    So um i have a samsung galaxy tab 3 and none of the google play services work and it can’t update from anywhere in the settings.
    Is it possible to install like a new version of android on there or is it too old?
    I heard that there’s a lightweight version of android that works on older phones , is that still a thing?
    Lol i’m new to android and i don’t know much i’m sorry
    Anyone have any ideas what to do?

    You wont update the play store ? Are apps crashing?

    You can try flashing with Odin , go to XDA Forums to see if they have your firmware and how to do it .

    Welcome to Android Central! When you say you wiped the data cache, do you mean only for certain apps, or for the system? https://www.t-mobile.com/support/dev...g-galaxy-tab-3
