    Honestly it only takes about 5 minutes (not including actually updating) to do it the Charles way if you know what you're doing.
    I've never rooted or unlocked the bootloader or anything like Charles before. It took me 10 minutes to do. Very easy. I just read it a few times , looked at the Charles app a bit before actually doing it , and when I finally went to do it ,was a cinch.

    It is actually the right build for the right model you have. Folks who are comfortable finding this information have shared the response codes for all the models. It is just that you are requesting it manually from the official servers earlier rather than being pushed at a certain bucket. The only thing you get into is that you may have some early bugs. Yes, if you request the update for a different model than your model, you just install a different build and does not bring/corrupt your phone down. You can easily rollback to EMUI 4.0 build from the instructions available in Honor site for your specific model.

    Of course, this is not for normal folks and I would recommend to wait in that case.
    right build or not... it hasn't been pushed to your phone yet. If you try to update other than through an approved method then honor would be within their legal rights to deny warranty.

    Granted it is unlikely to have any problems and honor may honor warranty repairs regardless.... Just that it is a risk.

    I thought I read last Sunday evening that Nougat was starting to roll out OTA? I am in the USA and I see nothing yet.

    Depends on where you look for the info. From collecting various responses in the XDA forums, its rolling out in batches. Even folks who arent in Beta have received updates in the USA and other regions. So, its is certainly going to be soon.

    Agreed...
    Major concern with Android handsets these days "will they or won't they"
    Everytime I shop these new phones it's a major concern for me now.

    At least Huawei/honor has promised updates for users.
    Hoping they keep backing up their words...

    They have done pretty well on the honor 8. On the honor 5x... Not so much.

    Here's some irony. I've had the honor 8 Since September and always seem to get the updates a little later than most. Yesterday my wife bought an H8 to replace a crappy S7 edge. We get it home, set up, and the base updates installed. About an hour later, the Nougat update came through. I still haven't received it, but was nice to get a little preview. looks like it really increases the usability of the phone. Greatly looking forward to it.

    Wow, are you serious?! That's really surprising. Hasn't hit my phone yet as of 2 days ago.

    I'm guessing it must be the public release now if it hit a brand new phone! That's good news for everyone because it means the rollout has started.

    I still have not received my update as of yet. I assume they release them randomly by regions or something. I'm in the South East I suppose being in Mississippi. Anyone on here a state over in any direction of me receive their update if you have an Honor 8? I guess I'm not a Jedi yet as I've not learned patience lol. Maybe I should try the dark side of the Force and see if my update will show
