Update: New S9/S9+/N9 W Pie build CRK4.



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.

Fingers crossed. Can't complain like Google does if it bricks or boot loops. Watch out for the battery drain too since it's definitely far from optimized lol
