    SM-T865N korea only firmware?

    I hope some one out there can give me some good news on weather or not this tablet can accept any of the Many firmware out there
    I have the SM-T865N korea version (LTE) i believe there is only 2 firmware ever made for it.
    can i flash another country firmware to this and use odin and flash - AP CP or CSC to update the modem, and change the operating system to english ?

    Has any one done this with this model
    or have instructions to do this ?

    thanks

    Hi there

    No: that's not possible; only SM-T865N firmware is suitable for your device

    SM-T865N is the model-code; N is for which region (in this case Korea).

    International version is SM-T865F

    I took a chance i figured it out
    i did removed all my accounts from the tablet (and remove Samsung account !!). did a factory reset.
    my device was purchased in korea, making it the SM-T865N version
    factory unlocked
    came stock with this:
    checked by calling *#1234#
    AP: T865NKOU2ASL3
    CP: T865NKOU2ASL3
    CSC: T865NKOO2ASL3

    i downloaded this firmware file:

    T865XXU2ASL3_T865OLM2ASL3_XSA.zip

    from:
    [ Login above or register to see download links. ]
    this is the United Kingdom firmware

    i extracted it using 7zip.

    put my tablet in download mode,

    started ODIN, and loaded 4 files from the extracted firmware:

    AP_T865XXU2ASL3_CL17437689_QB27772178_REV00_user_l ow_ship_MULTI_CERT_meta_OS9.tar.md5
    BL_T865XXU2ASL3_CL17437689_QB27772178_REV00_user_l ow_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    CP_T865XXU2ASL3_CP14585667_CL17437689_QB27772178_R EV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    CSC_OMC_OXM_T865OXM2ASL3_CL17437689_QB27772178_REV 00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5

    *****
    i did not use:
    HOME_CSC_OMC_OXM_T865OXM2ASL3_CL17437689_QB2777217 8_REV00_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5
    wanted to do a full wipe of all my settings and apps

    i did not check any settings in ODIN.
    Clicked Start, all went ok !!

    its now an SM-T865
    the weather app works, the downloads are faster, it has not dropped the wifi. cellular works as it should.
    the only noticeable difference is with the phone app. there is no record the call button.
    it also fixed the not connecting to the cell network unless it was in 3G only ... now works in lte/4G automatically


    if i have any problems with it i will post again describing them. hopefully i never do

    Hi there

    I'm glad to ready it has worked for you...

    Understand, we never advise people to "try" flashing other model firmware because it could brick the device...

    But cool it worked, enjoy your Tablet...

    PS: could you post a screenshot, from top to bottom, of the "Software Info" page?

    Good news

    Hi,

    Thank you very much for the good news.

    I have always known it was a software issue.
    I have sent error reports to Samsung twice and got confirmation they received them.

    Would you please double check, it seems that you have flashed Australia version rather than U.K.

    Also, could you please confirm LIE/3 G issue has never replicated?

    Thanks,

    LTE works great. i live out in the country. this has better speeds than my HTC out here. its set to auto3G\ LTE, works great even with a full restart

    i checked and double checked, its the UK firmware, and yes the files inside the firmware for both the united kingdom and australia look the same
    just the CSC and HOME-CSC files differ with XXU

    and fingerprint works very fast now, basically a quick touch and go.

    Thanks for replying.

    I still believe it is the Australian version since the Product Code you mentioned is XSA (Australia).

    I am now downloading the UK version and will compare.

    Loosing the Call Recording feature saddens me, but I would like to have full LTE speed and not to beg Samsung to come with fix.
