  • aravind reddy

    hi rakesh i am from india. can I use any other regions 4.2.2 firmware(like russian or swiss) to update mt tab p3100 which is now 4.1.2?

  • Links have been updated.

  • Boss Andres

    hotfile no sirve

  • I already suggested that you need not install another 4.1.2 rom to get battery percentage as it is not there at all. Just use the apps I suggested above.

  • ZackDitan

    Sir? Im sincerely waiting for your reply..

  • If it is not in one 4.1.2 firmware, it must not be there in any. If you want battery percentage, install an app:


  • ZackDitan

    It’s completely unlocked to all carriers

  • is your device locked to a carrier?

  • ZackDitan

    Philippines actually. I’ve tried the Indonesian firmware (It does not show battery percentage) which is same with the build date of the Philippines Firmware, so i think they’re the same

  • Where are you from?

  • ZackDitan

    This is the newest release of 4.1.2??

  • Yes, it should. Go to Settings> Display to find the option.

  • ZackDitan

    Do this can show battery percentage?

  • Kevin Chapple

    Cheers DV (Admin). Thanks for the tip. Here’s hoping 🙂
    When I spoke with Samsung, they gave mixed messages (annoying!). One op stated that “The S4 has just got it, so the Tab2 7 should get it very soon”! Another op stated “It has nothing to do with us, it’s all down to Google, and they don’t tell us when/if it will be released”!
    And a third advised “We don’t know whether it will be getting it or not, otherwise it would have been out by now”!
    I simply HATE IT when “Customer Service” ops seem to hand out “grab remarks” as opposed to any facts.


  • Hi Kevin, we have heard about 4.2 coming to tab by October-November. As for 4.3, we have no idea currently.

    As a rule, all devices released with ICS are due to get JB (all versions).

  • Kevin Chapple

    Any news on 4.1.2 or even 4.2/4.3 for the Galaxy Tab2 7″ (P3110). This is a UK unit, WiFi only. Samsung claim they have no knowledge of the update ;-(

  • Yes, you can upgrade your tab if you do not have problem with English.

  • Roberto Alexis

    I’m from Honduras, as I can do or that I can download to upgrade my GT-P3100 …

  • I am not sure that which firmware from above has Arabic. You can install Swif Key keyboard app that supports Arabic.

  • Hello help me to install arabic language on my tab 2 7.0 jellly bean…please..

  • You got OTA that contains only files that contain new things and improvements so it is small. But the service center upgrades by installing the full firmware that is much bigger. As for difference, there should be none bt it also depends on the firmware version.

  • Try rebooting the device and if does not work, perform a factory reset from Settings.

  • I downloaded and installed it correctly. The problem is that I no longer get the call log menu. Someone can help me please?

  • rahul

    hello dear how r u my glaxy tab auto sceen on off iam lock scren but my phone just 2 scend on off plz help me ima used 4.1.1 version glaxt tab 2

  • Prabuddha DasGupta

    I did a quadrant standard test and it appears the tablet is performing worse now with the 4.1.2 version as compared to the 4.1.1 I had earlier. The earlier tests yielded 3100+ results always while the results I am getting now are in the region of 2700+. I find that a little odd. Have others also got similar results?

  • Prabuddha DasGupta

    Thanks. I shall try that if this problem crops up again.

  • You should try a ‘wipe data factory reset’ from recovery to fix little issues. Sometime a mix of old and new files result in bizzare outcomes.

  • Prabuddha DasGupta

    Hi Rakesh,
    In fact I did select English UK as my chosen input language, but twice it changed to French. I guess there were other issues too, since the tablet (P3100) kept restarting. Now, it appears to have settled down. Fingers crossed for now.

  • Hi Prabuddha,
    Android 4.1.2 firmware is not yet available for India and when it will arrive, the page will be updated.
    I have tried French firmware on my Note 10.1 and Polish on my S3 but never did I get any issue like that. Did you not select English as your preferred language at the first boot after installing the firmware?
    Anyways, try to change the language from Settings>Language and Input>Language.

  • Prabuddha DasGupta

    I downloaded and flashed the version you have posted meant for France. Is that why the system language automatically changes to French every now and then? My tablet is a rooted version and I was not getting any updates via Kies. So I followed this route. Is the version specifically for India available for download anywhere?

  • Prabuddha DasGupta

    I agree. In Jellybean, there seems to be no battery percentage option at all. Maybe a widget needs to be installed to show the data.

    By the way, the instructions for both flashing the rom and for rooting were very straightforward and simple. Thanks

  • Vishant

    When will the official OTA 4.1.2 jelly bean update be available for samsung galaxy tab 2 GT-P3100?
    I do not want to manually install it. Its a risk.

  • Now I get it! First I had to Up to 4.1.1 then to 4.1.2 .

    Thx for sharing the firmware.

  • Show me the screenshot of the error.

  • Man, i followed each step and I cant update my p3100 from 4.0.4 to 4.1.2 .

  • I tried to Update from my 4.0.4 and did not work, I will try 4.1.1 .

  • No risk if you stick to the instructions but if you stray, it might be.

