Default [Q] Help with Tab 3 7.0 update

I have a Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 and it won't update to 4.2.2. It is rooted and Samsung told me to try KIES but It won't connect. Is there a way for my to Flash 4.2.2 and reroot with Odin? The Update page says the device is modified. Is there a way to change so it will update?

Thanks, Levi

You can't flash OTA updates on a rooted device. Just unroot, update then reroot. Unless there is a stock 4.2.2 rooted rom out there.

I am looking but is there a unroot guide available? Will I lose all my data? I work with desktop hardware more than software so I am not an android expert


Thanks, Levi

As far as I know, 4.2.2 hasn't been releases for Tab 3 7.0.

Edit: That's a lie actually. I believe it was released for the LTE models. Wonder why hasn't been released for the WiFi models.

That explains why best buy said 4.2.2 was available.


I wonder if universal unroot would work?
