EXCLUSIVE: First Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Jelly Bean OTA leak

Samsung just leaked their Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OTA update for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (GT-P3100) for India.

This OTA update is not yet available to anyone but we of SamMobile found a way to get the update before…

This is the very first Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean TEST OTA Update for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (GT-P3100). We wanted to give Samsung’s Die-Hard fans a taste of Jelly Bean before it’s officially released. This update will also help 3rd party Android Developers, like CyanogenMod Team, to improve their Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean custom ROMs for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2

Android Version: 4.1.1 – JRO03C
PDA: P3100DDBLI1
Country: India (INU)

OTA updates’ require a specific base firmware on which they can be flashed upon and are flashed through the stock Samsung Recovery.

This P3100DDBLI1 Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OTA update requires the user to be on P3100DDBLH3 firmware.

Don’t worry we will guide you through all the steps on how you can apply this OTA update on your Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7.0 (GT-P3100). Make sure you perform a backup of your data before attempting to install this!

very very nice.very smooth. everyone seem to have the same problem (patching remaining files taking too long) . dont worry about that. just wait for around 15mins and just reboot your tab. everything should be fine as long as u closely follow the instructions.

Thank you so much, Sammobile!!
I’ve done it, and now it working perfectly..
Only take at least 30 minutes to do this update,,

There is only one problem, because it use phablet U/I on homescreen, so it can’t do auto-rotate on it.. but don’t worry, just download HOLO Launcher HD to fix this problem..!!

Jelly Bean rocks!!! ^_^

Fixed the wifi problem with downloads from XDA.

I am using a HTC WFS as a WLAN and the problems at the moment are:
1. Web browsing is fast and smooth
2. Google Play download speed is slow and very very laggy!

Not sure if Google Play will play nice if it’s downloading from a wifi router ……
