There is certainly nothing wrong with running the Android 4.4.2 KitKat software updates on your Android tablet but if you want to gain full privileged control that allows for more chances to install what you really want on the Android operating system you need to root the device. Rooting is also perfect for removing anything that is on the operating system such as the system apps that are installed onto the system partition by the manufacturer and phone carrier networks so you can’t remove them on a non-rooted device.
- You need to have the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 101. That comes with the SM-T530NU model number to use this guide. There are often several model numbered variants of a particular device and Chainfire usually developers a different file for each one. Should you flash the wrong file on the device, it can result in the bricking of that device.
- You must have a version of the Windows operating system running on the computer before you can use the Odin flashing tool found in this guide.
