OXM is a Multi-CSC -> many CSC's are included



If you want to know your CSC, go to "Software Info" on your device, scroll down to "Software Serviceprovider" and post that info here (or a screenshot)

took me a while to figure this one out man.

quick question...

while in recovery doing the beta updates i was able to install the first beta update and then it would not mount my sd card. anyone know why?

BTW anyone got a link for how to flash the ARK2? while the first message shows what you need to download it doesnt really provide any guides on how to do it exactly. i managed to do it myself but it could be usefull for people who dont know how to do it.

Hey all is there anywhere to keep track of the updates roll out for different regions? I just got mine (saudi arabia), before setting up my device I've just completed upgrading oct, nov and dec...

Hello,
I cannot know for sure if this has been answered or no because i got really confused reading old posts. So if someone could please help me with this answer:

If i have my EGY frimware version, can I use the update just to get OTAs in the future?

Updated to new version... It's a incredible mess... Biometrics stuff doesn't work, Samsung account prompt me to log, I put my password, click OK and then it ask me again, and again... What's happened?? No one with problems like this?

I made a reset with beta 3...
Tried a reboot, now biometrics works, but it's really strange... I have biometrics registered, but I can't change type of lock, I have only swipe... I power on the screen, the iris sensor start to search my eyes, but if I swipe without looking at it I can unlock... Weird...
Tomorrow if I find time will do a reset!! Anyway really strange that only me faced this problem... I've updated as always, no less no more... :/

EDIT: a second reboot solved lockscreen problems... Will see tomorrow if all works fine :D

Did you mean "sd card"? if so, I'd like to recommend you to use ADB method, and everything including "how to" is already there in the OP aka post #1, please read it all carefully and follow the steps then things will turn out to be fine for sure, good luck!

Edit: Additional info for you. I used ADB method on Beta2 and Beta3 too, coz I couldn't do it with SD Card too.

    Samsung’s customer support staff may be wrong and clueless too many times to count, but they might have been right about the Galaxy Note 9 joining the One UI (Android Pie) beta. Well, Samsung might have, at the very least, pondered starting a Galaxy Note 9 Android Pie beta program even if it won’t actually do it. This is supported by test Pie firmware discovered by GalaxyClub for the Note 9 in Europe and South Korea.

    Galaxy Note 9 Android Pie beta still possible?
    Samsung is currently testing firmware versions N960FXXU2ZRKE and N960NKSU2ZRKF for the Galaxy Note 9. The interesting part here is the letter ‘Z’ in the build number. It has been used by Samsung for beta firmware since it began having public beta programs with the Galaxy S6. The Galaxy S9’s One UI beta, for example, comes with build number G960FXXU2ZRKA in Germany. And, before Android Pie, no such test firmware were ever spotted for a Galaxy Note flagship while a beta program was going on for that year’s Galaxy S smartphone.

    It makes the presence of such firmware for the Galaxy Note 9 quite interesting. And with the Galaxy S9 beta program having started less than a week ago, Samsung does have time to include the Galaxy Note 9 in the program. But, as we said at the beginning, it’s also possible the company has backed out of doing that despite having planned it at some point. We hope that’s not the case, of course, and we will now be spending all our waking hours looking at the Samsung Members app on the Galaxy Note 9 for any sign of the Android Pie/One UI beta.
