  • Accept the terms and conditions, and then press Join Beta.

Once you have selected, it may take a few minutes to a few hours for your device to receive the update. Make sure you have any other updates installed before.

To manually check for Android 12 beta update, go to Settings> System> Advanced> System Update.

How to sideload Android 12L Beta

Download Android 12L 2

To get started, you first need to download the necessary files to keep Android 12L on your device.

  1. You can install the Factory Image, wipe your phone and start everything from scratch.

You can download the beta OTA file from Google’s full OTA image hosting site. That site includes OTA downloads for side-loading various updates, so you need to scroll down to make sure you are downloading the file associated with your device.

Boot into Recovery mode

  • To do this, turn off your handset completely.
  • Next, hold down the Power button and the Volume Down button at the same time until you come to the boot loader page.
  • Using your volume buttons, scroll down to Recovery mode.
  • Select it by clicking the power button.
  • Alternatively, if you are already connected to the computer with ADB, you can use the Reboot Recovery command.

Navigate to ADB sideload

Using the volume buttons, scroll down to Apply update from ADB and select it with the power button.

This step is important because it is the only way to transfer the downloaded OTA file to your handset. You need to keep ADB and Fastboot tools in a convenient location.

Enter the sideload command

In Windows, make sure your command prompt is redirected to the ADB tools folder and type adb sideload. If you are on macOS or Linux, do the same in the terminal but type ./adb sideload.

Reboot your phone

Once OTA is installed, you will be taken back into recovery mode. The last step to move on to the new update is to select the Reboot Now option with your power button.
