I have error with build date 17 August i followed step by step with platform tools adb sideload update.zip serving just at 47%. Build date
 
It is the biggest sh..t beta I ever installed. Samsung should name it to One LAG 4.0 sorry I was a oneplus user for over 5 years and I am not used to 'something' like this. Samsung - multimillion brand. Shame.

I suspect their marketing department would stop that. But you know, beta update on a still beta OS, this is not for normal end users.

I understand this. I am really trying to deal with it. I know it is beta, just it reminds me old TouchWiz- the reason I left Samsung for few years. They do so great hardware just the software is unpolished at all. They compete with apple or oneplus and release very very late beta and still with very bad UI

I feel the same but since it's beta 1 we should give Samsung a chance and time to smooth things out. 👍 As the beta updates progress it'll get better and more stable.

Anyone with a G996B (S21+ Exy) willing to share the OTA .zip? It seems like everyone only has an S21 Ultra around here. I really wanna try the betas. It's been a while too, I feel like at least someone has to have the chance to upload the file link...

This is where I'll put the OTA /update.zip/ links for the S21 / S21P / S21U:

How To:
Rename [name].bin to [name].zip and paste it into the adb folder

Enable USB Debugging from the Developer Options
Reboot your phone
./adb start-server
Trust the computer
./adb reboot recovery
With vol-up and vol-down go to ADB Update and press the Side/Power button
./adb sideload update.zip

!!! Remove ./ if you're using Windows

Download Links:

Galaxy S21: ...
Galaxy S21 Plus: ...
Galaxy S21 Ultra: http://fota-secure-dn.ospserver.net...WSA210914132817&px-wctime=2021-09-14 13:28:17 - From gashishpetim
Help me please

Are you seriously complaining that a FIRST BETA of a so far UNRELEASED version of Android, is not fully functional?

Did you expect a release quality update? Did you even read what exactly the beta is?

The banner still doesn't pop up for me. Is there something wrong with my current software version? carrier branding?
