The current situation is they are all still grounded, except that we saw the MAX-7 do what Boeing called an engineering flight requested by FAA yesterday, and Boeing's CEO reiterated handing off a fix to FAA in September and return to flight early Q4. So, not much has changed recently.
It is not being submitted to the FAA till then. So that is when testing of a major, and highly sensitive, change starts with the FAA. That is not going to take a few weeks.
