If you are the owner of an LTE-equipped Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 (SM-T335), you’ve probably been lamenting the fact that your device has been left behind on a seemingly obsolete version of Android, version 4.4.2 KitKat. It could well be time to turn that frown upside down though, as Samsung has begun rolling an update for the tablet in Switzerland, all the way to Android 5.1.1.
That’s quite a leap from 4.4.2 to 5.1.1, and hopefully it will avoid some of the bugs we’ve seen on other devices that received Android 5.0.2. updates. You can wait for the update to reach your Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 LTE (SM-T335) via OTA, which may take a little while as the OTA is rolled out to other regions. Or, if you are the impatient type, you can download the firmware directly from SamMobile to flash manually via ODIN. The firmware has a build date of June 20, with build number T335XXU1BOF8 and a change list number of 90673209.
You can download the firmware from SamMobile here, remembering to follow the step by step instructions carefully. Once you’ve received the OTA or manually flashed it, let us know if your Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 LTE has improved performance and of any bugs or new features that you may find.
