Install Jelly Bean 4.2.2 XXCMH2 Official Firmware on Galaxy Note 8.0 GT-N5100
Galaxy Note 8.0 GT-N5100 is going to pass through a new process today. Your tablet shall soon receive Android 4.2.2 via an update to XXCMH2 firmware. The upgrade is only available to users living in Southeast Asia.
To not have to wait long for this update, you should follow our tutorial from now on.
Besides the usual steps that a gadget owner must follow, we are now offering these requirements to love by:
- use the tablet which is carrier + factory unlocked at the same time;
- turn on USB Debugging;
- don’t use a device that’s different to the Galaxy Note 8.0 N5100;
- create backups, using this method;
- get USB drivers for your tablet and flash them on your notebook;
- charge the tablet’s battery adequately.
How to flash XXCMH2 on your tablet
- Next item to look after: install both the Jelly Bean 4.2.2 XXCMH2 firmware (file name: N5100XXCMH2_N5100OLBCMH2_XSE.zip) and Odin tool v3.07 on your laptop, then start the guide by unzipping these zip files with the help of a dedicated tool. Pretty soon after you’ve extracted both packages, you are going to stumble upon .tar.md5 and Odin tool v3.07.exe files (among many others).
- So power the tablet off after you are done with the extraction and then enter the handset into Download Mode. The path that shall take your tablet to that mode should be paved with these instructions: simultaneously press and hold Volume Down, Home and Power, wait for Android’s logo to pop on the display and end by pressing Volume Up.
- Next: launch the Odin as Admin on your laptop and, when that’s done, plug your device to your PC. Very soon, the Odin is going to locate the tablet, so look around for either a yellow ID:COM box or for an “Added!!” message on the display; should the plugging not go like we told you to, you need to use a different USB port or install the USB drivers until the connection happens.
- Now perform the following tasks: choose “PDA“, opt for a .tar (or a .md5) file, tap “Phone“, select a MODEM file, tap “CSC“, opt for a file which has CSC in the name, click on PIT and then select a file which contains a .pit extension in the name.
- Next on the list: opt for Re-partition, F. Reset Time and Auto Reboot (only select the first box should you have chosen the file with the .pit extension in it). To put the update process into motion, you need to first tap “START” and then wait for the flashing to reach an end.
- After the flashing stage is over, you need to wait for the handset’s restarting motion. When the display shows “Pass”, you have to unplug the Galaxy Note 2 GT-N5100 from your notebook. The tablet is complete with an update that will bring it the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The XXCMH2 firmware is tucked away in your device’s “About phone“.
If by any chance you notice that your N5100 is lost in a booting animation, follow these steps to take it out of that slump: enter Recovery Mode, select “Factory reset/Wipe data“, select “Wipe cache partition” and reboot the device by opting for a key labelled “Restart“. Your tablet should now get rid of the aforementioned problem.
