Here is the news users of Samsung Galaxy Note had been waiting for, for a long time. Galaxy Note N8013 can now be upgraded to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean as Samsung releases the official firmware N8013UEUCMA3 for the device in the U.S.
So far, Galaxy Note N8013 was running on Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Here we will guide you to install N8013UEUCMA3 official firmware update in Galaxy Note 10.1, model number N8013.
Before we start, you should remember that the firmware is exclusively for Galaxy Note 10.1 model number N8013 and should not be tried on any other devices. Though the firmware is official and would not affect the physical memory of your devices, still we suggest you to take proper back up of your data.
As UEUCMA3 is an official firmware, by installing it you will lost custom ROM like CM10, Paranoid Android or AOKP. The official stock ROM will replace the custom ROM.
You should not forget these points before going ahead
- Backup your data and apps.
- The device has at least 80 percent battery power.
- The USB driver must be installed for Samsung Galaxy Note N8013 in your PC.
- The USB Debugging must be enabled.
- Backup your EFS Folder.
In order to install the UEUCMA3 firmware you will be needing these two files (click to download)

Here is how to install the firmware in your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

Step 2: Extract Odin zip file and you will get Odin3 v3.07.exe along with few other files.

Step 6: Now connect your Galaxy Note 10.1 N8013 with your PC using USB cable. A message will arrive under Odin's message box in the bottom left saying "Added!!". If you don't get the same then you should try another USB port (try USB port located in back in your desktop PC). If that too don't work then you should then reinstall the driver. If you successfully see the "Added!!" message in Odin then you are ready to go in next step. You should also see COM port with a number in Yellow if you successfully added your device.

Step 8: In Odin window, make sure Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time checkboxes are selected. Also, make sure that Re-Partition checkbox is selected, only if you are using a .pit file (see Step 7.4).
