is it possible to update from android 11 to 12 via odin (and the swiss firmware) without data-loss?
or will it result in unexpected issues?
in case someone is too lazy to download the image using Frija

Can someone who uses Google Pay check if it works? I updated to stable but it still says that my device doesn't meet security standards. Never rooted, never installed 3rd party recovery, Knox is 0x0, firmware is Samsung Official, everything unmodified and untouched.

Forget it, I just had to re-launch the app again and it fixed itself.

Is there any chance if I can change csc while making a switch from android 11 to 12? Will it be possible to use Csc file rather than home csc. I know this way my phone will reset but I can pay the price if it change my country.

Two things I notice so far by using One UI 4, I didn't do a factory reset.
- Animations are bad. Not sure if it's fps drop or shutter. But they need to be optimized.
- Overheating.
Yes, my phone starts overheating again. The last time that happened was when I got One UI 3.1. I fixed it by doing a factory reset. Now I didn't do it because I didn't want to go through all data restoring processes, Also, Samsung probably will release another one next month for making it more optimized and if I do factory reset now, the next update may mess it up again. I'm so frustrated by this situation now and I don't know what to do, honestly. Probably will use it like that at least for one more month.

I dont know if its only me or for everyone. After one UI 4 update from 3.1, i immediately got a 700mb updated with lot of fixes. No heating issues or animation issues here.

But it is possible that only Switzerland received on note20 ultra and s20 ultra android 12? In Italy s10 s20 fe and other received adroid 12 boh .......!
 
So I downloaded the file from the Google Drive above and tried to flash it.

However, ODIN was stuck at Prism.img and I thought damn, I am going to lose my data. However a search and found out that you need to restart the device and it will be at the bricked screen (Blue screen), Reconnect to ODIN and just flash the HOME CSC.

Did all of that and it worked. Phew.

I am in India and have the exonys version.
 
One more thing. When I try to check for updates, it says that it isn't supported. Pretty weird. Anybody else?

If your baseband version is still unchanged (still ZUKA from the beta), try to reflash CP file via ODIN.. only that one file.. I've had that and now it's fixed after I reflash that file..
You are correct. My baseband is Zuka. I will try to do what you suggested and revert.

Also is it advisable to reflash the entire file because it has updated in parts.

    Prerequisite to flash beta on N20U (N986B) thanks to

    dr.ketan


    You need to be on November Security patch before moving ahead.

    Dial *#1234#
    If your info is ditto same as said below then only you can flash beta 1 for N986B

    AP : N986BXXS3DUJ6
    CSC : N986BOXM3DUH5
    CP : N986BXXS3DUIF

    Also if your device is rooted/modified, it will fail. (unlocked bootloader isn't issue but firmware must be complete stock)

    TLDR instructions, thanks to pernodpepper

    0. Create backup of your device (SmartSwitch) :)
    1. Download .bin
    2. Rename update.zip
    3. Place file on SDCard
    4. Go to recovery (No odin/download mode required)
    5. Select Apply update from SDCard and choose update.zip
    6. Profit

    Detailed instructions along with multiple methods to install. Thanks to Evil_Smiley_za and @AhmedMomen

    UPDATE:

    -
    This thread will be for sharing tips and help and update.zip/.bin files (when/if available) for the OneUI 4.0 Android 12 Beta for the Galaxy Note 20 series (Unlocked/Exynos)

    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
    4. Inside this folder, holding left shift, right click the mouse and select "open command prompt here". The command prompt will open.
    5. Shutdown your phone and connect it to the pc
    6. Holding Power and volume+ and 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 and volume+ 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 use the AKG earphones.
    3. Hold down Power+VolumeUp buttons and keep pressing them until you enter recovery mode.

    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.

    If anyone knows where to get the beta 3 for sm-n986b 😄 do share with us 🙏🏼🤙🏼

    there is no Beta 3 at the moment. I'm checking multiple times a day and will share when it gets out. Looks like we will get the stable version now considering the fact that Fold also got the stable version recently.
