How To Guide Install One UI 5.0 (Android 13) beta on unsupported countries

Search This thread
Hello everyone! 😁

One UI 5.0 beta is out, so I have put together this guide on installing it on your Galaxy device. I will show you how to sideload the beta even though the beta programme may not be available in your country or may be full.

❗ NOTE: When you sideload the beta, you will not receive OTA updates automatically. You must install the stable One UI 5.0 when it's released (or downgrade back to One UI 4.1) via Odin.

  10. Back to Settings, tap on Developer options at the bottom.

Hi! Is there any personal data lost or applications to be reinstalled?
If you have the exact same version the update is from (down to the CSC), the update will not wipe anything. But this is beta software and problems can happen, whether in the installation or afterwards. Your data could be irrevocably lost.

Do not try to install the beta if you're not comfortable with the idea of losing data.

P.S.: If your CSC is not supported and you have to flash the same CSC as the update first for it to work, you will lose data switching CSCs.

I had found this:

Locally with Alliance Shield (no PC needed):
0. Download the needed firmware and the Alliance Shield X app (PlayStore).
1. Open the Alliance Shield X App and complete setup (Account creation and Knox permissions)
2. Rename the downloaded Firmware-File to "Update.zip" (without Quotes) and move it to the root storage directory (/storage/emulated/0)
3. Open the "App Manager" inside the Alliance Shield.
4. Search for "Software Update" and select the option with the purple/white Icon.
5. Go to the activities and search for "com.idm.fotaagent.enabler.ui.admin.main.AdminMainActivity"
6. Select the Option and open it
7. Press on sideload and select the Update-File
8. Wait for the installation to complete..."

I didn't need 5 minutes
I followed this and it booted back up in A12 instead of the beta. Is there any reason it would do this?

hi,

With Alliance, it performs the entire process of loading it through the sideload and copies the update package. it restarts and the android comes out with the blue bar loading and at 25% it gives an error.

    @BredzProh - looks to.he Exynos specific ? If so, Could you please mention in the title to avoid mishaps and confusion ? :)
    Hello!
    It's Exynos-specific for now only.
    I will constantly keep updating the description with the new links like I did last year.
    So when Snapdragon is out, I will update the pinned comment and description.

    Sorry for the confusion!

    Just note that the video was made for OneUI 4 not 5...but it is the same. Also some 4.0 referrence leftover in the text at step 24.

    Installing now...
