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.

Well I have a GT-N8013, I used Mobile ODIN Pro.
I unzipped the file above.
uploaded AP_N8000XXUDND5.tar.md5 to internal storage. NOT SD Card.
everything seems to work as 4.4.2 rooted too.
but now my GT-N8013 is listed as GT-N8000
and I have a round circle with a slash next to the battery.
I know it means no cell service. GT-N8013 do not have 3g
I rebooted wiped/ factory reset and the only glitch I got was signing into
Google account during initial with wifi.
