First Galaxy Note 8 Oreo firmware download available now

Samsung started rolling out the Galaxy Note 8 Oreo firmware over-the-air on March 16, the very same day that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ were released in more than 70 markets across the globe, continuing a trend that’s frustrating a lot of the company’s fans. Those who have been waiting for the over-the-air update to go live in their region can now rejoice as we have the first Galaxy Note 8 Oreo firmware available for download via our database.

First Galaxy Note 8 Oreo firmware download

The Galaxy Note 8 Oreo release started with France last week and we quickly confirmed that the build being rolled out wasn’t a test build for the handset’s U.S. variant that has been making the rounds online for a few weeks now.

There isn’t a lot different in this update compared to the Oreo update that’s already widely available for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. All features that are part and parcel of Oreo are included in this release. You can check out this official infographic to find out all about the new Samsung Experience 9.0 features. Don’t forget to go through our detailed What’s New With Android 8.0 Oreo series for an in-depth look at all of the new features and improvements.

Firmware version N950FXXU3CRC1 is the first public Oreo build that Samsung is rolling out for its flagship phablet. Those who are unable to get it over-the-air will can now download the first Galaxy Note 8 Oreo firmware from our firmware section. This release also includes the latest security maintenance update for the month of March 2018.

Now that the Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update is rolling out, it’s only a matter of time before the update makes its way to all users across the globe. However, those who own carrier-locked variants of the Galaxy Note 8 might have to wait a bit longer as the carriers tend to hold up the roll out as they go through their own processes prior to release.

When will update Oreo Note 8 version SM-N9500

Hello, I have installed Oreo firmware received by OTA for my Note 8 Dual sim (SM-N950F) – Belgium. I have issue with satellite receiver: when I check with the application GPS data+, there is no Galileo satellite available. Before the update, there were commonly 4 to 5 satellites Galileo visible. Other satellites system seem OK (GPS, Glonass, Beidou).
Is there anybody else having the same problem?

Installed Oreo on my XEO Note8 and I have pretty bad experience with it. The most irritating problems I’ve found so far: 1) stuttering “air command wheel” opening animation, when I eject the spen, 2) stuttering sound volume panel animation, when I try to unfold it to show all the sliders, 3) Very slow fingerprint recognition on various applications (bank/paypal, etc.) 4) 1÷2 times a day, when I wake up the phone it requires to enter PIN, even though I have set it to unlock with fingerprint/face. Did a factory reset twice, but it didn,t help. Animation stuttering problem is… Read more »

Bixby just got back alive by itself in the UAE today. It was not working yesterday after the upgrade to Oreo. Surprisingly it kept the level I was at before the upgrade.

HELP! I recieved the OTA for SM-N950F XSG the UAE Oreo Note 8 update earlier this morning, I did a full software reset after updating, everything seemed to work fine until I tried to activate bixby, bixby home works but bixby voice doesn’t, I tried to reset all of bixby services but nothing worked.

chippyuk

If it is still not working I would factory reset the phone again to see if that helps.

WarMaester

I did 2 more resets, one soft and one hard, same issue, even when I activate Bixby she doesn’t say the usual introduction with voice “hi my name is Bixby” I even went into Bixby settings > About and it only shows Bixby home version and not voice, Its like the voice files aren’t there at all

If this is not an issue with the OS which I believe it is the only thing I can think of is to flash the firmware when its available, could be days before that happens though 🙁

chippyuk

Download from here and flash. Just remember to select Home_CSC, see if that helps, otherwise flash without Home_CSC to do a full wipe again….

WarMaester

But only the french version is available, is it okay? mine is the UAE version

PS. I opened a reddit thread regarding the issue to see if others have the bug too.

The one on here is MULTI CSC, just make sure you select HOME_CSC in the list of files. This means that it will not wipe your phone but if that does not help then select the CSC file, this will wipe your phone and give you a clean build. There is nothing wrong with using this version though.

WarMaester

I flashed a whole new firmware (French) and used the CSC file to make sure everything is reset to factory

Still no bixby voice, on the Note8
Went to check on my S9+ and suddenly no Bixby voice there too It most likely is a region issue. (UAE)

Can the ODIN flashing process be achieved on a Mac?

There are a few tutorials out there however I personally would not risk it. Something goes wrong and you may brick your phone. Drop all the files on a flash drive, find someone with a windows machine, copy to the hard drive and run it… Safe rather than sorry! 🙂

I’ve done this before, but a very long time ago. I’ve got a quick question if anyone can help me please. I’ve got an unlocked (EE UK EVR CSC firmware) if I choose “CSC” instead of “Home_CSC” would the phone change to XEF? If that is what happens I’m planning on flashing the BTU firmware to my Note 8 in the future. Would it convert the phone to BTU instead of EE (EVR)? My plan is to remove the EE bloatware.

Abishek5556

No. It wont change to XEF. CSC will change according to your carrier.

If the bootloader is V3 you may be stuck with EE firmware. Samsung kindly applied a patch in Jan to stop carrier to unlocked firmware. Im on O2 and previously flashed BTU without issue then i went back to O2U so i could enable wifi calling. Since the january patch i can no longer do it. Tried again last night but just fails every time. Wasnt prepared to risk bricking my Note8 so looks like im stuck with O2U now, I dare say the same applies to EE. Be very careful, id hate for you to brick your phone
