I'm in the same boat. There must be some other imei or region lock going on. Or maybe it's by variant? Mine is the CPH2173 12GB.
Wojtas ja mam ten sam wariant co Ty i mam C47 ale w żaden sposób nie mogę przejść na C60

Mod Edit: English Translation Below

Wojtas, I have the same variant as you and I have C47 but I can't switch to C60 in any way

Same here, Tried numerous regions but no update yet. It's not unusual for updates to get pushed out by IMEI batches so hopefully we'll get it soon!

for those who do not arrive (even by restarting the phone + vpn tunnelbear Belgium), do you have this message every time or not when looking for an update?

I also tried the tutorial above @Fredo2, but nothing to do it does not change anything.

for info I am in France on orange operator

Hey guys. Both me and my wife have a CPH2173. Mine is in Android 12 but hers is still in Android 11. We both live in Germany. Any idea on why is this difference? I see people talking about VPNs, but we are both in Germany. Any ideas? Thanks!

Guys, since I upgraded to version c60 I can no longer record videos with film mode, do you also have this problem?

    Can you guys launch Google Assistant with the Power button on version C.61? Mine stopped launching after this update (0,5s press on power button, option active under settings). Google Assistant does launch if I manually open it from the app drawer.

    No, doesn't appear so. I get the little haptic feedback after 0.5s but nothing happens.

    👍 I may return with future update news going forward for those who would welcome it, but meh... If I do, I'm not correcting heresay or stupid, I'm not going to dignify petulant rants with a response.
    My source is not just a customer service rep or a Twitter bot, it's from the team developing these updates.
    I forgot how tedious it was to be part of the tech community.

    I find it really amazing how much one or the other complains and complains as if their life depends on this update. Constructive criticism makes sense, but switching this talk to another manufacturer is annoying. Just do it and keep quiet because nobody wants to know.
    Well people have the freedom to express their views, experiences and compare to other manufacturers.

    It's not the end of the world no, however it's also not acceptable when A. Said company says they will deliver a patch/security patch each month for their flagship only to drop the ball neigh on immediately and make cr*p excuses as to why and B. When they are lagging behind other manufacturers I mean Sony & Samsung have gotten theirs out to flagships and mid range phones.

    Yet here some of us are 2 months+ out of date.

    I complain a lot because I paid a LOT for the phone and those updates were promised until it magically disappeared and that effected the decision making for the purchase.

    I use my handset for everything including my workplace (I work in IT) and due to the data we store/access the devices local storage need to be encrypted as well as being up to date on Security patched too, not 2, 3, 4 months out of date :/ .

    That's why I'm vocal about it, I don't and didn't need to explain myself but chose to so I don't come across as being one of these uncompramising, keyboard warriors 😂.

    But at the end of the day I've paid a lot for the device, part of the marketing/site info was clearly not true and that would have potentially Influenced that, same with them also disappearing the LTPO part of the Screen section 😅.

    Ontop of that I'm expecting these patches to fix known bugs and irritating issues, but in the meantime having to just deal with them.

    I do really like the phone the camera's are amazing next to none! UI feels great, feature set is great along with the charging speeds and how nice the Phone feels and looks physically.

    So it's a shame that they are dropping the ball and just vaguely saying eventually it will come when other manufacturers are already there.

    They want to charge a premium and compete with other premium manufacturers like Samsung etc then they need to be justifying and earning that premium cash, competing on all fronts including software development, patches and OS updates.

    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.

    I'm back with some vague news.
    The rollout is / was delayed due to "stability issues" & GUI needed some minor tweaks.
    Apparently areas of Guangdong / Shenzhen have been put into rolling lockdowns recently that may further hamper their progress.
    Was unable to get any clarification on what this means in an ETA for us, but I've been assured it's a number 1 priority.
