Update from 1.19.1-s to 1.20-t on beyond2lte

I wish to upgrade. Update package does not show in settings > updater
Is it because OTA is somewher else?
Do I need to upgrade manually?
Will I loose any data (along with OTP codes for even my computers)

There is no OTA upgrades except for some devices solded by Murena.

You can upgrade from “s” to “t” without dataloss by simply dirty flash the “t” build over your already installed “s”

What exactly do you mean by dirty flash? Is just flush, but without factory reset?

I also would appreciate a how-to guide on the upgrade procedure. Especially the stepps that differ from a fresh install and how to preserve the data.

  • what is the best / recommended way for a data backup and restore if necessary?
  • do I need to format any partitions or are there partitions I should not format during update?
  • do I need to flash the new recovery first or can I use the existing one and skip this step when upgrading ( compared to fresh install)
  • are there any special steps depending on the device?

I done it yesterday.
The procedure is same as normal, but you don’t factory reset. Be aware system apps may get their settings reset to defaults.

I have flashed recovery first just as precaution.

I got everything working no problems.

Now I have 2 Samsung Galaxy S10 + with e/OS 1.20-T.

It is worth to do upgrade.

What is the normal procedure? Can i do a upgrade with TWRP (which is on my phone, i installed it with odin) copy the e-1.20-t zip file in the root directory of the phone and install it with TWRP without formatting? Is this the way of doing it? i haven’t done any upgrades and i don’t know how to do it. There is not much information on this topic of upgrading from one to another android version…thanks in advance

Just do flash without factory reset.
I have zero experience with TWRP and I would not touch it myself.

thanks for the answer, you did the flash with adb sideload?

Just don’t wipe or format anything.

Not for this one,
only when the device is still updated by the vendor, you have to flash some needed partitions before system upgrade (sometimes reinstall stock-OS to get latest firmware).

The root directory of the phone is only accessible on a rooted system, or via TWRP.
Simply copy it in the “internal-storage” that will be accessible by the recovery-e.

thank you piero :grinning: so to sum up, i copy the e-1.20-t zip file to the internal-storage and then i can install the zip with TWRP without wiping or formatting. after reboot i should now have the new upgraded e-os version with my apps and data, right?

Some settings will be reverted to default.
I have not lost any data.
I did adb sideload. I didn’t know I could use e-recovery, as I have not researched subject. It definitely would be faster with update file already on device, as I don’t have reliable USB3.0 cable.

I’m sitting for the same problem with my S10e. Is there anyone who can explain in a simple way, what I have to do by using e-recovery? Thanks.

simply Download the .ZIP, reboot to recovery and apply the “update/upgrade” :

Go direct to step (8) or (9)

Si cela peut aider, voici en français et en détail comment j’ai opéré aujourd’hui pour Upgrader manuellement le Samsung galaxy S10e de S (e-1.19.1-s-20240111372761-dev-beyond0lte) vers T (e-1.20-t-20240222382228-dev-beyond0lte) [la procédure est la même pour tous les S10, seul le fichier .zip diffère]:

1 - Sauvegarder le maximum d’informations sur l’état actuel du S10e (en version S) :

2 – Télécharger le fichier de la nouvelle version du sytème /e/ (e-1.20-t-20240222382228-dev-beyond0lte.zip) depuis “https://images.ecloud.global/dev/beyond0lte/” et copier ce fichier sur la carte SD du smartphone. Remarque le nouveau e-recovery (recovery-e-1.20-t-20240222382228-dev-beyond0lte.img) est déjà inclus dans le fichier zippé “e-1.20-t-20240222382228-dev-beyond0lte.zip”, il sera mis en place en même temps que le système (il n’est donc pas nécessaire de le télécharger sur le site “https://images.ecloud.global/dev/beyond0lte/”…)

3 - Transférer le nouveau sytème /e/ (e-1.20-t-20240222382228-dev-beyond0lte.zip) avec le e-recovery actuel (recovery-e-1.19.1). Il faut auparavant vérifier que le smartphone soit bien chargée et que dans les préférences des mises à jour (dans" Paramètres/Gestionnaire de mise à jour/3 petits points en haut à droite/Préférences") “Mettre à jour la récupération” soit bien active (ON) afin de mettre à jour en même temps la nouvelle version du e-recovery…
Puis passer en mode e-recovery (il est possible de passer facilement au mode e-recovery avec le smartphone allumé, par un appui long sur le bouton “Marche/Arrêt” puis en choisissant dans le mode “Redémarrer” puis “Récupération” – Il faut que cette possibilité ait été préalablement autorisée dans les options avancées de “Paramètres/Système/Boutons/Menu Marche|Arrêt/Redémarrage avancé”).
Dans le mode e-recovery (pour naviguer, il est possible d’utiliser les touches “Volume Haut” et “Volume Bas”, et le bouton “Marche/Arrêt” pour valider) :
Choisir “Apply update”, “Choose from SDcard” et préciser le nom du fichier : " e-1.20-t-20240222382228-dev-beyond0lte.zip". Attendre d’avoir le message final "script succeeded : result was [1.000000] " puis revenir en arrière et choisir “Reboot system now” pour rebooter le système. Vérifier la version d’android dans “Paramètres”/“A propos du téléphone”.
Bonne mise Ă  jour


Thanks/Merci for your help.
I installed the upgrade to T on my S10e successfully and it seems everything works. :sweat_smile:

I did it in this way (on Linux):

  • copy upgrade.zip to /directory (which is shown by starting Terminal)
  • run on PC: adb reboot sideload (to avoid buttons pressing)
  • (Phone will start in e-recovery modus)
  • run on PC: adb devices (for check connection)
  • select in e-recovery: Apply Update, then Apply from ADB
  • run on PC: adb sideload filename.zip (note: without path)
  • Wait & wait until phone shows: success
  • Tap back to: Reboot system now

Upgraded succesfully thanks Denis2ni :smiley:

@Denis2ni Merci beaucoup pour ta description très detaillée, ca m’a bien aidé :+1:

Today I tried to dirtyflash my S10+ beyond2lte from /e/OS 1.19.1-s to 1.20-t.
In TWRP with Install. No Wipe or Format anything. But before I forgot to enable USB Debugging in /e/.
The installation ended with the error below. Same with ADB sideload.
And now my S10+ only boots in TWRP. Could it be that I’ve locked myself out now?

@Denis2ni Merci beaucoup pour ton expérience, ça démystifie et m’a très bien guidé.

Many thanks, now my S10e is ugraded to 1.20-t

Hi, @MvdL

Do you use latest TWRP ?
If not, try to update it (you can install the new version using the"install feature of the old one).

If you already have latest and cannot install /e/OS using it
You can install the recovery-e using TWRP “install” feature,
then using the recovery-e, try to install e-1.20-t with its “apply-update” feature…
