You have probably heard the fact that Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 LTE is ready to be updated to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop XXU1BOH7 OS, but do you know exactly what you have to do? Don’t worry, as long as this is why I am here for in the first place: to guide you thought the actual Lollipop update procedure and the preparatory steps as well.
For the start, back up everything from your Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 LTE, just to be on the safe side and fully prepared for the fact that the internal storage system will be wiped out during the Android5.1.1 XXU1BOH7 update process; then, you must gain developer options, so go to Menu – Settings – About phone and tap several times on Built Number. After that, you have to navigate towards Menu – Settings – Developer options and check the USB debugging mode.
Up next, make sure the Samsung Tab 4 7.0 USB Drivers are installed on your Laptop/PC before starting the Lollipop update process and don’t forget to deactivate Samsung Kies and the antivirus program if you want the procedure to go as smooth as possible.
As you probably know, the battery of your Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 LTE should be charged too in order to successfully complete the operation. In such conditions, you have to plug in the charger if the power left is lower than 60% or else your Tab 4 7.0 LTE can get bricked if it gets turned off while you try to install the XXU1BOH7 Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update through Odin.
These guidelines are for advanced users only, so keep in mind that AndroidFlagship will not be held responsible if anything goes wrong during the update process. So, follow the steps exactly as they are given below and ask me now if there is something that you don’t understand.
