While the Pixel devices can be updated over-the-air (using OTA update), the procedure for non-Pixel devices is different. In this tutorial, I will offer a walkthrough on how to install Android P Beta on the Nokia 7 Plus.

Steps to sideload Android P Beta on Nokia 7 Plus

Step One

To begin with, ensure that your Nokia 7 Plus has at least 60 percent charge, and that you have taken a backup of data, including your photos, videos, contacts and more. Now, head over to nokia.com/en_int/phones/developer and login with your credentials. If you don t have one, you ll have to create your account.

Step Two

In the next step, add device details, such as IMEI, network operator and country. Agree to the terms and conditions, and then click on register. Once registered, your device model will show up on the page, with a + sign. Click on that, and then click on Download to get the ZIP file for Android P Beta. Rename it to whatever you want, say Update for instance.

Step Three

Next, download Minimal ADB and Fastboot folder from here – androidfilehost.com/?fid=457095661767103465, unzip the folder and copy it to the C drive on your computer. Also, copy the Android P Beta ZIP file in this folder.

Step Four

On your Nokia 7 Plus, head over to Settings > System > About Phone and tap on Build number for 7 times. Next, again head over to Settings > System > Developer Options and enable USB Debugging.

Step Five

Now connect your smartphone with the Windows PC using a data cable and start Command Prompt. Next, type adb devices and hit enter. If you have all the required drivers, the attached device will show up.

Step Six

Type adb reboot recovery and hit enter. Your smartphone will reboot to recovery and an icon with an exclamation mark will appear. Now, press the power button and volume up button at the same time, and you will see the menu on screen. Use volume up or volume down button to highlight the Apply update from ADB option, and click the power button to enter the menu.

Step Seven

In the command prompt, you now need to sideload the Android P Beta file. To do that, type adb sideload update.zip and hit enter. This will copy the update on the Nokia 7 Plus.

Step Eight

Next, reboot your phone by typing the command adb reboot and hit enter. The installation process will take about 10-15 minutes, after which your smartphone will reboot with the new OS.

Disclaimer: Android P Beta is meant for developers and those who want to get their early hands on the device. It is also likely to have bugs. Do not install this on a phone that you use as your daily driver. Also, if the flashing process goes wrong, it could potentially brick your device. Proceed at your own risk.
