How to Update Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7105T to Android 4.3 DVUEMK2
With the help of DVUEMK2, your Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7105T 4G will get Android 4.3 and what this OS has to offer for this model. Australia is the country which is fully supported by the new firmware. To get it on your handset, all you have to do is follow our update guide.
The new features, tweaks and so on which will be yours if you upgrade the Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7105T are these: no dangerous bugs, a new list of features as well as new apps, a great performance via a whole array of tweaks and various options, enhanced battery life thanks to numerous great tweaks and many varied customization options. But they come at a price: if your smartphone is rooted, the update is going to erase system partition and revoke root access. The internal and external SD cards will not be affected; neither will the handset’s important data.
The update file was launched this month and it has an activated KIES logo. What this means: you can update your handset to the Android 4.3 via Samsung’s KIES, too. But only in case there’s a stock ROM on your smartphone. Which shouldn’t be a different model because it will be bricked as a consequence.
For the time being, you should do the following:
- create both a standard backup (to save the important data on your phone) and a full NANDroid one for later use;
- USB Debugging must be enabled on the smartphone;
- the notebook must have USB drivers for the handset installed on it;
- turn off the security programs that come with the handset and the notebook;
- Windows should be the only OS running on your laptop;
- take time to fully charge the phone’s battery.
Step by step instructions
- You have to get it on now with this first step: download Odin from here and the Jelly Bean 4.3 DVUEMK2 (here you will locate the Australia version) on your laptop and afterwards unzip them.
- For this extraction, we suggest WinRar or WinZip, so choose one of them and use it, then be sure to enter your Samsung GT-N7105T in Download Mode by pressing and holding, at the same time, Volume Down, Home and Power which will make the display show a screen of warning prompting you to press Volume Up.
- Once the phone is in the Download Mode, you should create a connection between it and your notebook with the USB cord belonging to the smartphone.
- As soon as the Odin finds the handset and the connection is created, you will come across a yellow ID:COM box and a message that should be this one: “Added!!“. If the plugging did not go as planned, you need to use another USB port or flash the USB one more time on your laptop.
- For the next step, make sure you tap BL, select, afterwards, a file with BL in the name, click on AP next, opt for a file with AP in the name, tap CP, then opt for a file with CP in its name, tap CSC afterwards, choose a file containing CSC in the name, tap PIT and choose, at the end, a file with an extension called .pit.
- Move on to this step next: once you check Auto Reboot, Re-partition and F. Reset Time, you need to tap “Start” and then wait for the flashing of the DVUEMK2 to begin.
- The whole installation will take a couple of minutes to finish. After you’ve waited for a bit, the Galaxy Note 2 4G N7105T will do the following: after it reboots on its own, you will notice a “Pass” message written in green.
- You will be asked to unplug your devices from each other and look for the new firmware like this: tap Settings and after that click on About Phone. This is it: your smartphone can now make the most out of the Android 4.3.
If you’ve reached the conclusion that it can’t, feel free to use the NANDroid backup file to restore the previous ROM on your smartphone. After doing this, you will see that the update is revoked.
