Install Android 4.2.2 XXUANB2 on Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Lite SM-T110
Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Lite SM-T110 is going to profit from the recent release of XXUANB2. This is the firmware that we’ll use for today’s update.
Android 4.2.2 JB is the OS which the new firmware will help feature on the device. The update file is available only for the Samsung SM-T110. If you have another tablet and you want to update it to the Jelly Bean 4.2.2 with the firmware we chose, you will brick it.
Here is a full list of the countries for which the XXUANB2 official firmware was launched: Switzerland, Open Austria and Germany. You won’t be able to get the update via KIES. But you will be able to do it via OTA if you don’t opt for our guide. To use this over-the-air method, you should make sure your tablet comes equipped with a stock ROM.
An update means the arrival of many new goodies on your tablet. They’re as follows: low battery bug fixes, a new set of download notifications and a new Gallery app with faster speed during the loading of pics and so on. Another set of novelties is made up of a USB debug white-list, a new set of sounds for wireless charging and the possibility to long-press the WiFi Bluetooth icons in Quick Settings so that you can easily toggle the on/off state. The tablet’s Bluetooth audio streaming will work smoothly and you won’t experience bugs while using this option.
If the update is something you clearly want to perform, there are some things you should know about the cons. This procedure will, if the tablet’s rooted, revoke root access. The device’s system partition shall be erased in the process, too. But the important data on your Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Lite will be saved, as will the internal and external SD cards.
A detailed list of the requirements you need to perform is below:
- download the Jelly Bean 4.2.2 T110XXUANB2 for Germany, for Open Austria or for Switzerland on the laptop;
- download Odin on the same device from this page;
- make a standard backup, then a full NANDroid backup, using this dedicated tutorial;
- download USB drivers for your tablet on your laptop;
- turn USB Debugging on;
- charge the tablet;
- deactivate the security solutions on your notebook and the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Lite T110;
- use, for this guide, a notebook with Windows on it.
Step by step instructions
Following these requirements, you should take a look at the first step.
- It tells you to unzip, with WinRar or 7Zip, the two packages from above, then enter the tablet in Download Mode.
- The second part of our step is done like this: simultaneously press and hold down Volume Down and Power and, as soon as you notice a message of warning, press Volume Up.
- The Odin that you had to download on the notebook must be launched on it as an Administrator.
- After this file is finally open, you need to connect the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Lite SM-T110 to the notebook with the USB cable that ships together with the tablet.
- If, after the plugging, a yellow ID:COM box and “Added!!” arrive on the screen, the connection’s been established. Once they don’t pop up, you should re-install, on the notebook, the USB drivers or use another USB port.
- When the plugging goes as instructed, you can tap BL, opt for a file with BL in the name, tap AP, choose a file with AP in the name, tap CP, choose a file with CP in its name, tap CSC, select a file which has CSC in the name, click on PIT and choose a file containing an extension named .pit.
- The next task you need to attend to: activate some boxes. They are F. Reset Time and Auto Reboot. As soon as they’re both checked, you should do this: go to “Start” and make sure you tap it.
- The next couple of minutes will be dedicated to the installation of the new firmware on the tablet. After the flashing’s done, you need to check whether the gadget restarts. If it does, “Pass” should pop up on the touchscreen, so unplug the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 Lite SM-T110 from the laptop when that happens.
- You will then discover that the update has been performed successfully. To check the new firmware out, proceed like this: tap Settings on the tablet, then tap About Tablet.
Should the XXUANB2 not rise up to expectations, you will find that the NANDroid backup file helps. How? It retrieves the old ROM on the tablet.
