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.

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?

Hey have you updated this firmware? cause I did and the lockscreen is missing “none” cause I dont really use the swipe its kinda hassle for me and does it seem laggy specially in the app drawer? and the smartpause in the quick notification “2 fingers swipe down from the top” is semi highlighted but I turned it off shouldnt it be off? aside from that its good stable and FINALLY sidesnyc 3.0 with my galaxy s4 😀

I notice the build version and stuff is different from the countries in Europe, they have the same ones. I know it will work on a European tab S but will there be any repercussions because the build’s different? anyone from Europe flash there’s, and is it working okay?

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