US Z Fold 3 BETA Update Links and more

I posted this as a response to a thread and thought it needed it’s own.

1. Please don’t quote this post, I will be updating it a lot and quotes don’t update
2. Keep checking this OP, I am editing and updating as I get new information
3. Tag me if something is not updated and you have new information in a response so people can have it and I will TRY and update this OP as much as I can. I do have a job, so that comes first, but I will keep an eye here and other places for updates.

Here is the link for the US Beta users (US ONLY)…

This is for Android 12 (NOT 12L) and OneUI 4.0 Beta

Be warned:

1. There are some issues with installation that SOME users have had (stops at 47% and will not continue): This does NOT brick your phone, reboot and you will remain on Android 11, there is no fix at this time for it.
Update: Looks like this happens when you have a US Phone/Firmware but a NON-US SIM – Still gathering details on this one
2. Users have reported that 120Hz refresh on OUTER screen is broken, some others state they are okay, so keep an eye on this.
Update: Looks like clearing PHONE CACHE (via bootloader) a couple times fixes this issue for some people (at least, those that have reported back)
3. Some users state that once you flash the beta, revert back to 11 and then open Samsung Members App, you will see a proper invite to the Beta.…jbmFcvWGxLEA==
