So far beta 4 is smooth as butter. The previous bugs are now fixed (so far). Let's see how battery life is in the next days. If I can say something it would be: some lags here and there, mostly in the toggles menu. I noticed animation is changed again a little bit while closing the apps.

No hex pro here. I just applied my old hex theme which i had before i updated to beta 4 and its working fine.
Definitely not working, disabled.hex+ and pro, after applying high contrast 2 and reboot half the theming disspaears, quick settings and notifications are themed, but the core interface, settings, app backgrounds are defaulted.

At first everything was working fine but I noticed that some of my apps also reverted back to default after time. Went back to default theme, reapplied my theme in hex and it's working again. At least for now.[emoji2371]

    Thanks to all the people who pulled the update.zip files allowing us in other regions to test and use the next version of android, we would have never been able to do this without you guys!

    Hopefully our paths cross again sometime in the future. See you in next year's beta!

    Thanks guys for providing the links and helping others during the last months! Has been a journey again.

    Apologies for not putting the download links in post 2. But due to the migration I am not able to edit them (post to long error).Hope you can find what you're looking for with the search tool.

    See you next year ;)


    Samsung is currently testing and rolling out the OneUI 3.0 / Android 11 update.
    This thread will be for sharing the Update.zip files (.bin files) and for help and tips.

    This thread is for the OneUI 3.0 Beta for Exynos (International) only.
    Link to the Snapdragon Thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s20/how-to/oneui-3-0-beta-s20-ultra-beta-tread-t4143441

    - Galaxy S20+ (4G/5G) Exynos
    - Galaxy S20 Ultra Exynos

    How to install

    Youtube video by SStech, also valid for S20 series.
    Only difference is no bixby key to press.

    1. Download SDK platform tools from here https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools
    2. Extract them on your desktop.
    3. Inside the extracted folder put the update.zip
    4. Inside this folder, holding left shift, right click the mouse and select "open command prompt here". The command prompt will open.
    5. Shutdown the phone.
    6. Holding power+volume up buttons, enter into recovery mode.
    7. Select "update via ADB". (you scroll down using the volume buttons and select using the power button).
    8. Connect the phone to the PC using original samsung USB cable.
    9. In the command prompt run the following command:
    ./adb devices
    10. Wait to see that the daemon has started and that your device is found.
    11. If you device is found, run the following command:
    ./adb sideload update.zip

    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, update the apps and log into your home screen.

    SD-card method:
    1. Download the bin file and rename it to update.zip (by going to file options in win10 you can select to view the file extensions. This makes the renaming process much easier and safer, and avoids renaming the file to update.zip.zip)
    2. Copy it to the root directory of your SDcard.
    3. Shut down your phone.
    4. Hold simultaneously Power+volume up buttons to get into stock recovery.
    5. Using your volume keys navigate to "update via SdCard" and press power button to select it.
    6. Again using volume keys navigate to the file "update.zip" and press power button to select it.
    7. Update will start. Leave it till it completes. It will take some time.
    8. Phone will reboot by itself and load android.

    Original Samsung Firmware
    In case if you need to flash 2.5, you can use one of the below options.



    Note: for now after installing the beta update it isn't possible to reboot in to recovery via the VolUP+power button.
    You will have to use ADB for that: "./adb reboot recovery"
    For reboot to Download mode use the following command: "./adb reboot download"

    Installing via this way shouldn't trigger KNOX warranty void.
    However: updating to Beta is your own choice, no one is responsible if anything goes wrong

    How to capture
    HTTP Canary app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.guoshi.httpcanary
    1. Load canary
    2. Start the update download but don't pause it.
    3. Go back to canary and start that and it will grab the link.

    NOTE: after installing the update, CLEAR your cache by going into recovery (VolUP - Power)
    If you're NOT officially registered via Samsung Members, you won't receive OTA: you'll have to update every time MANUALLY with above method!
    The update.zip files are for Multi-CSC OXM only (so NOT for the South American countries which have Multi-CSC OWO or Multi-CSC OXB)

    Thanks to @henklbr for letting me copy the majority of his S10 beta threads plus being so active on this forum while not owning the S20 line anymore, the tips and help are appreciated.
    Done a clean CSC odin flash ... thanks 2Domy5
    Camera settings now working

    Fresh Installation of hex and vanced....thank you Detection

    Everything working well now.

    Thank you to all XDA members for your assistance. Very much appreciated.
    You must restore Google pay services of rom. Simply uninstall the update one
    thanks that really helped.

    Can you please explain little bit more ?

    I have the same issue...

    I went step by step through all beta updates till final(official), but Gpay is still not working....
    go to settings > apps and select google play services, then 3dot menu > uninstall updates
    (that will clear all local data for GMS)

    after that, open gpay and setup your payment method again
