Question [Q] Chinese Galaxy TAB S - SM-T800 - It's compatible with which rom?HELP Please

Hello Friends,

I've bought a Galaxy Tab S 10.5 SM-T800 in China but unfortunately I'm not able to install google play and youtube on it,so can anyone help me in order to clarify which ROM is compatible with this tablet without "bricking " it? I'm from Brazil and any info will be very helpful.

Thank you all, Wish you all the best!

Best Regards,

Expedito

Default Chinese tablette, change/add language, flash to french?

Hi guys,

I'm on the same boat, I bought the device from China for my dad, but it only has Chinese/Korean/English language and a lot of stuff he doesn't want/need.
I would like to flash the tablet to French, but it seems the ROMS are country dependent, and I don't want to brick it just yet

What's my best option to get french on the device?

Any feedback on this will be appreciated!!

SM-T800C (China) is compatible with SM-T800
SM-T805C (China) NO (modem.bin, sboot.bin and system.img you can not flash through Odin). If you want, you can flash this firmware:

Dowload firmware ZHU1ANG2 for T805C

Hello Bodivas, so far, thank you very much, but here comes another question, If I flash the firmware in my SM-T800 (bought in China) that you suggest, would I be able to install google play and youtube?

Thanks again.

You'll have the European model with all the services of google working ..
Try to flash this latest firmware for Hong Kong. After the flash, you have to get into recovery mod and do the wipe reset factory.

Hello Bodivas,

Thank you very much my friend. So just confirming which rom I have to download for my SM-T800 (china) the SM-T800 European ROM, install it and then install the firmware that you suggest in your last post?



Thank you very very much!

You just have to flash the one I posted above and do the reset. Stop.
Firmware Hong Kong is the European firmware (not ė China and contains all the google services) but as a rule are the fastest of those european
