You have to be on CRL3 (latest Oreo for BTU) to install the beta. Not CRLB, not CRLI, not ABCD, but CRL3. NO OTHER FW WILL UPDATE. Dual Sim variant owners can use this update as well.​

NOTE: You can't go directly from CRL3 to the latest update, you have to start with ZSA5 and apply them one by one.

These are official Samsung updates, therefore applying them won't trip Knox or void your warranty!

Instructions:

Flashing CRL3

If you're not already on CRL3, download from SamFirm and flash via Odin first. If you are already on CRL3, skip this.

Step 1
Download Odin 3.13.1. Older versions won't work.

Step 2
Download and unzip the provided firmware. You should have 5 files in the folder

Step 3
Open Odin, and browse the files to their respective places. CSC: If you want to keep your data, select the HOME_CSC file, if you want a fresh installation, go with the regular CSC

Step 4
Power off your phone, then hold Volume Down + Bixby + Power. Once you see the warning screen, you can let go. Press Volume Up to enter download mode.

Step 5
Connect your phone to the PC and press Start in Odin. Once its finished, it'll automatically restart the phone.

Applying the Update

SD card method

Download the necessary update.zip(s) for your device according to your current software version.

Step 1
Copy the update.zip file to your SD card.

Step 2
Reboot the device into Recovery mode. (Turn off the phone, then Vol Up + Bixby + Power button)

Step 3
Go to apply update from SD card.

Step 4
Install the update, and be patient.


ADB Sideloading (ADB seems to be broken, no solutions yet.)

Download the necessary update.zip(s) for your device according to your current software version.

Step 1
Download the latest ADB ZIP file (Windows), then extract it to C:\adb

Step 2
Download and install adb drivers.

Step 3
Copy the update.zip file to C:\adb (or wherever your adb.exe file is)

Step 4
Put your phone in recovery mode and select Apply update from ADB, then connect it to your PC

Step 5
Wait until your PC installs the drivers, if you're doing this for the first time.

Step 6
Open command prompt, navigate to C:\adb (or wherever your adb.exe and update.zip is)

Step 7
Issue the following command: adb devices
If you can see a device in 'sideload' mode, you can proceed to step 8, otherwise you may have some troubleshooting to do.

Step 8
Issue the following command: adb sideload update.zip

Step 9
Be patient, and enjoy your update.

NOTE: You can't go directly from CRL3 to the latest update, you have to start with ZSA5 and apply them one by one.

IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO PERFORM A FACTORY RESET IF YOU'RE UPDATING FROM CRL3. Otherwise its not necessary, but for
the most optimal experience, it is advised.

Great news. Hopefully UK will get the notice through the members app later today as well. Fingers crossed, or I'll just switch to the Indian firmware. ?

Someone need to let me know which folder the update zip can be pulled from so I can upload it to Google drive and share it. I just received the update and started to download
