Hey guys, just a friendly reminder that modifying your devices does void the warranty on them and prevent you from getting any official updates that may be released later. I completely understand your enthusiasm for Oreo. Trust me, I'm anxiously waiting for the update too.

I just sideloaded it from SD card.  It was much easier.

@Jamess467 I cant find the file to download anywhere. They've all been removed from whay I saw. Where did you find yours? Also, did you receive a factory reset afterwards, or were you able to keep your data?

Also, generally speaking, all OTA updates can be sideloaded as well. Smiley Happy

I googled getting oreo early.  It was a blurb from reddit with the abd command line you downloaded as a zip.  Than you put the zip into your sd card.

@Jamess467 I see the reddit thread I think you're talking about, but it was removed/deleted.

I noticed that myself.  I got it before it got deleted.
