All Sensors Not Working After Oreo Update?

Since updating to Android 8.0 (Oreo) All the Sensors Not Working, I Know the sensors not working from test *#0*# and Test Hardware by Samsung Members, I got some Information problem from Samsung Members Hardware Test Result;

- Accelerometer

- Barometer

- Light Sensor

- Gyroscope

- Magnetic Sensor

and I think Proximity not working too cos if i making or receive call phone display won't turn off or black screen.

Trying to factory reset, Wipe Data & Cache nothing change, and i got Error like this;

#fail to open recovery_cause(No such file or directory)#

  1. Reboot Recovery Cause is [UNKNOWN]#

File-Based OTA

Supported API: 3

  1. MANUAL MODE V1.0.0#

Successfully verified dmverify hash tree

E:Failed to clear BCB message: failed to find misc partition

This happened after Updating OTA to android 8.0, I Have tried to Flash Manualy, and Downgrade to Nougat, but problem still note fixed, Someone may know how?

Notes:

- Before updating nothing else, all working perfectly, Proximity, Gyro, etc.

- Sometimes IRIS Sensor crash.

Same here, after the update nothing works, even the GPS cuts out after a couple of seconds. I've done the Cache clear and a Factory Reset, still nothing. First thing on Monday I'm taking it back to orange. I'm from Romania.

I purchased mine in Honduras, have no warranty, product is official, sensors are frozen, and we dont have a Service Center here, so there go $700 down the drain, have had this problem since update. I guess I’ll switch companies, after having all Galaxies ever made, stopped purchasing after Note 8 because of this. All they comment in the community is different region, no resolution.

How do I fix it if I brought the $@$* phone second hand and no warranty. I think I should have stuck with Apple iPhone never had a problem with their phones and I have been using them for over 4 years. Don't listen to everyone that's says samsung galaxy s8 are better because they &&^&^$^ suck arse
