N8000XXUDND5 – Leaked Android 4.4.2 KitKat Test Firmware for Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N8000)

Yes, you heard it right folks! The original Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, which hasn’t been updated since the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, will soon receive Android 4.4.2 KitKat treatment. The tablet was initially launched with Android 4.0.4 ICS out of the box and later updated to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and since then the tablet has not received a single Android OS upgrade. After Android 4.1.2, Google released two major Android updates: Android 4.2 and Android 4.3, both were skipped by Samsung for the Galaxy Note 10.1.

Galaxy Note 10.1 owners started to believe that Samsung might never update their device again, as the Galaxy Note II, which was released together with the Galaxy Note 10.1, did receive the Android 4.3 update. However, the day has finally arrived that Galaxy Note 10.1 owners can taste the KitKat goodness, thanks to XDA forum member izap for leaking an Android 4.4.2 test build for the Note tablet. The firmware was originally leaked in 11 parts, so we had to re-package the firmware. We are expecting Samsung to officially start rolling out the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for the Galaxy Note 10.1 in May/June.

  18. can i go back to jb after flashing this

  19. Please upload it on resumable servers

  20. I read in some forums that this version is full of bugs. Do not install WhatsApp, functions have not changed, and the Spen multiwindow is not available. the UI is the same as JB. I’ll wait because I also think that the official version will not come out in May or June.

    • No, no and no. I can see little bugs, but the user interface looks Jellybean only on the launcher. You can install Google Now Launcher and the status/notification bar will be transparent. The device is more fluid, quicker to turn on and off, and i don’t see changes in battery consumption. All services from Samsung and Google works ok.

      • My Whatsapp messenger says not compatible with my device.
        Running Kitkat 4.4.2 N8000XXUDNE1.
