We detailed a leaked Oreo build for the Galaxy S8 as well as made a short tutorial on how to install the item on your device. today, there’s a newer Oreo build available for the Galaxy Note 8 as well. Both of these builds appear to be closer to the official Discharge candidate than the official beta updates on the Galaxy S8.
The latest Note 8 firmware comes courtesy of prolific Samsung leaker mweinbach on Reddit. The Note 8 leaked firmware carries build number CRA2 as well as can be only for the Snapdragon variant of the device. You can check if your Note 8 can be eligible by heading to Settings –> About Phone as well as looking for the type number. Eligible Note 8 devices are type numbers SM-N950U as well as SM-N950U1, the US carrier as well as unlocked designs.
the item can be worth noting that will your phone must be running build BQL5 before sideloading the CRA2 firmware. If you’re interested in performing This specific yourself, the steps are identical to those we detailed for updating the Galaxy S8 to Oreo. Unfortunately, there are some major drawbacks to be aware of with This specific fresh build. Mostly importantly, if you flash CRA2, you cannot use Odin to return to Nougat or any earlier Oreo builds. The reason just for This specific can be that will the bootloader can be advanced with the CRA2 build. Several users are also reporting that will This specific build can be still in “Uncertified” status on the Google Play Store.
