The Samsung’s new One UI is based on Android 9 Pie. The company introduced the One UI at the Samsung Developer’s Conference 2018. The new Samsung UI comes with some notable changes, and the UI is available for download on Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9 Plus and Note 9 (beta).
If you have the devices mentioned above and are confused why your device has not received the update yet, it’s because the update is not available for download in all the countries. But you don’t need to play the waiting game as you can still install the One UI manually, as long as you have a compatible model.
How to install the One UI manually on your Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus:
We’ll be downloading the German version of the One UI by using SamFirm or the SamMobile website, the size of the package is approximately 4.3GB. There are different update firmware for different phones. So, try to download the right firmware for your phone.
After downloading the firmware, unzip it into a folder. Five files will be extracted from the firmware- AP, BL, CP, CSC, and HOME_CSC. Make sure you’ve downloaded the Odin software before continuing with the procedure. Launch Odin and load AP, BL, and CP in the respective slots. CSC will be chosen if you want to clean the device and HOME_CSC will be chosen if you want to keep the data.
Reboot your device in download mode and connect it to the PC with a USB cable. Once, all this is done, make sure that only Auto Reboot and F Reset Time have a check mark in the Options tab. And then, click on the ‘Start’ button. This process takes some time. If Odin shows ‘PASS’, you have successfully installed the One UI in your phone.
