- Google launched the Dynamic System Updates feature in Android Q beta 4.
- The new feature allows you to temporarily install a generic system image or another version of Android.
- Users can also reload their phone to return to the original version of Android.
XDAS Mishaal Rahman spotted the add-on, and it must make for a much easier way to preview new updates. More specifically, dynamic system updates will allow you to temporarily install a generic system image (GSI) provided by the device manufacturer. The GSI is essentially a pure version of Android, and is used to test Android compatibility on smartphones.
Google adds that you can also install another Android system image via this method, though it is unclear if it means personal ROMs or official previews. So how does this new process work anyway?
according to Google's Page About the topic, the GSI must be signed by Google or your device manufacturer. In addition, manufacturers should also enable dynamic system updates from their end. But Google confirmed that it was available on the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
Meet these requirements? Then you can activate the DSU function flag via & # 39; an ADB command or via Settings> System> Developer Options> Function Flags> settings_dynamic_android in a "userdebug" version of Android. You should then download the GSI for your device and execute various ADB commands. If all this is successful, you'll see a speed to restart your phone with the new update.
Don't like the update? Fortunately, you can only reload your phone to demolish it and return to your current update. Hopefully, Google works with custom ROM developers, so users can try new ROMs, but it should be a time-saving feature for developers, so they can quickly test their applications.
