    Exactly, when I have the unit with the KB down (see sketch below, this is TPCR after all..) the keys are still active. Is that the same on your unit?

    Got it! and yes annoyingly so. I end up just disconnecting the keyboard which has the unfortunate side effect that I inevitably go somewhere with just the tablet and then have need for the keyboard when it's back on my desk:mad:

    PS: The developer notes which is not the general release notes that go out to the public list at least 35 different fixes that are ARM specific.

    BTW: you might want to email Samsung about that specific issue. They are much more responsive to customer feedback than most companies at least in the windows side. I sent them a request as well for something like a "disable keyboard when reversed" option setting.

    Thanks, I was about to post on their community forum, but I can't register or log in no matter what I try (Edge, chrome, incognito, etc). I'll see if I can send an email.

    Just a heads up for those tempted to try the Alpha Builds of FireFox/ARM. Make sure that you backup prior each install of it.
    The last Friday build pretty much killed Edge and Outlook being able do anything. Only option was to reset/reload the machine.
    In FireFox defense , they are calling it Alpha at this point and this isn't the first time I've had Alpha software brick a machine:(

    Thanks for the heads-up. That's pretty severe, alpha software affecting other software packages! Glad I didn't get too adventurous yet..

    On my Go I reverse the keyboard before folding it back. That way, you don't contact the keys when you use the tablet and the KB is always with you.

    Don't know if you can do this on the GB12.

    Amazingly, you can't! It seems like the keyboard magnets on the left and right have opposite polarity, so when reversed the keyboard repels the tablet. d'Oh!

    @johnnobts TBH I prefer not to install anything I won't be using, mostly because uninstalling often leaves traces of the software, and partly because there may be unintended consequences. Most likely everything would go just fine, but I'd rather not take the risk. Maybe another member can help? Alternatively, maybe just ask shadow.tech support whether ARM is supported.
