Hello,

I want to share my firmware files. So here is the standard FTF file for the german SGP311: [click] [click2]
MD5 F2E1786CA1632EDA5097A24EFAFFC73D

I also rooted the firmware following the thread of [NUT] : [click]

So for rooted 4.3 you will need these files: [click] [click2]

MD5 for FTF 091714BF9B1C67957B4EC22774043F34
MD5 for zip 23075426FAE5D117A9CBA7BC338A1D10


To install you need to be rooted and have a recovery installed (for example Dual Recovery, again by [NUT]:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2261606
  1. Unpack the zip so you get two files: Annother zip and an ftf file
  2. Put the zip on your sd card
  3. Flash the zip via recovery
  4. In recovery shut down
  5. Start flashtool. Get your tablet into flashmode and flash the stripped FTF provided
  6. After flashing finished, enjoy rooted Tablet

The files are tested and okay. But I am not responsible if you brick your tablet.
All credits and thanks to [NUT].

No, its the oiriginal ftf from the pc companion. And its for SGP311, so as far as I know there are no branded firmwares for, because it has no lte module. In other words: Yes, it is unbranded.

Thanks for the procedure.. I have one favor to ask, can you upload the stripped ftf file only...? i am having problem downloading the whole .109 firmware due to its size.. .. hope you can upload it here....

I guess all I need are just stripped ftf of .109 and the recovery zip of .109 firmware to be rooted in the latest .109 firmware since i'm already rooted and has recovery in .577 4.3...

Thanks in advance..

Edit Comment: stripped ftf and Zip file is included in the .rar..thanks! i'll try this when i got home..

Please report if it worked. I dont think that flashing the stripped ftf alone will be enough. At least you will stay with the old kernel. I recommed doing the whole procedure.
Also I cannot upload anything at the moment because I am on vacation.

To the guy who does not know how it works: I can write a more detailed guide when I am back. For the moment You should read my post again. You can find every information you need in this forum. Have a closer look at the development section. There should be a thread about how to root 4.3 with locked bootloader.
