Eight days after Samsung's release of their first Fold5 Beta test firmware for Android 14, One UI 6.0, they are rolling out their second Beta test release to enrolled users. Judging from their previous Beta, this could be their final update before a stable roll-out is made to all users.

 

Build = F946BXXU1ZWJ4

 

Download = 1012.95 MB

Build date = 11 October 2023

Camera version = 14.0.00.28

 

Security patch = 01 October 2023

It is a FOTA, (Firmware Over The Air), update and you can check... Settings > Software update... to see if it is available for you. Alternatively, you can connect to the Samsung PC suite, Smart Switch and check via that.

Here are the changes that Beta 2 addresses...

 

"Samsung says the new One UI 6.0 beta update for the Galaxy Z Fold 5 addresses a number of problems that have caused apps to crash in certain scenarios. The official changelog reads as follows:

 

  • Fixed the terminated issue when entering text with S Pen on Samsung Note.
  • Fixed the display issue when resizing after changing orientation in 3 multi-window.
  • Fixed the Taskbar not displayed intermittently.
  • Fixed the terminated issue when applying photo Portrait effect in Gallery.
  • Fixed issue where Apps and Widgets that are set up at Home disappear.
  • Many other improvements.

As far as known issues go, Samsung confirms that the new firmware hasn't addressed a number of other force-closing problems concerning the Camera, One UI Home, Systemui, and Smart Select Crop.

 

In addition, there's a problem with the new Quick Panel, where users may see an empty screen. The “home” navigation bar gesture doesn't work sometimes, and the home screen can experience some errors."

My s21 ultra is still running UI 4.1, android 12 and hasn't had a security update since September last year. Whenever I try to update, whether its via the phone or on my pc, it tells me its upto date. Any ideas how I can update everything. It's ever since I had a replacement phone after breaking my old one

Off topic I am afraid. This thread concerns the latest beta firmware for the Fold5 device. 

 

You should receive more help in the S21 section of the forums, here...

No problems. I know that it is not always easy to navigate the forums for first time posters.

 

My feeling is that the replacement phone may be to blame and you should contact a Samsung Service Centre as you may have mismatched CSC codes on your device thus preventing an OTA (Over The Air) update. Have you tried connecting your device to the Samsung Smart Switch PC suite to see if it can update you via that?

Good luck!
