Hey,

I'm trying to get 9.0 on my S8, as I didn't get this OTA. I'm using a SM-G950FD (Exynos), so gonna follow tutorials related to this. SmartSwitch isn't working either, so I'm going off of YouTube Videos and Forums. Please let me know how you got this, or how to get this. Thanks!😀

N.B. My build number (Oreo version) ends in CRH1, not CRL3 as suggested by the 2nd tutorial to have, before updating to Pie. Yet the 1st tutorial had SM-G950FD and build no. CRLB, and it worked fine for him! I'm not sure, whether I should flash my firmware to CRL3 and then, download the update.zip file in recovery mode, or just go straight into downloading the update.zip file?

P.S. Are there any common downsides anyone have experienced when upgrading to 9.0 on S8 SM-G950FD? I hope it is all flawless :D.

The one downside I hate and this was a problem with oreo, is that when taking a screenshot, the edge panel always gets included! Is there a way to make sure the panel doesn't show up, when taking a screenshot?
