Samsung Android Pie beta program finally goes live in Germany

The Samsung Android Pie beta program was supposed to launch on November 15 and it did, at least for South Korea and the United States. Germany was to get it as well in the first wave but it didn’t. The fact that Samsung’s support reps didn’t know what was going on only added to the confusion.

The wait is finally over for Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ owners in Germany who were looking forward to the beta. The One UI (Android Pie) beta program is now live in Germany. They can sign up for it from the Samsung Members app. Slots are limited so be quick to snap one up before they run out. Once registered, you will be able to download the update from the Software update menu in the phone’s settings.

Samsung had named Germany has one of the markets due to receive the beta in the first phase. The United States and South Korea were the other two. When the beta rolled out there on November 15, the expectation was that Germany would get it on that day as well.

It did not. That’s despite the fact that its support reps had given out the November 15 date themselves on multiple occasions. We have already opined that it’s a shame Samsung’s support staff has no clue about the Android Pie beta which caused unnecessary confusion.

Samsung hasn’t said why there was a delay but at least it has confirmed that the beta is now available in Germany. The second wave will likely begin tomorrow. Samsung UK’s website confirmed that the beta will launch there on November 20. China, Poland, Spain, France and India are also in the second wave alongside the UK.

The Android Pie update update brings a variety of new features, including the new One UI visual interface. For the complete changelog for the first beta, do check out this post. Also, keep in mind that if you want to go back to Android Oreo after installing the beta, it won’t be possible without a data wipe.

I just wonder, can the combination ROM used to change to DBT? !??

Yes, you can change from ROM to DBT firmware but this didn’t help you at all.
If you use a DBT sim card you can enter in Beta Tester program in Germany.
If you use a firmware DBT but a sim card from Romania (Vodafone, Orange, etc) You can’t enter in Beta Tester program.

If you change CSC form x to y it will still stay x. But if you insert y card it will change your csc. Tested with S8.

I wrote combination ROM. on s8 i was able to change CSC. as we have to do, sim card not inserted in the process. BUT with s9, things changed. And upper was the pointing to use a SIM from DBT to get the update.
