My 3 just downloaded 32.12.2 and afterwards rebooted itself. It may have happened in the past, I just don't recall it happening.In the past I would reboot it manually after each update. If it rebooted itself, is there still a need to manually reboot?

Over my almost 6 years of Tesla ownership, and probably over 30 firmware updates, I don’t recall ever manually rebooting my cars after an update. I don’t understand why you would do that.

Not in my opinion.

Pretty sure the reboot is part of the install of every update, historically. I mean, it's a full software update!

Exactly. There’s no such thing as a firmware update without a reboot. People who think they’re doing something productive by rebooting a second time right after would have the same exact results rubbing a lucky rock.

I decided to leave well enough alone and see what, if anything, happens with this latest revision. Hopefully it will fix some of the issues I've had since 32.2.2 was downloaded.

I always do a reboot after an update. This reboot near the end of the update isn't new or news, it's always been a part of the update process. Why I still reboot is that in the absence of console logs to see what's actually happened, all I can assume is that this reboot happened near the end of the update process, not necessarily right at the end. Quite often updates on other devices still have little things that move into place, setting that get finalized, etc after that reboot. Maybe that kind of thing doesn't happen with our tesla's, or maybe it does - we don't know. So I do another reboot just to play it safe. And for what it's worth, after every update I see people reporting various little problems, that are fixed by rebooting - I don't have those little problems though. 32 updates in the last 16 months!

Yes, the software update always includes a reboot.

And I used to always reboot after an update, because my phone key would often be dicey after an update until I rebooted... however, that hasn't been a problem any more in 2019.
