Update 5.1.0 Nougat 7.1.2 for BQ Aquaris M5

  • We have released update 5.1.0 for your BQ Aquaris M5.

    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:

    • Low intensity of the LED when charging 
    • Call recording in external applications fixed
    • Low volume in Bluetooth calls
    • Charging the device with the cable has been optimised

    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.

  • Hola!
    Yo no he recibido la actualización via OTA.
    Mi telefono es libre y hasta ahora siempre he recibido las actualizaciónes.
  • Same here. Update is not offered via OTA?

  • It's almost a month since the announcement and my M5 keeps saying there are no updates available... Where's the OTA? I don't want to wipe the phone comletely just to be able to install a bugfix update.

    edit 18-03-20: OTA update from 5.0.0 to 5.2.0 successful, everything seems OK.
