    It possible that one day there is version 4.4.2 for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 SM-T217A

    Currently my Galaxy Tab 3 has a brick caused by wanting to give downgrade 4.4.2 to 4.2.2, have sought information everywhere in the XDA forums appears to be no quick solution, will launch sometime the firmware 4.4 .2? or conversely never appears that version for the Galaxy Tab 3 SM-T217A?

    Your tablet was updated to 4.4.2 in August 2015.
    This update was OTA.
    See here:

    You cannot downgrade thus firmware to 4.2.2 without losing network connection.
    This is because Samsung changed the file format for the EFS (where the IMEI data is stored} from 4.3 onwards.

    See if you can return to latest firmware using post #2 here:

    I see the link above but my Tablet has Android version 4.2.2 and says there is no update available. The tablet was purchased a few years ago and never used. I want to use it now but the App I want to use it with requires Android version 4.4. How can I force a upgrade? It says I can check again in 6 hours.

    It is a problem with the USA AT&T network as they only release firmware OTA and it is not released to Samsung.

    What you have to do is to find the latest firmware.
    Now carry out a Google search to see if anyone has made the file available.

    Thank you for your reply. Is this the correct file? T217AUCUAMHC_T217AATTAMHC_T217AUCUAMHC_HOME.tar.md 5

    for the AT&T Tab 3 7"?

    What is the SS_DL.dll file for?

    That is the only version on Sammobile, but I suspect it is a very old one.

    The .dll file is a carrier and can be ignored.
    Use the .tar.md5 file only.

    I have the 1147mb version. Will it upgrade the Tab 3 7" from 4.2 to 4.4?
