Good news: if you’re rocking a Samsung Galaxy S7, you can now download the Android Oreo update if you have an AT&T model
Got an AT&T model Samsung Galaxy S7? Good news: you can now install Android Oreo on it – though you will have to do it manually. And it will ONLY work on AT&T models.
Samsung recently pulled its Android Oreo update for the Galaxy S8, following some issues with random reboots and the like. The company is now working on a fix and, once it has this sorted, the rollout will begin again in earnest.
However, if you’re a Galaxy S7 user and you don’t want to wait, XDA Developers has a handy guide on installing Android 8 Oreo on the Galaxy S7 (AT&T) which you can check out in full here.
Is it safe? Apparently so –
“This update was pulled from the AT&T servers and perfectly safe. This update is not a beta,” notes XDA, “but rather a pre-release build so it might be unstable. Currently, the only way to install this is if you have a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge on the latest update. There are no Odin builds currently available to flash, unfortunately, so this is the only way. If you feel that this is unstable and you want to uninstall it, you can use this file in Odin for the S7 edge and this for the S7.”
Obviously, this isn’t 100% final software, so, as always, you download and install it at your own risk. XDA is a trusted source, though, so I’d happily take their word for this if I had a Galaxy S7 I wanted to install Android Oreo on.
Fortunately for me, I have a Pixel 2 XL, so I get updates as soon as they’re released by Google. If you don’t want to mess around with things like this in the future, and you want to use an Android phone, I’d strongly suggest you join me. The Pixel 2 XL is immense.
