1. Get yourself rooted, follow instructions on this thread HERE
2. Download rom module zip that corresponds to the firmware you're on. RK1 is the first build.
3. Flash the Rom module zip, in magisk manager, follow prompts and select with volume buttons. I can't guarantee installation from flashing in TWRP.

Hey Mentalmuso,

Just got a T860 and I'd used your Weta ROM on my S9+ until you quit updating it. Best ROM I'd ever used. With this ROM being on a Snapdragon, I want to be absolutely sure that I don't screw up rooting it, etc. obviously. Is there anything different that I need to be aware of other than what's in your notes? A key for me will be if you plan at this point to update it at least once a month and when Android 10 hits. As with the S9+ I'll make a donation but know in the long run it would be a drop in the bucket.

I'll be updating until the tab s7 is in my hands..
It's not a full rom as such, but a magisk module. Regardless of being snapdragon or exynos Samsung device, the rooting methods are the same, it's just the yearly iterations of devices change a lot as Samsung tries to squirm it's way around being a treble device.

Do you have any plans on adding customization options for quick settings, notifications, status bar and so on?

@Mentalmuso do you have any plan to prepare a stock flashable SM-T865 rom?

I'm not sure what you mean. But I don't do full system roms anymore, just magisk roms. There is no point in 2-3gb of system files in a rom. I see the merit for upgrading firmware but Odin does that spectacularly, and then simply overlaying the modified files over a stock system.

I am asking this because i have a variant of Tab S6 (SM-T867) which has 4G but no phone call feature. I think it is probably a software restriction. I want to flash a SM-T865 Rom via TWRP to see if i can enable the feature or not.

Every firmware has the calling and messaging apps in it. It'll be the csc that is r probably restricting things.

Is it possible for ya to make a way for us on Verizon and other carriers to get the phone and messages apps back? I got the 4g version to not have to rely on tethering to my phone but I feel shafted that I lost features.

    Sounds like your on the same page as me. Android pie OneUi is hands down my favorite Rom I have it on my S7 edge so theres no need for custom rom. Just a permissive kernel, Twrp, Root, and viper. I wouldn't be buying the tablet if I couldn't get root and viper. I have the S2 tab right now and its still pretty good but it needs a few things. Quick charge, and stereo speakers on each side. The S6 has that and from what Ive heard they sound the best anyones heard on a tablet. So im looking forward to it.

    Yeah the speakers are surprisingly good

    Thank you I been following along on the telegram thread a little I just was getting confused. Have you guys got viper4android 2.3.4 to work on android 10 on the tablet? Im wanting to move up to 10 when I get it but right now viper 2.7.1 is the only one that 'll work on android 10 on my phone. Viper is a huge deal I could never go without it now lol. I love 2.3.4 version much better unless theres a way to get the 2.7.1 style apk to work with 2.3.4 driver.

    Also, I do believe I can get the 2.3.4.0 driver to work with the updated UI. I'll mess around with it because I'm with you on the quality being superior on the older drivers
