All the brands involved have already uploaded a step-by-step guide on how to install the Android 12 public beta on a particular device. The process can only be applied if the user knows how to flash ROMs and install new ones. Also, the user needs to be careful that they aren’t installing Android 12 beta 1 on their daily driver.
