    Samsung Galaxy Beta Programme goes live in UK


    HugoQueiriga

    If you have been waiting for Samsung to update your Samsung Galaxy S7/ S7 Edge to the latest Nougat goodness, then you are in luck, sort of. Samsung has started the Nougat Beta programme in the UK for their flagship devices.

    So how do you get access to this program? You can do this by going to the Galaxy Apps store on your phone - if like me you disabled it, then make sure you enable it again and update the app - then search for Galaxy beta program. Install the app because you will need to use it to register for the program.

    Samsung intends to run this program from 9/11/16 to mid December in the UK, you should expect the latest Samsung UX based on Android 7.0 (Nougat). The programme is only open to Galaxy S7 / Galaxy S7 Edge and both devices have to be unlocked and network free versions. The Olympic and Batman editions are not supported.

    To register for the programme you need to open the app and click the settings menu - the three vertical dots - and press the Registration option in the popup menu, this will take you to the Terms of Service for the programme, agree to it and it will register you with the Beta programme. You will need to have a Samsung account to be able to take part.

    If you want to leave the program you can open the app again and click on the settings menu and choose deregister, this will remove you from the beta programme. As with any beta software, this will likely have bugs, so if you are updating your main driver ensure you backup your device first.

    The instructions say that to download the beta software you will need to go to Settings - About device - Download updates manually to be able to download the software. It seems this hasn't gone live yet, once it has we will have more information to share.

    Let us know how you get on with the program and share your feedback with the rest of the community here at MoDaCo.

    • Hi. When rooting Huawei Mate 8 I had to use "format data" option to remove encryption (it wouldn't take my PIN). Then I flashed magisk and when I rebooted back to system, I found out that there's only 1 basic theme available, HWthemes folder empty, downloaded themes not working (despite "theme applied" notification, not even after reboot). My goldmagazine theme is gone, and the setting "Homescreen style" shows a placeholder drawing where normally my theme picture would show. Does anybody have experience with this sort of special effect? What am I supposed to do to bring my themes back?
    • Is there a safe workaround to format the sd card as internal on the Moto X4 Amazon version?
    • The Mac users who want to transfer the OLM data files into PST file format on the their Macintosh PC then they can take help of Mailvita OLM to PST Converter for Mac OS which surely help in migrating the data safely and accurately.

    • Hello everyone. I need some guidance to avoid doing something irreversible. I had to resort to flashing twrp via SRKtools because all of the official versions for this model failed to work (stuck at 'bootloader unlocked' warning). Is this because they are all for EMUI>=4.1 while mine is 4.0? And why exactly does it matter? I would expect twrp to list compatible emui version(s) if it is so crucial. The srk one worked but asked for decryption password which I don't have. I want to flash magisk. Now, I read somewhere that I should deactivate dm-verity first, for example by flashing no-verity-opt-encrypt zip, also read flashing magisk takes care of it. Would it be a good idea to wipe-format /data, reboot to twrp, flash magisk and reboot to system? What can go wrong? Please shed some insight.
