Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 GT-P3100 (3G + WiFi) Receives Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean Update


A couple of month ago Samsung released a list of its Galaxy line up that would be upgraded to Android 4.2 and 4.3. Later we got rumors that OEM will promote some of its older flagships like Galaxy S3 and Note 2 to Android 4.3 directly. It has been more than a month since the 4.2 firmware was leaked for the former device (S3) and the delay in the official release can be seen as just another indication that the above mentioned smartphones might be directly promoted to Android 4.3.

The way Samsung has started the Android 4.2.2 update to a less popular mid-range device like the Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus cannot be without a reason and we hope that the neglection of S3 and Note 2 that might be tasting sour to the users of these devices, will finally turn into some pleasant sense pretty soon. Another mid-range device from Samsung’s second generation tablet line up has now started receiving Android 4.2 update via OTA. The users of Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 GT-P3100 finally have a big reason to smile as they are now entitled to enjoy the not-so-latest version of Android before most other people with higher models.

The first Android 4.2.2 firmware for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 GT-P3100 (3G + WiFi) is already out for the users of this device in France. Since it is an unbranded firmware, it can be installed on any Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 with model number P3100 that is not locked to a network provider. In other words, if you are able to use ant SIM card on your Tab, you can have this new firmware.

We have not been able to test this firmware, nor do we have any official changelog, so we cannot list what new features the 4.2 update for the device brings with it, but we hope that it’ll improve the performance of the device and also bring the multi-page lockscreen with widgets support. Download the firmware from below, install it and lets us know of the new changes you discover.

  • If you wish to install the branded firmware, try this:

  • ZackDitan

    Should I download this P3100ZCDMH1 (China) or P3100UBDMF1 (Argentina) This both have newer Built Date. Which one should I go with? Need your advice..

  • All firmwares do have English.

    You can enable any language on your device:

  • Yes, I keep updating this post with the latest ones.

  • ZackDitan

    Sorry for too much disturbance but I have something to ask, Does this China Firmware P3100ZCDMH1 have English language on it?

  • ZackDitan

    And I hope you’ll have that new firmware here. Haha. Thanks alot for your cooperation.

  • Then go a step back:

    And wait till newer build of the firmware with less bugs are available.

  • ZackDitan

  • ZackDitan

    Can you help me out ASAP?? Please bai.

  • ZackDitan

    The Unbranded France JB 4.2.2

  • Which firmware did you install?

  • ZackDitan

    I already did it. It’s still useless, and I’m not the only one facing this problem..

  • Reboot PC and tab. If it does not help, do a factory reset.

  • ZackDitan

    Thanks for the fast reply. Anyway, theres one more thing, when I updated my tablet to JB4.2.2, whenever i copy any kind of a file from my PC to android/obb it wont let me, some kind of error message appears “The has been disconnect or unavailable” I reflashed, wipe cache and data reset. Still no use, I searched online but still useless. Can you help me out? Regards

  • The branded version is meant only for the devices bought from a network provider/carrier. If your tab works only with a particular SIM, it is branded.

  • ZackDitan

    Hello. Whats the difference between the Branded and Unbranded?

  • Not sure, it might have or not.

  • NGUYEN Hoang


    in the firmware for tab2 4.2.2 france version does it have vietnamese language?

  • After installing the older version of firmware via Odin, you will not see any of the issues associated with this firmware.

  • Riju Michael

    And also one more thing…
    Is there any problem to reinstall the current version once again in my GT-P3100..?
    I want make sure the missing options in this update is actually missing from the OS itself..
    Can i reflash this with Odine like i flashed it earlier..?

  • Riju Michael

    Hey Boss…
    Is there any way to downgrade my GT-P3100 android to 4.1.2..?
    If there is a way please guide me to it…

    Thankz in advance…

  • Thanks!

  • Riju Michael

    Here u go BOSS…

  • Riju Michael

    Surely, 🙂

    which all screens would u like to have..?
    If u specify it will help me a lot..

  • Riju Michael

    None of the above application is capable of monitoring USB Tethering data…

  • And hey, could you give me a few screenshots including the About screen of your device?

  • Riju Michael

    I tried few from the app store…
    But none of them monitor my USB Tethering details…
    They only monitor default network data and WiFi tethering datas only…
    If u can please suggest me a good app which monitor all my network activities…
    Thankz in advance…

  • Install a data counter app from market.

  • Riju Michael

    Can some one please check whether USB Tethering usage details showing under DATA USAGE in Settings..?
    Bcoz In my previous version it was there but in this update i am missing tethering usage details from my Data usage informer under Settings…

    Is there any way to add tethering counts to it..?
    Or is there any alternative way to track all data usage including tethering, browsing, applications, my Tab..?

  • Riju Michael

    Thankz for the fast reply…
    Developer option sorted out with ur help..
    Camera sound disabled with third party application..

    The only problem remains is the predictive text…
    In the old version for example if i am entering my mail id in some fields it remembers it and give suggestion the next time while i enter first 2,3 letters…

    In this update even if i clicked the word to store in my tab prediction, its not at all giving back…


    Check your keyboard preferences under Language and Input settings.

  • Riju Michael

    Great update…
    Thankz a lot for the post….

    Except for some little problems;
    I am not getting the Developer Options under settings after i upgraded to the above Firmware…
    Is it hidden in this update or did i messed up my tab some how..?

    Also i cant able to disable my camera sound even if i kept my tab in complete silent…

    Also my tab is not memorising the words and phrases once i typed in…
    In old version after i enter a new word the next time tab will show that word in suggestion/prediction…

    Please help me with these things….
