Hi guys, I've read through other threads but I believe my case is very different and felt I should ask. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Wifi and I really want to put Kit Kat (4.4.2) on the device but after days of searching, it seems like there has not been a roll out for it yet, even for just the Wifi version. So (please tell me if I'm wrong), I thought maybe I could take a Kit Kat ROM (even stock) from another device such as the Galaxy Note 10.1 and port it to this device. I'm a developer but not for Android. Is this possible?

Or maybe can you point me to some beta version of Kit Kat for this device? Is there any way to get it?

I'm not a dev, but porting cm I think is not possible, I wanna say it has to be built from source.

And flashing a ROM for a different device will only leave you with a brick

You can try anything you want. Who knows, you might even be the creator of a new operating system. But then again, you might eventually take your brick to the recycle center. One will not know until one tries.

However, why not just wait for Kit Kat and let the "professional" developers at Samsung do the work for the P5210. I am sure it is not that far behind the others.
