  • danish yakub

    Hello i got tab GT-P6800 baseband P6800XXkL2 i want to update it to the latest version please give me the link where to download it from and how to thanks :)

  • boy2k

    Thanks for your quickly response. But which ROM should I use to reflash, ICS or JB? I did twice with ICS P6800XXLQ1, but nothing changed to my 3G althought original baseband version P6800XXLPW has been used. It almost does not work properly.

    Thanks.

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    Reflash the firmware using Odin again.

  • boy2k

    My 7.7 Tab is using ICS P6800XXLQ1 with baseband P6800XXLPW version.

    I have updated to JB P6800DXMD3 successully via ODIN. Everything looks OK, but I had a stupid mistake:
    – Select the BOOTLOADER instead of PDA checkbox, so the BASEBAND has been changed. After that, 3G access is very unstable (almost cannot use 3G).

    I repeat upper step with ICS P6800XXLQ1 image, the BASEBAND has been changed to original (P6800XXLPW), but it seems that 3G modem is not working properly.
    Please help to suggest me a good solution for this issue or the way I can roll back right BASEBAND.

    Thanks in advance.

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    If it is not carrier locked, yes you can.

    Hello i bought this tab in netherland, can i upgrade it?

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    You’re always welcome. Enjoy!

  • skyler blue

    Hi guys, I want to let you know that I successfully installed the jellybean 4.1.2 and rooted my galaxy tab 7.7. I use the firmware from Philippines because my tab was bought in Saudi Arabia and still no available updates for Middle East version. Although there’s no Arabic language in my tab, I still manage to have it by rooting and installing apps like language enabler and language switcher. Just follow the instructions and have the necessary requirements in updating your tab. Any firmware will do, only problem is the language might not support it but solution is rooting your tab. My tab now is so amazing. It’s faster, responsive, battery life is improved and you can tweaks more if your tab is rooted. Thanks Droid Views, you really help a lot, I always visit your site for new updates for my tab. Try also install Xposed framework after rooting, your tab will do more you thought might not be. Thanks again.

  • http://droidviews.com/ Rakesh

    No, it is not possible.

  • RAY

    Hi! I’ve got a docomo galaxy tab plus 7.7 SC -01E ( Japanese version ) i like to convert it to the international version.

    However, I can’t guarantee that you will get German language. If you are fine with English, install it.

  • Nathaniel Gomez

Pleas Help, I can’t update my unit, our their other methods I can use to update my firmware. As of the moment my units is running Android Version 4.0.4 – Baseband Version P6800XXLPW – Build Number IMM76D.XXLQ2 and I used this firmware version P6800OXALQ2_P6800XXLQ2_HOME.tar.md5

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Yes a custom ROM can fix this issue but sometimes custom ROMs also have WiFi bug. When you install a custom ROM, it completely overwrites the existing one.Make sure that it does not have WiFi issue before installing.

    Further, you will also need to root the device. If you have not rooted it yet, see this: http://droidviews.com/2013/root-and-install-cwm-on-samsung-galaxy-tab-7-7-gt-p6800-with-android-4-1-2/

    And also, do not forget to backup your ROM before installing a custom one. Read this for more detailed explanation: http://droidviews.com/2013/things-to-do-before-and-after-installing-a-rom-troubleshooter/

  • Sebastian Linnemann

    I have one more question: Is it at all possible that a custom rom based on Jelly Bean has a fix for this or is the wifi issue too deeply embedded in the firmware?

  • Sebastian Linnemann

    No, it didn’t. Thanks anyways, I’m really glad this site exists and you’re doing such a fine job.:)

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    You are right the WiFi connectivity issue was common to Galaxy S3 and Note 2 JB 4.1.2 update. It was fixed later with newer updates. I thought it would have been fixed in P6800 version because 4.1.2 for the device has arrived much later. Wait till the new batch of fixes arrive and it’ll hopefully be fixed.

    So, the data/factory reset did not help you!

  • Sebastian Linnemann

    Thanks for the quick response. I did as you suggested, still no luck. It does however work with routers that have 802.11n. Routers using 802.11b/g can not connect, which is weird, because a friend has JB on a Galaxy S3 Mini and connects just fine. I tried many different things like changing the wifi channel on the router and disabling security.

    I did some digging around the web and found that this is a common problem with Jelly Bean on some phones and older routers. Other than that it works perfectly. Thanks a lot!! :)

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Try a data/factory reset from recovery but before doing that backup all important data on your device:

    http://droidviews.com/2013/backup-apps-contacts-logs-messages-and-settings-without-rooting-your-android-phone/

    This is how you can do it:

    Turn off device

    Press and hold volume up+power buttons together for a few seconds till the Samsung logo blinks for 2 times. Then release the power key and keep the volume up pressed till you see a menu with Android System Recovery written on the top.

