With the iOS app you have to actually accept the update, it will not install on your headphones automatically. From what I gather, the Android app with *not prompt* you at all and do it automatically. So based on your device, make the choice and peek at your firmware version. Also, if I recall correctly, the Bose updater for your computer (BTU?) would also prompt you, but someone can correct me.
Hi, I really really feel sorry for you....nightmare situation from which it appears very difficult to recover to a ‘last-known-good-Firmware’. Maybe go into a local Bose store - whilst it’s still open - and see if the (probably very disenchanted) staff will go beyond to try and help?
I agree about the iOS App; you have to initiate the Download and even during it you can close the App to stop the download. You also then have to manually start the Installation....so you have 2 ‘lives’ to stop any Update.
it was somewhere in this a real how to do step by step but i cannot find it
i think it was something with flightmode ?
but i am not sure and so afraid to do wrong
before i loved Bose but after this it is more love/hate...

I agree it’s purely a matter of luck whether any purchaser knows about this issue. As it’s (nearly) always best practice to update to the latest firmware when you buy a new device, I still can't get my mind around the fact that 4.5.2 wasn't pulled MONTHS and MONTHS ago. This is so irresponsible of the Vendor imo.

So, just to recap
It's been over 6 months now that this problem has not been fixed in any way?
I'm just looking right now whether to buy qc35ii or to go for alternatives. This problem is killing the decision for me to be honest (because I'm afraid of what Bose will do next, next time they release a new product they will again reduce the quality of previous products (with the update method, as they have done now for qc35ii after 700 flopped) to boost up the sales of the new product. This is a serious problem.
