When the S21 series got one ui 4 beta last year, does anyone know how long after the S20 series received it? Most likely we are looking at a September release but Samsung are getting pretty quick at rolling the beta software out. Never has it arrived as early as August.

"RAM Plus can now be completely disabled" also caught my eye. 🤔

Who needs that even with 12GB RAM? 😅

In Linux (as well as Android), free RAM is wasted RAM. 😉
Well, it is good to have it optional, but there should be an option to disable it.
I am wondering what are they going to do with system performance, as according to them we should see improvement over 4.1 but I am a bit afraid it is just trash talk.

Nah,too many people said the animations and overall ui feels better,now.. Idk if it will be a really that big change at the end of the beta but we will have to see

About the beta of OneUI 5, I was asking myself: If we have DBT CSC, VPN from Germany, and the SIM card removed, we would not be able to download it officially from Samsung Members? Of course cleaning Data of the app.

Cheers

I'm in the UK so I'll switch my CSC to BTU when the beta is available. Currently using DBT.
Hi @adamlee2012..I'm presuming that you changed the CSC using the app listed earlier. If so, did you get Samsung pay to work. I changed my CSC using the app but Samsung pay went kaput and changing the CSC back was of no use. If not, pls ignore this question and carry on as you were :)

People say a lot of things, plus whatever is being tested now is not a final build and everything might change. I will believe when I see fluidity, so far my S21 is slower than old oneplus phones....

    There we go, now on DBT with September patches
    Note that if you install this you will not be able to jump to the beta, until a new beta 3 firmware is released with that upgrade path

    In this thread, you can discuss and share the Mega links of new firmwares (OFFICIAL STOCK) for the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G!
    NO CUSTOM ROM's and/or ROOT-talk

    How to flash the firmware to your phone:

    Odin.png


    1. Extract (un-rar) the firmware file (i.e. to folder C:\Odin) ***
    2. Download Odin v3.14.4
    3. Extract the Odin ZIP file (i.e. to folder C:\Odin)
    4. Open Odin
    5. Power OFF your S21 Ultra 5G
    6. Reboot Phone in Download Mode: Connect USB-cable to your computer. Hold down "Volume up" and "Volume down" at same time. While holding down, connect the USB-cable to your phone. Or use the command "adb reboot-bootloader".
    7. Wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
    8. Add the firmware files to their designated slots (AP in AP, BL in BL, CP in CP, HOME_CSC in CSC). USERDATA stays EMPTY!
    10. Click the start button, sit back and wait few minutes for the device to automatically restart.

    *** You can always find the LATEST firmware in message #2

    Greetings to all. Just dropped by for a little more "Unsubstantiated Update Claim Game" or UUCG for short, cleaning! Since this appears to be an ongoing matter, I will be happy to just drop by everyday and remove these little buggers with immediate effect in an effort to keep the thread on topic, which is why some of you reported these in the first place.

    This way, it will eliminate the reports, and save our Mods, me in particular, extra typing practice, even though I need it!

    Cheers to all: Badger50

    You know One great thing noticed in OneUI 5.0 is that battery killer shacking wakelock finally completely removed by Samsung. Just 5 minutes ago it came to my knowledge while digging oneui 5.0 for development purpose.

    @Badger50 sorry for posting oneui 5.0 related stuff but indeed this matter most discussed in this thread so sharing good news that going to happen in future for all! This is something that users on this thread like to hear too!
    Kindly feel free to remove if you find it inappropriate.

    For the love of Pete!! Thread cleaned again!
    Can we PLEASE stop with all the unnecessary back-n-forth with these updates!!!! I keep getting reports from various members about constant OT, griping, whining, this that, he said this he said that, and disrespectful and snarky comments CRAP!! So from now on, if I have to action further reports from members that have been repeatedly warned, I will take up the issue with you regarding XDA Rule #2 for member conduct via PM, which can/may result in disciplinary actions regarding your account.

    So Please, keep this thread "ON TOPIC" out of respect for the OP, and for all other XDA members. THANK YOU!!

    -Regards: Badger50

    I love the tension when an update comes. The anticipation of an update, the climax when it's released and then the oh....that was crap. Cycle restarts.
