Android 11 for Samsung Galaxy M01s
The One UI 3.1 update for Galaxy M01s is currently rolling out in India, and soon other regions will also get the update. So if you are a Galaxy M01s user in India, you should be receiving the update soon. Well since it is a staged rollout, there can be also some delay if you didn’t get the update in the first batch.
To check for the update manually, go to Settings > Software Update. Refresh the page and click on Download & Install to get the latest Android 11 on Galaxy M01s.
If you can’t wait for the update to arrive over the air, then you can also manually install the update using firmware. You can download the firmware from Frija tool, Samsung Firmware Downloader. If you are using one of the tools then enter your model and country code and download the firmware. Once downloaded, you can flash the firmware using Odin Tool. Then flash the Firmware on your device. If you want to do so, then I recommend you take a backup prior to diving into the process. That’s it.
