Does Koodo follow the Telus device update schedule?

 I've been awaiting the 6.0 update for the Idol 3. 5.0.2 is so poor with memory management, etc. If so, we should get it on or just after 7 July

I'm not sure what the Idol schedule is, but my Note 4 was updated one day later than the Telus version 🙂 So I'd say your estimate might be correct!

Hi Corey, 

Typically Koodo updates a few days after the Telus update schedule. Here is Koodo's update schedule: https://community.koodomobile.com/koodo/topics/upcoming-software-updates

Thanks, Mathieu. I didn't have the right search-fu to find it. But, the update page is pretty empty anyway, right now.  Sophia, the Idol 3 was just added back on the Telus list a few hours ago. It was delayed from May 28 to June 7 to July 7. Te only thing I don't like about this phone is the downgrade I took from 5.1 when I upgraded the phone

@ Corey the page may look empty because we don't show the historical updates only current ones. We are waiting for a green light on the Idol but should be imminent.

That's weird I've been running Android 6.0.1 on my Idol 3 for like 2 months now with no issues so not sure why they would have pulled the update and been 2 months before thry pushed it again. What model number and software build do you have right now?

7srn-udn1 on the 6045l is what I've got. And, you know that I don't wait to be told there's a new version. I've been checking since I got the phone, as my kids had gotten marshmallow on their 3rd gen moto G before i even got the idol 3

That's because each phone manufacturer releases software updates at different intervals. TELUS offers some insight into the inner workings of the software update life-cycle. http://forum.telus.com/t5/Neighbourhood-Blog/Software-Update-Life-Cycle/ba-p/53596
Anyone have any luck finding out when the idol 3 5.5 will get marshmallow?

I''ve been streaming my local CBC radio station from the CBC website, so I don't have to use their buggy app. It looks like the stations won't play from Chrome now. Maybe its the new app permissions?
