Received OTA Android 12 with oneUI 4.0 yesterday. I'm very disappointed with this update! There is very noticable stutter while using the navigation gestures, especially the one that lifts the current app up and shows the app switcher. Also there is terrible stutter while scrolling between the quick toggle pages in the notification shade. There are some other stutters here and there, but those are the most noticable. It's like Samsung forgot to optimize some parts of the UI. The stupidest thing is that with Android 11 my phone was perfectly smooth. It's an Exynos s20+. I thought that the TouchWiz days are long gone, but...
I do not recommend this update. It's not like the phone is slow, I would say it's a bit faster, but there are noticable frame drops through out the UI.
I have the exact same phone, and have the exact same issues. I hate the update. The stutters dissappear when you drop the resolution to 720p but I'm NOT going to use a 6.7" screen on a 720p resolution. Cmon Samsung, this is ridiculous. One more awful thing they did is make the share menu same as iOS - horizontal.
I'm going back to Android 11, it worked perfectly for me.

How long the adb sideload will take to complete? Got stuck at 47%(patching system image after verification) for more than 20 mins while trying to update oneui 4 beta 1 from 3.1
Usually, it runs like a train - progressing steadily without long interruptions. Stalling like this is a strong indication of that the process has really gotten stuck. I experieced these constantly as well and found it pretty painful trying to get the updates sideloaded.

I hope you got your system upgraded eventually.

I had waited for nearly 1.5 hours before pulling the plug, Downloaded the OTA files several times after that to confirm the file is not corrupted and still flash got stuck at some point(4% to 47%). Finally used ODIN to install 11 firmware and lost much of my data in the process. Never thought I would lose data over a simple OTA update. :(

Yes, u are right. The issues disappear when u dial back the resolution to 720p but this unacceptable. I'm beginning to think Samsung do not test software extensively before releasing it.
And for information, I have two other friends with s20s and it's absolutely the same for them.

Did Samsung forgot to launch the Android 12 update for the S20 USA Snapdragon variant or what ?? USA Verizon variant got it already but not the SM-G988U1... I can't believe that S10 line up is receiving it when all the different S20 variants didn't get it at the moment ! that's nonsense !
That's the same thing I was thinking.. But they made sure to use TMB S20's for beta... No Official version love..
And seriously?? S10 get's it before all of the S20 variants??
WTH Sammy/Tmo?

It is weird that Verizon got it first. I've got the VZW S20+. Got it on Friday (I think).

I will tell you that you won't be disappointed. Things are pretty similar to before, but the performance on mine has been great. Updated sharing functions and option for resizing screenshots is also appreciated.

Latest German build runs good after a dirty Flash on Beta 1.

Is there even a big difference? Just noticed slight ui Performances

FYI: Using Heimdall you don't need to install everything from the .PIT if it is not included inside the Stock FW files

DUJ5 to 12 stable rolling out for S20+ indian users(G985F). HTTPCANARY was not on playstore, so I used another packet sniffer app to capture . Pasted the log below.

After updating to Android 12 stable via OTA, my device has begun to act strangely!! It started out with lines all across the screen, just like beta, so I set the motion smoothness to "standard" and the stutteriness/lines had gone. Phone now has a green screen while charging, and it persists while rebooting too.

Any others facing this issue and is there any way to resolve?

Edit: Left the device alone for an hour and display is reverted to normal. Hope it stays the same.!!

Before anyone tries this and loses their data, I can confirm: factory reset does nothing for these issues.
I can also confirm. Also the stutter issue is a widespread problem for all Exynos S20s after the Android 12 update. Some may not notice, but if you're used to 120Hz smooth UI, it's a big problem. Most noticable is when swiping through the quick toggles pages in the notification shade and with some navigation gestures. Switching to 720p 120Hz fixes the issue, but it's not a real fix, is it?

    -

    Eligible models:

    Exynos:

    -Galaxy S20 (SM-G980F)
    -Galaxy S20 5G (SM-G981B)
    -Galaxy S20+ (SM-G985F)

    KOREAN VARIANT:

    -Galaxy S20+ 5G (SM-G986N)
    -Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G (SM-G988N)

    Installation Methods:

    ADB-method:

    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 cable
    6. Holding power and volume up buttons, enter into recovery mode.
    7. Select "update via ADB". (scroll down using the volume buttons and select using the power button).
    8. Connect the phone to a PC using an 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


    SD-card method:

    1. Download the bin file and rename it to update.zip (by going to file options on your pc 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. Connect any USB device to your device, AKG earphones could work, then press Power+volume up buttons to get into recovery mode.
    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 installing. It will take some time.
    8. Phone will reboot by itself and load android.

