Default Help getting back to stock

Hi All,

Hoping for some advice

Ages ago I installed some custom roms on my UK N8010 - I now want to pass the tablet onto a non technical family member and want OTA updates to work

I did a restore before and in download mode it showed Binary as official and system status as official but OTA was not working

I've used Odin to flash the BTU N8010XXUCMG1 stock rom on there from

All seemed fine, though now there is no OTA update to test.. when I hold Power+Volume to get into download mode it is still showing "Odin Mode" at the top

Can anyone advise how I can be sure that OTA will work?

Thanks in advance!!

connect the note to Kies on pc , and check on Kies for updates, if it says u r modified then OTA will not work, if it says u r on latest firmware , then u r good (I think )

Thanks - It did that before but still failed when upgrading on the device itself

I did some more digging and managed to find an older firmware on, flashed that and it's updating ok it seems
