S8+ Software Update Notification Keeps On Appearing

Problem: Hi, I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. The problem I have is it is telling me to install a software update which I did and it said that the update had been installed but then a notification came up again saying that I needed to install a software update so I did and again it said the update had been installed but then the notification came up again. All in all I’ve done 4 software updates now and the notification still won’t go away

Solution: If the software update has been successfully installed but then you are still getting the notification then this is most likely caused by a software glitch. You should first try to wipe the cache partition of the phone from the recovery mode then check if the issue still occurs. If it does then you will have to do a factory reset. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing the reset.

S8+ No Service Error

Problem: Whenever I have a software update and leave it for a few days my service will get cut off until I do the update it seems. The first time it happened, I left the update to sit for a week then I have no service. Until I updated. This just happened to me again today, however this time I into left the software update for 2 days. Then I had no service again so I tried updating it and it fixed it. So I found the solution I guess, however I find this very annoying, I would like to know if there is a fix for thought

Solution: It’s possible that this might just be a coincidence as your phone should not lose service if you do not install the software update. For this particular problem I suggest that you backup your phone data then do a factory reset. Once the reset is complete you should use the phone as you normally would and check if the issue still occurs.

S8+ Stuck In Safe Mode

Problem: My Samsung Galaxy S8+ is stuck on safe mode since yesterday when the Google maps app crashed. I have tried everything but still safe mode is on. I was able to do a factory reset using the phone options through the phone setting because I couldn’t do it as you advice in your website because when I pressed and hold the Volume Up, Home and Power buttons, the Android System Recovery never appeared. I was wondering if you can help me to get the steps to try flashing the phone firmware using ODIN. I have never try something like that but I have nothing to lose anyway since my phone is very old so I may have to buy another if this one gets damaged but I would like to try this ODIN you mention to see If I can solve the problem cause my phone is still in good shape.

Solution: If you have already performed a factory reset but then the problem still persists then this is very likely a hardware related problem already. Sometimes this can be caused by a button that is always activating which is why the phone always boots in Safe Mode. You can however try to flash the phone with its stock firmware file using Odin. You can get the file as well as the instructions on how to flash your phone from the Sammobile website. If flashing the phone fails to fix the problem then you will have to bring this to a service center and have it checked.

S8+ Unfortunately has stopped working Error

Problem: I have earlier too faced the problem of “Unfortunately, has stopped working” and constant restarting itself again and again but with Factory reset i can again use my phone for a period of time . But this time even after factory reset my phone screen on reboot constantly showing “unfortunately has stopped working” and screen is blank . Help!

Solution: To fix this problem you should start the phone in recovery mode then from here do a wipe the cache partition of the device. Restart your phone then check if the issue still occurs. If it does then you should backup your phone data then do a factory reset again.
