    Update went smooth, even went the adb sideload route since I didn't have an SD card on me.!
    Glad it worked! Presumably you're now without the Pro mode for shooting videos, correct? How about your compass--does that have the problem that some users have reported?

    I never use Pro mode, but it looks like it works? How do I test the Compass? I opened Google Maps and it faced the right way when I rolled around in my chair so it looks like it works?

    It still works for photos in Pie, but not for videos.

    It's especially important in low-light conditions, or if you're recording through a window and don't want the camera to focus on the window itself.

    I do have the compass bug but as far as Pro on Video, it may not be a bug just that changed app and no longer available in video.

    How do you determine if you have this bug?

    It may be intentional, but removing an important feature from the phone is a problem nonetheless. Updates are supposed to make the phone more useful, not less useful.

    You can look at the little compass on google maps but I also installed a compass app from play store and I know which way is north from home and it said I was facing E

    I just downloaded a Compass app from the play store to test and yes it shows me facing the wrong way also. So I went to test Google Maps again and now it shows me facing about 180° in the wrong direction, yet it worked fine earlier. Weird, will this screw up Google Maps while navigating?

    Sorry to hear that. I hope T-Mobile continues to hold off on this update. I haven't heard of any Pie features that are worth the camera downgrade and loss of the compass.

    Well I just drove home from work and Google Maps and Android Auto both work as normal with no GPS issues, which is a huge relief. So do those services not use the compass?

    They can't rely at all on compass information because they have no way of knowing which way the phone is pointing relative to your vehicle.

    However, depending on where you are and what mode of transportation you're using, the directions are sometimes of the form "Head northeast toward ...", relying on the compass to direct you.

    If it does become available and I flashed the AT&T way, how would I go about getting the official TMO update?
