    We have just published update 4.8.1 for your BQ Aquaris X5. This update will be delivered to your device OTA, so your device will ask you to download and install it when connected to the internet.

    It contains the following improvements and fixes:

    • Android security patch level March 2017
    • Call registry deleted for 08082000247  
    • New Camera version

    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.

    NB: 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.

  • So i did the update yesterday, and since then I haven't been able to get service on my BQ Aquaris X5.
    When i search for available networks it just says "Error while searching for networks."
    I tried resetting the phone to factory settings. I have since tried flashing with older versions of the firmware with no luck. I tried my SIM-card in another phone, it works just fine. I also tried toggling the airplane mode on/off in all the menus where i could find it. All with no luck. I have run out of ideas, any suggestions?
