Jokes aside... Any of you guys rooted your device at all recently? I used to root and install custom ROMs on all my phones but haven't done since I got my S9+. I didn't want to trigger the Knox counter. But after seeing all the AOSP ROMs available for our device I'm definitely tempted! Especially now mist of them are running 9.0.... just wondered if you had dabbled?
I'm an ex developer from XDA, (search Garner) I've always had android devices since 2009 the LG G1 days 😉. This is seriously the only device I've never rooted, AOSP ROMs that are out for it are not that appealing as of yet. Loved the pixel devices for development though the newer Samsung range I.e. this is alot more powerful than the pixel series as of yet that's the reason I jumped ship 😊
Well blow me side ways Garner!! A fellow XDA'er!! I'm thinking that once this main pie update has been and gone that maybe in a few months I might start flashing ROMs again just to at least be upto date with Google's main releases. I actually thought Linage was looking pretty slick now for the S9?
Been on XDA since 2009 😬
I thought linage for the galaxy s9 was just an improved version of touchwizz/One UI whatever they want to call it these days. Project treble is the best think since they did the Nexus experience software on the galaxy S4...that was 6 years ago wow! I was in Turkey on holiday when that was released 😆
Hi @Cumbria. The One UI is still scheduled for January, no specific date as of yet (it's only the 16th). As for owning the phone for 2 weeks without an update; these aren't released on a fortnightly basis.
ITS still not released in the UK. I'm starting to think I should've stayed wid Apple I've had the galaxy s9+ for 2 weeks and I haven't even had 1 update I'm EXTREMELY mad now samsung don't give a ***** out people in the UK. They say they do but in their heads they're just caring about other countries
Yeah Cumbria!! This is not crapple that only update their eligible devices 1 or 2 times a year with *****...whoops i mean ios software! In this day and age most high end android device manufacturers you get monthly security updates which are generally at the start of each month.
Can anyone tell me why I still can't get the update? I bought my S9+ (SM-G965F) from Amazon.de. I live in the UK and use Plusnet (reseller of EE). My phone should be unlocked?
This is what mine currently shows.
Its a pain that I still can't get it. I always bought unlocked phones so I didn't have to wait around for updates.
Is there a way to get the update manually that doesn't void the warranty etc so I'm not waiting around for who knows how long?
Amazon might also sell things from grey import so its kinda hard to judge if its a German phone based on that. You might however try to enforce the update by checking manually. (There is also some delay on that to prevent everyone from updating at the same time, but after the release is set - You should be able to enforce it inside a week).
You can update the firmware using the Odin software, https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s9-plus/how-to/official-stock-firmware-thread-samsung-t37644...
I haven't had a chance to do it myself yet however because my girlfriend uses the phone.
