Samsung’s Galaxy Tab A is Samsung’s new addition in its tablet line up. Galaxy Tab A is gaining popularity because of its justified price with its specifications. The Galaxy Tab A landed in two different variants i.e. 8.0 and 9.7. It looks like that Samsung won’t be focusing on the 5th iteration of the Galaxy Tab series and it will be adapting a different strategy for now by bringing devices like Galaxy Tab S and Galaxy  Tab A.

A huge 4200 mAh battery is fixed inside this device. Galaxy Tab A runs on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop straight out of the box. Tab A sure has a bit low end specification, but the device got a lot of software perks that you’re going to love and you may not find on Galaxy Tab 4 or lower models This time around, Samsung played a bit different. The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 doesn’t come as a lone device with varying connectivity bands, but Samsung released a variant accompanied by an S-Pen having same specifications as that of the ordinary Tab A 8.0. Tab A 8.0 without S Pen comes as SM-T350 & T355, while with S-Pen it comes as SM-P350 and P355.

    You will lose OTA when rooted I’ve tried every way possible but Knox will get you period. Don’t root if you never want to update again.

    • @nofixedpath:disqus You can always update your Tab using Odin. OTA is not the only way to update your device.

    It’s okay for me I don’t care if I don’t get a update

  • Diego Olivatto

    Hi! This is a reversible method?

    • @diegoolivatto:disqus If you wish to remove root access, you will have to flash the stock firmware. Flashing the root file again won’t unroot your phone, so it’s not a reversible method.

      • Diego Olivatto

        @usamamujtaba:disqus, thanks for the reply. How i can to backup my stock rom? It’s possible without ROM or any modifications?

        • @diegoolivatto:disqus for that you will have to install a custom recovery. While flashing custom recovery, you will loose warranty.

          You can create a Nandroid backup using a custom recovery that will backup your whole current system.
