June patch downgrading Android P-powered Nokia 7 Plus units to Oreo

If you are a Nokia 7 Plus user running Android P beta on your unit, you are strongly advised against installing the latest June security update (if you haven’t already). Reason being, those who did are reporting serious issues post update.

Specifically, users say the 1.3GB update is basically a downgrade package, and so it results in applications force closing and even device crashing in some cases. Even the rollback package on the Android P install page is of no use because the June update has a newer time stamp.

Of course, users of beta builds are expecting to face bugs, but situations like these can clearly be avoided in the testing phase at the company level itself.

The only solution that affected users can currently go for is to factory reset their device and return back to Android 8.1 Oreo. And then wait for the company to fix the mess.
