I've installed the Korean image on a us SM-T970 and noticed some weird stuff.
1. Microsoft RDP has a bunch of buttons that are in Korean
2. The "Enhanced Processing"in the quick buttons doesn't seem to do anything
3. The tablet does seem to handle RAM and open programs much better

So far everything else seems to work fine.

I've read all the commnents but I want to be sure I'm understanding it right. You flashed the Korean user T870 on your US version? If so would that mean I can install in on my T-Mobile version of SM-T978U. It wouldn't have the carrier bloat and disabled features like calls and texts on other devices missing from settings?
I did not flash the Korean user data to my T870. What I did was flash the rom, but used Home CSC so that all my personal and regional settings remain. Samsung images are multi CSC. Meaning as long as you have the same model, you can flash an official rom from any region and still retain you data and settings.
As for carrier versions, it's similar. You can flash a rom from another carrier as long as you have the same base model and use Home_CSC.

You will have to change your devices CSC from TMB to an unlocked model like XAS and wipe it to remove bloat.
You could lose certain carrier specific features if you do this.

The SM-T970 I have is just straight up Wifi no carrier so no problems there
Wondering If I wipe and clean install unlocked xas version is there any down side to it like will it trip Knox ?
Does xas version install a cleaner less bloated version or will I'll just be able to uninstall what ever I want coz its unlocked ?

No downside. Official images will not trip Knox. I have XAS and there is no bloat.

Where you getting the XAS I don't see that one for my T970 ?
If I just install the MULTI CSC instead of Home will that wipe it clean of bloat ?
Minor mistake... mine is XAR, not XAS. Too many Sammy devices in the house.
Anyway. XAR is the CSC code for the WiFi version of the T870.
If you use CMC_OMC instead of HOME_CSC_OMC, it will wipe your device.

Yeah, I noticed that as well. Not sure why the gave the Wi-Fi versions XAR as a CSC, but they are in fact just Wi-Fi.
Maybe that CSC is unrestricted, not feature blocks?


Ok so I went ahead and flashed the below Cellular South version with XAR along with the non Home CSC Multi and it wiped my device but it still installed all the same crappy bloatware?
Where did I go wrong just want to get rid of all the bloatware is all ?

What is your current CSC? Also, where did you buy your tab? I bought mine direct from Samsung.

It's XAR and I also bought my tab direct from Samsung I live in US
What do you think ?

Ok... so I'm now confused... what bloat are you getting beyond the typical Samsung apps? During initial setup, I see the option to install things like Office and such, but you can deselect them right there and they won't be installed.

Those can all be deleted. You can chose to not install Netflix and Spotify during initial setup. The Google stuff installs automatically, but it can be deleted afterwards.

Edit:
I'll rerun a setup and take pics to show you what I'm talking about.

Well crap... I ran into an issue during install. I wanted to do this clean so I used Odin to reinstall the latest build (full wipe using CSC_OMC file) and Odin quit halfway through writing out the Super partitions... soft bricked. :mad:
I was able to recover, but this time I was NOT given the option to install some of the bloatware. :cautious:
But I was able to go in afterwards and uninstall most of it. All Office products except OneDrive can be uninstalled.
Spotify and Google Play Music can be uninstalled. Netflix can only be disabled... which I find odd since on the previous install I was given the option to skip it. I must have answered something differently during the setup process as that screen didn't appear this time.

Thanks again for the help I went and wiped it again and re-flashed non home CSC then followed your advice and just uninstalled pretty much everything it didn't give me the option not to install Youtube but disabling it seemed to kind of uninstalled it anyways its gone including the icon . Now that I've used Odin a few times seems the app is super easy to use. So what do you think will happen after get everything setup just right and then go to flash the next update if I use the Home CSC to keep my settings will it re-install all the bloatware again ?

Just let it update automatically. Your settings remain. If you want to go manual, just make sure you use Home_CSC every time to keep your stuff.

    After rolling out the Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update to most of its high-end smartphones, Samsung has started rolling out the Android 11 update to the Galaxy Tab S7 and the Galaxy Tab S7+. However, the new update brings along One UI 3.1 instead of One UI 3.0, which is a surprise. The company’s flagship tablets have become the first devices to receive the One UI 3.1 update.
    The Galaxy Tab S7 (SM-T875) LTE, Galaxy Tab S7+ LTE (SM-T975N), and the Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G (SM-T976N) are now receiving the Android 11-based One UI 3.1 update in South Korea. The new software update comes with firmware versions T875NKOU1BUA8, T975NKOU1BUA8, and T976NKOU1BUA8, respectively, for the three tablets. The file size of the new update is over 2.4GB, so we advise you to download it using Wi-Fi.

    The new update brings many Android 11 features, including one-time permissions, chat bubbles, a dedicated media playback widget, a conversations section in the notifications shade, and improved Digital Wellbeing. It also brings One UI 3.1 features such as the refreshed UI design, improved stock apps, Private Share, the ability to remove GPS location data from images while sharing, improved performance, improved memory allocation, more lock screen widgets, and video background for calls.
    If you are a Galaxy Tab S7 or a Galaxy Tab S7+ user in South Korea, and if you haven’t received the update yet, you can check for it manually by navigating to Settings » Software update and tapping on Download and install. It is likely that Samsung will roll out One UI 3.1 to the Galaxy Tab S7 series devices in other markets and to other Galaxy smartphones and tablets globally over the next few months.

    Maybe you could post a simple how to flash using the HOME_CSC option for people that are unsure to follow ?

    T970XXU1BUA8_T970OXM1BUA9_KOO.ZIP

    For anyone that didn't know you can grab this above Korea version of One UI 3.1 at
    this below link

    www.sammobile.com/samsung/galaxy-tab-s7/firmware/SM-T970/KOO/download/T970XXU1BUA8/1172840/
    Pretty straight forward.
    Use patched Odin 3.13B
    Put your tablet into Download mode
    Select the files shown in the image and flash away.
    Your data will not be wiped.

    installed the latest Android 11 firmware on mY Tab S7 T875. Rooted with magisk. All well. Really like the updated module Theme Park of goodlock labs.
    Since there is no Galaxy Theme Store on Samsung Tablets and substratum doesnt support Android 11

    I have a netflix HD Subscription working well and rooted with magisk and Widevine remains L1
