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 ...
m.

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.

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.

    Hey Evil Smiley..

    That firmware issue was ages ago😉. The tab was so new and pre-ordered.No firmware for XSA was around at the time. Tab sold and long gone now 😀No more firmware issues 🤣🤣🤣

    Sorry for the delay. Long time since I visited the site. Was out for work. Happy you got your issues resolved. Why sell the Tab? I just love mine with the One UI3.1........
    Sold it, to upgrade to the S7+ 5G 😉

    I never rooted the S6. I rooted the hell out of my original Tab S that I used for about six years. They send the new tablet and give you a couple of weeks to return the trade-in device. That way it gives you some time to decide to keep the new tablet or not. I've made several trades with my Galaxy phones over the years using the same method.

    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.

    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.

    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.
