Does anyone know if Samsung are launching a beta program for Android pie? The early builds are out.

Virgin is my carrier. Samsung told me just now that it 'll just be the network unlocked but the phone will still be locked by firmware 😞 I don't know what I should do?

From memory mine was S9+ BTU and BRJ6. I'm on sky mobile uk which i believe is unlocked and unbranded.

 

When you install the beta firmware it binary patches your existing image so with the posted update.zip if you aren't on that specific firmware it is likely you will run into problems.

There is a few ways to apply update.zip, this is the easiest IMO..


You can do it via ADB but that is something to difficult for some & requires a laptop with more tech knowledge. sorry..

 

You will need:
Samsung S9 or S9+
1x (Min) 2GB SD-CARD
Internet

Little Technical Knowhow

 

Lets get into how i done it..:


1. Download the update.zip on your device..(DO NOT EXTRACT)
2. Move or copy to an SD-CARD inside your device..
3. Turn phone off
4. Hold power + bixby + volumeup, only let go of power when logo apears, KEEP holding other 2 buttons..
5. Wait till you see recovery mode
6. Use volume keys to move up and down.. then select apply update from SD-CARD
7. It will then ask you to select the folder/file
8. Press power to select update.zip you downloaded earlier that is now on the SD-CARD
9. Wait for it to verify & let it restart itself..
10. Be patient as above step can take upto 30minutes

 

You will not lose data, all apps and files will stay on your device, but as always backup just incase..!! 

 

Installed on XXU for myself, worked like a charm for me, no issues at all..

 

Samsung Members APK LATEST VERSION

PLEASE READ!!

This is to just update from a BRJ6 firmware To One UI...
Check your version in settings>software information...
If you have a BRJ3 firmware i can't promise you that this will work.
Check to see if you can update to the latest November Security Patch, im sure this gets you BRJ6..

This is just an update.zip (ALL SAFE)

I do not accept resposibilty from what you do to your device, you are held accountable for anything that may happpen.. 

 

Any Problems report back here, i will reply when i can :smiling-face:


So i did this last night and it all installed perfectly - tried to use Google pay today and it says its no longer available as i might have rooted my device... any idea if this can be fixed?
