Official beta build was pulled directly from the phone that downloaded the OTA update. These are not the leaked builds like before but rather official beta ota builds pushed by Samsung.

Please read the Title properly before asking if it will work on SM-G960F variant. This OTA is only for US factory unlocked model. And do not ask me if I can pull firmware for Exynos variant.

This post will be updated a soon as new official builds will be available.

Beta 1/ZRK9:
This OTA file can be flashed directly from recovery but user needs to be on specific build. In this case user must be on Latest Oreo Firmware ARJ2
ARJ2 to ZRK9: https://mega.nz/#!TjwGxYqa!o2sJ49Stk2GzUFhFXX1Hed8hSOsAVkfaBPVRWY989QM

Beta 2/ZRKJ:
This OTA file can be flashed directly from recovery but user needs to be on specific build. In this case user must be on Beta 1 (ZRK9)
ZRK9 to ZRKJ: https://mega.nz/#!ri4CxSba!rHDSXcTwe84tctx2OvJUdYcrCYAFQHe8iVJ7Xe343YQ

Hotfix1(ZRKJ-to-ZRKP)/ZRKP:
This OTA file can be flashed directly from recovery but user needs to be on specific build. In this case user must be on Beta 2 (ZRKJ)
ZRKJ to ZRKP: https://mega.nz/#!37wSgQbB!uHrz1VfD62AVX0D6buq625XlrDB_3gikY_iQ5p0-MhI

Beta 3(ZRKP-to-ZRL5)/ZRL5:
This OTA file can be flashed directly from recovery but user needs to be on specific build. In this case user must be on Hotfix 1 (ZRKP)
ZRKJ to ZRKP: https://mega.nz/#!vuIRHSrB!9QKURQcLzCZAOu8VHLRE2OAH2uFD7lD5rMRLRLaue-I

Note: All the future builds will be incremental and can only be flashed from specific pie build to another. For example Beta 2 will be flashable from Beta 1. Users won't have to flash back to Oreo and than flash next pie builds like when leaked builds were available.

This is how updates are going to be:
ARJ2--> Beta 1 (ZRK9) --> Beta 2 --> Beta 3 --> Beta 4 .........................................

When I flashed ARJ2 on my Verizon S9 I didn't have any signal but on ARI6 and the ZRK6 build I'm on now everything works fine any ideas why

Also is there anyway to use the Verizon video calling and Verizon apps on the U1 firmware

Does it require full wipe through Recovery or I can flash it while keeping all of my data?

Also it doesn't work through sideload. And I have ARJ2

Thank you for this. Was able to go from ARIB to ARJ2, then ZRK9 on my USCC S9. Did not wipe data.

    High level steps to sideload: Download adb minimal tools from androidfilehost and extract files. Download and install Samsung Android driver from Samsung. Download beta2.zip from this thread to the same folder you extracted adb minimal tools. Reboot phone to recovery by powering off, then vol+, bixby key held while powering on. Pick apply update from adb option, plug phone into computer and open elevated command prompt window on computer. Change folder to the adb and beta2.zip files folder. Type command adb start-server then adb sideload beta2.zip. Sit back and have a coffee.
