The up-dates are rolled out based on the firmware of your Jeep, and some unknown, pseudo-randomness. Jeep learned big time with the (then new) OTA features of the Cherokee's 8.4. Namely, they overloaded the network, only supplied updates for USA Jeeps, etc. So now the updates are pushed out with what seems to be a 2-3 week window. You also need cellular service, so if in an underground garage, or with poor cellular service, you won't get prompted until you have service. Note: you don't need to be subscribed to any of the Uconnect cellular features.
Thanks for the reply.

Has anyone with a MY2021 received any OTA update recently (or ever)?

My 8.4 radio prompted me today to do another OTA update. I clicked on update now and about 35 min. later update finished.

I still have ORP.. have noticed nothing new so far. Anyway update completed aok... was driving while it updated.
I had to force a full reboot with my Tazer after this update. While it updated with no error, immediately afterward Sirius channels would not switch and had no volume. AM/FM were working. I decided to try driving for a few mins to see if it corrected itself, and I kept getting random “ding!” alerts on my EVIC that said something like “Shift to 1st not possible.” Note that I have a manual.

I pulled over and did a forced reboot via my Tazer, and now it’s all working as before.

I hope this update resolves some of the stability bugs (backup lines disappearing and random freezes/reboots). 🤞

No details, the after install message says "stability updates", and says to press the assist button for more details. Pressing that eventually gets me a message to subscribe to the Guardian services.
