Default Note P905 cant update

Hello!

I just bought my new tablet and I wanted to make sure I have latest version for my device, but I got a message saying that my device has been modified, ok so then I installed kies and it told me I had the latest version avaliable, then I went into download mode and I saw system status:Custom, I tried to wipe both partitions but still the same problem.... I bought this tablet today feels very strange that my system is custom. On my note 3 it is says official

Are you using a MicroSD? If yes, take it out, then reboot and check again. It's a known bug.

SM-G900F International Galaxy S5, PHN NCE Stock
SM-P905 NotePro 12.2 LTE Black, DBT NC3 Stock

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.

If you rooted you've tripped the knox security sistem and samsung won't update a rooted device. At least that's what Ithink happened on my device...
LG G2
Transformer Prime (don't really like it, never worked completely)
Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 LTE (SM-P905 Snapdragon version)

Hello
I have the same problem. Is custom but Knox is 0x0. I try everything, including Odin, but NO result. In Odin don't start the process, in Kies it shows that is the last firmware, and OTA "the device is modified".

This is a common issue with the SM P905 variant, I had the same problem myself. The only way to sort it out is to send it to Samsung for repairs or take it in to a service centre. I'm pretty sure all they'll be doing is reflashing the firmware but you might not want to void the warranty by doing it yourself.

Hello
I solve the problem by using another laptop with WinXP. But please make an IMEI backup. I don't make it, and now my IMEI is /01 and I don't have Phone acces. ..

Wait simply for the update via KIES or OTA. It will be available soon or is still available for a lot of countries.
Status will pass from modified to Official.

check this thread : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2710004

Hi,
You first have to check if this particular update (not the stability update BUT this "modified status bug" update is available for your country.
Check it here http://live.samsung-updates.com/inde...device=SM-P905
