The second screen thing is ment as a question at all who installed the update already and looking for this feature as well ... . In the changelog is written: “ The tablet can be used as an additional display device to a computer“

m.

That's right. I've just got the update and the "Second Screen" option is not available :\

I guesst they just copy pasted the changelog of the S7 update.

    Thx. for confirming!! I'm afraid that's sad but true :-( Just wrote a question to Samsung members support.
    m.
    Unfortunately this is the sad truth that the second screen option is not available on my S6 as well. Was looking forward to use that option.

    I use nice-lock and after module updates for Task Changer found that its now located under Home Up. Works OK but seems to be slower than the standard task changer. Like it waits a bit then realizes that it's task changer then the windows jump to the selected mode. Still the interface is better than the standard one. Also to change the keyboard skins on Keys Cafe you have to have the Theme Park module installed.

    My Tab S6 was on Multi-CSC OJM_XFA. Downloaded the BTU one now I am on OXM_BTU. Except for the German Welcome screen on first boot I have no issues. Can select English South Africa from there and setup the device just fine. Banking apps and secure TV streaming apps like DSTv we have here in SA works flawless. Going to keep my Tab S6 on BTU.... Just love the quick updates from OXM.

    Before my table showed XFA/XFA/ now its on BTU/BTU/

    Does anyone know why the third option is blank? Received my tablet from Samsung SA that way.

    Thx. for the info! Strange with the TaskChanger (and the other guy with MultiStar). That's what I get when tying to run it :-(

    Darn! Second Screen feature was the one thing I was really looking for. Putting my S6 4G out for sale now.

    Not even Wireless DEX with PC app is working. Or Laptop DeX App, only Samsung TV SmartView is working wireless.

    Also missing Samsung Internet continuity, and Samsung Notes continuity. The changelog probably has more features that arent available for S6. Really badly checked changelog.

    The Samsung members support is just a laughter :) First they told me to unable "second screen" in quick settings even though that's exact he problem that`s it's not avaible :) Then they told me to unable SmartView :) According to the changelog SmartView shouldn't even work but it does somehow but of course not as second screen.

    I think so too. I've also submitted a question and it has been answered saying that i should use the split screen function, i've replied back saying that this function (split screen) is old and i was talking about the new one (second screen). I'm still waiting for an answer.

    I guess if everybody here opened a ticket on Samsung Members they would have to answer to it officially.

    Yes, but Samsung's support should know what their company is doing or not doing otherwise the effect is very unprofessional ... .

      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.
