While they are no longer supported by Samsung, the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 benefit from a ROM allowing the use of One UI 5.
If the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 have not been supported by Samsung since the beginning of 2022, this does not prevent enthusiasts from trying to bring the latest versions of One UI to it. According to XDA, One UI 5, still based on Android 13, has just been ported to Samsung’s two former flagships.
To achieve this, you must install a ROM called Noble ROM, specialized in the S9, S9 + and Note 9 and created by a developer nicknamed AlexisXDA. Its latest version, Noble ROM 3.0, therefore marks the arrival of One UI 5.0.
A slightly tinkered version
To achieve this, the developer used versions of Android 13 intended for the Galaxy Note 10 Lite and alaxy S20, modified to work as it should on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9.
While Samsung is now a reference on Android in terms of software monitoring, the fact remains that when a device is no longer monitored by the manufacturer, but remains perfectly functional, the impossibility of accessing newer versions of the interface can be a bit frustrating. That’s the whole point of these ROMs, to provide longer life to devices that shouldn’t be scrapped.
If you are interested in this ROM, it only works on versions equipped with an Exynos 9810, which is normally the case with French versions.
