Samsung has released the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop firmware for its Verizon Galaxy Tab 4 LTE, but don’t get too excited before the time. The update is currently live for a few regions for each tablet, so not everyone has this Lollipop privilege.
Are you tired of waiting? Do you want to flash the Android 5.1.1 T337VVRU3BOH2 update on your Verizon Galaxy Tab 4 LTE? If you have rooted your device, installed a custom recovery or performed any unofficial operation, I am sure that you will find this procedure as being more than useful.
However, do not go straight to the Android 5.1.1 update procedure. For the start, you have to enable the USB Debugging on your Verizon Galaxy Tab 4 LTE and make sure you have Samsung’s drivers installed on your PC or else you won’t succeed. Do not forget to back up your SMS Messages, Call Logs, Contacts, apps, system data and other important content as long as if something goes wrong, you still have access to all of your data and you can restore it immediately.
Also note that this Lollipop update method is only for the device mentioned from the beginning of the procedure. I am talking about the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 LTE-A SM-T337V variant, so make sure that your model number matches the one listed above. In order to do that, go to Settings > About Device on your Samsung handset and verify your model number. Flashing this firmware on any other device will result in bricking it, so make no confusion.
Let’s go ahead and get this procedure done right away.
