Samsung starts Android 4.2.2 update for Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (GT-P3100)

Well, the season of Android 4.2 updates to Samsung’s huge lineup of devices seems to finally be here, as just a day after the update started rolling out to the Galaxy S II Plus in Germany, Samsung is now treating the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (3G variant) to the newer (but not the latest anymore) flavour of Jelly Bean. The rollout has begun in France, with the build number P3100XXDMG6.

Android 4.2.2 brings a number of small but useful changes, such as a dedicated notifications panel in the status bar, lockscreen widgets, multiple user accounts, better accessibility, Daydreams screensaver mode, and also new widgets and launcher from the Galaxy S4. Expect to see improvements in performance and battery life as well.

It’s quite odd to see mid-range devices getting preference for the Android 4.2 update, though that does show Samsung isn’t giving as much special preference to their high-end device owners, and it confirms again and again that devices like the Galaxy S III and Note II will directly get updated to Android 4.3.

The update can be grabbed from Kies or via an over-the-air update on the device itself (Settings » About tablet » Software update), and you can also download the firmware from our firmware page to manually update (manual update can be done on any unlocked Tab 2 7.0 from any country, but outside France you may have to wipe data to make it boot up).

Firmware information:
Model: GT-P3100

Version: Android 4.2.2
Changelist: 1198223
Build date: Mon, 29 Jul 2013 02:17:49 +0000

  1. Where is update for SGS3?? and why T-mobile PL&DE forgot about tab 2 4.1.2 update. This is crazy.

  2. Now all must have new Samsung device to be first in line for update to new software. Shame on you Samsung!!!

  3. And what about ace plus :( waiting for it…….

    • you can flashed CM10.1(4.2.2)jelly bean!

      it works great but have some problem like flashlight cannot work or some games crash!

      But the developer from XDA would gradually improve it.

      I hope I can help you ! bro

      • Thanks dude.

      • thank you my gt-p3100 4.1.2 is now 4.2.2 thank you very mch…hope soon gt-p3100 have 4.4.2 plz…god bless more power…

      • can you give me 4.4.2 firmware for gt-p3100? plz?

    • You don’t want to have jelly bean on the ace plus. I have here at home a galaxy ace 2, ace plus and a mini 2. The ace 2 has recieved jelly bean but is so slow en laggy that i went back to gb and if you keep in mind that the ace 2 had 768 vs 512mb ram and a 800mhz dual core vs 1ghz single core, I think jelly bean will be really slow on ace plus. Samsung is so a stuppid company, not anyone can spend 500€ on a S3 or S4 so they have cheap galaxy’s for them but if you want want an update you have to live whit an unsuable device. Thanks samsung for notting.

  4. I know people ask this all the time..

  20. what happen to p6800 tab 7.7 ?? i think we have to wait another 3 years for this update,,, LOL


  22. In November 2012 I heard that GS3 will get 4.2.1 update in March 2013 but they skipped and told us to update the device directly to 4.2.2, now google announced 4.3 and they will update S3 and Note 2 directly to 4.3.

    May be in next few months google will Release 5.0 and Samsung will jump directly to 5.0 for GS3 and Note 2, lol.

  23. a few days back SG3 of india got a software update. but was again some bug fixed version of 4.1.2 (i couldn’t find any difference from my previous 4.1.2 though).

    Does this mean, that SG3 owners should not expect any software update to 4.2 or 4.3 in near future? :/

  42. How does Samsung determine your country for the purpose of OS upgrades? Is it the country where you bought your unit, or the country that you’re presently located in, or something else?
