Update Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 Android 4.4.2 KitKat N8000 XXUDNE4

Samsung has begun to update Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 to Kitkat 4.4.2, beginning from Germany. The update is currently available via over the air or Kies and will update the firmware version to N8000XXUDNE4. This update include all the features available in other Samsung devices that received Kitkat update. Some of these features include adding new and improved features such as wireless printing support and full screen album art on the lock screen. This update also provides faster performance while providing a good and improved battery life.

Since the update has already started in Germany, it is expected that Samsung will release updates for other regions soon enough. But why wait for Samsung releasing the update for your region? Since the international and the Germany model of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 goes by the same model number, you can try this build if you have an international model note 10.1. When you get an update for your region, you can simply flash that update but until then try the new features and good performance provided in this German build.


Details of N8000XXUDNE4 firmware

Model: GT-N8000
Model name: GALAXY Note 10.1

  • Make sure that your that the model of your device is GT-N8000. You can confirm this by either going into Settings > About device or checking the packaging box of your mobile. Flashing wrong firmware on any android device will result in soft/hard brick and might make your device as usable as a paperweight.
  • This tutorial uses Odin, which is a executable (exe) file, to flash the firmware on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Thus you need a PC with Windows OS on it.
  • Make sure that your device has atleast 50% battery available (80% recommended).

How to Update Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 Android 4.4.2 KitKat

  • 1
    Download the official Samsung Usb drivers and install them on your PC.
  • 2
    Download and extract the Odin3 v3.09.zip on your computer. You will get a Odin3 v3.09.exe file. Run it as administrator.
  • 3
    Download the firmware file and extract it. Inside you will find N8000XXUDNE4 _N8000OXADNE4_N8000XXUDNE1.tar.md5 file.
  • 4
    In Odin, press on AP button and browse the above mentioned .tar.md5 file.
  • 5
    Power off and boot your device in Download mode by pressing and holding Volume Down + Power + Home buttons until you see a Warning! Screen. Next press Volume Up button to enter in download mode.

    Make sure that everything is correct and then begin the flashing procedure by pressing Start button. It might take sometime for the flashing process to be 100% complete and your device might reboot automatically a couple of times. Just have patience and wait for Odin to show PASS! message.
  • 9
    Once Odin shows pass message, your device will automatically reboot and you can unplug your device safely now. First boot is always the longest but eventually you will be presented with Kitkat 4.4.2 homescreen.

Incase of problems

  • Fail message- If you see a fail message instead of pass then you have encountered a problem. Firstly, double check that the firmware was specifically for your device. If so, plug out the battery of your mobile and restart Odin. Also make sure that the firmware that you downloaded isn’t corrupt. Now again try to flash your device by following this guide from step 3.
  • Stuck at setup connection- Make sure that Kies isn’t running in the background. Kies is known to interfere with Odin thus open task manager and stop Kies from there. Then again try the flashing procedure from step 3.
  • Bootloop- If your device is rebooting itself automatically after flashing the new firmware then enter into recovery mode by pressing and holding Volume Up + Home + Power button for a few seconds. Once in recovery menu, wipe caches and perform a factory reset.
  • Galaxy Note 10.1 soft brick- If you somehow managed to soft brick your device by tampering the connecting or interrupting the flashing procedure then you can search for a unbrick tutorial, if tutorial isn’t present for this device then simply request one.

    Following…as I have the N8013 model as well…I NEED the update!!!

  • Fabio Polichetti

    I’d like to know too if will work on N8013

    • RohanKandwal

      No, N8000 and N8013 are different. If you will try to flash it on different model then you will have a bricked device. I’ll try and create a tutorial for your device.

  • Reelbigschlong

    Any word on the N8013? Would this build work for the N8013 model?
