The AXON 7 is scheduled to receive a number of progressive updates including several Android Nougat updates over the coming months. To be able to do this there is at least one further update for Android Marshmallow that is referred to as the "B10" update.
The "B10" update was available by FOTA but after a number of users reported issues we have taken it down and opt'ed for the SDcard method for the update until the issue for users for the FOTA method is understood and resolved.
Below is the information required to upgrade your AXON 7 (AU) edition to the new "B10" firmware using the SDcard method.
This process is used when you have a normally functioning AXON 7 handset. this update is only for the AXON 7 model and not the AXON Mini or AXON 7 Mini. If you have an AXON 7 that is not booting or is booting only to the Recovery Menu then read the included Instruction PDF file from the top of Page 4 where the Section B. Forced upgrade method is detailed.
AXON 7 setup for the update ----> Remove the SIM card from the handset and factory default it after backup of your content if you have been using the device for weeks or more. If it is a brand new device then don't install the SIM, and only install the SDcard and power on. Skip through the wizard and once you are on the idle screen connect to the PC and set the USB connection mode to Media device MTP.
Once you have these items you can proceed
You should now have a AXON 7 upgraded to the "B10 Firmware". In a few weeks you will be doing this process again and updating to Android Nougat (7.0). More on that in the coming weeks.
