Here is the site to manually update with Odin whenever it's released for our CSC but usually all 3 csc get at same time so the ota is pretty instant for this model...

theres no way to update from a downloaded zip within oneui? miui has that, pretty simple feature.

The zip will be available when the Ota comes and then you can do it from recovery menu but that also will be specific version to the oneui 3.0 one... I found the full zip and odin the cleanest to make sure it's on the latest version

Hello everyone! I made a tutorial for updating to stable One UI 3.0:






1. Download and extract both Frija and Odin.
2. Launch Frija.
3. Check the "Auto" button. Write your device's Model Number and CSC
(Your model number is at Settings, then About phone).
4. Click on "Check Update".
5. Click on "Download" and choose a folder to save the firmware.
6. After the download is complete, extract the firmware .zip.
7. Launch Odin.
8. Click the "BL" button and select the file that starts with "BL_...".
9. Click the "AP" button and select the file that starts with "AP_...".
10. Click the "CP" button and select the file that starts with "CP_...".
11. Click the "CSC" button and select the file that starts with "HOME_CSC_..." (Selecting CSC_... will wipe your data!).
12. Turn off your phone.
13. Boot into Download Mode by holding both Volume Up + Volume Down buttons and then connecting it to your PC.
14. After booting into Download Mode, press the Volume Up button to continue.
15. Back to Odin, click "Start".
16. The flashing process will be over when "PASS" is shown in Odin and your phone reboots. You may close Odin and disconnect the phone from your PC then.
17. Congrats! You have successfully flashed the latest update to your device.
18. After your phone is on, turn it off again.
19. Boot into Recovery Mode by connecting to your PC and holding Volume Up + Power Button (+ Bixby Button).
20. Navigating with the Volume Buttons and selecting with the Power Button, go to "Wipe cache partition".
21. Select "Yes".
22. Select "Reboot system now".

do we need to unlock bootloader? is this a dirty flash? i dont see wipes or format, but i only even used twrp.
The whole thing is that there is no stable 3.0 firmware for n9680 yet.

This is what Samsung HK responded to my query about the update
(In regards to your inquiry, we are sorry that we do not have accurate date of the update you mentioned, we will pass your opinion to our relevant party, and hope that there will be an update for your device as soon as possible)

This is really frustrating

That's the nail in the coffin I was waiting for scre* it I am changing to S21U definitely not the HK version
The same thought did cross my mind, but having been burned (so far at least) by Samsung on the N9860, I'm reluctant to throw £1300+ their way (N9860 cost me £853) for an official S21U because they've already pissed me off.

In addition to which, no s-pen silo and no expandable storage. Cameras might be better and so might 5G support for a local purchase, but not enough to sway me. I don't need faster processors or greater battery life.

I'm sure the N9860 will catch up soon enough (Feb) so I'll keep my powder dry for now and stick with the Note.

I couldn't agree more

    Does this guide work for rooted N9860 with Magisk/ TWRP etc - to safely update FW without losing any of root/ TWRP/ user data etc?

    Is re-flashing of vbmeta & TWRP needed again during update process?
