For past few days, Samsung has been rolling out Kitkat 4.4.2 updates for a new device every day. Few days ago, an update for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 to Kitkat 4.4.2 was released. Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition LTE (SM-P605) Kitkat 4.4.2 update has been launched less than 24 hours ago. This device is the first device in WQXGA (2560×1600) section to get a official Kitkat update. We might expect other Galaxy Note 10.1 variants to receive Kitkat 4.4.2 update soon.
The firmware build for the new Kitkat update is P605XXUCNE2 and is currently available for Nordic region(Denmark, Finland, Greenland, etc.).

If the update is available in your region, download and install it either using over-the-air or Kies. After installing the update you must match the build version to be sure that you are using the latest firmware on your device.
