Hi,

I just got the T-Mobile SM-P607T a couple of days ago. It came pre-loaded with KK.

Android Version: 4.4.2
Baseband Version: P607TUVUANE2

If you search the Sammie site for compatible firmwares, it feeds back the following:

Model Country/Carrier Date Version PDA CSC Kies
SM-P607T USA (T-Mobile) 2014 May 4.4.2 P607TUVUANE2 P607TTMBANE2
SM-P607T USA (T-Mobile) 2014 May 4.4.2 P607TUVUANDA P607TTMBANDA

Nothing else. No older FW's for this device are reflected / found.

I was wondering if anyone might know what (if any) functional differences there are between the 607T and the 605.

Reason: I am considering trying to downgrade this Tab to Official Sammie Jellybean (in hopes of not tripping Knox) so that I can try to Root (again, attempting to preserve Knox 0x0). Would the P605 be a viable solution?

Once on JB, I would likely attempt the method I used to inject root during the 4.4.2 upgrade on my Note-3 which PRESERVED Knox 0x0.

Thoughts?

If you have a new KK bootloader then you can't downgrade the firmware to JB... It will just sit on the Samsung logo getting hotter and hotter...

Thanks, UltraMag.

This question driving this post is now moot, with GeoHot's recently released Root which worked quite nicely.
