https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=708ead144572 is current aurora pushed to try as though it were on beta. Note the rc2 failures, https://tbpl.mozilla.org/php/getParsedLog.php?id=26415724&tree=Try, where testSettingsMenuItems is trying to find the "Automatic updates" section which doesn't exist because on beta and below the custom updater is shut off.
Created attachment 793185 [details] [diff] [review] Patch: Remove testing for "Automatic updates" on release builds Try build (with patch from bug 903535, which needs something similar): https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=b0d95219d095 I just added some build flag checks to the test, not sure if this is the right way to do branch-specific testing.
Philor, what's the case where the Automatic updates setting is hidden? Your try pushes show "late beta" but I'd like to confirm that this is for all beta and release.
It changes when the branding changes (EARLY_BETA_OR_EARLIER was just the tipmost thing in that try push, https://hg.mozilla.org/try/rev/c8d5855a9572 was the part that changed branding), both http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-aurora/source/mobile/android/branding/beta/configure.sh and http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-aurora/source/mobile/android/branding/official/configure.sh unset MOZ_UPDATER.

Green try build when Automatic updates are not built: https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=8e1023fe869f
low risk uplift when ready with risk evaluation and user impact should be good enough.Need not track it.
Created attachment 796307 [details] [diff] [review] Aurora patch: remove testing for auto updates Unless we want to uplift the test changes  from bug 900564, using #ifdefs seems like the most straightforward way to do conditional testing.  https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/7b5fe881c650
