For how long I wonder...

*I set it to install overnight, but shows as postponed yet again in the morning. What's the point?

My battery life has definitely improved. No Cell Standby drain.

I've completely wiped my phone and Odin flashed the official firmware. Safest bet to ensure that there are no problems from previous install.
Mate, please let me know the steps you made.
I've flashed the most recent oreo firmware a week ago and everyday I get cell standby drain around 30%. I tried so many adjustments, nothing works, I'm frustrated!
P.s. are u mostly on wifi or mobile internet?

Huuuge cell standby drain!
This is ridiculous: nearly HALF a battery dumped with just 3hours 20 minutes SOT!

I received an OTA a few days ago. About 300mb in size saying it was an Oreo upgrade even though I already have it. After running this update, "Android system" takes up a lot of my battery. Has anyone else experienced this?

The XAC update was availabe for the S7 and Edge but have both been pulled along with the Rogers update. It would appear that the unlocked update is only released with the final carrier. I'd feel confident in saying that even though you have the unlocked one, you're going to be screwed for that update as long as Rogers customers as Rogers is usually dead last. Look at what they've done with the S6...

Question.... I have an S7, locked to Bell and rooted. I want to unroot and pass on to a friend who is with Rogers (after unlocking); so which stock firmware do I use? XAC, BMC or another?

Thanks

    A user on reddit found a way to change CSC for people with XAC without rooting. Just put in *#243203855# on the phone menu and it gives you the option to change to other carriers.

    Hey boys, is there a way to root our S7 edges without tripping knox? Or alternatively is there a way of unrooting if I ever needed to send the phone in to get fixed?

    You guys gimp the security, speed, and reliability of your phone and encourage others to do the same; it's sickening. His question didn't even have anything to do with rooting.

    I've rooted phones for years but it doesn't feel nearly as necessary as it used to. Not to mention all of the problems that result from it: no Samsung pay, unencrypted internal storage, no Knox, slower boot time, random reboots, increased memory usage, and incompatible or poorly tested xposed modules can cause a myriad of bugs.

    The level of dillusion is insane in this community.

    No issues here. Samsung Pay is not even available in Canada yet, and I'm happy using my credit cards regardless.
    Boot time has not increased at all, memory usage is the same, don't care too much for knox.
    Please also note that Xposed isn't the only thing that can be done after rooting. Having the ability to remove system apps, and having access to root functions and folders is never a bad thing.

    Also, no one is forcing you to do it, so chill out.
    I'm sure when someone decides to root, they will end up doing some research on it, and they can decide for themselves if they want to do it or not... no one is holding a gun to their head lol.

    I'm happy with ClearPlex film protector from BestBuy stores. $29.99 + tax lifetime warranty. Anytime it peels off or it gets damaged you go back to the store with the receipt and they put a new one on. It does not cover from edge to edge. There is a 1-2 mm gap between the film and the edge end the ear piece and home button are only enclosed on three sides. The tech said that if the film would go more towards the curved sides it would peel off so they are aware about the limitations of edge screen and their product. After 1 month absolutely no problem. Install was great with no bubbles and no lint underneath. They have a machine that does it. It seems to be wet application and the screen is self healing. They have two flavors. On our device they apply the ULTRA one which it's been said to be HD. If feels just a little bit rubbery but way less than others. The touch sensitivity is great though.
    Give it a try.


    What are you guys using for screen protector, I know decent tempered glass is not possible and probably will not be for a long time but looking for a decent film. Don't care about the orange peal effect, I care more about the ease of bubble free installation
