Download Samsung Galaxy S9 Firmware Android Pie (Stock ROM Official)
The first thing you need to make sure while downloading the Firmware is to find the correct model number of your Samsung Galaxy S9. Then, based on your device number, look for the appropriate firmware build for your phone. You can find the firmware for your device by exploring the Galaxy S9 Stock Firmware list, given below.
Cross-compatibility of Firmware
You can install any firmware for the model no. SM-G960U on your device as it doesn’t matter as long as the model no. remains same. It would fully work on your AT&T Galaxy S9.
Yes, this means that you can install a Verizon/T-Mobile S9 firmware on your AT&T S9, and vice versa. The only difference will be the extra apps (read: bloatware) that each carrier may out in or not put in, in which case, you are always better off AT&T firmware.
Galaxy S9 Firmware Download
The other firmware files are as per your device’s model no., as usual, so no code-finding-in-firmware-name-exercise required for models other than SM-G960U (US model).
Note: You can install SM-G960U1 firmware on an SM-G960U device, but not vice-versa. Also, Canadian Galaxy S9+ comes with model no. SM-G960W, not U.

Now that you have Samsung Galaxy S9 Android Pie Firmware downloaded on your PC, the next thing you need to do is to create a backup of your contacts, pictures, videos, songs and everything that is important in your smartphone. You can also use Samsung Kies to create backups.
2. Install Samsung USB Drivers
Now install the Samsung USB driver on your PC from here.
3. Download Odin
Also, download Samsung Odin software on your PC by visiting the link.
4. Extract Firmware & Software
Once you have downloaded all the required firmware and software, the next step is to extract the firmware file. You can use WinRAR or other similar software. Extract the Odin software as well.
5. Boot into Download Mode
Disconnect your phone if it is connected to your PC and boot into the download mode. For this, power off your device, wait for 6 to 7 seconds after the screen goes off. Press and hold the “Volume down + Home + Power” buttons simultaneously. This will prompt you to a Warning screen. Now press the “Volume Up” button in order to continue to download mode.
6. Open Odin on your PC
Now double click on the extracted Odin file to open it. Do just as said, in order to avoid any problems.
7. Connect your Phone to PC
Now connect your device with your laptop using a USB cable. The Odin will recognize your device and you will see “Added” message in the log box.
8. Load the Firmware File
Once the Odin software recognizes your mobile device, the next thing you need to do is to load the firmware file into it. Click the AP button in Odin and select the .tar.md5 file from above. When you load files, Odin checks the md5 of firmware file, which takes time. So, simply wait until that’s done and the firmware file is loaded. Don’t worry if Odin gets unresponsive for a while, it’s normal. Binary size will also show up in Odin.
9. Uncheck the Re-partition Checkbox
Now you need to click on the options tab, in order to make sure that the Re-partition checkbox is not selected. Make sure to verify everything and once you do, click the Start button on Odin to start flashing the firmware on your device.
This will take some time but after you get a PASS message, your device will automatically restart and you will land on the completely new interface of the Android Pie with some really amazing features. Now you have successfully installed latest Android Pie stock firmware on your Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus.
