A few months ago I wrote about ‘Flashing BlissPop ROM Lollipop 5.0.2 on Samsung Galaxy Tab S (SM-T800)‘. I’ve upgraded this ROM a few times since then, but something went wrong recently, which has caused the sound to not work in all video playback across multiple apps. It is quite odd. Anyway I decided the best way to troubleshoot the problem was to flash a stock Samsung SM-T800 ROM and go from there.
I downloaded the firmware from SAMMobile . They have quite a few country versions, but I picked United Kingdom.
After I downloaded the firmware, I grabbed the latest Odin3 v3.10.7.exe and bin file, which needs runs in Windows 10 (and previous versions of Windows). Here are the steps I followed.
We just got the Samsung Galaxy Tab S. Our first tablet. It is an awesome 10.5″ Super AMOLED 2560 x 1600 pixels tablet, measuring 6.6mm thick. It is super fast with its Exynos 5 1.9GHz Octa-Core processor. 3GB of RAM on board means this tablet is a beast.
My only gripe was the dreadful Samsung Touchwiz software that is bolted onto the Android 4.4. Kitkat operating system. Not that it is a major problem because I am very familiar with flashing ROMs and in this post I am going to tell you how I flashed a Lollipop 5.0.2 BlissPop ROM onto it.
