Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 gets the Lollipop update

The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is finally making the jump to the latest version of Android, a month after its larger counterpart received the update. Lollipop is now rolling out to the Wi-Fi variant of the tablet, and like most of the updates released by Samsung, this one is based on Android 5.0.2. That’s rather disappointing considering the test build we previewed back in February ago had the same OS version, so we’re certainly hoping Samsung will move to update its devices to Android 5.1 and newer iterations of Lollipop sooner rather than later.

Coming back to the Galaxy Tab S 8.4, it’s the same routine as before. The update will be available over the air, through Samsung Kies, and also through our firmware section for those who aren’t keen on waiting. Do check out Lollipop in action on the tablet in the video below, and remember to be patient as these updates always go out in a phased manner and can take time to show up on your particular device.

Country Korea

Este tuto lo hago para hacer downgrade de Android 5.0.2 a lolipod a 4.4 kitkat para corregir el problema de reinicio y fallas en la pantalla cuando la batería está a menos del 40% de carga:
1. Hacer backup de todas las app de nuestro equipo con titanium backup (para los perdidos esta app la encontramos en la playstore pero deberemos ser root para usarla, para más referencia busquen en san Google: como hacer backup por lotes con titanium backup) de todas las app PERO OJO SOLO LAS APP QUE HEMOS INSTALADO NOSOTROS NUNCA RESPALDEMOS LAS APP DEL SISTEMA O LAS QUE VENIAN DE SERIE CON LA TABLET.
Esto puede generar errores y se nos quedara en el logo de Samsung al reiniciar.

2. En la siguiente página vamos a registrarnos para poder conseguir el stock firmware de nuestro equipo, allí aparecen por país:

Es necesario registrarse en la página para poder descargar el SO

3. Después de descargar el SO 4.4 4 kitkat correspondiente a nuestro país seguimos el tuto que aparece en la parte baja de la página donde se descargó el archivo.

3.1. Extraemos el unzip donde está el firmware. Si al extraer el archivo nos aparece así:
Tendremos que borrarle la última parte .md5 no se preocupen si dice que el archivo puede dañarse o quedar inservible, no pasa nada si no hacemos esto ODIN no podrá leerlo.
3.2. Buscamos en san Google ODIN v3.10.7 también puede servir una versión anterior no importa y lo descargamos OJO CON LOS VIRUS QUE PUEDEN VENIR CON ESTOS PROGRAMAS. ABRIMOS EL PROGRAMA ODIN
3.3. Apagamos la Tablet y la ponemos en modo download para ello presionamos al tiempo HOME + POWER + BOLUMEN ABAJO por unos 20 segundos.
3.4. Conectamos la Tablet y esperamos que aparezca una señal azul en un recuadro de ODIN .
3.5. Agregamos el firmware que descomprimimos en la casilla AP/PDA también funciona la casilla BL chuleamos el recuadro correspondiente ASEGURESE QUE LA CASILLA RE-PARTITION NO ESTE CHULEADA
3.6. Le damos start y esperamos a que la casilla se ponga en verde y se reinicie la Tablet. Esperamos 1 minuto para que encienda si no enciende y se nos queda en el logo de Samsung no se alarme pasamos al siguiente punto.

4. si se queda en logotipo samsung ,hay que quitar la bateria y encender en modo recovery .(como no podemos quitar la batería debemos presionar HOME + POWER + BOLUMEN ABAJO por unos 20 segundos apenas se apague presionamos y mantenemos apretado simultáneamente los botones de VOLUMEN ARRIBA + BOTON CENTRAL + BOTON DE APAGADO/ENCENDIDO. luego bajamas hasta WIPEDATA/FACTORY RESET y damos OK y luego bajamos hasta OK –DELETE ALL USER DATA y OK
y por ultimo reboot system now OK
esperamos que se reinicia y despues de unos 30 segundos todo OK. –

People should check Kies more than the OTA. after waiting ages for the OTA, I just decided to connect to Kies to jus back up software before manually flashing. Turns out Android 5 is available through Kies already! Lol. So getting it downloaded and installed right now! OTA really is the slowest way! Lol

Panama? Seriously? I have nothing against Panama. I lived there from 1977-1980 (Back when it still had a Panama Canal Zone) but how many Tab S’ have they sold there to get the lollipop update before the US? Come on! When Verizon beats them to an update for an older phone…really?

Will the tablet still be the same and 100% usable in the US? or will there be a catch flashing a korean FW?
