    Question Canadian GT-N8010

    Hi,

    I'm sure this has been asked before, but can I upgrade my Canadian GT-N8010 tablet from 4.1.2 to 4.4.2 using a non-Canadian firmware?
    Unfortunately there is no 4.4.2 firmware for the Canadian product.

    If I can use a non-Canadian firmware, which is the best firmware to use (UK?) and what will I notice from a usability and locale standpoint?
    Will I be able to reinstall all of my purchased Google apps?

    Thanks.

    Hi there

    Why would you want to do this?

    I want to upgrade from 4.1.2 to 4.4.2 because some apps will no longer run or install on the older Android OS.
    I want to use a non-Canadian firmware since I can't find a Canadian version of 4.4.2.

    If the above is possible, will I notice a difference from a usability and\or locale standpoint? Will I be able to reinstall all of my purchased Google apps?
    Oh, and would the UK version of 4.4.2 be the closest match or does it matter?

    Thanks.

    Just a follow up on my questions...

    - Can I use a non-Canadian 4.4.2 firmware (like UK) on my Canadian system?
    - If I do use a non-Canadian firmware on my Canadian system, will I notice a difference from usability and\or locale standpoint?
    - Will I be able to reinstall all of my purchased Google apps?
    - Would the UK version of 4.4.2 be the closest match or does it matter?

    Hi there

    I'm not sure if you can install/flash the UK-version of the firmware to your device

    Can't advise you in this one, sorry...
