Finally after many months of waiting and not really knowing if Samsung would update my beloved Galaxy Note 8” 3G GT-N5100 phone.
Now I'm rocking 4.4.2, yeah baby!!
A simple process I followed at International Business Times ran smooth. I had a number of apps that did not update and received many failed to load messages when I restarted. All were fixed by uninstalling and reloading from play store. All except Amazon Kindle, of course I am deep into a book I would like to finish. I have not found a fix as of yet but will chase it down this evening.
Also ran root as well from here.
