Wolffis, 10 Apr 2017Updated Galaxy Tab|Pro 10.1" from 4.4.2 to Lineage OS 7.1.1 and wow it works great. Samsung up... moreI've tried updating my 10.1 but it didn't work. Could you post how you did it or give links to well written guides to update please?
I got a small update 13mb on my galaxy tab pro 10.1 on 8/13/17. Does anyone know what it was? I tried looking on the web, no results.
I'm also fed up with the contempt Samsung treat their customers. My Tab Pro 10.1 is only a couple of years old and was not cheap but they have given up on it. Amazon are still selling it for £299!
I've just changed from a Samsung phone to a Sony running Nougat and will never go back to Samsung again. I'll look at rooting the tablet and installing a new rom but slightly nervous about bricking it,
Just got a new phone. NOT Samsung. Sick of them treating their customers with contempt. My Samsung tablet is a good piece of hardware and only 2 years old but $am$ung have given up on it. Will never buy from them again.
Updated Galaxy Tab|Pro 10.1" from 4.4.2 to Lineage OS 7.1.1 and wow it works great. Samsung updates are the worst, but thankfully 3rd parties keep the "older" devices working.
same issue as everyone else, premium hardware that had zero updates in software.
solution, google could stop bloatware and have brands go straight-up google android. alternatively, if google can figure a way to allow updating these different brands with a clean update (do away with the brand modifications), should the owner wish to do so.
i don't so much mind if the 'newer look' of the latest android version is not available, but that the older version (kitkat) is not only buggy, but that there has not been a single, all important security update since i purchased this tablet (sm-t320). my tablet is so bloated with adware i can hardly read an article or watch a show without an ad popping up. tried 3rd party security apps, but no luck thus far. will try to root and install newer version, as others have kindly suggested and linked in this thread. should not have to go there.
i also have an s6-edge phone. will not buy samsung again. as others have mentioned, apple keeps their software up to date (as per my wife's phone and tab) and for me knowing the security updates are kept current is worth the additional price of entry.
bye bye sammy
Learning that today with Google PhotoScan. Needs Android 5.0 and higher. Dang it.

iqandroid, 24 Jul 2016I can help you with upgrading your Galaxy Tab Pro to Lollipop. How? I Want to update my tab pro 10.1 to the latest software that is compatible.
I just installed Cyanogen's Lollipop 5.1.1 over a stock rooted KitKat rom and I'm simply amazed at how much smoother and better the device performs overall. I definitely recommend it to everyone.
Some apps will not run on Android 4.4.2. I may have to learn to root my 8.4 Pro or pay for the service. Samsung is now Sadsunk to me.
vice86, 29 Jun 2016Ok, so you can't update your Tab Pro to Marshmallow...so what? You can still do everything you... moreUpdated versions of android OS are needed to run apps that will not run on older versions.
Gites, 04 Jul 2016On Windows 3.11 you can do painting, text editing, etc. so why you need to update it to the la... moreTalking out your sunless orifice again? A good reason to update the android OS is to run apps that won't run on older versions.
Is the Tab Pro 8.4 WiFi definitely not being upgraded beyond Android 4.4.2 ?
Has Samsung issued an official notification of this?
samsung.youmobile.org is still showing its status as "Testing".
Thank you! I have my tab pro 10.1 and I cannot care less about updates, everything is fine!
I too love my galaxy pro 10.1 tablet. I would also like to say I'm really disappointed in samsung that there is no o's system update. I recently changed my Samsung mobile to a Sony and will now look to change my Tablet to Sony . Very dissatisfied with Samsung not upgraded the Samsung pro.
Samsung we're very quick to decide the future on the galaxy tab pro because the 8 inch and 11inch versions had very poor sales. I currently own the 11inch version and I love the thing. It's quick, reliable the only thing that let's it down is the os. App vendors are starting to stop support for android 4 downwards which is making me think twice about voiding my warranty to put a custom android version which will allow me to get to android 6. I have an old tab2 which I've tried all this rooting business on before rooting my tab pro and too anyone that knows what they are doing then I would highly recommend rooting your tab and getting a custom rom installed
