Thanks to our friend @hikari_calyx, who provided Internal OTA Update zip package to Android Pie for Nokia 8, we can test it before Nokia release it. The link contains two zips
1) December patch for Oreo for Nokia 8
2) Update to Pie for Nokia 8

Link:
https://mega.nz/#F!W50gzawY!nC8Yb9yE6n08gGafFi700A

Preconditions:
1) All must be Stock, no root, magisk, xposed, no mods etc.

Steps you have to do is:
1) Download NB1-488L-0-00WW-B01-488K-0-00WW-B01-update.zip - this is December Security Patch
2) Update manually (2 ways)
a)
- Copy the file on internal memory root folder
- Dial
Code:
*#*#874#*#*
and there will be possibility of update (this way you may use this guide https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk/blob/master/docs/tutorials.md#ota-installation to keep Magisk)

b)
- Connect your phone to PC
- Go to stock recovery (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RmewL1i50c0)
- Choose Apply Update from ADB,
- Type
Code:
adb sideload path_to_zip/NB1-488L-0-00WW-B01-488K-0-00WW-B01-update.zip
where path_to_zip is a path to the location of the file
- Wait and reboot phone, you should have December Security Patch

3) Repeat whole steps froim point 2) for the NB1-5110-0-00WW-B03-488L-0-00WW-B01-update.zip
4) Since @hikari_calyx provided us next internal update, repeat steps for NB1-5110-0-00WW-B05-5110-0-00WW-B03-update.zip and NB1-5110-0-00WW-B07-5110-0-00WW-B05-update.zip.

5) If you want to root your phone, here you may find stock and patched with twrp boot.imgs provided by @THMSP
https://mega.nz/#F!r3RUnaiC!p8FZqNpiPLK8XNwYusJv1Q

Like I wrote at the beginning, it is internal update, so I would strongly recommend to unlock bootloader in case something goes wrong. Additionally it is not known at the moment whether it can be possible to update to official version when it comes, so most likely downgrade will be necessary.

As always, you do all on your own risk and I won't be responsible for any damage you do to your phone.

PS: Here is the proof:

I just tried to install on a Mexico TA-1012 and not working, returns an error "package is for source build 00WW_4_88K but expected 00WW_4_84G, installation aborted"
Did you know what is the problem?

Guys i accidentally flashed stock november boot to october system while doing that now my phone got stuck on Nokia screen and hardwarebuttons is not working. I tried adb command device gets listed but it says unauthorized. What should i do?

To be clear - You flashed November /boot partition to October /system partition? Switch slots from active to inactive. If you flashed November boot to October boot, flash again October boot. All in all you can use OST LA to downgrade and upgrade again.

There are two files, please flash the smaller one first via any of the method mentioned, and then the larger.

Yes, I know and thats what I tryied to do but unsuccessfully

---------- Post added at 01:30 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:24 PM ----------

Seems the colleague is on SW older than 4.88B (which would be the update from May), therefore he cannot use ADB sideload directly.

So updates from 488B to 488K need to be uploaded.
After that error, I donwloaded the updates from June to november which someone else's uploaded to his gdrive but I got the same error when tried to update via sideload :(

    Can you also tell me how to do this? Thanks :)

    so if u want to downgrade from A9 to A8.1 u have to do next steps:
    1. place this firmware https://mega.nz/#!mRZHDaJI!3KrT2F0ZE...KQux5EvPWVGI_4 to the root of the sd card
    2. switch to recovery (https://www.hardreset.info/devices/nokia/nokia-8/recovery-mode/)
    3. in recovery choose "apply update from sd card", and choose your firmware file
    4. in recovery choose "wipe data"
    5. reboot.

    thats all. u have a8.1 again

    There is a chance that you lose possibility for later OTA updates. I would not try to update without unlocking bootloader

    How does this possible? Without rooting the phone you can`t access root folder, or i am wrong?
    Internal memory root folder, not /
