    Samsung started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ last week. The over-the-air update was first released for those who had taken part in the beta program. We reported this morning that the update is now rolling out to non-beta Galaxy S8 owners in several markets.

    Many of our readers have been asking us when the Galaxy S8 Oreo firmware will be available for download from our firmware section. We're now happy to report that the first Galaxy S8+ Oreo firmware can now be downloaded from SamMobile's firmware database.

    Those who are waiting on the OTA release in markets that haven't received it as yet may have to wait until next month because Samsung has confirmed to us that it's going to start rolling out Oreo for the Galaxy S8 in the Netherlands next week. That's also when we expect other markets like the UK to get the update.

    We now have the first Galaxy S8+ Oreo firmware for the SM-G955F available for download. It's firmware version G955FXXU1CRAP which is the same firmware version that Samsung has been rolling out over-the-air to users in a handful of markets.

    Galaxy S8+ owners can head over to our firmware section right now and check out the available Oreo firmware files for this handset. It's only a matter of time before the Oreo firmware files become available for the Galaxy S8 as well in our database. Check back soon!

    Update: As promised, the first official Oreo firmware files for the Galaxy S8 model number SM-G950F are also available for download from our firmware section.

    Update 2: There seems to be an issue with the firmware which prevents it from being flashed on the devices. We have decided to pull the firmware files until these issues are sorted out by Samsung. We will update you when the files are available once again.

    Statement SamMobile: Dear SamMobile user, We are aware that there are problems flashing Android 8.0 Oreo on your Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices using ODIN. All firmwares on SamMobile are the original, unmodified firmwares by Samsung. Here at SamMobile we are eagerly awaiting a clean solution from Samsung and/or our own sources on how to resolve this matter without manually modifying firmware files. In case you are looking for another, unsupported solution, please use the ones that are currently being posted all around the internet. For now, our advice would be; don't risk anything — just wait and be patient like us. 🙂 We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by this matter and will update you as soon as we can!
