There have been some issues with T-Mobile device updates lately, with T-Mo pausing updates for both the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30 shortly after they began rolling out. Now it looks like two more devices have had their update put on hold.
T-Mobile has paused updates for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+. The updates began rolling out on April 13th but were put on hold a day later. Some S9 and S9+ owners say that they got an update, but many others never did.
I’ve reached out to T-Mobile to ask why the update was paused and when a new update might be released, but haven’t gotten a response yet. Some users have reported that their device ended up bootlooping when trying to install the update, so that may have something to do with the update being paused.
While some people say that they were able to install the update without issue, it’s a real problem that others were encountering bootloops that may have been a result of the update. It’s now been more than a month since T-Mobile paused this update, even though we’re just now learning about it, so hopefully a new update will be released soon.
Were you able to install last month’s update for the T-Mobile Galaxy S9 and S9+?
