    Google has released an August 1, and the normal August 5 security vulnerability's, no updates released for Priv, (or any other BB device).
    It's now August 13, normally there would be several threads and hundreds, (well, maybe dozens) of posts bemoaning this lack of updates, or excusing BB for lack of.
    What happened? Has everybody given up on updates?

    The asia pac privs usually get their security updates around the third week of the month ish, so I don't even look for nagging threads/posts here on cb until closer to that time frame. 😀

    I haven't exactly given up on updates. So far my PRIV has received at least 1 security update every month.
    My expectations for when that update will arrive have definitely changed though.
    I am really disappointed in how BlackBerry is handling both updates, and communication about those updates.

    I have given up on updates. I only want nougat at this point. the monthly security updates are so useless imo unless they fix a major threat which is rarely the case

    In my opinion, carriers being slow to issue updates is a slightly different problem than BlackBerry being slow to create them.

    Build AAN335 has been certified on PTCRB, so at least we know what to look for, but not when.

    Yes, by now we are all aware of that. However, I don't recall seeing any announcement around here about BlackBerry releasing the August update. It's usually on the front page.

    Yes I know. I just think that the issue of you not receiving the July update from your carrier is a slightly different issue from BlackBerry not releasing the August update yet.

    For one thing, I doubt your carrier has released an arrogant blog post implying that they are the best at releasing security updates, and that timely updates are absolutely crucial.

    Sheesh! Chill, man! I'm just agreeing with the OP. And it doesn't really matter, at this point, which one we are talking about, BlackBerry or the carriers. At least this month anyway

    Usually one day after the 5th, (obviously the 6th), if no security patch from BB, there is at least one thread questioning it. Those with non factory unlocked, non N America versions expect it to be later. By now, over a week later, there should be several threads going, (judging by past history).
    --- Somebody changed my thread title - it was "Missing Thread(s) and updates".
    No update yet doesn't really surprise me, no threads talking about it does!

    Prob a moderator that doesn't understand my warped sense of humor.
    Thought I was seriously inquiring about the late update.

    Lack of update isn't funny.
    Lack of a bunch of people complaining, or, defending BB, has a certain twisted dark humor.

    I have a hunch it's AAN335, but if you could check back once you get around to installing it that would be good.

    Yes, that is the build number. Aug 5

    You know it's messed up when @Bla1ze has to step up and ask them, only be treated with a canned DM message.

    This month, Asus, Nokia, and Samsung all beat them. Yes, freakin' Asus beat BlackBerry.
