Samsung Z1 powers users have some great news today, as Tizen 22.214.171.124 Beta version Z130HDDU0COL5 becomes available. This is the second Beta release and is available as an Over the Air (OTA) update, measuring in at 258.2 MB. You need to be on Indian firmware Z130HDDU0BOK2 or later (Tizen 2.3.1) and submit your phones IMEI's at the Samsung Tizen community forum (link at the bottom).
Z1 users that have the previous Tizen 2.4 Beta release Z130HDDU0COI5 will have to rollback to Tizen 2.3.1 in order to get the update. Warning: Do not use ODIN to revert back to the previous firmware, but instead use Kies, as we have a Z1 here that does not work by trying to use ODIN.
What do you need to get started?
Your Z1 device must have the latest Z1 2.3 MR binary version, which is currently version Z130HDDU0BOK2.
For backup / restore of your data and rollback to Tizen 2.3 release, download and install KIES3 or Smart Switch

Some of the apps that work in 2.3 might not work on 2.4 (this depends on the apps compatibility between these 2 OS versions).
Facebook services & ACL might need an upgrade update to Tizen 2.4.
Joy Box stubs that were not installed in 2.3 would be removed on update to 2.4
As this is still a beta version, some of the apps that are visible on official version(2.3 BOK2) may not be visible on the store yet.
