    I just read that too and took it as another minor fox vs 8.1, which would really suck because most people would think its the long awaited 8.1 only to be disappointed by a big fix that probably didn't affect them.

    I would think when 8.1 comes out, it would be announced clearly by Musk...or is that my his style/way it normally happens? (Haven't been following him long enough to know)

    Maybe he's deliriously tired, and this was a spacex update.

    Does this mean they are actually testing the cars in real winter weather conditions now? :D

    Based on his tweets it looks like 8.1 has now been pushed to late Jan, including the Linux kernel update. So another >1 month delay.

    Am I surprised? No.

    Another month of broken equalizer. Sweet.

    I would bet a lot of money that Tesla will release (to at least some people) a version that fixes the equalizer issue far sooner than a month from now.

    The late Jan tweet was in reference to 8.1 for AP1 cars.

    On Dec. 22 Elon said 8.1 was coming this week. It's weird that he only pointed out that 8.1 was coming in late Jan when prompted... everyone was under the assumption this WAS the 8.1 update and it included AP for HW2.

    Wonder why they announced it like this.

    My understanding is 8.1 is coming this week for AP2 cars only. The rest have to wait until end of January.

    I don't think that's the case. Everyone is on the same software version, the update that's coming in the next few days is an incremental 8.0.x update for HW2 to bring our cars to feature parity.

    That isn't what Elon has said. Yesterday in response to the question "Hey @elonmusk, how does it look for 8.1 this weekend?" he responded "@andrewket Almost there. Undergoing final validation. Might go out in next few days."

    AP revenue isn't recognized until its functioning, so in this case AP2 firmware needs to go out before the ball drops, roughly $100m is on the line (20k cars x $5000).

    You're correct, he did say that. But he also revised that today and said that now 8.1 would be end of Jan (update with new Kernel, etc.).

    Again, Elon was answering a direct question someone asked regarding 8.1 for HW1 cars.

    It is clear to me: as some have said, a build of 8.1 for HW2 cars only, is being hurried, hopefully tomorrow. AP1 casr will get another build of 8.1. Remember, we now have at least nineteen released builds of 8.0 out there!
