While I can't comment completely, I think I can safely say this since we've talked about it in other threads in the past:

As with almost all firmware rollouts, we generally target specific model numbers over the course of a month or two, specifically on different weeks for each platform, and randomly choose (not sure how this random process works) a certain number of units to update (usually 10k-20k for the first round) per model number.  The specific model numbers that are updated will be spread out over the course (in the case of 8.0) this month and next.

I'm not at liberty to release the rollout schedule, unfortunately.  I do know, as has been posted on the forums previously, we generally enable "Manual Updates" (Settings > System > Check for Update) at a certain point in most cases.  I don't know if we're going to do that this time, but I expect we will.

At an estimated 15 million Roku devices and at 20000 units per day, that would require 750 days to complete the update.  Granted, not all Roku devices are eligible for an update to 8.0, but even cutting the number by 4 still requires 6 months for all eligible updates to complete.

I've had my Premiere+ for a month and already was able to complete 2 updates.  I know it's only been a week since the 8.0 announcement, but you know, we're all kids waiting.

One thing for sure, until now, every time I'v tried to force an update, I get "you're up to date".
