Hi guys, thanks for making this amazing rom. I'm currently using T825Y for a while. I have already use the 4.0 rom with no problem. Today i tried to go to 5.0 version and everything was okay until the fingerprint. That lead to the bootloader which I can not flashed with the following message:
<ID:0/006> Odin engine v(ID:3.1301)..
<ID:0/006> File analysis..
<ID:0/006> Total Binary size: 59 M

<ID:0/006> Removed!!

I already tried using the lastest version of Odin which is 1.13.1 and it still cannot flash. I can still boot into the room but can not use fingerprint. Hope you guys can help.
Thank you

@Kirk_O I had no problems downloading debloat list using link from 1st post. Why do you want to downgrade - I'm curious. But if 4.0 is not Pie then most likely you shouldn't.

So far everything is fine, tablet definitely works better but there's one thing...
I had to "delete" leftover Magisk application as it didn't removed itself on Magisk package name rename.

I want to install this ROM on my SM-T825 (LTE). I was previously running the ancient Nougat stock ROM, rooted. I accidentally messed up my device by incorrectly flashing something, so now I want to fix it and also upgrade my ROM in the process, so I decided to flash this ROM.

I already have TWRP on my device ... version 3.1.0-something.

I understand that I probably need to upgrade my bootloader before installing this ROM, and perhaps also upgrade TWRP. In order to perform these tasks, do I install both TWRP and the bootloader via Odin? If so, could somone point me to (1) detailed instructions for performing these two Odin steps? ... and (2) which exact version of TWRP I should install? (I know that this is the bootloader that I should install:
BL_T825XXU3CSH9_CL16530048_QB25611745_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5)

Then, I assume that I can install this ROM by following the instructions in the OP ... correct?

And I have a question about this step in those OP instructions:
Code:
4. Install ROM

Is this step a TWRP install or another Odin install? If it's an Odin step, then could someone point me again to the detailed Odin-based instructions? If it's a TWRP install, I already know how to do it.

Thank you in advance.

Sorry for the delay on this,hope you're still around
From the T820 thread......

Follow below extracted from ashyx's twrp thread....
Instructions:

Flash with ODIN using the AP slot.

1. Put your device in DOWNLOAD mode.
2. Uncheck Auto reboot.
3. Load the respective file below(twrp) into the AP slot and hit start.
4. After flashing and ODIN reports PASS immediately reboot to recovery by holding POWER + HOME + VOL DOWN.
As soon as the screen goes blank change to VOL UP whilst still holding POWER + HOME.
You should now see TWRP recovery.
Failure to implicitly comply with step 4 will result in stock recovery replacing TWRP at first boot

NOTE: Since android 5.1.1 it is necessary to enable OEM Unlock.
Settings -> Developer Options -> OEM unlocking
ENABLE OEM UNLOCK FIRST OR YOU MAY ENCOUNTER 'BLOCKED BY FRP LOCK' WHEN FLASHING.

Sometimes you have to be quite methodical,(I've been caught myself)

From here I would flash,before reboot,
Magisk
RMM bypass
Encryption /DM verity
Scripts in that order.

You will need to format data, so make sure you have backed up,
If you check the mounting in TWRP, data will probably show unmounted and you won't be able to mount it after flashing the DM verity script reboot to twrp, from the reboot menu, it should then mount.
Reboot.

Will this work with TaiChi instead of Xposed?

I'm using this ROM on my SM-T825, and it's mostly working well ... except for occasional ad hoc reboots.

I'm wondering if this instability might be a side effect of Xposed, and I'd like to know if anyone has tried this ROM with TaiChi instead of Xposed, and if so, whether it works and perhaps would be a bit more stable. I'm using TaiChi with a different ROM on a relatively new OnePlus device, and it works fine.

If no one has tried TaiChi with this ROM and device, I'll test it, myself, later this week when I have some time, and I'll then report back here with my findings.

Thank you in advance.

Well, I loaded TaiChi via Magisk, and it turns out that this prevented this ROM from booting at all on my SM-T825. It made it as far as the boot animation, and then just hung there forever. Multiple reboot attempts yielded the same result.

And even worse, I then couldn't even boot back into recovery via the normal Power/Volume-Down/Home sequence. I had to go into bootloader and then to do the following in order to get into recovery:
Code:
heimdall flash --BOOT recovery.img  --RECOVERY recovery.img
TaiChi has two modes: "Yin mode" and "Yang mode". Loading it via Magisk as I tried above is "Yang mode". Loading it from the TaiChi app alone is "Yin mode", and I haven't attempted that yet on my SM-T825 with this ROM. I'll try "Yin mode" later this week and report back here.

