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.

...oh, I.c., strange at least it's Europa (even EU ;-) ). So your origin CSC is BeNeLux or Netherlands, I guess. Are you rooted? Because in this case you will not receive an OTA update of course.

No, no root or unlock. Just a stock device. I did disable some apps, but nothing of importance.
Oh, and i have the 8gb ram version of the t860 tablet.
Tried proxying through germany, didnt help. Still on September patch

The update info finally arrived, it was the security patch only, as expected ... . Interesting, release date is the 13th of January but it was published on sammoile.com in die 10th ... .
How ever, I hope the next update will bring android 11, so I can adjust the thread title :)

Australian firmware with nov. 2021 security patches for the T860 was available for a long time now but may be your OTA got a problem.

Your can download it from sammobile or with Frija (will be much faster download) and then you can flash it with PC Odin (why should you wait after OTA ???).

Just use HOME-CSC just to be sure your data won't be erased.


EDit : I made a mistake with the link so here the nov. update Australia T860 :


Sorry

I'm just wondering if this january (T865XXS4BUA1) update for the T865 could be use on a T860 if we don't use the CP file and with PC Odin as I suspect the january update for the T860 won't be available before one month or more... Bootloader may also be a problem... or not.

I may test it myself but I have to go to hospital today or within a few days and I want to keep my Tab S6 working during my "journey"... ^^

I doubt, it will work ... . A guy tryed to flash the T865 FW on his tab with mobile date only no call function like T865 and failed.

I wish you the best for the “journey“ stay healthy !
m.

Thanks

Nothing to do with Covid but just and probably my third Arterial Surgeries.

I don't need phone calls with my T860 Wifi Tab S6 but if data sharing (hotspot) with my Galaxy Note 9 works should be already fine. :giggle:

I'll have a week or 2 to think about it but I wish Samsung will release theT860 january firmware before. ;)

... it was just meant like an example for fishing T865 FW on an other tab s6 model.
m.

LOL

As I had to wait a few days or weeks for different medical exams before my surgery I was about to test the T865 firmware on my T860 but I just discovered today the existence of the January update for the T860 ! (y)


Download in progress... :p

    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 ! ;)

    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.
