Our canary in Nevada got this update an hour ago.

So many versions out there. Can’t even keep up just like the price changes. :p

I’m not the Nevada car. I’m the CA car on Teslafi.

I voted yes on the poll here.. But technically I didn't install it. Should I change it to no? :p

When do you get your car back so you can look at the release notes? Asking for a friend.

I dropped the car off this morning. My passenger side headlight's LED strip went out. I made the appointment like 2 months ago. Just got a push notification on my phone saying the car was done. I'll text the service person to see if that is really the case already.

I note in Teslafi that 2019.8.1 had had 5 installs but only 4 showing in detail list — wonder if the 5th is a Model Y, or did one car go to 8.1 and then was taken back down to an earlier build?

Every install is logged with TeslaFi, even if they rolled back or go to a newer version. Something really happened and is being filtered out by TeslaFi.
Anyway I don't believe it is a Y. Tesla got a prototype at TeslaFi before the official review ... sounds really unlikely.

Now up to 8 (minus the one that disappeared). Moving quicker than I would have thought. Maybe this is the release that Elon was talking about for the 03/15 release and 5.15 is the one thats overdue but got held up with bugs. Exciting!

The two lists aren't always in sync and seem to be calculated separately. The "totals" list on the bottom is updated on a much longer delay than the car-by-car update log at the top.

...though it's weird, the lists just updated for me, and they now show to 11 and 7. It doesn't look like 2019.8.1 installs are being rolled back to an earlier version, so I'm not sure what accounts for the discrepancy or the decreasing totals for 2019.8.1.

I got it today in Los Angeles. Dog mode, Summon with key fob, Sentry....I thought I had these already.
Nothing about increased power.

I wonder if it has some of the supercharger-related stuff? Preconditioning when navigating to a supercharger, ability to use V3, etc.. Those things might not show up in release notes.

Yes, the v.3 supercharger update started with the 7.11 firmware
So maybe 2019.8.1 includes faster Supercharging? Someone get out there, find a lightly used Supercharger and see if it charges faster than 120 kW and if the taper starts later!
