How to capture the update.bin file link from samsung servers to share with other people (Very Easy! and takes less than a minute):
There is no root required!
1. Download HTTP canary app and install it: Link
2. Open the app, scroll all the way down and accept user license agreement, press configure then ok on the pop up on the following screen, then press skip on the top right, dismiss welcome message, you should get to a screen that says "tap the floating button to start capture".
3. Leave the app and go to settings and start the software update normally by pressing "download" on the update screen, don't pause it just yet.
4. Go back to canary app and start the capture process by pressing the little circle at the bottom right, if the CA certificate message pops up again dismiss it by pressing "not now", the button should turn green, there will be one or two options that have appeared, one of them is gonna be the link, it should start with something like this:
For other methods for capturing check this guide.
1. Download SDK platform tools https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools
2. Extract the file in your desktop.
3. Inside the extracted folder, put the update.zip file you downloaded.
4. Inside this folder, holding left shift, do a right click with the mouse and select "open command prompt here", The command prompt will open.
5. Shutdown your phone and connect it to your pc with an original usb cable.
6. Using one of the two methods mentioned later, go into recovery mode.
7. Select "update via ADB". (scroll down using the volume buttons and select using the power button).
8. In the command prompt on the PC run the following command:
9. Wait to see that the daemon has started and that your device is found.
10. If you device is found, run the following command:
./adb sideload update.zip
11. The update process will start. You will see a percentage counting. First it will verify, then patch etc. Do not move the cable, disconnect the phone or power off the PC.
Once the process is completed (it takes some time) the phone will boot itself, optimize applications and then you should be done!
There are two methods that you can use to get into recovery mode:
1. Connect your phone to your PC (Make sure USB debugging is on).
2. Using ADB, enter the command ./adb reboot recovery
3. Wait a little and you should be in recovery mode.
1. Power off your device
2. Connect your device to a PC or connect the AKG earphones.
3. Hold down Power+VolumeUp buttons and keep pressing them until you enter recovery mode.
Upgrading to the beta will not trip knox or affect warranty in any way if done by the methods above.
Don't install a beta unless you are fully aware what you are going into.
Don't install the beta if you want your phone to be completely stable, IT'S a BETA.
It's recommended to make a backup of your data before updating to the Android 14 Beta. However, the update does not delete your data, it is just a precaution.
-Make sure you download the correct update.zip file for your model. For ex. SM-S908N update file will not flash successfully with SM-S908B. If the update is not out for your model yet or maybe no one has pulled it yet, you don't have an option except to wait.
-Take note of the build you have to be on in order to update successfully, these will usually be on the update.zip link itself in post #2, check the build you have on your phone in about->software in settings, the last 4 characters in the build number is what you are looking for.
-Rename the .bin file to update.zip in order to be able to flash it from recovery correctly.
-A common mistake done by some people is that they see the file named update while its a WinRAR.zip file already, then they add another .zip making the name of the file update.zip.zip which will not be flashed successfully, So make sure you do it right.
-Updating to the beta is AT YOUR RISK, No one is responsible if anything goes wrong. However, the chance of errors is very small.
You will not receive OTA updates again UNTIL you are on a software version that gets released later for your original CSC, thats most likely not happening before the BETA is over.
My Galaxy S22 Ultra isn't from a country that has a beta program. My CSC is XSG, so sadly i will not be able to pull the update.zip files unfortunately, But i will try my best to keep the thread updated with the latest beta update.zip file (If/when someone pulls it).
