Re: Android Pie for S8?

Upgraded to Android Pie on Monday. Just noticed that there is no more the "PHRASE BLOCKING" under Samsung Messages. I was using this feature to move the voicemail messages that tells that there is a new voicemail The text in french is "1 nouveau(x) 0 Urgent(s)" ( 1 New 0 Urgent(s) ) that comes from the phone number of the person that left a voicemail. This is the means that Rogers uses to trigger the voicemail notification icon on top of the phone.

 

BTW: Android Messages does not provide any way to BLOCK PHRASES, only phone numbers. Looks like the providers are blocking this option. This option was available since my Galaxy S captivate... VERY ANNOYING!

From what I read it looks like it's Rogers through the CSC (others.xml file) that some of the options are not available like hotsport from drop down menu.

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

 

On April 6th I successfully downloaded and upgraded the Samsung S8+ (Baseband version G955WVLS5BSA1) without any issue.

Re: Android Pie for S8?

It's got nothing to do with the OTA & everything to do with the Canadian Carriers removing the Mobile Data & Hot Spot Toggles! You can add them back with adb commands - You need to Download & install Platform-Tools to your computer & Samsung USB Drivers - You need to Enable USB Debugging on your phone (Settings - Software Information - Click on the Build number 7 times) Connect your phone to the computer - Open Windows Power Shell and Type this exactly on your computer in Windows Power Shell:


.\adb shell (press Enter)
settings put secure sysui_qs_tiles "$(settings get secure sysui_qs_tiles),MobileData,Hotspot"


Done

@shaggyskunk no need for root? Isaw that procedure for Hotspot and I will probably do it. Also is it possible to enable hidden feature like phrase block if available the same way? These commands modifies the (others.xml) file right?

No you don't need Root (Unavailable on Snapdragon devices anyway) 🐧

No root required when using adb shell, but down side is you will have to do it every time after update.  There is a way to do it permanently, but it requires root which I do not want to risk my device with.  Just wish they stop hiding the toggle menu icons.

Re: Android Pie for S8?

Ever since I upgraded to Pie on my S8, I am having problems with delay notification as well as receiving WhatsApp messages up to like 20 mins!! Also my sportify keep stopping. Also battery drains faster even I turned off most the background jobs. Any fixes?

Re: Android Pie for S8?

Whenever there's an Android Version update - I always Backup my device and then Factory Reset - I've never had any issues by following this routine... Yes it can be a little time consuming - But Samsung is only going to provide two Android Version Updates for the life of your device - So it's worth it in my opinion 🐧
