    had an issue with my screen turning on and off every 5 seconds while the lock screen was on and for the life of me couldn't figure out what might have caused it. so i stupid did the samsung smart switch to back everything up and of course it updated the software to android 9, which i can't stand. when it was all said and done, somehow the bixby button was stuck and that is what was causing the screen to turn on and off.

    is there any way to get my phone back in to the android 6 version that i loved so well? clearly this is why i never update my stuff when i like the way things are. thanks!!!

    Android 6 for the Galaxy Note 8 doesn't exist.
    Samsung first released that phone with Android 7. Maybe possible to rollback to Android 7 with root and appropriate custom ROMs?
