    Had been a few weeks since I used it; picked it up yo play last night and found a update ready to install. I did install it. It left the tablet taking FOREVER to go through startup and wifi is disabled now. When you try to turn on wifi it just says "starting" but never does. I factory reset it after that, of course losing my custom setup and beloved apps. No change to wifi issue. To add insult to injury, i cannot even search for updates now because I have no network access. I believe I am out of warranty now so I am open to ROMs, root, etc. Have done so on other tablets before. TRULY BUMMED OUT! Help me Ob-wan-Android Central, you are my only hope!

    [SOLVED] UPDATE; after second hard factory reset WITH EXTERNAL SANDISK 128GB ULTRA REMOVED, everything works fine now. Did tons of research and the Tab S 10.5 has a recurring issue with corrupting large capacity microSD cards especially Sandisk models. replacing the 128GB card with a 64GB or smaller "Samsung" microSD card after factory reload has been the answer so far and it worked for me. I was able to get a RMA for my card through SanDisk for the 128GB corrupted model; when I get the replacement I will use it on other devices. Hope this helps some of you.....
