The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition is receiving a OTA update between the 12th of November and the 28th of November that upgrades the OS to Android 4.4.4 KitKat. The new build number associated with the installment is P607TUVUANJ4. If you already installed the file manually or the over the air signals automatically, you can root the tablet once again by following these steps.
You should know that gaining root access is the first step in unchain the devices internal system. It removes the default factory restrictions put in place by the device manufacturer. We remove and unlock the hardware. Google and Samsung do not permit this so there are many risks involved. Firstly, it voids the warranty. Moreover, users can brick the device if they don’t follow the steps carefully. That’s why we always suggest finding somebody with experience if you don’t have any yourself.
We are using our favorite method for gaining root namely the CF-Auto package from ChainFire. We love ChainFire’s work since it delivers an experience that stays close to stock. Additionally, it’s easy to follow the guides. You don’t have to be an advanced Android users to understand what’s happening.
Details of Note
- Backing up is the most important part before taking the initiative and going ahead with any guide. We know the data is sensitive and a factory reset will wipe the data. Backup the SMS texts, call logs, videos, pictures, market apps and all other data you don’t want to risk losing. There are several useful applications available from the Google Play Store if you don’t want to use Google Drive. Search for Helium, Holo, G Cloud, SMS backup+ and others.
- This version of the One-Click root solution only works for the 2014 variant of the Note 10.1 for T-Mobile. Thus don’t use the same step-by-step guide for a different device.
- You must enable USB Debugging Mode from the Developer options menu. The Developer options menu comes from the Settings menu unless it’s locked in previous versions of Android. We know KitKat doesn’t lock it up, therefore it’s on display. You can’t follow these steps unless you are using the latest version of KitKat so that’s why we know.
- Check the battery power level is enough so that it doesn’t shut down during the installation process. We recommend having at least 50% battery power before starting. We know the tablet comes with USB charging as a stock feature. However, sometimes USB charging doesn’t work and that will cause a great deal of pain for those who experience a device shutting down. It can soft-brick the tablet.
- Make sure you have the up-to-date USB drivers. You will find them from the official Samsung website or third-party sources where you download the file manually. If you are connecting the tablet to the PC and you can get access to the data, you already know the drivers are working properly.
- The one-click program is easily applied. But, before being able to do so, we must make sure we have a computer ready. We are using a Windows PC since we have the Odin tool. Samsung only makes the application available for those using Windows ranging from Windows XP through to Windows 8. Correspondingly, you want to deactivate any security programs running on the computer and the Android tablet. The Android device has them from the apps screen, while you’ll notice the antivirus from the Windows task-bar or system tray. Remember to start them up again once you leave here so you don’t browse the internet without protection. We know the files are safe during the installation process, therefore there’s nothing to worry about here.
