But we used a VPN, which allowed us to get the OxygenOS 9.0 Android Pie update immediately. As you can see from the icon in the first screenshot, we used Cyberghost VPN for this. You can do the same, or use any other VPN of your choice. Just make sure to connect to a server in Canada to get the update right away.

You can disconnect the VPN once you get the update screen, and download the OTA using your regular internet connection.
