short answer: NO! (you could have found that for yourself if you weren't so lazy to read previous posts!)...

You have to flash ALL 4 files: AP BL CP & CSC_BTU -> your device will be resetted afterwards!

There was a lot of confusion yesterday about CSC and HOME_CSC, some members kept insisting that using HOME_CSC works (i kept telling them it doesn't), i guess that's why junior members keep asking about it.

Hello

I flash + update to the newest beta 3. I was on XID before i flash, and i read several page back that when i want to get beta program, i need to be at BTU CSC, so i flash CSC from BTU firmware.
My problem now, i cant downgrade my phone to MM XID, alwaus getting error at hidden.img

I try to search for workaround, that some say it failed because it flash old bootloader (XID) over newest one (BTU). I have seen tutorial to remove hidden.img and re packacke it with 7zip.

But when i insert the edited file to odin, odin gave error that md5 is not correct.

Any workaround to get downgrade again to XID from BTU? Or i shoud wait to final Nougat and can i flash it over this BTU?

I hope someone can help me, thank you so much.

Recover your phone to MM by using the PC version of Smart Switch.

It's good to see Samsung allowing shortcuts in the notification bar from 3rd party apps...

Spotify, Shazam and Google are on here now.

Scroll notification bar all the way down, select three dots top right, then edit and they'll be at the end, assuming these apps are installed.

Thanks. It seems it's an app specific feature. Though couldn't find google music. I think it needs root but I guess we should wait till stable build is out then mess around.

i have flashed the home_csc and registered.

When i press "download updates manually" it says "Unable to update the software. A network or server error occurred. Try again later."

Even I deregistered, but no luck. Same error message.

anyone?
Had the same issue.. Check the applied csc in recovery mode..

Does anybody knows if you do a factory reset on beta3, will i loose the registration in beta program or will i end at beta1?
thanks for answers!

you dont lose your registration after factory reset when you were registered.


For all:

If somebody else is experiencing that the S-view Cover won't work:
I could resolve it only through a factory reset. Only wiping cache didn't solve the problem.

You'll be just fine and will retained on Beta latest also will not loose the registration cause it depends on your samsung account. if you deregister only then you'll loose the registration.
cheers mate

    Proof ??

    All these people commenting saying they're going back to MM is breaking my heart... You opted IN to test this firmware and report back to Samsung on any issues and provide logs etc to aid them in polishing nougat, yet you all jump in and post about how you got the OTA then 2 hours later cry that it's too leggy and missing features and not performing as you'd expect...

    If you didn't want to have an unstable software on your phone, don't opt in to things like this.

    Inb4, yes I am on the nougat beta

    FAQ - Samsung Galaxy S7 (Edge) Beta 1/2/3

    PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN! THX!

    Samsung Galaxy S7 (Edge) Nougat Beta

    :confused:Who can update to Beta 2/3 etc?
    Currently only officially registered via the Samsung Beta Program Users are able to upgrade OTA to the newest betas

    :(Can I register for the Samsung Beta Program?
    No. Currently the beta program is full and no new users are allowed into the program

    :angel:Will Samsung extend the Beta Program?
    Only Samsung knows. There are rumours that Samsung might extend the Beta Program to more countries. But this is a big maybe. So only time will tell.

    :(Can someone share a link for Beta 3 so I can update my leaked Beta that I flashed via ODIN?
    No. Since Beta 3 is not a full firmware, but an update, there is no single Download available.

    :(Can someone provide the Update File?
    It seems that it would be possible, but with a lot of work including downgrading, ADB, fastboot commands etc etc so this seems unlikely to happen. Also it is important to have TWO Update Files one from Beta 1 to Beta 2 and then from Beta 2 to Beta 3. Just an Update from Beta 2 to Beta 3 will not work.

    :(Can I use a Samsung Account from a friend/stranger to upgrade my device?
    No. Officially registered Accounts are also connected to the IMEI of the device. So its of no use.

    :cool:Can I use a custom ROM and get Beta 3
    Of course you can install a Custom ROM which includes Beta 3. But be aware that it will trip KNOX and void warranty of your device.

    :good:Can I downgrade to Marshmallow?
    Yes. Just use Smartswitch on your PC/Mac and do a Recovery

    :eek:Will I be able to use Beta 1 until the official Nougat Update comes?
    Probably. Currently there seems no expiration date on the betas.

    :fingers-crossed:Can I update from Beta 1 to the final Version once it is released?
    Yes. It might work via OTA, but for sure you are able to upgrade via SmartSwitch on your PC/Mac.

    All you guys registered in Beta posting pics and etc. none of you could save the OTA file before updating?!?!

    No one saved beta-2, now no one save beta-3. I am getting seriously frustrated now. What are we even doing here?

    You are so happy to get the OTAs and didn't even think for a moment about the thousands of people who are not registered and could use your help. Sad...

    Sorry, just feeling bad for being stuck at beta-1.

    Stop whining, ok?

    It's your own fault, you didn't register in time for the beta and not everyone wants to root their device for your laziness! :eek:
