Don't Skip the OTA If You Feel Uncomfortable
Samsung's Galaxy S9 Android Pie roll out is moving slowly and it'll be weeks before it hits every model. If you don't want to wait for your Galaxy S9 Pie update you can manually install the software right now if you have the right device and skills.
Now that the official Galaxy S9 Pie firmware is out, select Galaxy S9 users can skip the OTA (Over-the-Air) roll out and install the software right now.
If you're feeling impatient you might be tempted to install the update right now. However, if you feel uncomfortable with any part of the process you should wait for your OTA to arrive.
Manually installing Android software upgrades can cause trouble so make sure you feel confident before you begin.
Most Galaxy S9 Android Pie updates should roll out in the first half of the year so don't force it. If you do, you might wind up with an unnecessary headache.
