Hi all,

With nougat I had almost 6 hours non stop multitasking with 2 screens with YouTube and Chrome and others apps. Now it last less the 2 hours and it's frustrating, plus it gets hot. There's no information from Samsung how to fix.

I upgraded my S8 not from the Beta programme but from the normal upgrading service. I'm trying to find a easy way to rollback to Nougat I don't find a reliable way. It will affect my warranty? If I need a computer I have a Mac.

Thanks.

Hi
Did you make a factory reset ?

If yes, back to Nougat by flashing Nougat firmware on ODIN.

Your knox protection will be not passed, it will stay at 0x0, don't be afraid, ODIN and Samsung firmware are official and don't affect warranty.

Hi

No, I haven't done a factory reset. Is there any easy guide to do it?

If I go to do it through Odin, could you recommend me a guide?

Thanks.

Factory reset is a must after major update otherwise you will have issues. I have done reset straight away and very happy with battery life . Pretty much same level like on nougat or even slightly better.

    Even if I had the update 2 days ago? Will that work?
