I changed my CSC to XEU, now I can see the banner for OneUI 2.0 beta program,

But cannot register because I don't have UK sim card.
Looks cannot see this banner or cannot register anymore once I upgraded to OneUI 2.0 by sideload, right?

As the previous year, every beta release should be shared from a fellow member on his good will and applied manually. There is no way to get the OTAs or initial beta rollout if you are not with a UK sim card (in that case or other country if they release it there and the build is for there).
 
Well, it's quite solid for an Initial Beta.

I like the Google Nav Bar gestures, but man i need to get used to it, really struggling to understand "Recent Apps" switching.
What i absolutely loved was the reintroduction of white listing apps on Device Care/Battery.

Obviously, there are some annoyances too.
One was the empty and useless space that is left under the keyboard, which later i found out can be removed on the Nav Bar settings.
Force Dark Mode on developer settings seems to force a few eye damaging apps in to somehow-darkmode that dont support it, which is acceptable especially for Facebook, but weirdly seems to convert a few Dark Mode compatible apps back to a mixture of Light and Dark mode, in this case, Facebook Messenger is rendered useless.
That said, this is a beta and was very much expected. Next to be seen is battery life, which of course i am not having any hopes there either. Pretty sure it'll be hard to match the 24h battery life with 7h SoT.

Is the stock only way to go or is there a root option for Q beta?
Like flashing on top of rooted Pie or using the Pie root method etc.

My only annoyances apart from some little hickups:
Stock samsung internet browser not working without private dns somehow. Beta samsung internet works fine.
Some stutters, flashes with app switching.
Lasly, random appearence of google assistant hints while gesture hints are off.
Oh I forgot to add, battery info is horrible, no screen on time etc and it is a bit buggy when you click to times.

Sorry this is not what I meant but sentence is clearly wrong. There is SOT but it is for the day, not from unlock as far as I understood.
