Hard to say, both ways are too frustrating. Of course I would be happy to get a android ten, but yeah your point also have some value
Lets hope that somebody will port the Sirocco Android 10 rom to Nokia 8. I think the chances of one of us doing that are much higher than Nokia doing it. Trust me though, I would love to have android 10 as well

What I'd like from Android 10 is the permission overhaul. More control is always good. Other than that, full system-wide dark mode.

Nokia 8 is a great device, but HMD provides really bad support.
Do I need to remind the compass bug?
So maybe it's for the better that we won't get a new bug-infested update, that will need half a year to get fixed.

Actually Android flagship in 2017 stop in android 9, except the Pixels. So i think, we should not blame HMD for this ending, lets enjoy our nokia 8. I using this phone for 2 years and totally satisfied my choice ?

Google is not the only one. Essential PH-1 and even Oneplus 5/5T will get the 3rd major update. Therefore i for sure blame HMD for lack of respect for their customer base that chose to support Nokia’s reboot from the very first flagship.

Go ahead and update. All major bugs are already patched, battery life is really good, at least for me. No crashes or problems either.

Just updated now thanks man.
Btw is the finger print issue fixed or not? The dissapearing finger print issue.

I actually never got it. I might be a lucky one, or they actually fixed before I updated. I waited myself for the compass bug fix, they fixed that around May, so then I updated. Never got any issues fith fingerprint reader.

    For all those who are still waiting for Pie, this is the captured OTA URL: https://android.googleapis.com/pack.../59bd9a533025ca61629b32eb85fd6e410705c1dc.zip
    Don't worry about the TA-1004 references, the OTA will work on all models.

    If you want to update to Pie directly you can download that zip file and install it by either sideloading it through the stock recovery, or by renaming it to "NB1-5110-0-00WW-B05-update.zip",
    copying it to the root of your internal storage, and then dialing *#*#874#*#*. This also allows you to keep root by installing Magisk to the inactive slot. It doesn't matter which security patch you
    have, you only need a stock boot image. I will fetch stock and TWRP prepatched images later and upload them as well (maybe after christmas though, let's see).

    Have fun with your Christmas Pie! (or rather Dough given the actual features :p)

    (It seems that XDA had a hiccup and posted this 3 times by accident. I updated the post and apologize for potential mail spam.)

    UPDATE: Stock and TWRP-prepatched images: https://bit.ly/nokia-nb1

    Maybe I'm just showing my age, but it seems that many users don't remember what it was like years ago when monthly security updates didn't exist and OS updates were a luxury and usually arrived months later (if at all) and still contained countless bugs and you NEVER got any communication from manufacturers except for "it will be ready soon".

    Now everyone is getting worked up over the OS update being a few days late based on a suggestion from the company on social media that it would be ready in November. I mean it was on Twitter, it wasn't a signed contract.

    Anyone who has actually developed software or built android ROMs will know that it can take time to fix bugs and get a release ready for users. The backlash they would get for releasing an update that wasn't near perfect would be so much worse than any backlash from delaying the release of the update.

    So if they are taking the time to get it right, good. Likely they have learnt their lesson and in the future will be much more vague when communicating with users and will just say "it will be ready soon".

    Me too, it is not fair, and I think that hmd doesn't want to update our Nokia

    You can just sideload the updates yourself. Basically, what you have to do is this:

    • Go to https://bit.ly/nokia-nb1 and download the file "NB1-5140-0-00WW-B05-update.zip" from the folder "OTA"
    • Shut down your phone, then hold volume up while connecting it to a PC via USB
    • When the "No Command" screen appears, hold down the power button and tap volume up
    • Use volume up / down and power to select "Apply update from ADB"
    • On your PC, do adb sideload <path to NB1-5140-0-00WW-B05-update.zip> (if you dont have adb: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2317790)
    • wait until it was applied and then reboot
    It's basically the same as getting the update officially, except that you remove the randomness of a staged rollout.

    Did they really think, that we will buy new phone from them, because we don't want to wait for update of our flagship Nokia 8??? Wow, this is so stupid and disappointing...
