    Update is probably a staged rollout so YMMV if you have it right away.


    Also included is a feature from Paranoid Android, locked recents! And multitouch is also fixed.

    This was very prompt update. If they keep up with fixing bugs, then this phone will go along other flagships

    you need to describe the iusse.....i am on Three and it does take ages - try and close all your apps while you do the update and also try not to use it as well.

    Hi mate thanks for the reply. Each and every attempt I've made in regards to the ota install simply fails with an "installation problem" appearing on the screen under "Couldn't Update". I've done the update, whilst the phone was charging and also not charging with no apps open and still it fails after the update is seemingly downloaded.

    is the phone modified in any way? root? twrp?

    All i can think of is that there is an app on there it doesnt like? Problem is could be anything...look in particular for "apps which are allowed to draw over other apps"

    I had previously unlocked the bootloader to flash a global version of oreo before I returned to the three variant (my bootloader has been locked again). I'm going to delete a few apps to see if that makes a difference thanks!

    your will have a different one before this one - the big oreo update - then this one is secondary

    there is a possibility, that even though its state has been returned to normal, there is a check the update does which spots the log of what you did and refuses to proceed further.

    Wow really? How would I begin to resolve that other than simply reflashing the new recovery?

    i have no clue - i was not in a rush to go to oreo as the phone was running beautifully anyway so just waited for the official one. Even though razer released the global one they did not fully endorse it and did say that you used it at your own risk...i didnt think it was worth doing it as i was sure i would receive it soon anyway - which i did.

    maybe contact razer and just play dumb and say the update is not working and go through their support.

    Make sure you go to Settings, system and Razer Preferences and Disable the Share Data again... it gets turned on with the update.

    Couldn't be bothered to wait for the OTA as I was still in 'N', Flashed the New Oreo Factory Image and I have to say I like it so far, no problems found.