    Use the volume keys to scroll up and down and power key to select option in recovery.
    Go to “wipe data/factory reset” and “wipe cache partition” options and wipe them.

    Finally reboot the device. Let me know what happens.

  • Sebastian Linnemann

    Hey, thank you very much for this article. Updated, works like a charm except for one thing: my WIFI isn’t being accepted by the device. I’ve re-entered my password several times, tried rebooting but it still won’t connect and says ‘Authentication Error occurred’. I vaguely remember this happening before but I don’t recall what I did to fix it.
    What might be the cause of this? I’m using a 7.7 I bought in Taiwan – no restrictions carrier wise – in Germany. Installed the Singapore version. Any help will be appreciated.

  • Dancer

    Thank you Rakesh!

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    DO NOT TRY THIS!!!

  • Dancer

    I also cannot switch my tab 7.7 sc-01e to the download mode. It is a locked 3G version and I see some warning in Japanese. What should I do, could you please help me. Thank you in advance!

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Yes, you will lose those stuff. Better not try it.

  • Dancer

    I have a Japanese version of updated galaxy tab 7.7 sc-01e plus. It has LTE and TV tuner pre-installed. Currently I have 4.0.2 Kernel version. If I install 4.1.2 jelly bean, will my TV tuner and LTE function? Thank you in advance!

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    All firmwares have English. Install the singapore version.

  • aniket kenkre

  • Suet Tea Pie

    I was wondering if is it okay to update my tab from honeycomb 3.2 to JB?
    btw my tabs made in vietnam and I just bought it here in saudi..

  • Chris Fuglesten

    thanks for Your help. after rooting and installing that app i now have my native Norwegian on the keyboard without all those pesky 3 party apps

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Hi Chris, thanks for noticing it. We just checked it and it was found to be an ICS firmware. The update rolled only for Asian countries but you might enable some hidden languages and select yours from the list. But to do this you will have to root your device first.

    Read this: http://droidviews.com/2013/how-to-enable-hidden-languages-on-samsung-htc-and-sony-android-devices/

  • Chris Fuglesten

    Just wondering if the Luxembourg FW is actually 4.1.2? It is alot smaller than the other 4.1.2 FW files?
    And does anyone know how to add system Languages on a P6800?

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    It’s so nice to hear it helped you.

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    We salute you, sir! We are really happy that we could help you do this.

  • syrenen

    Just to let you know that I installed the official firmware, android 4.1.2 and then rooted the tablet again. Best of both worlds! Everything’s rosy! Thank you for the help and inspiration.
    Your 70 years old pupil!

  • Harshana Samararatne

    Thanks for the cool guide… it was so easy to updrade my P6800 with the support of you all,.

  • http://droidviews.com/ Dhananjay Bhardwaj

    You must have your correct drivers installed for your device. http://www.samsung.com/hk_en/support/model/GT-P6800LSATGY-downloads

  • Janel

    Still have problem. :'( Odin doesn’t recognize my device.. Please help. :'(

  • Janel

    Which one, the XSP or MM1? Thank you so much for your help. :)

  • http://droidviews.com/ Dhananjay Bhardwaj

    Yes you can. After the upgrade, your baseband shall be updated to P6800DXMD3 (as shown in the image above).

  • http://droidviews.com/ Dhananjay Bhardwaj

    Using the Singapore variant would be the best choice.

  • Janel

    btw, my baseband version is P6800DXLP7. Can I still download any of those firmwares above? :'( Please help..

  • Janel

    I have a question.. my device was bought in Singapore, but I am now using it here in the Philippines. Which should I download? Thanks!

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    This is bootloop and it does not indicate that the installation was unsuccessful. Boot your device into recovery and “wipe data/factory reset” and “cache partition”. Hold the Volume Up+Power buttons for about 5-6 seconds, when you see the green android bot, release power key. When you enter recovery wipe two things I mentioned earlier.

  • Hippo

    Can I ask which roms version worked as mine went to a blank screen after the samsung logo.
    This is the second rom i flashed, earlier using the one from IBtimes but same thing happened.

  • http://droidviews.com/ DroidViews

    Yes, it will. Just flash it using Odin.

  • Parvez Manzoor

    Will it work with a rooted device? I have cyano 10.1, android 4.2.2, installed but would like to go back to the original firmware. Battery drain issues.
