❓ Once the beta is over or that I've had enough, the regular updates list with colors and everything will be updated.
I will be flashing the US firmware to access the beta this week. As such I won't be able to edit the Updates List (RTF posts aren't editable on anything else than a mobile device). To this end I present the temporary update list. It will be kept updated like the regular one. The FAQ link has been updated with this post
You should use these sftwares. https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-tab-s/general/tool-samfirm-samsung-firmware-t2988647 (says tool is deprecated but it works better and is ad-free) https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/software/patched-odin-3-13-1-t3762572
Download and unzip all the contents of both archives.
-Phase 1: SamFirm
In Model, you enter SM-N960U . In Region, enter USC (in fact the CSC doesn't matter). Check Auto. Check Decrypt. Download. Wait. Unzip the content of the downloaded archive. You should get 6 files.
-Phase 2: Odin Backup your phone. I am not held responsible for any data loss. But if done correctly your data will be intact. Open Odin Click on BL. Navigate to where you have unzipped the Phase 1 archive. Select the file that begins with BL. Do the same for AP, CP and CSC. DO NOT USE HOME_CSC (will softbrick) or USERDATA (will wipe). Turn off your N9. Hold Bixby+Power+Volume down Press continue at the blue-green warning. Click on Start in Odin. Wait. Enjoy.
