WARNIG: Samsung has pulled CRAP build from their servers and stopped the OTA, proceed at your own risk.

Update from Samsung:
"Following a limited number of cases where Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices have rebooted unexpectedly with the Android 8.0 Oreo, we have temporarily stopped the rollout of the update. We are investigating the issue internally to ensure that the impact to the affected devices is minimized and the rollout of the update can resume as quickly as possible."


Holy "CRAP", Oreo was finally released to the S8, lets talk about the good, the bad and the ugly...


Exynos G950F (also G950FD)

How to install update.zip:
1. You must be on ZRA5, stock, no root. If you are on AQL5, you can flash this to update to ZRA5: https://mega.nz/#!3M9hATZB!9uzxvZvFJ...cbllrVfEwR9WuQ
2. Copy the update.zip to microSD
3. Reboot to recovery
4. Install update.zip from SD card
5. Enjoy!


Guide to flash update.zip:

(I have no idea who created it but all credits to him/her).

- Put in on your SD card (it's needed here) - Reboot the phone to recovery mode - switch the phone off, press Vol+ + Bixby + Power, release power when you see the splash screen but keep holding the rest. Blue screen will appear, when you see an Android on it's side and a warning sign hold Vol- button for a few seconds, you will see recovery screen with a few options.

- Using volume buttons select "Apply update from SD Card" and press Power to select option

- Select update.zip you placed on the card and press Power

- Wait until the phone completes the update. It will reboot automatically.

** Alternatively, if you don't have a free SD card you can use ADB sideload.

- Get Android platform tools: https://developer.android.com/studio...orm-tools.html and Google USB driver: https://developer.android.com/studio/run/win-usb.html

- Copy update.zip to the folder where you extracted platform tools (again, shortest path possible recommended)

- Reboot phone to recovery as described above, select the option "Apply update from ADB", connect the phone to PC, open command prompt that has the directory with the update.zip and adb selected

- run "adb devices" command (without quotes) and check that the phone shows up there

- run "adb sideload update.zip" command. Update will be uploaded to the phone and applied

- Wait until the phone completes the update. It will reboot automatically.

There won't be many differences from the beta to the final, a few extra things here and there and better stability. I'm on beta 6 UK, waiting for it drop here.
