Update Galaxy Note 10.1 SM-P600 to Android 4.3 XXUBMJ6 Official Firmware
Galaxy Note 10.1 SM-P600 2014 version was announced this year, more exactly last month. Which also was the release day for Android 4.3 XXUBMJ6 for the UK, Poland, Bulgaria, Greece, Hungary, Slovakia, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Russia and Romania.
In October, the same stock firmware was launched for Australia, France, Open Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Singapore, Netherlands, New Zealand, UAE, Poland, Philippines, Luxembourg, Portugal and Spain.
The new and official Jelly Bean 4.3 firmware will surely affect your tablet if it’s rooted. The two main bad things that will happen are these: the root access will be revoked and the system partition will be deleted. The two main good things: no important data will be erased and your tablet’s internal and external SD cards will not be affected.
What you’ll get in return for updating your Galaxy Note 10.1 P600 is this: zero bugs, tweaks to personalize the gadget, longer battery life, an improved performance, new apps and new features. They will be able to enhance your tablet only if it’s the model we told you to use for this guide and only if the device’s running a custom ROM. Updating another variant with this tool will brick it.
The XXUBMJ6 for a part of these countries comes with the KIES logo not activated; the firmware for few locations has the KIES logo activated. In case the KIES is activated, you are able to update the tablet by Samsung KIES, too, if you don’t like using OTA (with the Software Update button under Settings menu) or this guide. You can’t use Samsung’s software when the KIES logo isn’t activated.
Welcome to the set of requirements you now have to go with:
- install, on the laptop, USB drivers compatible with the SM-P600 2014 version;
- make backups (we need you to make a full NANDroid backup as well apart from a normal one);
- remember to disable the tablet’s and laptop’s (or PC’s) security programs;
- charge your tablet’s battery;
- turn on, on your tablet, USB Debugging by launching Menu, tapping Settings, choosing Applications, opting for Development and then turning on the option you need;
- be sure to have Windows installed on your laptop or PC.
- In terms of steps, you must start with downloading the Jelly Bean 4.3 XXUBMJ6 (you must choose the appropriate region to get the compatible file) on the laptop, then visit this page for Odin 3.07 and download it on the same notebook.
- The packages must now be extracted, then you need to enter your Samsung P600 in Download Mode, which is done by pressing and holding Volume Down and Power at the same time, then having patience till either the Android logo (plus a triangle) or the Samsung one appears.
- Soon after this, you have to launch the Odin as Admin on the laptop. Which means that the next step to follow is this: plug, with the tablet’s USB cord, the gadget to the notebook and then look around for an “Added!!” message and a yellow-colored ID:COM box.
- If none of them is displayed, then you need to apply one of this options: use another USB port or resort to using another USB port.
- When the connection has finally been achieved, your next set of instructions is the following: after tapping PDA you need to opt for a file with CODE in the name, after which you should click on Phone, opt for a file that will have a MODEM in the name, then tap CSC, select a file that needs to have CSC in the name, tap PIT and right after that opt for a file which should feature a .pit extension.
- Once you finish performing those guidelines, you have to take care to also check some boxes. They are the ones with F. Reset Time, Auto Reboot and Re-partition next to them.
- Click on “Start” when you are done and the installation of the new firmware will begin and then end with the tablet restarting.
- When the gadget greets you with “Pass“, you can unplug the devices from one another. The Android 4.3 XXUBMJ6 is now located in the About Phone of your Galaxy Note 10.1 SM-P600.
You may wish to see the tablet’s previous ROM back on. If you do, the NANDroid backup file can be used to revoke the update process and restore that ROM.