  • What is the risc to brick my phone?

  • dear i already do that but there is no arabic language iam sure so can i downgrade again to 4.0.4? anf if ok please provide me with official link for the firmware which contain arabic

  • Download apk file and copy to device via USB and install them or install via Play store.

  • Go to Settings> Language and Input> Language> and select Arabic.

  • Reboot your device and try again. It should be solved. If it still persists, boot your tab into Recovery mode as follows:

    1. Hold ‘vol down’ and ‘power’ buttons on tablet

    2. Release ‘power’ when samsung image is shown

    3. Release ‘vol down’ when the two icons are shown

    4. Use the ‘vol down’ to navigate between the icons

    5. Highlight the left icon (box)

    6. Press the ‘vol up’ to select it and boot into recovery mode

    Select “wipe data factory reset” and wipe, then reboot the device. Note that doing this will delete all installed apps, settings and contacts, etc.

  • Hi DroidView. Just installed the firmware and it was great!
    I found one problem though: whenever I try to access the Widgets toolbar, TouchWiz suddenly stops unexpectedly. My installation process went smoothly, so I’m guessing there’s something wrong with TouchWiz.
    Any advice on how I can fix this? Thanks in advance!

  • mohamed badran

    Dears i download the new version 4.1.2 and install it normally but the problem i only can read arabic from mails/sms but i cant write as there is no arabic keyboard so please help how can i install arabic urgent please, my device is tab 2 7.0 P3100

  • The two homescreen modes you are talking about is only for phones like S2, S3, Note and Note 2.
    Go to Settings>Display> Display Battery Percentage, and check the box, you should have it.

    Do not forget to join us on Facebook, thanks!

  • rahul698

    when i install 4.1.2 firmware feature features are same as 4.1.1 no multi window then what I do please tell me answers

  • You seem to be spammer!

  • rahul698

    i am from india and i did not see any firmware link suited for my country? only from Russia, Uzbekistan, Ukraine (Kyivstar), Kazakhstan how to download a firmware for tab 2 p3100 of india

  • Hi,
    When the official firmware is installed, it replaces all custom things, just as the custom ROM replaced the stock features. You need not do anything additional to install the Stock recovery. Just install the firmware, nothing else.

  • F. Bh

    i ve an important doubt.
    if i ve loaded a custom firmwire/ROM—->cyanogen 10.1 which gives the enjoyment of jelly bean 4.2, with less bloatwares and fast perormance(obviously which need a CUSTOM RECOVERY), then will flashing an official firmwire via ODIN removes the CUSTOM RECOVERY(no doubt it removes the root, but does it also removes the custom recovery) and brings back the STOCK RECOVERY, in case i want to avail my warranty back.

    if some addtional steps are needed to revert back to stock “recovery”, then please guide me by the required steps to do so.

  • It is up to you whether you change the CSC or not. The firmware will run fine.

  • Dickson Balanian

    Good day! I’m from the Philippines and I have a GT-P3100 ICS with a Build Number of P3100XXBLH2…Do I need to change my CSC to the default CSC of my country which is “XTC” after i install this Jelly Bean firmware update that i downloaded from your link?

  • You need not root your tab to install an official firmware.

  • mohamadreza33

    can i install it without root?? i dont want to root my device. plz help

  • Wow – thanks for an amazingly quick reply! Followed the instructions and 4.1.2 works perfectly, thank you so much!

  • Hi Myk,

    There is nothing like being silly in asking something. Doing a thing you do not know much about is silly though.
    As for this firmware, this will perfectly work on your Tab. Install and enjoy Android 4.1.2.
    And yes, do not forget to support us on the web and join us on Facebook. Thanks and regards!

  • Hi there. I’m new to this, so please excuse me if this is a silly question but will this work in Australia? My Tab2 is not locked to a carrier.

  • Yes.

  • Prashant

    Hi, I am in india, will this update work in india ?

  • Jack

    Oh that’s a shame! An thank you for replying so quick!

  • The multi-tasking fature has been enhanced, but you will not get multi window unfortunately.

  • Jack

    Just to confirm is there multi window view (as found on the note 2) on the tab 2 on the 4.1.2 version of jelly bean? Thanks

  • Keep an eye on Kies, check on the phone and keep visiting Droidviews. We shall let you know when it arrives. We hope it should come in February.

  • When 4.1.2 update launch in india and does it has multi window function a video review plzzz

  • LOL! I did the same thing once with my Galaxy Note 10.1 and had a few bugs. In fact the hardware is almost the same as far as the variants of the same device is concerned.

  • Thanks once again, I had the 4.1.1 installed but I took a chance and installed this 4.1.2 version on my non 3G device, the installation process failed using Odin, but I turned off to try again and for my surprise the sofware has been updated and its working well, the only annoying thing is the offline connection icon.

  • Android 4.1.2 has been out yet for your device. You can install Android 4.1.1 though:

    When the 4.1.2 comes out, we shall be the first to tell you. Stay connected.

  • Where can I find the P3110 Wifi Android JB 4.1.2 version of the ROM? It’s been released? Thanks.
