Oreo Update

I have an s8+ and I'm on the Oreo beta. This morning I got the software update G955USQU2CRB9. Did anyone else get this and if so, are you on the beta? The update is only 343.74 MB. I imagine it's so small because I'm already on "Oreo" and that would put me on the official build. Does anyone think that it would be better to downgrade back to nougat via smart switch and then upgrade to oreo to install the full update as intended or just go with this OTA to complete the transition?

Re: Oreo Update

I guess beta testers did get 1 day early. I hear that Sprint non beta testers are already getting it today. Did you install it yesterday?

Re: Oreo Update

It's exactly the same to me, as beta 7 worked perfectly for me. The only difference I see is that I wasn't able to use Google Pay with the beta because it didn't recognize the beta 7 build number and thought I was rooted, but now I can. The only other thing I'm hoping for is better battery life. I guess I'll see. Anything different or better for you thus far?

  1. Open Contacts.
  2. Tap the contact you wish to set a custom ringtone for.
  3. Tap the three-dot menu icon in the top right corner.

  4. Tap Set ringtone.
  5. Select the custom ringtone you added to the ringtones folder.
  6. Tap Save or OK.

Re: Oreo Update

That's not it that's for just the ringtone not for to set for message tone like b4 .. now the new update of oreo software won't show or have that  Option to set our contract a separate message ringtone .  only a ringtone when our contract calls.

Yes the Oreo Update is out it's about 1.5Gb so it will take a little longer to install overall its not bad but I Do Not like it that they took the Clear Badges Away.. 😞
