Uninstall Android 8.0.0


I love trying beta versions. However, I don’t care for this version and would like to return my Nexus 6P to Android 7.1.2. When I installed 8, I read that it’d be easy to return to my previous version. But, so far, it doesn’t seem easy! Any advice welcome!



I’ll save you from trying to answer me. Here is what I found on Android Central: To leave the beta program, simply press the button on the Android Beta program page to unenroll. Your phone will receive an over-the-air update to return to the stable version of Android 7.1.2 Nougat, but your phone will be wiped clean upon rebooting, so back up your stuff.

Nougat 7.1.2 is fine. But I was curious about 8 for its reported battery
saving. However, I didn’t like its Settings format, so I’m returning to
