Hey @Frans737

 

Do you know if Huawei has plans to actually release any updates for the G7 or Ascend Mate 7 any time soon?

Hi @mobidk I read yesterday that Huawei is testing Lollipop for the Ascend P7, I have also read somewhere else (about 2 months ago or so) that Huawei will eventually update most devices to Lollipop but didn't give any ETA.

 

The best thing will be to wait and see what happens

I just downloaded Marshmellow for my Ascend Mate 7 and it's running great! It warns you during the upgrade that it's going to wipe your device, but that didn't happen, it kept all my settings and icons in place - just upgraded to MarshMellow with very little hassle at all!

Re: Updating device software on a Huawei running EMUI 3.0

Will the Vodacom (C316) G7 ever be updated? It's more than a year and a half later, and I still have not received any updates! Other countries are currently on Marshmallow, and here we're still stuck on KitKat! It's really frustrating that other Vodacom devices (LG and Samsung), in my experience, get frequent OTA updates, yet Huawei devices never seem to get updates!
