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.



my friend these roms are really nice but i install these roms on my samsung t827 tablet without any problems but somehow the phone is not active can you be at this place ..? :confused: THANK YOU..

@rorymc928 Hello.
I don't know if you can, but could you please make a version without Xposed and Busybox please ? Because by installing edXposed modules to get Xposed working I made my tab bootloop, which I had unfortunately to wipe again and install again your rom...
Now it works fine but I think I'll disable edXposed installer asap...

Not sure what your issue is,
xposed no longer works since android pie, edxposed is not actually installed in the Rom, it is installed by the user if required, through magisk , the app edxposed installer allows the installation of edxposed modules only, but requires the magisk modules to have been installed.
Edxposed will not have caused your bootloop, if however you have installed modules through it that are not compatible with your device, hardware or software it can lead to a bootloop, there is a caution for that in the edxposed installer app, it needs, as with all root operations, to be used wisely. Check what modules you are using.
Busybox is required by a lot of tools used by users that root their devices it's included for convenience,it is only used when required by other apps as needed.
Hope this helps

Ps of you do install a module that leads to bootloop, they reside in system /data /app. So if you haven't made a backup, you can use the twrp file explorer in recovery, find the last installed module by name and delete it from there, and reboot. Use this procedure with caution.

Hi.
For the moment my tab seems fine, and no, I didn't install any modules appart Riru Core and Riru edXposed.
In the Github page of Riru edXposed there is a newer version than in Magisk, should I flash it by downloading it and then installing with Magisk ? (same for Riru Core)
Also, they say the newer versions doesn't support anymore your edXposed installer, and only work with edXposed Manager; should I disable the edXposed installer and install the edXposed Manager ?
And in TWRP, how can I delete the modules in case it makes again the same problem ? I know the file manager, but I was never able to delete things from the recovery, or I don't know how to.
Your help is very appreciated, thanks! :)

Hi again!.
First of all I can really confirm that the Riru - edXposed module made my tab bootloop the other time, it was clearly that.
When I entered in TWRP data didn't want to mount, and even after rebooting once again, into TWRP, I couldn't find the Magisk modules in /data in TWRP.

If riru edxposed is operating fine for others why should it make your tablet bootloop? There has to be another cause, something individual to your tablet.
If your data is not mounting in TWRP you need to format data, note, not wipe. Then reboot twrp from the twrp menu. Data should then mount.

In not guaranteeing an edxposed module is causing your reboot, but it is one possible cause, I've encountered that before with a module. Rather than wipe and reinstall, as that's a long process, removing the last module in TWRP was the solution for me. You will not be able to do that until you can mount data.

You need to first tackle mounting the data, that requires a format of the data on twrp as listed above, that I believe will solve your problems.

@rorymc928 thank you very much for work.
I've flashed TWRP yesterday and then your ROM.
I'm still setting it up. (gravity box, camera, GPS,.....?)
Until now I think it's fine for me.
I'm a bit sad that Excel, Chrome and quite a lot of Samsung's stuff is still in it, but it's much less than in stock already.

Debloating can be a contentious issue, useful apps for some are a waste for others, the debloat here has to be a compromise,but is extensive, you could remove Excel yourself. As for chrome it was necessary as it's used for the initial setup process if the tablet is wiped before flashing. Although I've found having more than one browser useful, occasionally websites, particularly with forms may require it. Once your tablet is set up you could uninstall that yourself also, I usually use titanium backup for that type of job, but any root uninstaller should work.

    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.

    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
    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.
