    Well that was short lived. I was holding off on accepting the update to see if it would affect this. I must have accepted the update while under the influence last night. Argh! Lol
    Maybe you can use Odin to rollback your S8 to before the update was installed. You'll need the ROM.

    Of course thats if you want your configurable Side button back. I would. I think it's a really cool feature!

    So just found this out. The update made it so you have to double tap the button to open it. Bixby still works.

    Is that also for TouchWiz? I thought people having this 'issue' were using a 3rd party launcher (Nova is the only one I've seen on the posts though). And only for T-Mobile.

    Your right. I tested it out on my (TMo) phone.

    TouchWiz. One press (lock screen and on).
    Nova. Double tap (lock screen and on).

    I have the Tmobile variant s8+ and I have my Bixby button remapped to a Mute toggle via an app called BixbyRemap.

    All the Bixby remap apps words but this is the only one that offered a Mute toggle option (that I could immediately see).

    I haven't tried to check for updates yet. I won't be worried about remapping it though.

    Remapping is nice, but if Sprint gets an update that disables it I won't be mad. I just wish Bixby was fully functional.

    Yeah I wouldn't block updates just to avoid the remap fix... there are a lot more benefits in getting updates fixing bugs, updating apps and keeping your phone secure. 7.1 will be pushed out eventually and you want to miss that for a dumb button remap? Devs will eventually find another way to remap.

    I have never owned a phone where the costs didn't outweigh the benefits of "updates". The costs have always been greater than the benefits. From glitches, worse battery life, disabling of features, uglier layout updates have ALWAYS been bad in my book. A phone will never be better than when it came out of the box. F@#k updates. I dont want to downgrade my phone. People get obsessive about updates and think they are the holy grail but I despise them with a passion. I will always use a disabler in the future ever since I used it on my Note 7.

    Here are a few examples:

    Upgrade from 4.4 to 5...Orange messages and white notifications from a nice black notification area and decent blue messages.

    Note 7 getting killed

    S8 losing remapping capabilities.

    You're kidding right??? They killed the Note 7 so people wouldn't get hurt. Also the update on the T-Mobile S8 clears up the problem with the face recognition

    You, Sir, speak my language. This is why I still run Windows 7, never buy into the "Improves Performance, Increases Battery Life, Security Update" bs. Not once have I ever worried about "Security".

    Granted, some 3rd party apps in the Play Store list additional features, bug fixes for updates, but those arrogant weekly Facebook updates "Increases Performance, Bug Fixes"? No. Not on my watch!

    Not once did anyone EVER "get hurt" with the Note 7.
    Some of us still use TRUSTY 4-digit PIN over "volunteer your biometric data and let us scan your IRIS because your life depends on some hacker breaking into your phone and stealing your life savings, because as Maybellene says, you're worth it"

    How sweet it is. Waking up to my Note 7 everyday. I wasn't duped into giving my Note back. There was a lot of myths, misinformation, and a lot fake news regarding the Note 7. Every phone maker for all models make defective units. And what I can say is this, IF it's not defective.....Then...It's not defective! πŸ˜ƒπŸ•ΊπŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

    "Home 2 Shortcut" works better. Assign a double tap of the home button to Google Now.

    To each their own, and going into the debate of should-you-shouldn't-you is pointless now, but I do remind you that most home owner/renter's and car insurance policies are void if they find you kept a Note 7 after the recall. #justsayin

    I once felt like you did, I even posted in these forms about how overblown the whole thing was. And then one day, my Note 7 got super hotcomma made a whining noise, and then permanently shut down. It would not come back on. did it smoke or explode? No, but it did get super hot comma made a noise, and then would never come on again. So no, I was not duped into turning mine back in.

    I find that I use my phone quite a bit as a flashlight, so it is very Indy now on my TMobile unit to have the Bixby button as a quick and easy way to turn on the flashlight.
