Don't Manually Install If You're Uncomfortable with the Process
The Galaxy Note 8 Pie update is moving out but it'll be weeks, if not months, before it hits every single Note 8 model.
If you don't want to wait for your Android update you can manually install the software right now if you have the right device, some patience, and some free time.
The official Galaxy Note 8 Pie firmware is out which means select Note 8 users can skip the OTA (Over-the-Air) roll out and manually install the software.
If you're feeling impatient, you might be tempted to go this route. While tempting you should wait for the OTA if you feel uncomfortable with any part of the manual installation process.
Manually installing the software can cause unforeseen issues so if you aren't confident, sit back and wait for the OTA.
