I have compiled a list of things that does not work on this Pie update as of now. Tested on S9+ (SM-G965U) with various leaked Pie Builds (Originally SM-G965U1 unlocked, but flashed SM-G965U firmware G965USQUS3ARG8 to install Android Pie).

Build CRI5
  • Secure Folder. Unable to open the folder even after clearing app data. Clean odin flash, adb sideload then factory reset made it to work.
  • Dolby Atmos option doesn't function and audio quality is poor/not optimized.
  • Navigation Gesture. It works partially. Gestures are working properly and it does not hide the Navigation bar in this build like its supposed to. Full Navigation bar appear after swiping up for gestures.
  • Night Theme Toggle. Night theme is applied throughout the system regardless of updating the option.
  • [B]Night theme in Messages app[B] is not applied properly, Contact name text color is same as background card color which makes in invisible.
  • Samsung Galaxy Friends. Found this new option in Accessories which doesn't do anything at this moment. Accessories option in Settings is no longer available after clean flash.
  • App Icon badges. Doesn't show dot or notification number based on app notification. Its working after Clean Flash.
  • Typographic View Style for Notification on Lock screen doesn't change anything. Works after clean flash.
  • Image Detail Swipe up gesture in Camera and Gallery app is glitchy.
  • Samsung Pay doesn't work if its clean install of Pie update, only works in dirty install.
  • Samsung Theme is not fully baked. Applying theme from theme store only makes partial changes to the system.
  • Samsung DeX leaves the screen lit up.
  • Samsung Gear Device incompatibility. Unable to connect Samsung Gear watches through Galaxy Wearable app. Notice with message "Check weather your system software is compatible or needs to be updated, then try again" appears while trying to pair the device.


Build CRI6
  • WiFi Call quality is poor.
  • Secure Folder only works after clean flash.
  • Smart View or so called Screen Mirroring doesn't connect to device.
  • Dolby Atmos option seems to have some changes in audio quality but is not fully optimized like in Oreo.
  • Samsung Pay doesnt work if its clean install of Pie update, only works in dirty install.
  • Image Detail Swipe up gesture in Camera and Gallery app is glitchy.
  • Night Theme Toggle seems to make some changes in bit is not fully baked to look nice and prettier yet. It just looks work in progress.
  • Navigation Gesture. It works partially. Gestures are working properly and it does not hide the Navigation bar in this build like its supposed to. Full Navigation bar appear after swiping up for gestures.
  • Samsung DeX leaves the screen lit up.
  • Samsung Theme is not fully baked. Applying theme from theme store only makes partial changes to the system.
  • Samsung Gear Device incompatibility. Unable to connect Samsung Gear watches through Galaxy Wearable app. Notice with message "Check weather your system software is compatible or needs to be updated, then try again" appears while trying to pair the device.
  • Bluetooth Media Audio Volume limited the max default threshold. When prompted to increase volume beyond threshold warning doesn't go away after pressing OK. Volume remains the same.
  • USB Host Mode option is unable to set connected device as host. As a result, unable to use ADB. This issue only appear to be for few select people but its worth mentioning as a issue.
  • Samsung Cloud doesnt sync images to and from Gallery properly. Its a hit and miss.


Build CRI7
  • Phone Calls have issue in voice clarity. People on other end complain voice is small and little bit muffled.
  • WiFi Call quality is poor.
  • Secure Folder only works after clean flash.
  • Smart View or so called Screen Mirroring doesn't connect to device.

  • Image Detail Swipe up gesture in Camera and Gallery app is glitchy.
  • Night Theme Toggle seems to make some changes in system apps but is not fully baked to look nice and prettier yet. It just looks like its work in progress.

    • None
    • Corner display cutout

Secret code to change Network code and Sales code aka CSC code *#243203855# is functional.
Since some of us installed T-mobile firmware on devices from other carrier or factory unlocked devices from Samsung, this menu helped me to get rid of T-mobile's annoying Magenta boot screen.

Thanks to following people to help test Android Pie build and report the features that are broken or not working:
Thank you all for great support to this thread. As the pole suggested to include new features on each builds as well for that I will need some help to compile list. If anyone is interested to help and test to compile a list together with me, it will be much appreciated and list can be compiled faster. Please PM me

Samsung Pay was working fine for me until I decided to clear data of the app because it was not taking fingerprints, and guess what it stopped working for good. I will add that to the list

For AOD try to clear data for Always On Display app from Settings>>Apps>>Show System Apps. That should do the trick.

Samsung Theme is not fully baked yet and is not able to apply theme throughout the system, so I suppose I can add that to the list.

Thanks for the update for DeX, I dont have a DeX with me to try it out but I can add that to the lis as well.

Can you explain more about custom sounds. I am not sure if I understood what you meant.

And what is the build number you are on, is it CRI5 or CRI6? Please let me know, because I have intended to make list based on builds

I gave it a shot to try my custom ringtone and reboot. My settings for custom sounds stayed as is. I did not have to set my custom ringtone again.
