I need to downgrade my S7 to Nougat

SOLVED

Hello,

I've been having problems with slow-motion since upgrading to Android Oreo(8.0) - it's basically a stutter in between frames: https://photos.app.goo.gl/d2dBwbQevEd4aqNPA

You can see as my dog grabs the meat, it skips a couple of frames there and again afterwards.. This phone has served me for a long time, but if I can't have slow-motion I'll be getting a new one.

I googled a little and I saw that some people have this problem even on the S8 and S9..

A person doing this does so at their own sole responsibility knowing that a phone can be put Into an unusable state and possible manufacturing warranty being voided.

Officially from Samsung you can't rollback a firmware. 

 

Sometimes a factory reset can help (back up beforehand)

 

I can't advise here how to roll back firmware.

 

Please use Google Search and or look on the xdadevelopers site to learn how.

I know how to do it that way, but I've bricked a phone doing that and I feel it's not worth the risk right now for me.. I'd rather change phones. So Samsung doesn't allow it, thank you.

EDIT: Factory reset didn't work, it brought me back to 8.0 and I still have the problem.

Am not sure if a downgrade is a good idea because i have used my S7 to watch on VIP League many sports niche matches from various top leagues like Bundesliga, E,pl and others.
