The name of the new Android operating system version is to be called Android Oreo, version 8.0.We have been waiting for months for this new version, however, we have been able to test the trial versions before, but it is already here, the new update has arrived. Google arrives with it to further improve the operating system and continue to make history with it, do you want to know how to upgrade to Android Oreo?
Well, it is a question that surely many of you are doing at the moment, however, the answer is not very different from that of previous years. And is that Google devices are the lucky ones, who will enjoy the new version of the operating system before anyone else.
You have to wait for some time to be able to get the images from the factory since today only the source code is released in the AOSP. Anyway, let’s see how you can upgrade to Android Oreo and what requirements you must meet.
Do you have a Google device? Whether it’s a Pixel, or a Nexus, the issue is that if we have any of these we can install Android Oreo instantly, when it is available, of course. However, you must meet a number of requirements, otherwise you will have something complicated partner.
First of all is to have the Android SDK installed on our computer, also the drivers of our smartphone, unlocked bootloader and USB debugging enabled. Do not know how to activate this last option?
Very simple, simply access the settings of the mobile, enter the ‘About the phone’ option and repeatedly press the ‘Number of compilation’. This way, when you go back we will have the development options activated, access, and activate USB debugging.
In order to upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo we need the most important, the factory image. Where do I get it? On the website of the Google developers, and if we see that we have made a mess, we also have the other versions to go back. To have the downloaded image, you have to unzip it where you want. After this,you will have to insert in the folder the Fasboot files that are in a folder called platform-tools, of the Android SDK.
The next thing is to turn off the smartphone, and once this action is done, access the bootloader. How do I do it? Holding down the ‘Volume -‘ keys and the power button at the same time, after that, we connect the mobile to the computer. Then run the file called ‘flash-all.bat’ in case of using Windows, or ‘flash-all.sh’ in the case of Linux, after doing all this, we will have installed Android 8.0 Oreo.
