How to flash XXUCMG1 on your device

  1. For starters, you have to download the XXUCMG1 Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean stock firmware (the Spain variant, the Slovakian one, the Serbian one, the Croatian one and the Finland version) and Odin tool on the laptop.
  2. The Galaxy Note 10.1 N8010 will have to be powered off so that you can smoothly have it enter this: Download Mode. Begin to press + hold Volume Down + Power simultaneously, then when the Android logo is on the display you should press Volume Up to reach the mode your tablet should be in.
  3. Then take the Odin tool .exe from the Odin 3.07 archive; run it as Admin like this: right-click on odin.exe and tap “Run as Administrator” by looking for this option in Context Menu.
  4. After you’ve plugged the Note 10.1 GT-N8010 to your notebook, you have to first wait until you spot either a COM port number in yellow or “Added!!” on the display; this will tell you that the plugging turned out to be successful.
  5. You should flash the USB drivers again or use a different USB port in case the process did not turn out OK. Next: tap “PDA“, choose a .tar.md5 file, click on “Phone“, opt for a MODEM file, tap “CSC“, choose a CSC file, tap “PIT” and opt for a .pit file (if you’ve chosen this file, you will have to check “Re-partition” later on).
  6. Now check F. Reset Time and Auto Reboot, as well as the Re-partition option we previously mentioned. Tap “Start” to ensure that the installation of the update firmware can begin in the next couple of seconds.
  7. Then, after the flashing stops, you will experience the rebooting of your gadget soon (you need to look, on the touchscreen, for a “Pass” message in a background whose color is green).
  8. As soon as you spot those, you should unplug the tablet from your PC. “About tablet” is now filled with the XXUCMG1 Jelly Bean 4.1.2 official firmware. Take advantage of it right now!

Once you see that your N8010 WiFi refuses to get out of boot animation, you have to: enter the Recovery Mode again and then choose “Factory Reset/Wipe Data“. Next, you should opt for “Wipe Cache Partition” and after that select the “Restart” button.
