@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.

You can always install stock Rom and Debloat it yourself.

Or add those apps by Samsung store

Don't drink rum, and switch to vodka.

(I'm sorry ... I couldn't resist!) :)

On my T825, I just install the SIM card, and the phone works. Is that not working in your case?
.​
I was hoping to root my tablet t827 and install the custom t825 rom and open the phone but I was looking for it but nobody knows the solution.

and I installed the rum here but the phone feature didn't work

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.
Further details in the other thread below....

Hi @rorymc928 !
I'll try tomorrow your new build (5.1b) and also try to flash it via a TWRP I ported myself (which will not be available until I test it and works).
I have a question; is it possible to port One UI 2.1 to this beauty of tablet? (like from the Tab S4 or Tab S6 ?)
Because I think in my opinion it would be great to have an updated Android 10 ROM on this tablet, since you're actually the only maintainer for this tablet that actually updates his ROM frequently, and your ROMs are the greatest thing the Tab S3 series have right now!.
I saw on another thread on XDA how to do that and I would like to know your opinion: https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/general/how-to-port-samsung-rom-to-samsung-t3481114
Thanks for replying us!. :)

Thanks, it's good to get a test on the T825.
I'll have a look at the thread, I think Samsung is making it harder in a lot of respects, I use a tab s6 now and just briefly attempted a ROM for it with no success.

I have an SM-T825 that is flashed with a recent (but not latest) version of this ROM. I want to flash the latest, but before I do, I have a question:

It says the following in the OP: "Best flashed over updated firmware". Does this mean that it's best to be flashed over the bootloader that is referenced in the OP?

If so, that is a dead link. Is there a better location to get this latest bootloader now?

Once I find this bootloader software, could someone point me to instructions for flashing this bootloader via a linux box? Would this have to be done via heimdall, with the following command, perhaps? ...

heimdall flash --BOOTLOADER /path/to/bootloader.bin

Thank you very much in advance.

If you're running a pie version at the moment, it will be that simple. However if you're on oreo it will need a bootloader update at least.

The longer story,
When flashing over oreo with the first pie rom ,all seemed fine but it became apparent that the fingerprint reader did not function, flashing the oreo bootloader fixed that. I've just uploaded the latest oreo bootloader .

I suspect the earlier pie bootloader would be fine,if thats what your on, if not you should use the latest.

Thank you for explaining. This makes sense. I'll just flash the latest ROM (after a nandroid backup, of course!), and if it works, I'm home free. If not, I'll restore my OS and then try flashing this oreo bootloader before re-flashing the ROM.

And thank you for all your work on this ROM!

The question arose
Is it possible to roll back to 7 android on this firmware?
Do I need to flash the old bootloader? And which version with 7 android, because I only see from June 2018 and this is most likely 8 android.

Not having tried, I'd suggest you'd need an earlier bootloader to get it to boot, often rolling the bootloader back that far is not possible.
All the roms are available with a search on android file host,

Thanks for the tweaked rom.

Before i flash i want to ask will the tablet show warning about custom rom at startup and will i be required to press power button every time the tab is started or rebooted ?

    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....

    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
