Even though the Tab Pro is yet to hit the market, we’ve already got the Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware available for download.

This guide on installing the Android 4.4 on Tab Pro 10.1 WiFi, SM-P905, is to help anyone who breaks anything on software front on the Tab Pro 10.1 WiFi, and is looking to restore the tablet back to factory settings.

In case you root or install custom ROMs or recoveries like TWRP and CWM, it helps in removing such hackery stuff too, which the factory reset won’t. Because, it installs the Android 4.4 all fresh, and thus overwriting everything.

So, you can use this guide for:

  1. Install Android 4.4 firmware, thus restoring your tablet back to original factory settings
  2. Remove Root
  3. Remove custom recovery like CWM and TWRP
  4. Remove Custom ROMs

  STEP 0: CHECK DEVICE MODEL NO.

To make sure your device is eligible with this, you must first confirm its model no. in ‘About device’ option under Settings. Another way to confirm model no. is by looking for it on the packaging box of your device. It must be SM-T520!

  STEP 1: BACKUP YOUR DEVICE

Back up important data and stuff before you start playing around here as there are chances you might lose your apps and app-data (app settings, game progress, etc.), and in rare case, files on the internal memory, too.

  Example video: If you haven’t used Odin before to install a stock firmware or anything else, then we suggest you first watch a video of that to get familiar with the process. The video demonstrates flashing of CWM Recovery on Galaxy S3, but since the procedure is same for flashing stock firmware also, the video will helpClick here to watch the video

Important Note: Backup important files stored on internal SD card of your device, so that in case a situation arises requiring you to do a factory reset after flashing stock firmware, which might delete internal sd card too, your files will remain safe on PC.

  1. Extract/Unzip the Odin zip file, Latest Odin3 v3.09.zip on your computer (using 7-zip free software, preferably) to get this file: Odin3 v3.09.exe
  2. Extract/Unzip the Firmware zip file, T520XXUANAF_T520OXAANAF_ITV.zip on your computer (using 7-zip free software, preferably) to get this file: T520XXUANAF_T520OXAANAF_T520XXUANA7_HOME.tar.md5
  3. Move the firmware file, T520XXUANAF_T520OXAANAF_T520XXUANA7_HOME.tar.md5, in the same folder in which you extracted Latest Odin3 v3.09.zip (just for your convenience, that is). So, now you’ll have the following files in that folder:
    • Odin3 v3.09.exe
    • T520XXUANAF_T520OXAANAF_T520XXUANA7_HOME.tar.md5
  4. Disconnect the Galaxy Tab Pro from PC if it is connected.
  5. Double-click the Odin3 v3.09.exe file to open Odin.
  6. Boot your Galaxy Tab Pro into Download Mode:
    • Power off your tablet first and wait for 6-7 seconds after display is off
    • Press and hold these 3 buttons together until you see Warning! screen: Volume Down + Power + Home (or, try Volume Down + Power)
    • Press Volume Up now to continue to Download Mode.
  7. Connect your Galaxy Tab Pro to PC. Odin window will show an Added!! message in bottom left box. Odin’s screen would look like this:
    Odin 3.09 - Samsung-Galaxy-Odin-Device-Added-Screenshot
    If you don’t get the Added! message, here are some troubleshooting tips:

    • Make sure you have installed driver for Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 WiFi as said above in ‘Before you begin..’ section.
    • If you have already installed driver, then uninstall them and re-install back.
    • Connect using a different USB port on your PC.
    • Try a different USB cable. The original cable that came with your tablet should work best, if not, try any other cable that’s new and of good quality.
    • Reboot tablet and PC and then try again.
  8. Load the firmware file (extracted in Step 1) into Odin as instructed below:
    • Click on the AP button on Odin and select the T520XXUANAF_T520OXAANAF_T520XXUANA7_HOME.tar.md5 file (from step 2). Your Odin window should look like the screenshot below:
      Odin 3.09
  9. Now in the Option section of Odin, make sure that Re-Partition box is unchecked. (Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time boxes remain checked, while all other boxes remain unchecked.)
  10. Double check the above two steps.
  11. Click the Start button to begin flashing stock firmware on your Galaxy Tab Pro, and wait until you see a PASS! message in Odin’s top left box.
  12. When you get PASS! message, your tablet will restart automatically. You can then disconnect your tablet from PC.

If you see FAIL message instead of the PASS in Odin’s top left box, that’s a problem. Try this now: disconnect your Galaxy Tab Pro from PC, close Odin, Power On and then Power Off again, open Odin and then repeat from Step 6 of this guide again.

Also, If device is Stuck at setup connection or on any other process, then too, try this: disconnect your Galaxy Tab Pro from PC, close Odin, Power On and then Power Off again, open Odin and then repeat from Step 6 of this guide again.
