Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 Android 4.4.2 update, N8013 hope

By Alan Ng - Jun 1, 2014

We have some good news for those of you with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 model. Samsung has made a lot of tablet owners happy over the weekend, with a Galaxy Note 10.1 Android 4.4.2 update in Germany.

It has been a long time coming but Samsung are finally coming good with Kitkat updates for all models of their popular Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. This time, it is the Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8000 model’s moment to shine as consumers in Germany should be receiving over the air notifications to update to the latest version of Android.

If successful, the model should be running on a newer firmware of N8000XXUDNE4. Those who have the correct model can also push the update manually by either heading to device settings, or connecting the Galaxy Note 10.1 up to Samsung Kies and doing it that way.

With Germany now crossed off the list, it paves the way for Samsung to continue providing the Galaxy Note 10.1 Kitkat update in other regions.


For those that have the correct model number, let us know if you have already received an official notification to update to Kitkat on your tablet. Is anyone still waiting for the rollout to start?

For consumers outside of Germany, which country are you in and are you hopeful of Samsung providing the update to you next? – For example, the Galaxy Note N8013 model?

    Matt: Hi Robin. My actual device is the Galaxy Note 10.1 GT-N8013, but Galaxy Note wasnt an option on the last screen… I was wondering if you could tell me when the 4.4 firmware update will be available to the US market, or if it already is…
    #####: I understand that you want to know whether you can upgrade your device and how to 4.4 firmware, is that right?
    Matt: yes
    #####: Thank you for the information, I will help you.
    Matt: i was reading an article that said that the update had been released in Germany back in June.
    #####: Could you give me a few minutes while I check the information for you?
    Matt: absolutely
    #####: Thank you.
    #####: I appreciate your time and patience.
    #####: I have checked the database and as of now Android 4.1.2 is the latest update for the device.

      I have a GT-N8013 and STILL don’t have it.

  • Still waiting for 4.4.2 to come to my GT-N8013 in the USA. I’m not confident that Samsung cares about supporting “old” devices. If it happens it happens . . . I still think that Android is better than iOS but Samsung has a lot to learn from Apple about customer support.
