I like one UI on a tablet. The extra features are useful. I do think it could be further optimised to be smoother

It's smooth enough in deed :) But I'm definitely missing some useful tablet features like volume button rotation depending on tab`s orientation and vibration feedback. One can only hope Samsung will fix this with some update ... .

It's strange they took vibration feedback out. Im pretty sure the tab s4 did. For me it's no biggie on a tablet but should be an option

... yeh man ... and that the volume keys don't rotate together with the tab`s orientation, it's for me the first time on my third tab (1: Packard Bell= acer a500 and 2: galaxy tab S).

AOD would be nice too. No idea why they not offering it on tablets ... .

In One UI I miss a lot the launcher option to scroll left or right from home screen in a circle, endless to say so.

Volume rotating according to screen orientation should be baked in as default.
Untill then you should be able to enable it with System UI Tuner from playstore. :good::good:

Hey ppl,

I have an interesting issue here. Galaxy Tab S6 4G/LTE (SM-T865) XSA.

Can't locate any stock firmware for this model anywhere. Tried Samfirm and Frija but no luck.
Sites such as sammobile, updato and imei also return nothing. WTH?

Firmware for SM-T860 XSA is easily available but that's only the Wifi model.
Can anybody help with obtaining stock firmware for the XSA (Australia) region.

Hey mate, had the same issue here. I just flashed German firmware, just like I did on S9 before. Works perfectly, and it is always in the list of first countries to receive security patches and other system updates (via OTA)

Thanks for posting..
Flashing German (DBT) firmware is exactly what brought me here.
Doing so has lost Wifi calling (yes the tab is used for calls at times)
This is the reason I'd like to go back to the original XSA firmware (It had working Wifi calling).

Right, I see...
I couldn't find flashable XSA anywhere for download, but if I were you I'd try Kies firmware recovery (rebranded into Smart Switch?), or any other official Samsung firmware recovery method which uses your IMEI/SN to identify your device. That should be able to get you Aussie (XSA) region firmware restored onto the device.

P.s. Try New Zealand (XNZ) firmware, I wouldn't be too surprised if it works for wifi calling in Aus

Tried SmartSwitch too..
Thanks for the suggestions. I'll keep looking for a way.

But again, small chances...

How to change region

I bought a Galaxy Tab S6 LTE in the Emirates, the region is naturally xsg. I want to change to sek Ukraine. Since both regions belong to the OXM Region multi-regional firmware, I inserted the Ukrainian Vodafon SIM card and made a complete reset via the tablet menu. The region has not changed, XGS remains.
What am I doing wrong?

    How does one use the tablet as a pc screen? It's in the changelog
    I guess they lied everyone wants that feature and only the s7 has it. Even though it's in the changelog. Same thing with the s 10 lite it said it had object eraser in the camera in change log and it doesn't. Lol unreal samsung sucks. You have to buy the best and latest model every year to get the updates. Next year they do it again android oneui 4.0 will be on the next tablet and they will give it all the updates than when the s7 gets updated they will leave out all the cool features.

    I flashed with Odin normally, booted up to install Magisk Manager, patched the AP file in Magisk and flashed the magisk tar file on Odin(AP), did a factory reset afterwards and all worked out well.

    I don't think TWRP works with One UI 3.1, though I haven't tried.

    TWRP does work with Android 11 OneUI 3.1 but it's suck painful !!!

    Watch out at my other post how I did it and with which version and as explained by Techguy777 You have to keep your Tab S6 hooked to a computer with the USB-C cable if Android 11 OneUI 3.1 is already installed, after you flash TWRP and reboot manually as explained in mentalmuso's thread.

    Thanks to them both : Techguy777 and mentalmuso for the tip ! ;)

    Do you mean the official update to android 11?
    I don't believe it will come before next spring ... . Do you have any other official info??

    read this,
    which states may 2021. but plenty of time for further delays. samsung needs to cut the number of devices they make if they can not keep up with the software updates.

    Clearly you did not think before posting this reply. Using a local sim in the local country on a LTE device will have zero consequences on charges no matter the CSC. The device supports most of the LTE frequencies and WiFi is either 2.4 or 5.8 GHz as those do not change around the world. Maybe just channel numbers within the band but the band stays the same. The only country's that might be a problem is Korea and USA. Maybe read the specks of the device before making your statements. The only things I might lose is VoLTE witch most of us do not use any way and that has to be supported by your SIM card. I changed CSC to DBT and can say that I have zero problems with my device. It work exactly as it did with the XFA firmware. The only differnce is I get faster updates. And as I do not wait for OTA updates I always keep my devices updated by flashing the new firmware with HOME_CSC. You cannot say it would not work or will have consequences as I can and will say I have done it without any issues. Let the user decide what he wants to do with his device and who are you to tell him or her differently? Even secure apps like banking and pay tv apps works 100% without any issues...... Have a awesome day....

    Obviously with your narrow mind you don't know what you are talking about as you only talk about your own case without taking into account the specificities of other countries of which you know nothing, including the frequencies used in your own country, while I was not only talking about LTE...

    Because when you mention the XFA CSC, I guess you were talking about South Africa and unless I am mistaken, this country does not use the 700 MHz (B28) and 800 MHz (B20) bands while these bands would still be dedicated to analog TV while at the same time MTM uses the 900 MHz band for both 4G/3G/2G and IOT, which is not the case everywhere in the world...
    Because apart from the case of South Korea and the USA, you are also forgetting China, a country with which there have been many problems of compatibility with imported smartphones and in particular with the 800 MHz band, even if this is less true nowadays.

    After that, you are certainly lucky to have a mobile operator that doesn't use these frequencies, but that doesn't mean that this is the case everywhere.

    Even within Europe there are many disparities/differences even between different operators in the same country...

    But I was also thinking about another problem that I personally encountered since for a few months I had a Galaxy A50 and at that time there were no custom roms and I absolutely wanted to have the phone recording function which was not available by default and only available in very few countries.
    After having informed me on XDA or other sources, I did the test to install the Indian CSC with a French firmware.

    So, yes after this operation the phone recording function was working but the counterpart is that I realized on my phone bill that the phone was sending by itself SMS outside the EU and therefore they became paid... ^^
    After having put back a European CSC these problems had disappeared but the phone recording function also obviously.

    After many more tries I finally briked the A50 but fortunately I was refunded...

    On a second hand I still have my Galaxy Note 9 with which I can find regularly many good custom roms and I don't have to care about this issue anymore !
    Have a awesome day....

    Does anyone have a changelog for the latest update that came out a couple of days ago?
    Just flashed it via Odin.

    https://doc.samsungmobile.com/SM-T865/DBT/doc.html

    Settings/Software Update/last Update/link should bring you there too.
