  18. Brief Review

    Screen shots here


    Installing the update: OK, about 5 mins, it will take up sometime at “Applying the patches” be patient

    Bootanimation: New and smooth

    Overall performance: much better than ICS but lags a bit compared to Nexus 7 ( I own one so I know) and maybe TW could be the culprit here (or the official release will be better, we just have to be patient!!)

    Big Change: No screen shot soft button, setting menu on the home screen has been moved up, tweaked notification menu when compared to stock JB notification

  31. Hola desde Venezuela saludos a todos. Un semi novato nuevo por aca…
    Alguien ya actualizo, flasheo esta version ya en su GT-P3100.
    tiene capturas, fotos, videos, como anda y funciona? que ayuda, informacion nos pueden facilitar.
    Yo descargando ambos archivos.
    Si queria actualizar a Android 4.1 Oficial, por que con Cyanogenmod 10 No me fue nada bien. ( muchos errores en las aplicaciones, muy inestable ).

    Hello everyone greetings from Venezuela. A novice semi new here …
    Someone already update, flash this version on your GT-P3100.
    has screenshots, photos, videos, and go and work? to help, we can provide information.
    I downloaded both files.
    If you wanted to upgrade to Android 4.1 Official, that with Cyanogenmod 10 I was no good. (Many errors in applications, very unstable).

  32. I tried your process , however when I connected my Tab GT P3100 to Odin it fails to show yellow/blue light. My Tab build number is P3100DDBLF3. Does your new firmware apply to my tab.
    Please help

  33. galaxy sII

  34. My tab 2 p2100 has updated recently on 5th of this months. Now my baseband version is P3100DDLG1. Build no. Is P3100DDBLH3. Will I able to flash 4.1 to my device?

  35. My tab 2 p3100 has updated recently on 5th of this months. Now my baseband version is P3100DDLG1. Build no. Is P3100DDBLH3. Will I able to flash 4.1 to my device?

  36. When will Android 4 to P-7300?
    Samsung did not keep his word to update it in July or August.

  37. Can’t samfirmware/sammobile use torrent to link ROMs. That way it would be easy to download since there are three problems solved that way – fast download, no corruption of downloaded file and saving bandwidth for users with limited/slow network.

  38. Does any one know if this works for GT-P3113 Model?

    Thank you.

  39. every things seems working smothly but the ui is not cool as tablet ui

  65. ciao a tutti …..ma può funzionare con il gt-3110?qualcuno mi sa dire?

  66. “Installing the update: OK, about 5 mins, it will take up sometime at “Applying the patches” be patient ………”

    How long is “take up some time”?
    I remember seeing the “Patching remaining system file ….” message at 9:33 and it is now 10:05.
    It is still not ready!

  67. Seems like the “Patching remaining system files ……. ” completes without further automated actions (eg. reboot or complete messages).

  68. Completed the upgrade and it is definitely smoother than 4.0.4.
    BUT, wifi connection don’t work!

  69. 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 ……

  70. Hi

    Please help me

    Regards Vinu

  75. Is there still gt-p3100 bug after 4.1.1 update?

  76. “i am stuck up
    after putting the file on external memory card. i followed the following steps
    - Restart the device into Recovery Mode (Press Power Button + Volume up)
    - Select Apply update from External Storage
    I am Stuck on the below step!!!!
    - Browse to the OTA update and flash it
    i have folders coming up. which file to select. please help. my tabs in a sad mode now!”

  77. rhovs use volume up or down ky to move the selection line. Use power button to apply (something like double click)

  78. yeah the update takes close to 15 min. If it is stuck inbetween just hold the power button for few seconds the tab should reboot. if its still ics just try once again if itss JB enjoy, if its bricked hmmm you lost it aint you

  79. 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!!! ^_^

  80. question is how can I root it?

  81. Should i unroot my tab before installing this if then how……….?

    PLZ HELP…..!

  82. 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.

  83. Hello frnds.
    There is a screenshot option for the jellybean update of tab2.
    Press “power + lowervolume” button together for 2 seconds.
    You will get the screenshot.
