* thermonuclear war, or your getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please

* before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
* you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.

On T865 LTE + TWRP + Android 11 doesn't boot. Tried everything nothing works
That's because this twrp is meant for 867 model you need the twrp. Here's what your looking for we already know it works people have used it. You have to stay plugged into pc after Odin flashing to boot into recovery on android 11 one ui. If you need anything let me know

No I used proper TWRP for T865 not this. I found no other place to ask how to make it work on android 11 and not get into bootloop

Idk, you cant test and see
Maybe I will, I found the restore on the S10 lite now. The way you said to slide the continue to restore made me unsure. I used to do everything and try it on devices but I quit doing that over the last 2 years because unfortunately almost everything doesn't work anymore. I thought if I swiped to restore it might start trying to flash my system without seeing my back ups and wipe my system out. Why after 5 years has it changed? Naturally I would assume it's not seeing my backups not that it's hidden. Than I read about people hard bricking their phones or tablets doing things that should work and it makes me nervous now. If I could buy a new flagship every year I wouldn't care I would try everything but the tab S6, S10 lite, and now poco F3 are the most expensive devices I've owned. So I'm not rolling in money.

My thoughts about this twrp is you made it for a mobile data unit not wifi. Well on the tab a they used the lte source code and it ruined the EFS partition. Because it's meant for lte and it screws up Bluetooth and EFS. Aside from that it did work as long as you didn't wipe EFS. So now I would have to risk my tab S6 to try. If it just bootloops I don't care

Ok I solved this with modified vbmeta_disabled in case somebody has the same problem.
So what twrp did you use for the LTE 865? There's the official 3.6.0 I'm hoping you were able to use that with vb meta disabled file. Could you explain in detail exactly what twrp from where and how you added the vb meta file or what you did. I would really appreciate it. If I can use the official with a vb meta disabled I would be happy thanks. Tell me how you used the vb meta file to

I really think your the only one that could make a twrp for the S6 860 wifi model because the other developer has deleted everything his files and his GitHub files with device tree and stuff. It's money is what it is developers rush out to be the first to make twrp and kernels for a top device in hopes of making money and then when it doesn't work out they just stop. That's what your doing to is unlocking bootloader's for money and than you want to make a twrp that way there's a reason to pay you to unlock the bootloader. If someone ask for ETAs or certain features it's always I do this for me and I do it for free and I don't want those features or I don't have the time there's the donations link. It's not for free it's for money that's why you guys make for devices you don't even own.

Stop this useless off topics, If I worked on something there are two reasons. because its interesting for me.
Or someone paid for my time that I spend on interesting or challenging stuff.
I have a life too, I can say NO to you at some point.
So you cant push me to work on something even if you paid me or donated.
