Current CANADIAN firmware?
Hey all, I just picked up a Note 8.0
I didn't realize it was so, well, "old" lol. It just seems like an awesome little device :)
It shipped with JB 4.1.2 and there is no update available according to the unit or Kies.
I guess I'm mostly worried about the security issues with the older firmware.
(and well, hey, new features are nice too!)
I tried to contact Samsung support, but they dodge the question and will not answer ANYTHING
related to firmware support, upgrades or availability of them. (CANADA)
Should I be worried about the older firmware? (security)
How risky (and hard) is rooting the device, and flashing to Kitkat 4.4.2?
Is there a specific firmware for the Note 8.0 due to the Spen?
- or even 4.2.2 (due to the SD read/write issues)
Re: Current CANADIAN firmware?
There's supposedly a new 4.3 or 4.4 update being release for the Note 8, but I don't think anyone in Canada has seen it yet.
It's been annoying talking to Samsung Canada about it too, as they don't say much of anything at all.