    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.


    There are two methods that you can use to get into recovery mode:

    Method 1
    :
    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.

    Method 2:
    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.

    How to capture the update.bin file to share with other people:
    1. Download HTTP canary app from playstore
    2. Open HTTP Canary app
    3. Leave the app and go to the settings and Start the software update in settings by pressing "download" and don't pause it
    4. Go back to canary app and start it by pressing the little circle at the bottom right, and it will grab the link for you
    5. Copy the link and post it here if you wish.

    This will not trip knox 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 stable, IT'S a BETA.

    It's recommended to make a backup of your data before updating to the Android 12 Beta.

    Important Notes:
    -Rename the .bin file to update.zip in order to be able to flash it from recovery.

    -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.

    You will not receive OTAs again UNTIL you are on a firmware that gets released later for your original CSC, thats most likely not happening before the BETA is over.

    Small note:

    My Galaxy S20 Ultra isn't from a country that has a beta program, I manually changed the CSC to DBT, that makes me receive DBT OTA Updates but participating in the beta in the past years, needed a sim card from the country of your CSC, Meaning i need a german SIM to be able to participate, so sadly i will not be able to pull the update.zip file unfortunately, But i will try my BEST to keep the thread updated with the latest beta update.zip file (If/when someone pulls it)

    I'm going to clean up this thread. See rule 2.1 :
    2.1 Language: XDA is a worldwide community. As a result, what may be OK to say in your part of the world, may not be OK elsewhere. Please don't direct profanity, sexually explicit language or other offensive content toward Members or their work. Conversely, while reading posts from other members, remember that the word you find offensive may not be offensive to the writer. Tolerance is a two-way street.
    Here's a quick sum up of useful info in the last 2 pages I cleaned (some post were very useful, too bad they were mixte with profanity):
    BTU is not a sim, it's a region (for unbranded/unlocked/sim free devices). It's the CSC code for phones sell directly from samsung, and it gets updated first. (source)

    2 types of certifications:
    Hardware integrity​
    Software integrity​
    Software integrity : requires a build with registered fingerprints in Google's servers to pass it (and apparently the Korean beta build is there). The corresponding indicator is the "CTS profile match".
    Hardware Integrity : device specific. If you have a locked bootloader, it will pass in any case on official firmware. If not, you can pass it with some workarounds. The most common for modern phones which use hardware-backed verification is from Kdragon, which is very well explained in its github page. The corresponding indicator is the "Basic integrity".

    Is this build certified?
    Yes it is. Software integrity passes (at least) in the Korean version, user @3arthur6 confirms it with screenshots of YASNAC. (Dunno for other regions)
    Hardware verification: not clear cut. Though, in this situation, user @3arthur6 spoofed this verification with root to make his device pass the "Basic integrity" verification. (included in the YASNAC screenshot).
    Google Play certification: also passed (screenshot by @3arthur6)

    Does GPay work?
    User @3arthur6 did not have GPay working on his device, even though it's certified (because he's rooted), but asserts that GPay works in the Korean beta.
    @dr.ketan managed to have GPay working on his N20 with spoofing.

    This discussion can go on from that point, but please refrain from any rudeness/profanity/etc. This post is just a summary, it's not a definitive answer, so the discussion is still open on wether certifications work or not.
    Also, if your situation doesn't correspond to what I described here (e.g. you don't pass CTS or Google Play certification) feel free to post, as long as your post doesn't break any rule.
    Anyway, keep it civil, and hopefully everyone will get his answer.

    Thanks.

    You guys! I found my old Lycamobile simcard I used for previous beta registration, gave it a try and I think I have something for you!

    Edit: I sure hope this one fixes the app crashes, cause my Outlook and Google apps are crashing like crazy with this beta :/
    Edit2: Not sure if its a new thing, but "Optimizing apps" is now in % instead of number of apps. Apps are still crashing and GPay still not working. I'll see you guys when the next update is released, hopefully it'll be better than this one :)
    Edit3: After iinstalling update to Outlook and reinstalling Google Maps all apps are now ok! Just GPay is missing from total happiness :)
