Hi All,

Tab 3 8.0 is on list for the KitKat update "starting in February and upcoming months" so at the end of march I am wondering if any of you can confirm if updates are rolling ?

my device is rooted and "software updates are not available" for my device but will consider going back to stock if KitKat is available.

please let me / us know if KK updates are really available


cheers

I think what usually happens is the source code is posted by Samsung before an OTA update is rolled out.

Might be worth checking here every so often - http://opensource.samsung.com/recept...hValue=SM-T315

You can change the end value to T310 & T311 to check those models as well.

Hmm... Not sure you can flash those source zips if that's what your referring to? Never actually downloaded one off there before though.

I was just pointing out that usually Samsung uploads something on there beforehand & then an OTA update on the device follows sometime after that.
