The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a monstrous device with a 10.1-inch display with a pixel resolution of 800 x 1280 pixels bringing out the pixel density of around 149 PPI. The device was launched in the last quarter of 2012 running JellyBean 4.1 out-of-the-box which is the bundled OS at that time on Samsung devices. Similar to other Samsung devices, the Note 10.1 has also been released in many variants and released all over the world partnered with various telecom carriers. The Note 10.1 GT-N8020 is the LTE variant in the series which offers a Quad-band LTE support to the users.

Not many updates were rolled to the Note 10.1 devices, except for the few minor OS updates which fixed the Samsung bugs. But right after the International Galaxy Note 10.1 got Android 4.4.2 KitKat update in the form of XUDNE4 firmware, the GT-N8020 users also got the chance to taste the KitKat on their devices. The XUDNE4 firmware build is the most recent update on the Galaxy Note 10.1 from Samsung and it brings Android 4.4.2 KitKat Update alongside some minor bug fixes that come with the Samsung Customization.

The update to the KitKat OS is the cheerful moment among the Note 10.1 folks who had almost lost their hopes in getting an Official KitKat update on their devices. The Note 10.1 device has lost its way after the numerous Android devices launched in the following years of its release. Most companies tend to launch more and more models with the latest hardware and software and many of them neglected the previous models offering little support to the development of old releases. But Samsung once again proved its loyalty to the customers by rolling the KitKat update to its Note 10.1 customers.

The OTA updates might not be available all over the world at a time or you might not have a decent WiFi connection to update your device, so you can download the Official firmware and update it manually by following a simple procedure. The firmware flashing is done using the Odin flashing tool, which is the popular tool among the Samsung community. So Download the required files and follow the process carefully to get the 4.4.2 update on your device.

  1. I’d just like to say thanks to the folks at Android for this rollout of the 4.4.2 update for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 in Australia. As an early user of this tablet I am delighted to say the upgrade proceeded without issue and installed successfully. Well done folks! First impressions are it’s faster and smoother and I find the interface more convenient.

  2. This update is not available to Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE owners in Singapore, which is such a shame. Google apps like photos and hangouts don’t work at all. The lack of support is very disappointing.
