I just got this tablet from my wife for christmas and don't get me wrong it suits my need for a tab, but is it ever getting an update? Currently it runs android 4.1 which is massively outdated. I see the carrier versions are running at least 4.2.2. I've looked all over and have found nothing other than 1 article with the tab 3 listed for maybe getting kitkat.
So if it suits your needs why mess with it?
I have a Tab 3 T-211 that I rooted, and installed CWM - But other than that the stock 4.1.2 firmware works just fine.
On my Galaxy S3 I tried a variety of ROMs - Seemed like it was a constant battle getting everything to work right.
Finally settled on a stock variety de-bloated ROM with root, and called it good enough.
I'm sure updates and / or a stable aftermarket firmware will become available soon enough for Tab 3's with patience.
