Can I manually update my tablet from Android KitKat to Marshmallow?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (31853points) March 11th, 2016

I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro running Android KitKat. I want to update the OS. Is this possible? Is it difficult? The machine is 2 years old. I don’t have to update it. It’s running fine. I tend to like to have the latest version of software, but updating this is not urgent.

If it didn’t get Lollipop from Samsung doubt you can jump to Marshmallow (maybe able to root the tablet and go to new update but it could turn into a “paperweight”).

I want to avoid creating a paperweight.

It did not get the Lollipop upgrade from Samsung, ticking me off.

How much trouble do you want to go to?

You could root the Tab, and then load a newer ROM (lollipop). It’s a great opportunity to learn something new :-)

But if things are working fine, then there is no compelling reason to do so.

It’s working. I’ll keep it like it is.

Thanks, friends.
