Update 5.0.0 Nougat 7.1.2 for BQ Aquaris X5

  • We have released update 5.0.0 for your BQ Aquaris X5.

    This update will take place OTA, meaning you will be asked to download and install it when your device is connected to the internet.

    The following is a complete list of the improvements and fixes:

    • Android 7.1.2 Nougat 

    If you wish, you may install the update manually by downloading the BQ Firmware Flash Tool from the following link:

    Before carrying out the manual installation through the hard-reset method, please remember to back up your data since this process will delete it all. If you need help, see this article.

    • If you have altered your device's original firmware (rooting, recovery, deletion of system applications...) the update process might present you with some problems. Our advice is that you update your handset only after making sure that it has been previously returned to its original state.
    • Those users who have an SD card configured as internal memory will have to wait a while after installing the update to be able to see all the installed apps as available. Reading data from an external SD takes longer than reading from internal memory.

  • Thank you for your continuing work on 'old' devices :)
  • Unfortunately, in my case downloading OTA of the new fimware always fails. After some percentage of the data has been downloaded, I get repeatedly the same error message, indicating that an error occured.

    Now, after about 15 to 20 trials (it took me about one day to do this), downloading finally succeeded. Installation of the new firmware was without any problem.
  • Now, when I try to download OTA the firmware on the phone of my wive, again it fails repeatedly. The BQ APP on the phone provided for downloading seems to be quite unstable.
