Default Note 8 Issues with software...HELP!!!

Hi there.

I have recently bought a Galaxy Note 8.0 off Ebay and the reason why i bought it is because it was cheaper than the high street and i wanted an 8" tablet with good specs; before i bought this tablet i was told it has an EU plug which for me didn't matter at first as the voltage of EU and the UK (where i currently reside) are the same and that updates i feel would be almost similar.

I feel i made the wrong decision in buying this tablet.

Samsung told me that the Note 8.0 "should have" Android 4.3. Mine is still stuck at 4.2.2. I thought of resetting the device but after a few minutes of doing it the screen kept flickering with the Android symbol and a message underneath saying " Downloading. Do not turn off target". At the moment i am waiting for anything to happen and not turning off the device.


What could this mean? Any advice please. Help!!!!

I was told by Samsung UK that Android 4.3 is available.

And how about the symptoms i have been experiencing. What could that mean?

Look like you enter download mode by mistake when you try to reset. By pressing vol down+power button. Just cancel and as long as you dont actually download anything it will be back to normal.
No official 4.3 as you can read in this forum
