    How many of you guys have gotten the silky update. I did look at EV-FW.com but wanted to get some commentary too. I'm still stuck at 17.17.4 and tired of waiting - this is longest I have waited.

    Not me either. And I've been in the first wave of all new releases for AP2.0 since December.

    Same here! Wondering what sacrifice we need to make to get on the list.

    Should we all drive to a SC now and stage a protest ?

    None yet. But the initial impressions of the 17.22/17.24 releases were kind of mixed.I’d rather them work out the bugs than get something half-baked and be stuck with it until next release.

    It’s odd, because the newsletter and Chris Lattner’s resume all make it sound like it’s done and should’ve been deployed by now.

    Unless, of course, the fact that it isn't is why Lattner had to post that resume.

    I'm still waiting on 17.17.17.

    Looking at Tesla Firmware Upgrade Tracker Web App it looks like the latest, 17.24.28, is going mostly to AP 1 vehicles, followed my Non-AP and then AP 2.0

    I know it's speculative, but at that point, why would Lattner overstate his contributions to Autopilot after he was essentially let go? He could've just as easily said that he was asked to do the impossible in an unrealistic timeline and decided it wasn't a good fit for him, and rested on his earlier achievements and track record for finding future employment.

    Except in this case it was promised to be.

    I haven't seen anyone post on here with the silky smooth update yet. I'm not sure it has even been released. The only release that could possibly be it is 17.24.28 but there haven't been any posts proclaiming it as "the one" as far as I've seen.

    I've got 17.24.28. 12/16 HW2 S. It's definitely better relatively speaking... now that I've had more time in it I see that highway is much smoother. Local road handing is improved too but still awkward on big turns. I posted my initial feedback in another thread.

    17.24.28 released - improved 'silky' update from 17.22.46?

    I'm still waiting....on 17.17.4 right now - but the preliminary reviews of 17.24.28 don't sound very promising, relative to Elon's claim of "silky smooth".

    I am still amazed at the claims Elon makes regarding any software release, given his reputation as a tough boss and focused on getting what he wants. Does he actually drive an updated Tesla before he tweets his commentary ??? I love my car overall, but I can't believe any A-type personality like Mr. Musk would drive one, activate Autosteer, and not understand that it isn't ready for prime-time yet (and actually scary in some circumstances), and is only going to anger his loyal customer base. I'd be apologizing to all the folks who shelled out $3-$8K for a feature, advertised to be ready in Dec 2016, that currently has no real timeline for 100% reliable functionality in sight
    How can he possibly be satisfied with the current results ?

    I'm frustrated that AP2 doesn't work right yet, but I understand some of the reasons why it might need more time to perfect. But I'm angry that Musk himself has the balls to say it's "silky smooth", implying a great driving experience, when he knows it's no where near up to snuff yet...

    I share that sentiment. He atleast needs to fire the person who told him it's Silky Smooth - and perhaps that's what happened.

    Rockin 17.17.4 here, and still compulsive about checking my phone throughout the day in case I missed the alert indicating the update is ready to be installed.
