No and the word from Huawei Canada support is there is no guarantee our version of the P20 Pro will get it.
Still haven't received any security updates since Sept update (8.1.0.120) on my CLT-L04 C792

Same here, have September 1, 2018 update... 8.1.0.120 with EMUI 8.1. From what I'm reading, seems to be around December 10, give or take a few days.

Honestly its going to take forever for these carriers to test and approve it. I would hedge my bets on January maybe February for the pie update.

What I did was rebrand my p20 pro (does cost a little money around 70-80$ cad) to CLT-L09 and on the November security patch :) if good software matters to you id spend the money, even though it is stupid to have to essentially pay to have access to the latest software.

Definitely. Mine is the CLT-L04 model which is intended for North America, including Canada, Mexico, and the U.S., not Hong Kong.

Rebranding P20 Pro

I thought about this but honestly I got extremely confused with the different rebranding versions out there. Can you tell me exactly what you rebranded to? Did you keep the region at C792 or change it to C432? And just out of curiosity why L09 and not L29? I thought L29 was the European version? Or am I just even more confused than I thought lol.

Honestly I spoke with the admin from ministryofsolutions and he said that the L09 and c432 was the fastest brand to get updates. Other than that I was probably just as confused as you were haha.

Haven't used this before - did a full download of the OTA package with no idea how to rename to install. Having said that I did run the firmware availability and it said that the firmware is not approved which I'm assuming means I'm going to get an error during the update. Probably because I'm still on locked bootloader it's looking for the carrier branded one.....?

I think we still need to wait a little more to see an OTA.

What provider is it ? And I don't know if we have differents build depending of the carrier.

Is the kernel the exact same version on your phone right now ?

Kernel: [email protected]#1 build on Mon Sept 3 12:03:42 CST 2018 ?

Yup same Kernel. Running 8.1.0.120 C792 with Koodo/Telus. Just had a chat with Ministry of Solutions he said $70 to provide bootloader unlock code and rebrand but I can do everything myself honestly with just the bootloader unlocked.

    Wasn't able to upgrade to emui 9 at all. Just downloads. Hits 1% on install and then fails.
    Same for updated to the "new" 120 build of emui 8.

    Ya, we've all had that happen. The problem is that I don't think any of us are approved (according to FF) to have our phones upgraded EMUI 9.0.
    Makes me wonder though because when I check firmware access in FF, it says it communicates with Huawei severs to verify. So, if I am not approved from a Huawei perspective, doesn't that mean I am not approved from my carrier? In otherwords, once I get approved from Huawei, it's only then I should expect a OTA update to be pushed to my phone from my carrier. Frig, I really miss my Pixel 2 now lol.

    Yeah, you can't even unlock without paying $50. I paid like $340 for this phone. That's more than 10%.

    S9 was also at the same price. I got one and it's really much better sorry.

    I am happy you are happy with your S9, and we are all entitled to our own subjective opinions. Go sell the P20 Pro and move on then.

    I just purchased my P20 pro on Sunday from Telus and had the update same day.
    Cheers!
    Ha, was going to say something rude but hell it's not your fault. Congrats on the new up to date phone - welcome to the forum

    Cheers !
