S9 pie upgrade - Hate the new look

Voyager

So my S9+ had a problem,so I sent it away to get fixed. In the mean time I have dug out my old S7E to use and I prefer the way it works over the one UI and pie. I forgot how smooth it is. I do wonder why I upgraded sometimes.

I wonder the same thing every day. 

 

I miss Oreo on my S9

I meant phones. If I knew now what I knew then, then I would have stayed with my S7E. Works perfectly. I just want my S9 with Oreo software but also want the latest security patches. Catch 22

Me too. It works perfectly. But want the latest features and patches. Can't have them both I guess.

You can run any security software like you do on a pc anyway. Oreo is fantastic imo, I reinstalled it after trying pie. I didn't have any real issues with pie but just prefer oreo and it's my phone. Used the official firm ware and Odin.

I get the security software side of things but then there's the vulnerabilities and since the S9 Oreo is old now there's probably many. You can't win in this game.

Where did you get a copy of the previous OS?  Did it also fix the ugly interface to go back one version?

A lot of people just use sammobile but I just googled samsung s9 pie to oreo and found another site explaining the process with links to the software. I'll need to fire up the pc to see where it was. 

 

It puts the phone back to the way it was when new, they came with oreo installed. You choose the software based on your phone model, region, network provider etc so my phone is as I bought it.

I don't know where you live and when you did this, but you were lucky. Samsung upped the bootloader version in most countries' Pie version to a version higher than the last Oreo that come out, so it is not possible to roll back anymore.
