@RKinMTL I have to agree.  There is no rhyme or reason to the order that this discussion is happening in... Can someone that moderates or works for Telus explain why everything is out of order?

Guys, its already 21st Jan.... my HTC ONE M8 is missing the sweetness of Android M.

Very disappointed in Telus as a whole.....the original date to for the update was December 18... Then it was January 7.... A month later and still no update...

@RKinMTL @mhinc & @Jarmin we hear you. 

 

As @RhoLee mentioned ealier, we discovered a few bugs in the latest OS build the Friday prior to the last launch date (Jan 18th). We've been working with HTC to patch them and hope to launch the latest version on Feb 4th.

@A_Kron, what does "we hear you" even mean? I don't own an HTC device; this message board is still terrible to navigate (clicking on the links in the emails notifying me of updates to my subscribed threads like this one results in a blank web browser window); and I am no closer to knowing when my Galaxy S6 will be updated. So, tell me, what do you hear?

@RKinMTL We are migrating to a new community platform tomorrow. The bugs with navigation and errors loading the page should be fixed. More details on the migration can be found here

 

With respect to your comment about the Samsung S6 update, as soon as we have next the build from the OEM, we will update this list with a release date. More information about the software update life-cycle can be found here.

@A_Kron, it is nice to see that you are responsive as an admin here. Thanks for your posts. I do hope the new community platform proves to be easier to navigate. 


I still believe that manufacturers and developers must be providing some sort of schedule to carriers such as Telus, and I still think Telus' customers would prefer for this to be made more transparent. I know I would. And as long as this transparency is not added, I can only assume it's because Telus, for example, doesn't want customers to know how long they take to pass updates on to their customers once they get the builds from the OEM.

Just wanted to update @RKinMTL and @mhinc that the post sorting is working and showing the posted times in the desktop view of the site.

 

Thanks for your patience!

Fingers crossed that the update for the G4 on monday doesn't get delayed!

No Samsung phones. What a joke.

The question is, have other carriers already pushed the Android M update to Samsung phones? That would tell us whether this is truly a manufacturer's delay as Telus would have us believe, or a Telus delay...

@RKinMTL @ogre It doesn't look like Bell and Rogers have posted their update times for the Galaxy lines either...

Hoping the M8 update will still be on schedule for this thursday!

What is the validity of that document posted above by @THE61X?

 

It's dated 29 October 2015, which makes me doubt it's applicable to this thread about Telus in Canada...?

So will the HTC One m9 actually be getting the marshmallow update tomorrow? Or will we all just be getting excited for nothing again? Please respond and let us know if the update will still be rolling out tomorrow. Also, is it 6.0 or 6.0.1?

Great news everyone! Update for HTC M8, and M9 will be released tomorrow. It will roll out gradually for all our customers. 

 

We will follow up later with the build number.
