Update Galaxy S9/S9+ to Android 10 Beta 3 OTA Update
The simplest way to update your Exynos Galaxy S9 devices would be by using the Samsung Members app. But, if you are in a region where this update has not yet been rolled out, say out of Asia or Europe, you can download the OTA zip from above and then install it either by using the Stock Recovery Method or ADB Sideload method.
- Take a note that your device is an Exynos S9/S9+ variant.
- Enable OEM Unlock, and USB Debugging from Developer Options on your device just in case. To do so, go to Settings > Developer Options > enable USB Debugging from there.
- Setup ADB and Fastboot on Windows, Mac OS, Linux or Chrome OS.
Stock Recovery Method (OTA update zip installation)
- For this method to follow, you should have a Samsung Galaxy S9/S9 Plus. In case you are using the ASII Software version on your device then you do not have to follow this step.
- Download ASII ZSJ8 OTA update zip from above. Then Rename it as
update.zipand move this file to the PC or whichever system you are using i.e. Mac or Linux.
- Make sure to have a copy of this update zip on the storage of your device or SD Card. Now reboot the Samsung Galaxy S9 series device into Recovery Mode.
- For this, simply turn off your device completely and then press and hold down the Power + Volume Up + Bixby buttons altogether.
- When you have entered the stock recovery mode, make use of the volume buttons to navigate and choose – “apply update from SD card“.
- Go to the update zip file (ASII -> ZSJ8 ) in the SD card and press the power button to choose it.
- The Update will now begin. It may take some while just be patient until then. Now that you have finished the step, repeat the same for the further OTA Updates like beta 2, beta 3, and more
Use the below command to reboot into Recovery Mode –
adb reboot recovery
In case you do not have an SD card option, you can use the ADB Sideload method which has been described below.
ADB Sideload Method
Follow the step number from 1 to 3 and then choose ‘Apply Update from ADB’ in the fourth step.
- Assuming that you have followed steps 1 to 3 from the above method, we will get to the next part.
- Now connect your Android device to the PC and open a terminal window or command prompt on it where you have installed the OTA Zip. For this, just type cmd on the search bar and then press the Enter key.
- Navigate to Device Recovery and choose ‘Apply Updates from ADB.
- Now go to the location where you have saved the OTA Zip file on the PC. Now flash the OTA by entering the below command – Just remember to put the actual filename in-between ‘< >’, and also the exact name with its proper extension. Do not use ‘< >’ in the actual command.
adb sideload <filename>.zip
For Mac users –
“./adb sideload <filename>.zip’
For Linux –
“Sudo ADB sideload <filename>.zip”
- Confirm your action and be patient until the upgrade is completed.
- Lastly, just reboot your device.
