Official firmware list for 9500Pro

Thu Dec 20, 2018 10:46 am

Hello! Where can we see a list of official firmware for 9500Pro? With possibility to download any of them? The "ROM Download" forum is empty. 
My fresh 9500Pro phone has BV_BV9500Pro_V1.0_20180827 firmware. Checking for the new software update (OTA) from the phone settings menu reports that "software is currently up to date". Is BV_BV9500Pro_V1.0_20180827 really a newest official firmware version? Or maybe the seller (I bought my phone from) installed its "own" firmware (possibly with some malware) and disabled OTA updates? I'm worrying about it. I would like to use only official firmware for security reasons. I would like to install firmware downloaded form official source (as OTA update or using flashtool).
Thank you in advance.

Firmware files will be posted soon.
OTA updates don't reach every user at the same time, so you'll have to wait a search periodically.
A factory reset and being under a WiFi network may help to get OTA updates faster ;)

I have the same version of firmware and it is apparently the only one that exists for the bv9500 pro. I am also looking forward to an update to, I hope, solve my problems. Quickly blackview! Thank you.

tiboponpon, actually, I have found some mysterious firmware for the Pro version on the 4pda Russian forum (I saw links to that forum here on the 'Board index' page, so I hope I don't violate local rules by referring to another resource). This is the largest Russian forum dedicated to mobile devices. I found a firmware named 2018092919_s32v63c2k_jk_pro .rar there and it's uploaded to the Blackview's favorite cloud "Mega". It's reported to be "official". But still, I don't know whether I can trust it or not. It's unclear to me why that link (along with some checksum) isn't posted here (so, I don't post it here as well).

Official firmware files will be posted in the ROM download section. If it isn't there, it isn't official.
