Galaxy Tab S 8.4 has been exchanged for a brand new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 (T719N, 2016 model). It features 3GB RAM, 32GB memory, LTE, 8.0″ display, Octa-Core CPU (Qualcomm MSM8976 Snapdragon 652), and one major con – it has no flash. After turning on instantly upgraded to stock Android 7.0 (Nougat).
Today we tried to update firmware / bios for Samsung P1000 Galaxy Tab (GT-P1000) using Kies… and succeeded. This update should have fixed at least two annoying issues:
- Desktop icons lost after reboot. (Samsung Galaxy Tab – Missing Icons, Missing app icons after reboot, All Home Screen Icons disappearing, Losing desktop icons and wallpaper on reboot).
- Samsung Galaxy Tab obtaining ip address… (Tab cannot get IP address for WiFi problem + recs, Cannot connect on wifi… Galaxy Tab, Stuck on “obtaining IP address.”, WiFi problem: stuck on “getting IP address”)
The fact is, that Missing Icons problem is solved. Icons are not disappearing anymore. About WiFi – need some testing, but we hope that it is fixed too.
P.S. this is Polish version… only version that are currently available here in Latvia.
P.S.S. as far as I understand, this is not a 2.3.3 but some version of 2.2.x.
P.S.S.S. it seems, that all applications and settings was preserved, except two Angry Birds – Angry Birds Seasons and Angry Birds… third – Angry Birds Rio survived upgrade.
Below are some screenshots from the firmware update process.
