I brought a pre owned phone that already had android 12 beta on it, I want to put it back to android 11, but unable to unlink the beta programme to use smart switch to do it due to me not being the one that done it in the first place, does anyone know how I can downgrade please

Are you not able to connect it to Samsung Smart Switch on PC and then do a firmware restore (I think it's called the emergency restore or something like that) from there and it should hopefully either restore it to Android 11 or most likely the final version of 12 that's currently being rolled out?

I looked at emergency restore but it looks for a previous back up or something like that I will have a better look at smart switch in morning to see if I missed anything

What about a straight up software update from settings? I was in the beta testing and then when the final one came out, it was a direct up to the final version of Android 12 from software update.

The final.update for my phone won't be out until January, I ended up having put a clean install of android 11 on my phone manually, now I don't have no bugs thankfully
