8 Things to Know About the Google Pixel Android 8.0 Oreo Update



Downgrade back to Android Nougat

Downgrade back to Android Nougat

You can downgrade back to Android 7.1.2 Nougat if you need to. If problems can't be resolved don't worry about getting stuck on Oreo. 

While this isn't ideal, Google makes it extremely easy to roll back to the previous stable release. The only problem here is you'll have to manually install an older update file. 

You can try hitting "Unenroll" on the beta page, but we don't expect that to work much longer. If so, follow our manual installation guide but flash Nougat files instead of Android 8.0 Oreo.

    Something simple perhaps, that I don’t seem to be finding any online info about:

    Right after install, we are prompted to “Select Home”, where the selections are “EasyHome”, “Home”, or “Home & app drawer”

    At first, I kept the use-as-default box unchecked to make it easy to try the options a bit. (I’m still not clear what “EasyHome” is supposed to be…. except simpler.)

    HERE’s the big takeaway, for me: if you select “Home & app drawer”,
    then you GET BACK the icon setup, from your desktop BEFORE the update to 8.0.
