Any idea about what can I do in order to update to android 12? I have some issues with Android auto, and I would like to restore/upgrade to android 12 instead of android 11 (and probably to android 12 in a few weeks)

Edit: I'm still on c24... It's imposible to update... No c26 option

Tried all vpn locations, no trial version available
No test versions available
Still on Color OS 11

CPH2173_11_A.26​

Which global version u have? Asian? European?

Have u tried to apply for newer version in Trial settings? Software update -> settings -> trial version -> apply. After that there is a slight chance youll get official stable (not beta)

Guys,
I've the bad feeling that ColorOS 12 will not be available in Europe anytime soon.
Please see below a screenshot just downloaded from the OPPO twitter account.
Please read the bottom lines:
"This plan is not available for residents of the European Union......"

Please tell me if I misunderstood.

Cheers,

Albainvetta

I wouldn't worry about that line...
They are just not publishing the Timeline for Europe and therefore it could be available any day...

Just leaving this here to be able to see if there are any updates. A24 version here, italian phone, used in EU.
Same here, Italian phone but used in Belgium. A24 and no update or trial available. From my understanding, no BETA is allowed in EU given the GDPR. We'll get only the stable version, who knows when. Weird is the UK didn't get anything, and they don't have the GDPR not being in the EU.
I'd personally appreciate some transparency from OPPO, but is clear EU is not their main market.

Thanks for clarification, about the beta I mean. Very strange company indeed. They should allow us to install the fw ourselves, like samsung or xiaomi. Annoying.

    If anyone is getting the ColorOS 12 Update coming from the ColorOS 11, please try to search the zip file name on your devices after downloading it.
    If you restart the phone after the installation, the file will be deleted.

    Thank you

    What is the Twitter account for Oppo firmware updates?... maybe we can tell them what we think about their "wonderful updates policy" for their flagship...

    Just for clarity I summarize the situation:
    What you want is personal. You may not even want update, that's your problem. The stable version of coloros 12 was released in October in China, India and other countries around. In Europe in December. But they are just super slow. They didn't have to solve anything, the pixel problem was something else. Just resolved by last update. But let's not talk about updating, let's talk about security . The security patch? You(Oppo) want to be a Big in the mobile world, but you are not able to update the security patches on your flagship. These are the facts, the rest are opinions. They don't matter.
    Oppo support:
    "In regards to your query, kindly be advised ColorOS 12 software upgrade have been confirmed to be roll-out for OPPO Find X3 Pro. All the eligible devices will be receiving the update via OTA (On-The-Air) in batches starting October 2021 onwards.
    ColorOS 12 will be available in all of these countries bit by bit. We will announce the list of countries and regions where ColorOS 12 is availa-ble soon. For the some countries running exclusive carrier version, the updates for ColorOS will be adjusted based on the decisions of the phone carriers.
    That being said, we would not be able to advise the exact time the update will be made available on your device."

    From October till now, a lot Find x3 pro, not received updates but neither received security patch update. Others, only november security patch, and still others (few) also received two updates about color os 12. It just looks like a big mess to me

    Totally agree with you mate.
    They made a flagship, with a flagship price, but a low range software support.
    I think they should put the price down until they will have a proper sw support, just like Google or Samsung.

    So what you're saying is that the OTA files exist and Oppo doesn't want anyone getting their hands on it? Btw would you be able to post the full file name by any chance I may have an Idea thanks
    File is CPH2173_11_C_OTA_1410_all_ad8023_10001010

    What I am saying is this version is in testing. As you will see the number is quite ahead of the version that's gone live in other markets. It may fail testing and require another build.

    I would be breaking the terms of my employment by sharing so I don't want to share until official. As soon as I get the go ahead will share google drive link here.
