I'm having the same issues with mobile data loss. It's very frustrating.

Wysłane z mojego SM-G986B przy użyciu Tapatalka
I had the same today, no internet around town, but we were having a thunderstorm and i initially thought it might be that. I flashed first 4 betas wit DBT and beta 5 with BTU, i was waiting at the service centre near home and decided to try downloading DBT and reflashing, file downloaded in like 90 seconds.

Theres no 5G for my carrier in this area, so i don't know if it was an issue with my phone or the storm in town caused cell tower interference. But 5kms away everything was OK.

Can someone correct me if i'm wrong please:

I'm currently on Beta 1 for the S20+ 5G/DS (SM-G986B) on the OXM CSC (I just installed the update.zip without changing CSC)
As there is no Beta 2 available, in order to get all updates (after clicking on the Samsung Members app link in one of the posts), do I need to install the DBT Android 10 ROM in it's entirety (while using the normal non-HOME CSC so it wipes the phone and changes CSC), or is there another way around getting the updates?

You can flash BTIJ (with HOME_CSC if you don't want to wipe your phone's memory), then BTU (UK Beta) Beta 1 BTIJ -> ZTJF, then DBT (German Beta) Beta 3 ZTJF -> ZTJN all the way to Beta 5. As long as you're following version numbers, even if they're not coming from the same country, you'll be fine (it's the very same binary).

Thank you!
However; i'm currently already on ZTJA (DBT BETA 1), so when i try to install the UK BETA 1 (BTIJ-ZTJF) over this, it fails and aborts. Is the only way around this to flash back to an Android 10 Stock ROM and then run through the updates?
Will I end up losing my data if I flash the HOME_CSC while downgrading from Android 11 > Android 10 ?


Thank you for your help though dude :D

Yes you can flash BTIJ without losing data, you′ll not be able to boot the system but you can still upgrade to the betas, just follow these instructions:

You can still downgrade and not boot into BTIJ.

I was on beta1, and what I did to flash beta2 is:

reboot in bootloader
flash BTIJ (with HOME_CSC to keep data)
after the phone restarted and displayed the "Erasing" message (which doesn't erase data), I quickly pressed Vol Up + Power to enter recovery mode (still possible on BTIJ)
In recovery, formatted cache and sideloaded the beta2 update.zip
reboot and serve cold :)

Working! SM-G986B S20+ 5G Dual Sim

Thank you so much!
I've installed a BTIJ Stock ROM I had (using HOME_CSC), booted straight into recovery, wiped cache partition, applied the update.zip and it's currently booting.

NOTHING HAS BEEN WIPED! It's worked! :D

Sure you have asked yourself this question, but I can't find it. I have rom from Spain if I install the German one and then install Android 11, I can continue using Samsung Pay

Can anyone let me know where I can download the latest beta files for India (INU) from? I'm stuck on beta 1 while beta 3 has been released in India. Not getting OTA updates.
This is for the S20 Plus LTE (SM-G985F)

    maybe you could try flashing CP (which contains modem partition) from latest beta to see if that works together with final ROM and narrow down if the problem is related to modem firmware or kernel drivers... also older CSC that contains carrier settings could help.

    but please beware, that these mixed versions could not work together so do that at your own risk.
    you are absolutely right

    Android 12 beta for the S21 series is coming out soon in Korea, they posted a banner on the community forum, i really hope there is a beta for the S20 series too, cause there is no note this year, and if they add the note 20 series then they will do the s20 too since they have the same cpu, hopefully they do a beta for us, even if it's only in specific countries like the s10 last year, If that happens, let's hope that someone can share the Update.zip with us when the beta comes out.

    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 ;)

    Cheers




    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

    How to install


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



    ADB-method:
    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.

    Frija
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/s10-plus/how-to/tool-frija-samsung-firmware-downloader-t3910594

    SamFw
    samfw.com

    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.

    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
