More Lollipop love is heading out to Samsung’s customers today, with the LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 the latest device to be upgraded to the latest and greatest version of Android. The Galaxy Tab S 8.4 LTE is currently getting Lollipop over in Hong Kong, two weeks after the Wi-Fi variant got its helping of the confectious update.

The update is based on Android 5.0.2 and comes with build number T705ZHU1BOD3; it is available via Samsung Kies and through our firmware section for those wishing to upgrade manually.

If you are still waiting on the update, well, you can take a look at Lollipop running on the Galaxy Tab S in the video below to make up for the wait. Oh, and once you’re done watching, do check out our post about how the software update process works for Samsung devices.

Hi. My tab (t705) keeps losing wifi passwords as soon as I turn off the wifi so I always have to re-enter the passwords. I’m currently running 4.4.2. How can I possibly fix this without having to update?

I flashed lollipop onto my t705 8.4 from here and have lost the ability to run some apps with the error “external storage is unavailable”. I have a 32gb micro SD was formatted using the device for compatibility 26gb free. (I have noticed that since the “upgrade” to lollipop the “”storage/emu…… file train is missing).
I have also lost the ability to download packs from the browser (apps/apks) with or without unknown sources selected on or off. (dolphin/chrome/imbedded). (on 4g and wifi same errors)

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right!!
After a few days of net trooling and even considering reverting to 4.4.4. I went through your site looking for a fix or alternative 5.0.2 ROMs and found that for some reason each PAGE for downloading a Samsung ROM sends you to a different version of Odin in the instructions.
For 5.0.2 first download page is Odin 3.10.6 the second download page is Odin 3.09.
I was using the v3.09 and this as far as I can tell I why I had the problem.
I factory reset then re-flashed using Odin v3.10.6 and AWESOME!!!!!!
Works better than before no longer have any issues.

Thanks

Hi! So I do not understand this! Why is it taking so long? In less than two months is issued to update to 5.02 to S Tab 8.4 LTE (SM-T705), only ten states-markets! What is the problem? At this rate it will take until Christmas! And they said that prej tablet with a premium support! Hahaha

Lollipop for Galaxy A7 India.. How can samsung be so careless on its customers.. Come on push that update button.. Come on..

Samsung leaked the info about this A7 update during FEB-15, even in May-15 the lollipop update is yet to be pushed.. Come on you fellas.. Don’t be so such a losers ..

Look at Apple .. Even from the smallest to any major update is rolled over all thru the globe in matter of minutes.. Such an marvelous job by APPLE

My Tab is rooted, is it necessary to unroot it to install the new 5.0.2 version ?
No custom recovery installed. Any issues detected on the new version, such as wifi problems?

I installed this firmware on my UAE SM-T705 from Qatar, here in the Philippines, No issues at all, I only saw a Chinese keyboard once when I was playing with the Guest mode, but that should not really bother non-Chinese people.

Because its not yet on the Sammy’s servers, therefore just flash a DBT firmware first then the OTA notifications will pop out
