Galaxy S8 upgraded to Oreo now no navigation buttons

“I updated the software version on my S8 last night to the latest from Samsung. Now I cannot use my mobile phone as the Navigation Buttons are not available.”

There is an issue if the Restrictions profile was created in version 7.1 or earlier it will have parm name=“AllowNavigationBar” value=“False” / in the XML code of the restrictions profile.
This profile payload cannot be enabled or disabled through the Console Profile Configuration UI.

Just create a new Restrictions profile and it will have parm name=“AllowNavigationBar” value=“True” / by default.
