    Hi

    I am skeptical on Pie but really wanna try it becaues of the dark theme. However I'd like to be able to roll back to Oreo if Pie annoys me. Anyone know how I can install Pie but keep my Oreo bootloader so I can downgrade if I want to?

    Also how would you prevent your bootloader from changing from future updates on Pie?

    As long as your Pie version stays on bootloader v5 you should be able to go back to Oreo via Odin. When Pie eventually gets updated to bootloader v6 you will be stuck.

    But how do I make sure my bootloader stays on V5? Doesn't the Pie upgrade change the bootloader?

    I have a TMobile Note 8. Is it possible to install this unlocked Pie bootloader and still be able to use my phone like regular?

    Since I haven't actually attempted to switch back to Oreo I cannot verify that you can in fact downgrade from pie bootloader 5 to Oreo. I see that you posted the same question on XDA where you may get a more definitive answer.
