[Update: Statement SamMobile] First Galaxy S8 Oreo firmware now available for download

Home / News / [Update: Statement SamMobile] First Galaxy S8 Oreo firmware now available for download

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.

Galaxy S8 Oreo firmware

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!


Exclusive We can now confirm that Samsung has stopped the Galaxy S8 Android 8.0 release. Read our full exclusive story for more details.

Hello guys, i extracted the Oreo firmware found that the new Oreo firmware files have the extension .lz4. The old ODIN is not able to read this extension hence it is failing to flash it. I renamed and modified the extension and it is flashing normally. This is a bit risky though. We have to wait till a new version of ODIN comes out 🙂

Firmware is available again, but still fails to flash with Odin,

There is nothing wrong with the file you downloaded. There is a very good step-by-step guide on XDA on how to flash it successfully. I followed it to the letter, half-expected it to work because a lot of people reported failed attempts, but was pleasantly surprised that it flashed successfully. Best of luck with yours.

tampoco me funciono.
queria intentar el metodo de XDA que es basicamente hacer el sideload del update.zip (disponible en el articulo del XDA) pero como estoy con la version de Vodafone, dudo que funcione.
Esperare un poco más a ver si sale otra imagen que puedo aplicar por ODIN.
