Unfortunately at this moment there is no word when Rogers will release the update. Please visit the OS Upgrade Schedule Thread and keep checking it to see more updates, if anything changes I'll post here too!

Rogers needs way more transparency when it comes to updates. We go through this with every version of Android .... people ask, Meowmix or one the other moderators give the same answer time and time again "watch the OS update page".

I'm sure it's been said before maybe even by me .... we want to KNOW what's in the works. We don't need dates set in stone. The software team can simply say "we are working on the Nougat update for the S6 and S6 Edge but do not have an ETA at this time". That would make many of us happy and save me the trouble of installing another carrier's firmware. I don't mind waiting .... it's the not knowing that's REALLY REALLY getting annoying.

It's bad enough we aren't getting the security patches.

Hello @JoePoel

There isn't much for me to say other then that unfortunately. Even Telus pushed back their updates for this device just yesterday without any notice or a reason...


Unfortunately I can't say much other then what I can say and what I know. Anyways as for Rogers, i do agree they need more information to be given out as their customers did pay a hefty price for this device months or so ago. So they need more information but the only time they update or give more information, is when they get it from the back end office or development team.

It'd be nice if you could ay least say that you will be releasing for sgs6. Right now it's not clear if you even will be releasing Android 7 for it.

Hello @obscured

I don't work for Rogers. Any information they give out, I give out here. So unless they give me or I hear information I can't post that. I do believe they will be only time will tell when they announce it.

Why do you respond if you do not work for Rogers and have no useful information to provide?

Is there not someone from Rogers that can step up and deal with questions from their customers? This isn't a question requiring knowledge of string theory to answer.

Hello @rzanatta

They will post the exact same information as what I posted above. They would provide u the same message and or similar message.

Also seeing as this is a public forum, anyone has the ability to respond and help out others and bring their opinion or say onto a post. You might think it's not useful but some do. You won't get the answer you are looking for unless Rogers development team and back end office gives out the information to the staff. Then the staff will update the OS Upgrade Schedule Thread and the information will be available there. Very simple. I know plenty that are with all big 3 carriers and waiting for the update as well. Sadly my neighbour is as well.

If you want a Rogers rep to give u the same information I gave above, be my guest and message one of them on here or call Rogers and speak to them. 🙂

Hello @obscured

Seems like Telus removed the update all together from their site as well.

This does not look good at all. Seems like they removed it for a reason. MS will contact them. Maybe that is why Rogers did not post anything as if they did, users would believe its coming, then changing it and removing it would cause more problems.

Hey @Meowmix .... I know you've been a long time Community Expert and I do appreciate the help you give to the community and anything I say is never directed at you personally. Mostly I'm venting but maybe a Roger's higher up might read something we post and act in a way to alleviate the concerns of their customers. Not likely .... but hey, it doesn't hurt to try.

That being said .... Nougat is rolling out to the S6 and S6 Edge in India. Really? India? Are our telecomm companies really that far behind?

Hello @JayPoel

No worries :). I see your point and understand it as well!

Telus seems to have released it as well for the S6 edge + only.

As for the S6 and S6 edge, this is what they said

" We do intend to bring Nougat to the S6 but we’re currently working to ensure the best possible experience for our users. The release date will be updated as soon as we’re certain the experience will be seamless,” said the spokesperson."

So who knows what's going on.

Hello @rzanatta

Only for the S6 edge+. Not for the S6 and S6 edge.

Hello @shipwama88

The update was for the S6 to 7.0 Nougat was released on May 1st as per the OS Upgrade Schedule Thread. If you have not gotten it yet, it could be that it's still being pushed don't in stages. I would suggest try doing a factory reset on the device to see if that will bring up the update.

Re: Android 7 for galaxy s6 edge

Well i did the Factory reset.

Didnt push the update on to me

Current version G920W8VLU5CPK4

G920W80ya5cpk4

g920w8vlu5cpk4 is what it says.

 

AGain i had to get a new mother board under warranty by samsung and then it had to be unlocked...

Is there any other way to tell that I actually will get this?

Re: Android 7 for galaxy s6 edge

EVen more confusing to me

Again i had my phone warrantied by samsung this was an actual phone bought through rogers and now when i did the factory reset... it brings up the apps into my phone My telus and Telus apps but i have never been a telus customer..

Please help

Hello @shipwama88

It doesn't matter if the motherboard was changed by Samsung due to a tech issue. The update will come. Just wait for it to show up and it will come. :). It does take time so a bit of patience is needs.

Re: Android 7 for galaxy s6 edge

Thanks Meowmix

I apreciate it,

I will try to have patience, i really want to get this, hopefully it all works out i am confused why i got those telus apps

Hello @shipwama88

Sometimes when changing the motherboard, they may install another firmware from another carrier but it won't stop updates coming L
