Anonymous, 23 Sep 2015How do I update to kitkat? I'd recommend you upgrade to KitKat on N8010,8013,P600 models first; there is an official sumsung firmware you can get (use the EUR region if in North America or any european language; they all come with English as far as I know); otherwise pick a specific language region, you should still have english and be able to switch to it
1. go to this site to download two things: http://www.sammobile.com
2. create a free account (its a safe place and there images are stable - some of the other sites I tested have long wait times or are suspicious)
3. Download the firmware image, and Odin3 for a windows pc - both can be found there
4. **** uninstall Kies3 if you have it; but you can also use it upgrade - bit more tricker and less stable than Odin; needs more tech knowedge ****
5. Run Odin and APM box load the image you downloaded (unzip it first); instructions are on the same site as well
6. Reboot with debug mode enabled and re-image with KitKat image
I downloaded 4.1.2 for NorthAmerica (original image as under About My device look for VERSION after the N8010 i.e. JXXXXX.N8010XXUCMH2 is Jelly Bean 4.1.2 for Canada for example); then applied the KitKat version.
Guess next step if to figure out how to upgrade to lillipop - I've been told Samsung is not planning to release an update for lollipop. I have actually tested whether it can host lollipop with some diagnostics software off samsung site, and IT CAN; one option I have seen used is download lollipop 5.0 for P600 (firmware is very close and almost identical) which is available for lollipop - I'd recommend you do KitKat first > phased upgrade to limit HW compatibility issues with a big bang approach.
I have problem with battery isn't working when charging. Is it suppose to replace battery? So where I can buy new battery? Is it available in the Philippines? Let me know.
Hey guys, I used to have the same problem with kies. Tried it toady and it worked! when you connect your 10.1 make sure that usb debugging mode is selected (in settings) and that the 10.1 drivers are installed on the computer (check devices and printers). that should give you the update over kies...

And it seems to run very slow, although my device is already running a bit slow b4 upgrading (no visible background apps, the system just respond very slowly. e.g. it takes 30 sec to open device "setting" interface). Any suggestions?
BTW, successful upgrading to Kitkat deletes no user apps/user data. it is not formatting.
i successfully entered the procedure of upgrading to Kitkat with Kies. fully automated. when connected with PC, Kies install the driver for me, and connect to the device. after that, Kies prompted and offered the upgrading option. reason for my upgrade is that i accidentally rooted my device, and i found not better option to "unroot" it. my device is now still running the upgrade installation automatically.
Have not been able to upgrade to kitkat. Upgrade not available from samsung. Can anyone tell me how to upgrade?
