Hi everyone, just wanted to give u any update.  There is an option under accessibility settings to "show button shapes which makes things stand out.  I checked this as had a brain haemorrhage at Xmas and eyesight not great. Turns out this is what was preventing me from downloading themes! Thanks so much for your help and rest assured u can download themes for your s8! Thanks everyone!

It could be that the Themes your trying to download haven't been optimised for Nougat or that model of phone yet. There maybe further information in the themes notes and or other peoples reviews.

Hi, thanks for your reply.  I thought that myself as the phone hasn't been officially released yet, but even themes under the heading "themes for galaxy s8" won't download!

You're welcome. 

 

Which Themes are you trying to download. 

 

I get my s8 on Friday and I'm hoping themes are available. I use material black. 

 

Have you tried closing the theme store down and then reboot your phone by turning it Off and On.

My show button shapes is grayed out so I can't select it to turn it off. Anyone know how to get around this?

I'm having the same issue. Any suggestions?

I gave up waiting for a response on here and wound up factory resetting it. I made sure everything was backed up and unchecked the settings option so it wouldn't  re-apply the show button shapes option. Not sure why that setting was grayed out, maybe one of the newer updates or something. But I'm now good to go to use themes again. Hope this helps you!!
