*DON'T FLASH BACK TO NOUGAT IF YOU ENJOY USING YOUR PHONE*
Ok guys ive made my return and im happy to bring the oreo ota with me.!

Steps to install if your on a rom.
1. Use this flash all link Here
2. After finished and setup your going to need a pc and sideload knowledge
3. Download these ota files
Latest August https://drive.google.com/file/d/1OhW...ZxreOk6v7/view OREO
4. Get your phone into recovery mode.
4.a the file is gonna have a lot of letters please do not rename or it wont work
4.b before you get into recovery you will see a dead Android. This IS normal. Your going to want to hold power and push volume up. It's a split second kinda thing. Not something you guys forever. Hot that a few times if it doesn't work the first time.
5 your going to want to go to in recovery to apply update via adb for the August one
6. run the command adb sideload (now drag the file to the command prompt and press enter)
7 if all good you will see a verifiying update the step 1/2 when you see that your fine.
8 Let it do its thing and at the end you may see and error about a drive disregard that.
9 now follow steps 4-7 again but with Oreo ota
10 reboot your system and now you should have oreo!


If your stock locked and never been cocked you can try to install the same method above without using the flash all and if it works congrats if not unlock your bootloader and use the method above.

if any help is needed contact me @ [email protected]

HOW TO ROOT
1. DOWNLOAD THIS. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zz3...w?usp=drivesdk
2. FASTBOOT BOOT OR FLASH IT RUNNING "FASTBOOT BOOT /PATH/TO/BOOT.IMG" OR FASTBOOT FLASH /PATH/TO/BOOT.IMG
3. REBOOT AND PROFIT.

TWRP 3.2.1-0 Bootable and Permanent
Bootable Fastboot boot this *ONLY FOR OREO*
*Permanent is broken* Use boot able

Unencryption for oreo
Encryption Remover *FOR OREO ONLY*
*Must format then flash*

OREO FLASH ALL OREO *YOU CAN ONLY FLASH THIS AFTER YOU HAVE TAKEN THE OTA* *IF YOU FLASH THIS AND YOU HAVENT AND YOUR PHONE BLOWS UP PLEASE VIDEO IT SO I CAN POST IT ON HERE AND SHOW WHAT NOT TO DO*

Thank to @XirXes for the ota files

I recommend (from experience) not trying that.
