Essential released their june security update last thursday, any idea when you guys will be sending it out?  Other carriers usually send it out the day Essential releases it but Koodo/Telus are usually the only ones that do it later.

Have you checked your phone for an update or are you just waiting for it to do it automatically? I know of Koodo users with the Essential that have already received it. Check for an update manually if you havent already done so.

Koodo answered my tweet and told me they don't have an ETA yet so I have no clue how you got it without removing your sim.

All I can say is that it was done with a Koodo sim in it. It was received automatically without having to check for an update. No idea if this matters or not but this phone was running the 8.1 beta before the official version was released.

You mentioned Reddit so maybe you have already seen this thread. Some Koodo users are saying they have received it and some are saying they havent.

I have a hard time believing you did it with the Koodo sim in.  I've been checking manually everyday and still nothing.  Koodo's twitter is also telling me that updates take time... even though it's now been out for over a week and a half for other carriers.  What is so special about koodo and telus that theirs is taking so long?

I got the update without a SIM in it at all. Are you running the Android P beta by chance?

Nope, running unrooted 8.1.0 with may 5, 2018 security update.  Weird, a few of us on reddit aren't getting it.

I might try booting without my sim and see if that does the trick.

I may have done a factory reset on the phone while having no SIM in the phone I'm not sure as it's my second back up phone that I just fool around on when my Pixel 2 XL and S9+ die or to cast to one of my chromecasts. I have a feeling I may have but not sure
