The Playbook

  • Manufacturers make the phones and the software updates that go with them. When an update’s sent to us, we test it to make sure your phone won’t go all SkyNet, and then beam it down to you. Software updates are a bit like blockbuster movies too – manufacturers release them at different times around the globe. So keep this in mind when you see on the web that Narnia got the new version of Android before us

Check out the whole software update process in our 3 part blog post, If you’re keen for all the nitty-gritty.

  • Just like Windows won’t work on an iPhone, we can’t hack the matrix and update phones we didn’t sell. If you got your phone from another telco (you know who), retailer or from overseas (yes, this includes our Vodafone cousins), we aren’t able to update it
  • Because we can’t update phones from anywhere else, we can only spill the beans on updates for Vodafone Australia devices. As soon as we intercept the coded messages, it goes straight in this weekly post. So, if it’s not in the blog, we don’t know... yet
  • We’ve got a few easy guidelines for when you’d like to comment or ask questions. This helps keep the blog safe for everyone. They’re short, sweet and will help you master the force

Got questions?

We've got answers! Double check we haven’t answered your question in The Playbook above, then post below.

@MihirPanchal testing hasn't started yet - until it's finished, Vodafone won't know an ETA for release to customers. Sit tight - it's still a couple of weeks away at least.

can you please tell me when my HTC 8X is likely to receive the Windows Cyan upgrade. I got this phone under a Vodafone contract and I've read that the upgrade will be available for this model

I really wonder given the official Kitkat for S4 4g LTE has been released on July 24/07/14, it would be worthwhile to update via Kies and get the things done rather than waiting for Voda to stuff around.

@burningrage  I doubt that you can update the GT-I9506 from Kies. I think that the update has just been released for Europe, New Zealand and Singapore. So Australia is the only country that Samsung didn't release this update for.. :-/Capture.PNG

So is the software update come every Thursday or just on when it ready? I mean when is the next one? 14 or 15 of August?
