OXM CSC so non carrier specific users should be fine.

Installation:

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.


Also, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the amazing community here, starting from the ever so patient moderators, up to the brave people who let me experiment on their machines to get the OTA links during this beta program (both S9, S9+ and even Note 9). A very special thanks goes out of course to the great @Wishmasterflo who was the first one to let me mess around with multiple computers he owns until we got it just right and established a certain solution to give you guys all the updates almost instantly. Kudos to him, and to all you who in the course of the last few months came here to help out other people!

We may convert this thread to a general S9 Pie discussion if it's okay with the mods, now that the beta is over.

Thank you all, and enjoy the great update Samsung blessed us with this Christmas!

Instructions:

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.

Many people have reported that on ZRKA, they're unable to apply new updates from SD because of SD card mounting errors.

First try formatting your card on your phone, and try again. If that fails, use adb sideloading.


Edit: The most effective way I came across for this issue is to actually use a PC (or a phone utility) to format the SD Card with FAT32, then try the update.


ADB Sideloading

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 BRJ6 to the latest update, you have to start with ZRKA and apply them one by one.

IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO PERFORM A FACTORY RESET IF YOU'RE UPDATING FROM BRJ6 (Basically after a main system version upgrade). Otherwise its not necessary, but for
the most optimal performance and battery life, it is advised.

So, this is my service provider SW ver. : EUR/EUR,DBT/DBT
Am I valid for the upcoming beta?
I run the latest Samsung Members 2.4.70.11, but no registration to the upcoming beta exists. Is there something I should do, or just wait for both registration and update to beta?

Possible Exynos issues ofc is possible, but is there any official statement yet?

I am wondering... Using the latest Samsung Members app, do you see the notification to enroll in the Pie beta?
Because there is nothing like this in mine...
