Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

[ Edited ]

I updated to an unbranded version of Oreo (XEU) firmware on my s8+, realised it caused some bugs with bluetooth & calls/wifi calls. So now back on NRD90M.G955FXXU1AQK7 (O2U) patiently waiting for o2 to sign off their update. I guess I was lucky, as I have read some users are getting locked onto bootloader after update, meaning they can't downgrade like I did.

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

Yes, I've seen reports of bootloader issues and that Samsung have pulled the update for now. Perhaps the official name (FXXU1CRAP) was a sign...

 

Seems I was too hasty to moan to @Chris_K so apologies.

 

Think I was spoiled being a longtime Nexus user all the way to the 6P. Still, am still liking the S8 so not really any regrets.

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

Is there a way to still get the security updates for Nougat through the software update feature in the phone, without upgrading to Orea once it comes out? Or is it a case of once its available, you have to upgrade to it

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

There won't be any Nougat updates once your version of Oreo is released.

Sorry didnt mean the OS updates, meant the monthly or so security updates that get released

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo update

Ah yes, whilst there is still Nougat firmware on some phones (of the same model) you will still be able to get them.

Samsung S8 Oreo Update

Hi all,

 

Samsung has started rolling out the Oreo update again after the problems last week.

 

I know its not gone live in the UK yet but wondered if from your experiences how long does it take O2 to push it out?

 

This is my first android phone and im amazed at how behind the updates are getting to Samsung devices

 

Thanks all

Re: Samsung S8 Oreo Update

We know that O2 are testing it already and 2-3 weeks is usually the norm before they get pushed to customers, assuming no issues are found.
There are already 2 or 3 threads running asking the same question and we have tagged @Chris_K for updates, as he is the man in the know on these things......
