    I received an alert on the Tesla App indicating that a software update is available. Anyone know what it is?

    If I didn't have a super important meeting tomorrow morning, I would download it and see what it is, but I don't want to take any chances that it will affect my ability to get where I need to go tomorrow morning (like requiring me to learn new features)

    I heard AP 8.0 might be coming out Wednesday; this wouldn't be it, would it?

    It was minor. Took about 15 minutes to install. Still on 7.1 at the end.

    By the way, if you want to skip the update 2 minute countdown, press some place for about 5 seconds on the message window other than the cancel button or the countdown numbers themselves. This will skip the remaining countdown and advance to the update start.

    I just now got a software notification while at work (Fremont Factory) and it says 1 hour 40 minutes to complete. Just started it. Will update if 8.0 or not.

    Already got the notification that the update was complete so I have a feeling its not 8.0 just yet. Not sure why it said it would take 1 hour 40 minutes in the first place. Realistically it only took about 20 or so like the previous poster.

    I don't remember that screen ever saying anything other than 1:40.

    From what I am hearing it is 2.36.31, perhaps the last 7.1

    There are multiple threads on this: what you are getting right now is a fractional 7.1 update, not 8.0.

    It looks like they are really cranking out 2.36.31.

    BTW, the new episode of Ride the Lightning includes lots of info from Elon Musk about what 8 will be able to do.

    Also an indication that 8 could go into wide release as early as this Wednesday. Just in case that's true I'm going to make sure my S is hooked to wifi all day. :)

    All software updates on autopilot cars say 1:40, all updates on pre-autopilot cars say 45 minutes.

    Always been that way.

    The article says "Tesla patched up the exploit when they rolled out their Firmware 7.1 update earlier this year." So if it was fixed earlier this year then I'm wondering if the hacking situation is not what prompted the update that's been going out the past couple of days.

    BGR mixed up this security flaw with the first one that required physical access. That was patched a while ago. Electrek.co generally has more accurate articles (First Tesla Model S remotely controlled by hackers, Tesla already pushed a fix). BGR is pretty hit or miss.

    This new hack was patched with 2.36.31 being quickly rolled out since Sunday.

    From Tesla:

    “Within just 10 days of receiving this report, Tesla has already deployed an over-the-air software update (v7.1, 2.36.31) that addresses the potential security issues."

    I was just notified of an update. Not sure if its 8.0. I literally just got it right now.
