I just got my idol 3 ,  3 weeks ago. Maybe I have the latest :)
Have  firmware version  5.02-7SQ8-UD80   and my phone says it is up to date
Do you know what the current firmware version is?

That's the version I have as well, there is another update on the horizon but nobody knows exactly when it will reach Koodo's model all we can do is to keep manually checking for said update. Not a big deal of an update though as it just fixes a few bugs which I personally have not come across on mine.

As per AndroidCentral the OTA update was issued 13 July 2015 .   It also stated it may take awhile to hit everyone's device.  Hopefully it hits mine soon.

Updated today works much better now. I was actually running a US ROM but the official Koodo one works much better so I flashed back.

No more sluggishness and everything seems to be a lot more smooth especially typing and scrolling chrome!

Thanks Koodo!

Did you try turning off the JBL audio effects? That may help.

Chad I can't check because I am using a US ROM. I would flash back to koodo ROM if it has been fixed but do not want to revert back until it has been repaired.

Thank you for the update Spence

So I just bought the idol 3. Anyone know if we're still getting updates? Or should I just switch to the US rom?
