* Download adb from here https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-windows.zip
* Download and install adb drivers http://adbdriver.com/
* Copy the update.zip file to C:\adb (or wherever your adb.exe file is)
* Put your phone in recovery mode and select Apply update from ADB, then connect it to your PC
* Wait until your PC installs the drivers, if you're doing this for the first time.
* Open command prompt, navigate to C:\adb (or wherever your adb.exe and update.zip is)
* Issue the following command: adb devices
If you can see a device in 'sideload' mode, you can proceed, otherwise you may have some troubleshooting to do.

Once I upgraded my s8 + to Óreo beta, installing the update zip with the recovery stock.
I'm rooted now, but someone should try and confirm if he could do it.

EDIT: I already read that the procedure is in OP, I hope the confirmation thanks.

@henklbr please confirm me the procedure given I have never used this method, only Odin so far:
1 update to CSA3 as usual (I've always kept my country's CSC as stock, that's ITV in my case)
2 copy zip update in sd card
3 reboot in recovery and choose "apply update from sd" (or zip, whatever, I don't remember)
Doing so will not change CSC and update the device.
Is it advisable to restore the device to stock (before / after)?
Thanks in advance for your answer and for your constant help!

edit to answer @henklbr: thank you again, I will try tonight and hope everything will be fine!

Reset device is NOT necessary; ITV is in Multi-CSC OXM, so CSC will stay the same...

You can always reset your device AFTER the updates if you encounter any problems...

Edited:

Was curious about trying, but by the sounds of it, you have to be on a specific firmware version.
Then, and only then, you can apply the BETA update.

Wait for a more user friendly method. (Not that its difficult, but going from the ROM version i am on, id prefer to just grab a flashable file and keep most of my system intact, or at least a fast way to restore.
