How to Flash Android 4.2.2 XXCNC1 on Galaxy Note 8.0 WiFi GT-N5110
Galaxy Note 8.0 WiFi GT-N5110 is given every chance to excel thanks to the presence of Android 4.2.2. If this operating system gets settled on your smartphone, you’ll see your device in a new way.
The new XXCNC1 official firmware is what you’ll soon discover on the Galaxy Note 8.0 GT-N5110. The firmware we’ll use for this update came out last month for Argentina. If you wish to welcome it on your phone, make sure you’re not using a different model. If you do, you will damage it.
With the Android 4.2.2 JB on your smartphone, you’ll get, for starters, the option of long-pressing the WiFi Bluetooth icons in Quick Settings in order to be able to toggle the on/off state. Also delivered are these: a new Gallery app, low battery bug fixes and a USB debug white-list. Not to be forgotten: better Bluetooth audio streaming and a new set of sounds for wireless charging. The last addition will be a new set of download notifications.
The update can damage a phone if it’s rooted. Your device will have its system partition erased and its root access revoked. Nothing of the kind will ever happen to the handset’s internal and external SD cards. The data you keep on your phone will be saved, too.
These are the requirements you have to consider before the upgrade:
- the USB Debugging option present on your phone has to be turned on;
- no security program should be working on your smartphone, so disable the ones which are;
- turn off the notebook’s security software next;
- Windows should be the OS running on your notebook;
- download USB drivers on your laptop (here you’ll find the ones that fit your Samsung N5110);
- make as many backups as you want in order to preserve the smartphone’s data;
- a full NANDroid backup is needed, too;
- the battery of your handset has to be charged fully.
Step by step instructions
Now you can concentrate on the update steps we prepared for your Galaxy Note 8.0 Wi-Fi GT-N5110.
- Begin by looking for these: Odin v3.09 (available on this page) and the Jelly Bean 4.2.2 XXCNC1 official firmware for Argentina. After they’re downloaded on your laptop, move on by extracting each of the packages and launching Odin v3.09.exe on the notebook.
- The handset should then enter a mode whose name is Download Mode. To start the device in this mode, do the following: press and hold, at the same time, Home, Power and Volume Down. A boot message should soon come on the screen; when you are exposed to it, you need to press Volume Up and you’ll be done with this part.
- Continue with this step: find your phone’s USB cable. When you locate it, create a connection between the phone and your notebook with its help. The Odin will, once it’s found the handset, tell you that the connection’s been established by showing you a blue sign.
- This is where you will have to go on and simply take the firmware file to AP / PDA. There are certain boxes which need to be checked now. Make sure they’re the ones called Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time. After they’re both checked, you need to uncheck this box: Re-partition.
- We have come to the part where the XXCNC1 official firmware has to be installed on the Galaxy Note 8.0 GT-N5110. The flashing will be able to begin after you tap “Start“.
- You can now do other things while waiting for the installation to end. The smartphone is going to give you a message in green saying this: “Pass“.
- After you see it, the device is going to restart on its own. With the end of the flashing in sight, you should disconnect the devices from one another by making sure the USB cord is removed. Then go and tap Settings on the handset. After that, tap About Phone.
Once done with the previous tasks, feel free to give the new firmware a spin. This will tell you if keeping it is worth it or not. If it’s not, consider restoring your phone’s previous ROM.
You will need, for this, the help of the NANDroid backup file. Find it and use it. But keep in mind that this file and the action you’ll perform through it will revoke the upgrade.
