Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Android 4.4.2 Update Rolling out in the Sates

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Android 4.4.2

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Android 4.4.2 OTA update is now being pushed to users in the United States, according to a Google+ post by Lance Burkhardt Samsung Experience Consultant Lead.

Last week it was reported that the Android 4.4.2 update for Samsung Galaxy Note 2014 Edition is being rolled out in Colombia and other select markets for the WiFi-only model. Since the WiFi-only variant is getting updated in the US and in other regions as well, the 3G/4G models will hopefully follow soon enough.

Even though Burkhardt haven’t mentioned anything about the rate at which the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Android 4.4.2 is pushed to the users, we will most likely be dealing with a staged roll out, meaning that some of you might not be able to download it right away.

The update file weighs 550 MB and once your Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 is eligible to receive the new firmware you should receive a system update notification. Tap on it, then follow the on-screen instructions. In case you haven’t received the system update notification it’s recommended to perform a manual check under Settings > More > About device > Software updates > Check for software updates. Given the size of the update file it’s recommended to download it using a stable WiFi network.

There’s no official change log for the Android 4.4.2 update for Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition yet, but you should expect to have a lot in common to the KitKat updates that have been rolled out for other Samsung devices. Aside the usual KitKat-goodies such as white status bar icons, transparent status bar, new Location menu, cloud printing, immersive mode, color emoji support, you should also expect minor TouchWiz interface changes, improved Samsung Keyboard, updated Samsung apps, and better power management.

Has the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update been made available for your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition? What country are you based in? Please let fellow owners know in the comments section.

    Seems Samsung has dropped their Note 10.1 customers (2012 version) N8013.
    No KitKat update for us. What’s up with that?

    • All access

      Yea that’s some bullshit

      • Matthew Apostolou

        Nope! According to Sammobile, it’s coming to the 2012 edition too :) Although 2 years of support does seem reasonable considering the growth of the market.

  • Jack Lucero

    I received my update today, but not over the air. I downloaded it off the Samsung Kies software, so if anyone is not receiving the alert I’d recommend plugging it into Kies

    • HB

      Jack, was that on the Note 10.1 USA edition?. I have the N8013

      • Jack Lucero

        This was on the note 10.1 2014 from USA WiFi edition sm-p600 I believe

  • jm

    Does anyone know if this update includes the UX magazine?

    • george

      I think they removed that feature. At least when I click the home button, it doesnt pop up any more.

  • Lorelle

    Update arrived in Portland, Oregon, 12 hours ago, Nice interface improvements and I swear the resolution and colors are bitter on the 10.I 2014. Must be my eyes. : -)

  • JLee

    Just received my update in Louisiana.

    I am updating my “Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition” right now, I had to connect to my iMac using Keis program, it would not connect directly to the server via the tablet, it said it reach maximum downloads. I am located in Chesapeake, Virginia. It gave me a message to connect via Samsung Keis. I installed Keis on my iMac rebooted and connect my tablet, it automatically asked me if I wanted to do the firmware update. So it is updating right now. I am somewhat excited about this update, but I really hope we get the update for the newest version 4.5. I just got this tablet a month ago, if Samsung does not update us to 4.5 by the fall or end of the year, I will never buy a Samsung device again, it wont be worth it. I will switch to iPad. I don’t know why Samsung is so slow updating there base products with all the money they make it should be a top priority to keep current customers happy. but sometimes its all about numbers not customer service.

    • Bigdaddyhammer

      When is 4.5 supposed to be released?

      • http://blog.seanholderphotography.com/ Sean Holder

        That’s probably the most mysterious question. As of now only Google knows, and we will probably never know until it comes to your device, depending if they include this device on that update. I am guessing at least a year as slow as Samsung is at doing anything. If iPad comes out with a stylus model I am saying “GOOD BYE” to Samsung FOREVER, that is how I feel about their support.

    In Alabama and I have tried both upgrade options and still nothing. I have been waiting for this forever and really frustrating.

  • Micheal Paul Mcmillin

  • Lee Buczynski

    Just updated this morning OTA… checking it out now… looking really good so far!

  • Goku

    I received the update, and it’s pretty cool. I’m considering rooting my device to download HanCon Office.

  • Bob

    Seattle, Wi/Fi. Receiving the update right now.

    So excited, thanks for the heads up reporting and comments! Downloading KitKat now for Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) Wi-Fi/ 32GB (SM-P6000ZWVXAR). Massive 549.37MB download will take one hour, or so. I can hardly wait!

  • GalaxyUser

    Downloading over wifi in NJ as we speak. 4/26

  • BadBen

    Maine, Wi-Fi. Just updated and running fine.

  • LK

    Just got the update today – US

  • LK

    BTW my update came by notification when I turned my tablet on to use it this evening. No searching, it was waiting on me. :)

  • Bubba Gump

    Just got my update today.

  • James Friedhoff

    Samsung 10.1 2014 update is here and downloadable united States

  • Dax

    got it pushed to me today (04/27/2014), located in California

  • ndaddy

    This update is absolutely worthless to me because of the sd card limitations. I use Folder sync to keep copies of my cloud files on my sd card. Being able to sync to my external card is more important than kit kat to me.

  • cal

    Looks like they didnt include the magazine ux. Or is there a way to enable/download it?

  • Tonya

    I updated this last night and have had nothing but problems! Many touch screen options are not working (power/restart), some apps will not open, Facebook comments will not pop up. This is very inconvenient.
