It certainly has been a while since we have done a round-up of all the android software updates that are currently going through or are now delaying to Australian carrier branded android devices and we thought it might be time to bring it back.

So without further ado, here is the software update for the week ending 6th November 2016.

Telstra is still blocking 7.0 on Nexus devices, I had to buy a Vodafone sim to finally get the update

Citation needed. You can also sideload the appropriate OTA update using ADB.

Valid rebuttal for confirmation of the claim… there is something fishy going on and while there are a good number of ways to get the update … with this device there shouldn’t have to be – update should just roll out.
What would be really good to appreciate with whats going on, not only for the 5x users but for Pixel users going forward – remember both were Telstra exclusives.

A 5x that happens to have a telstra sim shouldn’t be sitting back on an August security update!

I concur – I have a Nexus 6P which I had to enrol in the Google Beta program to get the update.
