    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

    You can now flash the january 2021 security update with PC Odin and selecting the HOME_CSC so it shouldn't change your CSC.

    I downloaded the German version (DBT) and I flashed it on my french tab S6 (XEF) and it works fine.

    On the other side, I bought a 512 GB Galaxy Note 9 from Hong-Kong but this phone came from Telstra (Australia) so I changed the CSC to XEF to be sure I have no trouble... :p ;)

    ... seems to be the exact opposite like the last update (January security patch), it was on Sammobile.com but not available via OTA first ...

    Only Samsung Firmware Dowloader sees the new update. But as you can see we can not download it yet. Gives a bad return 400 error. Probably still uploading to the server

    So, thread title and OP are updated :) (The link to changelog will follow when it's available on the official page. )

    First impression: fast, smooth, responsive :) Even opening the pages in Chrome and downloads seamed to be somehow faster ... .

    The recent apps screen is horrible now and TaskChanger isn't working with android 11. It looks like it's functions were moved to HomeUp but not working (yet?) :-( But we finally (!) have this simple but very nice function (when using HomeUp) of endless scrolling the home screen :) So we don't have to scroll back from left to right or the revers way.

    so it's good enough? was thinking about updating to android 10 these days (yes i am still on pie, t860) before i saw this android 11 update. any performance issues like those reported by android 11 users?

    off topic but funny, officially we only have n9600 here in hk (with snapdragon), so it must be from an international trader, although i bought a n960f too, very rare here

    What kind of performance issues ... ? Actually the opposite is the case, the tab is just flying :)

    But I start to ask my self where the second screen option is ... ? Or is it available on tab s7 only?!? I mean, tab as second display for PC.

      ... my question was an expression of a surprise, becouse CUC1 is in deed the last update but a while ago already, so maybe there is a newer one that I don't know about and he might refering to it, that's all ...

      When I answered to you at post #361, there was none for T865 but I check once again today and I discover a now update for this model T865 : may 2021 ???

      It is not indicated/published on Sammobile but you can find it with Frida with CSC DBT

      T865XXU4CUE1/T865OXM4CUE1/T865XXU4CUD1. ;)

      This is a very important security update so flash it as soon as possible !

      Can you tell if it is only a security update or there are new features as well?

      No idea at all as I own a T860 model. ^^

      But as I said this is a very important and critical security update due to buggy modem !

      Glad to hear m8 :)

      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??
      m.
      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.
