6 from Verizon on Verizon. I sideloaded the US version. Everythings been good except my signal. I used to bearly get service at the home but I always had it. Now it doesn't stay connected at all at all home. Anyone with a Verizon pixel sideload? Seems like everyone on here is using an unlocked device.
That's an old one. So you're still on the October security patch level then. I'm not sure what's going on with these updates but there is a later Nov update which you might want to sideload. I'd stay away from the December one until they fix it. This is one horrible rollout.
I'm not hoping for an update anytime soon. I stopped checking the system update does not matter whether we scream or not the update will come whenever they want. LOL
The Pixel team paused the December software update to Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices after some users reported calls were dropping or disconnecting. We have now identified a fix that will roll out in a software update by late January. This update will also include all the fixes and improvements that were originally planned in December. If you received the December software update on Pixel 6 or Pixel 6 Pro and are still experiencing mobile connectivity issues, you can revert to the previous software version using the Android Flash Tool (flash.android.com) and performing a factory reset. Please back up your phone before restoring to the previous software version. If you are not experiencing mobile connectivity issues, no action is required. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we roll out the fix.
List of counties here https://support.google.com/pixelphone/thread/139017133/google-pixel-update-december-2021Too many people are saying the update is released in countries other than the USA. It's nowhere in the wild.
Edit: apologies for that. I have looked everywhere for any mention of it anywhere and found nothing. Then this popped up on my phone, I'm in the UK
