Galaxy Note 8.0 getting KitKat update in South Korea and Poland

The Galaxy Note 8.0 is taking a giant leap forward today in terms of the software - Samsung has started pushing out the KitKat update to the 8-inch Note in its home country. The update should be available over the air and via Kies at the moment, and will bump up the firmware version of the device to M500WKXUBND9. The update should include all the features and changes that were a part of the KitKat update for other Samsung devices. Highlights include faster performance, white status bar icons, improved battery life, full-screen album art on the lock screen, and wireless printing support.

Since the update is rolling out in South Korea, it shouldn’t be long before it arrives in other countries as well. We’ll be sure to let you known when that happens, though impatient folks can always head to our firmware section and download the firmware files to update manually (given the differences in the Korean variants of Samsung devices, we wouldn’t recommend flashing this one on non-Korean Galaxy Note 8.0′s.)

Update: The update is also rolling out to the international variant of the Note 8.0 in Poland, which means it shouldn’t be too long before it begins showing up in more regions.

Firmware Details:

  • • Model: SHW-M500W
  • • Model name: GALAXY Note 8.0 3G
  • • Country: Unknown
  • • Version: Android 4.4.2
  • • Changelist: N/A
  • • Product Code: ANY
  • • PDA: M500WKXUBND9
  • • CSC: M500WANYBND9

  14. Я Обновил свой GT-N5100 на kitkat 4.4.2 и получил кусок пластика. Он не способен стал выполнять свои задачи с которыми он прекрасно справлялся ранее на старой прошивке.
    Часто пишет про перегрев устройства и сворачивает все приложения. даже фото и музыка вызывают перегрев. не говоря уже про RealRacing.

    НЕ ПРОШИВАЙТЕ на китКат.
    как я считаю руки у меня прямые и не первый раз прошиваю трубки, но это нечто.
    попытка сделать откат через ODIN на 4.2.2 врубила KNOX и теперь трубка лишилась гарантии+ старая прошивка не установилась.
    KIES отказывается восстановить стандартную прошивку, 2 и 3 версия пишут, что устройство не поддерживается.
    Теперь это Г…. будет лежать до второго прихода на полке.
    Я разочарован в продукции SAMSUNG будем возвращаться к яблоку.

  15. I am very disappointed and frustrated after waiting for so more than 5 hrs, spending on cost of network data to download 2GB but it end up after 1.5GB, the zip file you sent me cannot be extract. The end archive is unknown or damage. I thought yours are safe and reliable.
