  • There might be newer updates for you device but the firmware is not available. If your tab is carrier unbranded, try this firmware.

    It would work fine for you.

  • Pavle

  • Pradip Das

    Is it possible to upload it to some another file hosting site or as torrent, Im facing lot of problem to download from rapidgator.

  • As you say you can use different SIM cards, your device is not SIM-locked. Download and install any firmware that has not the name of a carrier associated with it.

  • Ifeyinwa

    Thanks Rakesh. How do one check if a phone is locked to a network? I have the exact brand you answered about. I can change the SIM I use to any network if I wish. Is that what you meant?
    Thank in advance.

  • If your phone is not locked to a network, you can install any unbranded firmware.

  • Karan P

    Hi, I have a Chinese (original)P5100. I upgraded to 4.1.2 recently from a Chinese Rom, not knowing there was no Google apps in Chinese firmwares. What can I do?

  • Kim Zammit Endrich

    Thanks for replying and taking action so soon. I managed to download and successfully install the Australian firmware. I wanted to install the UK or Italy version sine I’m from Malta (Europe) and thought the different region wouldbhave adverse effects. However I am happy to report my satisfaction with the firmware. All thanks to your tutorial! So much better than taking the rooting route too many apps and processes and risks involved!

  • Yes, that’s was a mistake. I have already removed the incorrect links and added a few new firmwares. I would recommend you to download this firmware instead:

  • Kim Zammit Endrich

    I noticed that P5110 is the WIFI firmware. Please change the links to redirect to the correct firmware download for 3G + WIFI. I am now downloading the Australia version of P5100. Hopefully I will be able to upgrade once more and utilise the mobile data facility.

  • Kim Zammit Endrich

    Hi I just successfully upgraded using the UK BTU version. However, I cannot locate ‘Mobile Data’!! Cannot switch it on, cannot find it in settings… nothing!!! I also noticed that since the upgrade the model number has changed in settings… its shows as GT-P5110, whereas it was GT-P5100 prior to updating. HELP 🙁

  • Raja Ahmad

  • Raja Ahmad

    Which firmware has greatest build number

  • Alireza Mousavi

    I wanted to install new firmware by Odin but my Windows 8.1 doesn’t recognize my tablet.

    I installed both Kies and Samsung Drivers but not any promising results, I also tried to connect my tablet to 2 other computer which were run by Windows 8,7 but again the same problem is there something wrong with my tablet ? or if I factory reset my tablet will there be a chance for my computer to recognize it ?
    (Windows Device and Printer also can’t find my tablet)

  • You can try the Itally version that has a greater build number.

  • Alireza Mousavi

    do Australia & Italy have the same problem of France or not ? or they are OK ?

  • Glad to know. 🙂 Keep visiting.

  • Alex

    Installed the french version and works great.

    It has my language too (romanian)

  • The update file on our post and the one on the link are the same.

  • Alireza Mousavi
  • Well, it’ll not affect any network capabilities but as for the language I am not sure if you’ll get yours or not. After installing the ROM, you can try this:

  • Alex Ontaneda

    Is there a problem if I’m in Ecuador this affects the 3g of my country or I operate normally when you make calls and send text messages with the company of my country.

    also would like to know what are the languages ​​that brings this firmware

  • I do not see any problem in installing the Firmware if you do a data/factory reset after updating. Try the latest version of the fimware that bring some fixes to slow system issue:

  • 4asdg

    some people don’t like this update
    do you recommend it?

  • willver23

    Thank you…..

  • Andrey

    Thanks a lot for this post! Just updated my Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to jelly bean! All works fine with this french version. I even have my native language (russian) on device 🙂

  • Then go ahead.

  • Vytautas

    Actually i don’t have any problems, infact i can’t imagine myself using lithuanian language on my devices at all 😀
    Thanks for the fast reply

  • You can install it on your device if you do not have problem with English.

  • Vytautas

    Model: GT-P5100
    Android version: 4.0.3
    Baseband version: P5100XXDL7
    Build number: IML74K.P5100XWALD7
    Location: Lithuania
    Will JB 4.2.2 be available in Lithuania, or can i just slap on French one and i wont feel the difference?

  • Hi, you can directly jump to 4.2.2 without any issues. As for the OTA update issue, I think it is a CSC mismatch issue that is preventing the update.

    Android 4.2.2 is the last major update for the Tab 2 and do not think you’ll have to ever bother for more updates.

  • samiul

    Now my samsung tab 2 10.1 { GT-P5100 } is running on android ICS ( 4.0.1), will there be a problem if directly update it to JB ( 4.2.2 )?, Let me tell you my tab doesn’t asks me for any update automatically, ever going manually ( Setting > About Device > Software update > update ), Stated me ” No update available “.I also tried to updating it using KIES ( using usb driver ), it states ” GT-P5100 does not support initialising “.

    I just want an official way to update my tab to JB.So disparately waiting for your suggestion.

  • shan

    cant download it from hotfile source file too large ;(
    plz give me another source like torrent thanks in advance

  • Yes, you can install it.

  • shan

    Hi Rakesh
    i just bought galaxy tab 210.1 (wifi + 3G) and not able to update via kies
    plz tell me can i install this update manually..

  • Okay, nice to know that.

  • Jen

    Thanks, Rakesh! Problem solved and I am back in my comfort zone.

  • Go to Settings> About> Software update and disable all options.
    Also, go to Settings> Applications> All> Software Update, tap it and select Disable and Force Stop.

  • Jen

    My Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 downloaded a file which I assume is the 4.2.2 upgrade and keeps asking if I want to install it. I don’t. Can I get rid of the annoying message and make sure that I keep running the earlier software my tablet shipped with?

  • I do not agree with you. There are certain apps that do not run if the device is rooted. Though you will update your device manually, you should be aware that it is official.

  • Stephanie Jones

    Thank you so much!

  • DjoDjo

    Does an update over Odin crush your original android license serial nr or not, I am now running 4.0 and the local Samsung organisation does not offer any further updates for Galaxy Tab2 ; I am asking this because there seems to be certain applications that will no longer run if you are using self-flashed updates

  • Stephanie Jones

    I no longer have the screenshot icon. How can I do a screen shot on my Tab2?

  • kat

    I agree. go very horrible

  • Lingfei Tang

    It is a horrible update. It is laggy and looks unfinished. I have been searching how to downgrade…
