  • My Nokia 6 TA 1003 is ruined after Oreo 8.0 update. Dolby, VoLTE does not work amymore. Had to get a new mobile. Damn NOKIA.

  • Hi I got ta 1003 and got April 2018 security patch but not 8.1 still on Android 8.0 can I get Oreo 8.1 for my ta 1003

    • I also have the same concern. Anytime I would like to know if it is not a problem of the region because the updates are available according to the regions and AT-1003 was like a version of Nokia 6 or I’m wrong.

  • I got an update to Android 8.1.0 on my Nokia 6 TA-1021 which the installation over OTA went successfully. The only issue I have is that Application notication counter has GREEN dot on the Application instead of NUMBER.

  • I have TA-1021 (INDIA) with build no- 00WW_5_22A. I have downloaded the zip from above link. Then I installed it from stock recovery. But it fails and my phone restarts to recovery menu automatically. I have Oreo 8.0 February Security Patch previously on this phone. Please tell me how to install 8.1 updates with the latest security patch.

  • Hello, I purchased Nokia 6 TA-1003 two months ago. The trouble is that I do not have the recovery mode on. In fact, when I do the manipulation, the phone writes: no command.

    Thank you for helping me on this, please.

  • I am using Nokia 6.1 Plus updated with Android 9.0 but I want Rollback to Android Oreo 8.1. How to get it back? Do you have any solution for it.