New rom out update to the latest firmware

T825_CTD1_TWEAKED_5.1_DB4_by_rorymc928


https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=8889791610682870340

Not tested on the T825 so do all your backups, twrp, titanium, copy internal storage and please report back with your experiences.
The T820 version is good it dirty flashed nicely over the previous rom(5.0) so that would be a good starting point.
Have fun :D

Ps I didn't update the bootloader on the T820 and was fine

As far as my part, none, samsung puts out a large change list, you might have to search around for that., security receives an update always, pretty much and I know it did with this update, but there could be others in the system. As I no longer use this tablet myself I'm not likely to notice what has changed, so good if you or any of the other users could speak up. Often as the updates get to the end of the line from Samsung its usually tidied up the bugs, not that I was aware of any.
After you flash it its helpful if you can post how it went, as the one I have here is the wifi version.
This rom as always has been built from the T825 firmware though so could be slightly different in experience.

Last update works OK

I has been using 5.0 and dirty flashed 5.1 on it last night.
It looks like fine, a little bit faster I think.
I have found nothing wrong so far.

Thank you rorymc928 for wonderful rom and last update!

    SM-T825 TWEAKED 5.1 ***** PIE ***** 20JUN2020

    T825_CTD1_TWEAKED_5.1_DB4_by_rorymc928

    Based on latest stock CTD1 firmware
    Tweaked, stable, zip aligned. SU/D
    Forced encryption disabled
    Deknoxed
    Debloated
    (GPU driver updated to latest adreno 313 rev 23.... returning soon)
    Busybox
    *****
    Magisk updated 20.4
    Matched edxposed version can be installed, or not, if preferred via magisk
    (note that edxposed is the new framework replacing xposed to allow use with pie, it requires a number of steps, but fairly simple, guide to follow )
    Edxposed installer
    Gravity box PIE pre installed

    Can be dirty flashed over CSH9 , or factory reset both will work. Recommend straight flash over PIE rom / CSH9, negligible benefit from wipe
    Requires bootloader update to a pie bootloader if not on pie already.
    (it will work without, but experience shows the bootloader update is required for the fingerprint reader to function )

    For edxposed......
    Xposed does not support android pie.
    However, we now have edxposed, a magisk module which does basically the same thing.
    Requirements are,
    1. Riru core. Go to magisk downloads and type in the search bar "riru" , near the top you'll see riru core, click the download and it will install and offer a reboot.
    2. Riru edxposed. Same search and you'll see riru edxposed further down 2 versions I chose sandhook, no reason but it works for me, same thing download it, it installs and offers reboot.
    3. Edxposed installer , almost identical to the xposed installer, already installed in the Rom, open it and you should find gravitybox pie version in the modules section it may require switching on.

    Advantage of edxposed is it passes safety net,..... I'm told.

    Gravity box pie is still in early development, so whilst it has quite a bit there it's still a way off being complete, some selections didn't function for me, but a lot did.

    Gravity box will still need to be switched on in edxposed modules.

    More mods to follow...

    Let me know how it goes

    Best flashed over updated firmware, should dirty flash but tested with factory reset, so do your backups.
    Follow instructions below....


    1. If you have xposed installed,either select it off in the app or uninstall, I only selected it off.
    2. Boot to TWRP
    3. Go to wipe,and select factory data reset.
    4. Install ROM
    5. Long boot........,
    6. Ignore the xposed force close
    7. Do your normal startup load.
    8. Magisk, if that version flashed, will function at this point.
    9. If you wish to operate xposed as well,go to the xposed installer app(matched version preinstalled),open it and install the framework,which will be systemless/system. Non recovery installation works fine. It will require reboot.
    10. On Magisk version it will pass safetynet check whilst xposed is selected off by its switch,otherwise it indicates fail. So you can swap, as needed by work perhaps, with one reboot.
    11. Use gravity box module to switch off stock battery icon.

    The T820 version is good it dirty flashed nicely over the previous rom(5.0) so that would be a good starting point.

    6
    Ok,
    Android pie version up now
    Tweaked 5.0
    I have tested bootloader requirement on the T820 , no bootloader update required.
    Based on CSH9 base, not sure yet as to backwards compatibility if you did upgrade the bootloader , though as I said it's not required
    Got myself tangled up in frp lock at one stage, suspect that was an error on my part, so make sure you have oem unlock selected, numerous dirty flashes over full pie worked fine.
    Will check a wipe then flash next.
    I see no reason it won't flash direct from bsd1 firmware or Tweaked 4.0,but make sure of your encryption state, and backup fully,and have the new bootloader at least standing by.
    Links to follow....

    SM-T825 TWEAKED 5.0 based on UK T-825 CSH9 firmware

    https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=1899786940962579651

    The T820 version has an issue with the fingerprint scanner, still debugging this.
    Recommend dirty flashing over the earlier 4.0, for the time being
    5
    Unfortunately there was an error in the last rom, leading to the encryption disable not actioning properly during install. I have built a new version which fixes the error (Tweaked 5.1b), a quick read of the T820 thread below will lay out the issue.
    Those who have flashed a Dm-Verity disable script will have already rectified the issue. If you're still on 5.0,dirty flash of the new modified rom will function now as intended without any format requirement.
