Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N8000) getting KitKat update in Germany


GALAXY_Note_10.1_Product_Image_1

The Galaxy Note 10.1 is taking a giant leap forward today in terms of the software – Samsung has started pushing out the KitKat update to the 10.1-inch Note in Germany. 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 N8000XXUDNE4. 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 Germany, 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

    Hopefully, it will work properly with my Note 10.1 labeled as GT-8010. It became labeled as GT-8013 when I installed CM 10.2.

      Pro :
      - faster and smoother performances
      - widget on lock screen is now available (like in s4)
      - personally, I like new ui of the writing recognitions. It’s easier to correct mistakes
      - multiple users setting

      cons :
      - shortcut to screen shoot is missing. The only way I found to do this now is using s-pen (push s-pen button and tap in the screen for few seconds)

      The overall experience is good. However it feels awkward at the moment (doesn’t mean bad) because the position of notification and back-home-task menu is different.

        Yeah, the separated notification and navigation bars are not as useful as they were on 4.1 Jellybean. I haven’t updated my N8000 yet, are you experiencing any problems with this official ROM ?? I read here and on another site comments from users complaining about wifi issues, have you faced such a problem ??

        Thnx in advance.

          I have been using ROM for the past 3 days and I have not experienced any problems with it including wifi. My tab is now faster than before and the experience is much better than when it was 4.1.2. Another addition is muiltiuser functionality including a restricted account where you can set which applications you want to be accessed. In the restricted account you can also disable data connection.

            On my updated N8000 with the added muiltisuer functionality, I was able to set up a restricted account where I enabled access to applications for kids and restricted access to data. Now my son can use my tablet to access educational applications for children without me worrying about other websites he might accidentally log on to.

          All fuctioning normally. Just noticed the cascade mode on multi tasking is lost. But I’ve never used it anyway. Always use the splitted view even on jelly bean.

            I don’t know, so sorry. But why don’t you flash German rom instead? It’s practically not so different. Typically, we in germany is the first to receive updates (based on my experience with my S4). We already received 2 updates of 4.4.2 in S4 meanwhile some other countries haven’t received the second.

        -The multi-window function in 4.4.2 is very poor. We cannot open many windows like we were doing in 4.1.2
        -Photo Editor is missing from update. When I tried to download it from Samsung Apps it always shows “Network not available” error although I can access anything from internet at the same time

          It’s a matter of preference I think. I always used splitted view because the cascade view is uncomfortable to me. I like it now better than before

      Some Automateit app triggers get disabled in the new update. Further I cannot get my automateit rules to work on the new 4.4.2. Also miss cascade mode and hate the new huge notification window. The small notification window on 4.1.2 was apt for a tablet. Regretting the upgrade. Further I understand that there is no way to downgrade, if you installed official OTA.

    -Multi window. With 4.1.2 we can resize the app size in cascade view Opening many windows at a time. But in this only two apps can be opened. Its very bad……

    Sammobile please check this… We need that view back from 4.1.2 again. Please

      Stay calm. The upgrade is gradual for each country. If your N8000 is unlocked, with no vínvulo operator can use the above ROM (I do not know if applications will be in German). Otherwise, wait to arrive in your country. If version 4.1.2 arrived there, surely the 4.4.2 also arrive.
