Re: Android Pie for S8?

Based on https://communityforums.rogers.com/t5/OS-Upgrades/OS-Upgrade-Schedule/td-p/354931 see section OS Upgrade Process

 

Lol - 4 weeks to 6 months! - Think of it they want to sell you the s10 or S9 and say its on new UI / Pie ... sure there is no rush for S8 to get the update. My guess is if they give you a date it will be mid summer.  Hope I am wrong but chances are I am not.

Re: Android Pie for S8?

Yet last week Rogers was clueless??
Samsung & Telus already posted about the April 1st /2nd One UI updates... How is it that Rogers is so unable to publish this when others have already?
I posted this already... 🐧

Re: Android Pie for S8?

QUESTION - HAS ANYONE SUCCESSFULLY UPGRADED TO PIE WITH THE OTA APRIL 01 LOAD? 

It is now 2019-04-02 the second day since my Rogers S8+ has informed me of an available software update to PIE. Version: G955WVLU5CSC1 /G955WOYA5CSC1 / G955WVLU5CSC1 Size: 1553.52 MB Security patch level: March 1,2019. 

 

The problem: Starts to load and gets to about 13.07 MB then stalls! Displays the following popup! "A network or server error occurred. Try again later". 

Before you ask I have 26.9 GB available space on the device (more than adequate for 1.56GB update).

 

I contacted Samsung Support directly: This is what I was told by the tech support agent: "I have checked all my resources on Baseband version G955WVLS5BSA1 from my end. Currently, pie update is not available for Canadian model phone s8+( G955WVLS5BSA1). In order to install high-end version updates to any device, the device's hardware should be compatible with the updated software and should have a capable mechanism for executing the updated software only then it gives the option to update the table. Because your phone s8+ is one of the latest model phones, as per the model baseband version, there is no update for it correctly. You should be getting it in the near future as it is still an ongoing process."

 

ROGERS was this just an elaborate April fools joke?

 

Please let me know if anyone has successfully downloaded and upgraded their S8+ (Baseband version G955WVLS5BSA1)?

Re: Android Pie for S8?

I updated my S8 yesterday (not S8+), everything went through without any problem, now I'm on Pie officially on my S8, the only thing I really whish is to have Rogers to stop hiding "Mobile Data" & "Hotspot" toggle menu icons without me to manually put them back after each update, I use those two functions often and it's annoying without toggle icons that I have to go into "settings, connection, data usage" to enable/disable.

Re: Android Pie for S8?

Agreed. It's annoying having to manually add it after every update.
