How to Update Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 to Official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with XXCLL6 OTA Firmware
1. Extract XXCLL6 official Firmware that you downloaded earlier to get a .tar file and few other files.
2. Extract Odin zip file to get Odin3 v3.07.exe along with some other files.
3. Switch off your tablet and wait for vibration (about 5-6 seconds) to confirm complete device shutdown.
4. Place Galaxy Note tablet in Download mode by pressing and holding Volume Down and Power button until Samsung Galaxy logo appears on screen. Wait for a few seconds until the device boots into Download mode.
5. Launch Odin3 v3.07.exe (check Step 2) as an Administrator, as Admin privileges are required to complete the flashing process.
6. Connect the tablet to computer with the USB cable. A message saying "Added!!" appears in Odin's message box at the bottom left. If you fail to get the message, just try another USB port (preferably the one at the back of the computer). If all else fails, then just reinstall the USB drivers for the tablet on computer. When you get the "Added!!" message in Odin then proceed to the next step. At this moment, the ID: COM port with a number turns Yellow if you successfully added the device.
7. Choose the following files in Odin from the extracted folder in step 2, using respective command buttons:
- Click the PDA Button, and choose the .tar file named 'Code'
- Tap the Phone Button, and choose the file named 'Modem' (ignore if such file is missing)
- Hit the CSC Button, and choose the file named 'CSC' (ignore if there is no such file)
- Click the PIT Button, and choose the .pit file. Use the file from the extracted folder in step 1 (ignore if the file is missing).
8. In Odin, enable Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time options by selecting the checkboxes. Also, ensure that Re-Partition checkbox is selected, only if you are using a .pit file in previous step.
9. Verify that everything mentioned in Step 7 and Step 8 is done correctly. Then hit START button to begin the flashing process.
10. Once the firmware is completely flashed, the tablet will reboot automatically and a PASS message with green background appears in the left-most box at the very top of Odin. You can then unplug the USB cable to disconnect your device from computer.
Galaxy Note 10.1 N8000 is now running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean based N8000XXCLL6 official firmware. Go to Settings > About Tablet to verify firmware version installed.
