    Hi, I asked this question as a guest and was encouraged to set up account so that I get better help. I just got the Note 9 and its unlocked. Its currently running Oreo with the last security patch on Sept 01 2018. I have tried to update it hoping to get Android Pie but nothing shows up. It says the best update is already installed. I will like to get Pie update on this phone that I like so much. Any help will be much appreciated.

    did you buy a 2nd hand phone or was it new in box?
    Anyways, like Mustang said, you can always flash it yourself

    Thanks and sorry for the late response. To be honest I am not too familiar with flashing but willing to try with your help.

    Okay thanks a lot. Just one question:In case something goes wrong will I be able to go back to Oreo? I followed someone's idea here to install Smart Switch and back up my Note 9 which I already did but not sure about the software itself.

    Once your on Pie you won't be able to back on Oreo.

    But meaning brick or mess up the software , no you'll be ok this is Samsung official firmware

    Hi, just to say that I was able to successfully update to Pie using Odin as you suggested.Everything is working fine right now. Thanks so much for your help. One UI makes me like my Note 9 even more. The Night Mode/Dark theme is among my favourite feature but I'm still learning the gestures. Thanks again.
