Maybe you can try try to downgrade to Jellybean from the same region(China).
If it still fails, meaning your current P601 Bootloader doesn't allow to downgrade to Jellybeans once update to KK.

Thank you for the explanation. I tried to use Russian Kitkat version and it worked.

Please don't use the chi a firmware; since it doesnot have google play store or any google stuff.
Russian firmware is ok. It has all google stuff plus extras.

Hope this helps for anyone with a similar issue.

Well, I could only install Russian Kikat version. I guess anyone who tried kitkat on SM-P601 would not be able to downgrade due to boot loader issue.

hello my friend, I had the same problem as you with my sm-P601, I downloaded the firmware on SamMobile and I chose china after installation odin, I've realized that there was not play blind, there was not french, and others. I downloaded a new firmware with another country. but when installing this message is playing in red: SW REV CHECK DEVICE FAIL 3 BINARY 2. I HAVE seen that you had the same problem and you found a solution with kitkat Russian. I want the link to the download please do .I already downloaded firmware at least five but no change. thank you to answer me ... I do not know English very well written
