    Thread Easiest way to update to Android 11?

    I have an Exynos that has been bootloader unlocked. I flashed someone's version based on Android 10 last year and am looking to move up to 11. Can someone please point me to a walkthrough? I still have Odin, etc. installed on my computer. Thanks.

    Post Can't install TWRP without rooting; need... better drivers...?

    No worries. Thank you for your help. I use Odin to install the Devbase ROM, right? Or can I use TWRP? Edit: apparently it works just fine to install it with TWRP. Thank you so much. This time TWRP works just fine for me and the new ROM is great.

    From what I have read, buying a US-based Note 9 (Snapdragon chipset), I will not be able to unlock the bootloader. 1) Is that correct? If I buy an "international version" (Exynos chipset), I will definitely be able to unlock the bootloader. 2) Is that correct?
