You Can Run Android 8.0 Oreo on Your Galaxy Note 8

12 December, 2017 Samsung Updates

Before you get all excited, let us tell you that it's not an official update that we are talking about and not even an official beta version. The version of Android 8.0 Oreo which we are discussing here is unfortunately, unfinished and will almost certainly make your experience a very buggy one, should you choose to flash it.

The ROM in question was leaked on Reddit by someone with the username mweinbach and it's an expectedly hefty download of 1.4GB. Post the download, you should be able to use the phone, albeit with a lot of limitations. In spite of all its bugs, one cannot deny that it is most certainly a chance to test Oreo before everyone else for Galaxy Note 8 owners.

Before you decide to proceed with the download, take note of the following points, alongside the many bugs.

·         Your device will fail the SafetyNet check

·         Android Pay, Samsung Pay etc. won't work

·         Play Store will constantly show your device as unverified

·         There is no Project Treble to be found here

Check out the video above to get an idea of what to expect from this one.
