Samsung pushed out the official OTA Update to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Note 8.0 LTE tablet. Check your device’s System Updates menu and see if your region is supported. The XXCMG7 firmware update is being released in stages with United Kingdom being the first one to get the new official Android 4.2.2 OS.
If you didn’t receive the OTA Notification then you should connect your Galaxy Note 8.0 LTE model number N5120 with your computer. The Samsung KIES will work with rooted tablets too, but the ones running custom ROMs cannot be updated using this PC software. Also, note that in case you update your rooted Galaxy Note 8.0 using OTA or KIES methods, then the root access will be revoked and you will restore the device’s warranty.
The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update comes with support multiple user accounts, quick settings, lock screen widgets, DayDream screensaver-like tool and multiple others. The news have been reported first by SamMobile. Also, if you didn’t receive the firmware update for your tablet, then you can use ODIN app and the N5120XXCMG7 Firmware zip file in order to manually flash the new files. If you don’t know how to use ODIN, then you should return to this post as we will update it with a working tutorial link that you can use in order to learn how to properly update the Galaxy Note 8.0 with the latest Jelly Bean 4.2.2 ROM.
After the update is applied for your tablet, you should start testing the new features. Note that now you can use the multi-user feature and set different profiles that can be used. This means that you can set a profile for yourself and one or multiple for your children or for friends that are currently allowed to use your Galaxy Note 8.0 LTE device.
If you did receive the official Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OTA Update for your Galaxy Note 8.0 LTE, then you should tell us in comments how is your tablet working with the new firmware version. Remember that this firmware update has been pushed only in the UK for the moment, while all the other regions should get it soon.
