    Here is the Mar 1 patch (bolted onto the May 2020 OS) for the KEY².

    This OS build is meant only for North American devices - if installed on others, you may lose Google certification.

    This will NOT install on Chinese (BBF100-4), Russian (PRD-63828-006), or Indian (PRD-63828-031) devices.

    This will NOT install on any devices with PRDs ending in -5XX.

    Remove device PIN/password, boot to bootloader screen, and run either flashall or flashallnowipe as per your preference. Note that if you choose to wipe, you do not have to remove your password first.

    Hi @conite - Thanks again for this update . I am curious if there is a need to tie it to the previous OS (May2020) for a 2gb download - or if there is a way to just ship the updated modules as if it was OTA? What prevents that from working?

    amazing news!! key2 life extended!
    wonder if it'll last until the oled, rollable, slider, folding, 5G, from onward is released.

    maybe I can brag to my friend's that I still have the most secure android device lol!

    Thanks @conite

    Not sure what you're asking. The no-wipe autoloader will allow you to update without skipping a beat.

    I think they're worried about the large download size.

    Worked on my BBF100-6, PRD-63828-019

    For some reason this patch shows "March 1, 2021" instead of "March 5" though every patch I've ever seen in a phone's settings showed the 5th of the month, not the 1st.

    Lol, half-patch. Doesn't inspire confidence.

    Reminds me of that patch the Priv got in May 2018. On that one though, the settings still showed October 2017 for some reason.

    Because it wasn't even a compliant half-patch. It only patched a couple of elements - far below the requirements of the 01 designation.
