Wireless DeX

DeX wouldn't connect to my Chromecast on the TV. Besides the Chromecast connection isn't the problem at all, with DeX only ... .

If you guys play around with this new interesting feature, would be cool, if you could share your experiences here with us.

How do I have to install the update on a rooted device with twrp running without loosing data and settings?
Actual release is SM-T865_OXM_DBT_QQ_0008 R52M90P57BE DBT/DBT

The only thing I know exactly is to use userdata instead of CSC

Do I have to flash BL and AP section?
Do I have to create a AP-File with magisk?

boot to bootloader install update via odin (disable reboot in odin)

BL
AP
CP
USERDATA


reboot to bootloader install twrp via odin (disable reboot in odin)
install twrp in AP-section

reboot to twrp
install magisk in twrp

edit:
should I update twrp to latest release first?

Chromecast is not Miracast compatible. Wireless Dex only works on Miracast compatible devices.

If you have a Windows 10 computer, does the Windows 10 Dex application work so that Dex appears in a window on the Windows 10 desktop?

Yes, I`ve win 10, so I'll definitely check that out! Is the application you are talking about from Samsung and available in galaxy store?

You need to access this page from a computer, or put your tab browser in desktop mode to see the download links. They also have the Dex computer app for Mac's too.

https://www.samsung.com/us/explore/dex/

Here are the download links;

Windows
https://www.samsung.com/global/download/SamsungDeXWin
Mac
https://www.samsung.com/global/download/SamsungDeXMac

Wireless Dex is fine for slinging to an HDTV, but I sure hope the computer Dex app works since it would be way better than Microsoft's Phone app experience which doesn't support apps from the Tab S6.

I asked my mother (79 :) ) to check it out on her brand new tab s7 plus and note 9. On the tab it's not working but it does on note 9 ... .

Looks like a 'slow' rollout as Sammobile only shows just a few countries so far. Hopefully they are baking a few more things into the update, like maybe enabling Dex for PC. <fingers-crossed>

    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.
