Do you own a Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5100? Here is a good new for you as Samsung has finally started rolling out the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for this device. The first batch of the update for the device was released back in January when the users of Tab 2 P5100 in Chile reported receiving Android 4.1.2 OTA update. But that update was meant for the users of Entel PCS only. But now the first firmware for unbranded Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5100 (3G + WiFi) users in Hong Kong is out and ready to be flashed.

If you are from Hong Kong, you should be able to receive the Over-the-Air update via Samsung Kies and on device software update feature. Go to tab Settings> About and tap on Software update to force the download. If you have rooted your Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5100, you will not be able to receive the OTA update. If this be the case, you should download the full firmware file from our link below and install it using Odin flasher tool. Since this is an unbranded firmware, it can be flashed on all international version of Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5100 models, regardless of country or region. To check your device model, open Settings> About. Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Update update for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5100 (3G + WiFi) brings some new features and improvements.


How to Install:

Download the preferred firmware file in zip and extract it on your PC. Inside the unzipped folder, you will see a file with .tar.md5 extension. This is the firmware you have to install using Odin. See the full Installation Tutorial Here.

  2. Ok, thanks! One more thing, can I download other firmwares that have 4.2.2 (such as the AUSTRALIA – XSA-P5100XXDMI1) and use it instead of this?
    Thanks in advance…

  3. Hi!

    Please help! I can’t download Philippines: from both Rapidgator and Upload links…

    Thanks in advance…

  4. Thanks but it doesnt work. It either says captcha expired … wait an hour (but has been saying this for 3 days) or when i first got it to download it doesnt download the complete zip and it cant be extracted or used.
    All forums link to rapudgator or terra and neither work.

  5. I just got it back to p5100 firmware about an hour ago with a slimbean custom rom…. details are in the pic

  6. Hey 🙂 no its not but has csc of xsa.
    I rooted and flashed it about a year ago and was trying to flash it back with official stock rom xsa-p5100xxdmi1 (unbranded australian 4.2.2) so future updates could be gained ota or through kies…. when i downloaded the wrong file after trying so many links that didnt work i must’ve just been happy one did and didn’t check it properly.
    I have now reinstalled cwm rom manager and recoveries and downloaded and flashed slimbean 4.3 onto the tab 2 just to get the sim card back up and running…. i would still love a stock rom that is official with xsa csc so if i ever need to flash back to stock i can.
    Even links for earlier firmwares were not working. I searched for 3 days!!!
    If you could point me in a working links direction i would be crazy greatful 🙂

  11. If you device is locked to VodaCom SIM, I will not suggest you install any other firmware. In case you can use other SIM Cards, yes, you can.

  12. I need some help please. I want to upgrade to JB, but it is not available in South Africa (VODACOM) yet. Can I use one of the above?

  13. The best way to find out SIM lock is to insert another SIM and see if everything still works fine. However, I guess, you device is unlocked.

  14. I just got a Galaxy Tab 2 P5100 from EB australia and was wondering (since update didnt show up in OTA/Kies) if it needs to be rooted to update??

  19. Hi I’m from Iran but my device has set in United Arab Emirates which one should i download ?

  20. Hi mate, you can install the unbranded firmware on your Tab and it’ll work fine. As for English, as firmwares have this so there is no problem for that too. Just get that file your mentioned above, extract it and install using our tutorial.

    Cheers and thanks for the appreciation!

  21. Hi,

    I’m from the Philippines. I got my GT-P5100 which I won from an online contest. They sent me the device and I’m not sure if it’s branded or unbranded. However, I was able to use a local sim (SunCelluar) and it works. Does that mean it’s unbranded? Can I download and install the “Philippines:” file and does it have English language support? My device’s details are as follows if you may find it useful:

    Build Number: IML74K.P5100WALD7
    Baseband Version: P5100XXLD7
    Android: 4.0.3

    I’ve been looking all over the net on how to update my tab to JB and so far this is the most informative site I’ve seen. Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!

  22. I can install Yahoo Messenger to my tab GT-P510. Not the yahoo messenger plugin which is not supported.
    Without plugin, Video and Voice chats are not enabled

  27. забыл написать, что планшет был с официальной украинской версией прошивки.

  28. Большое спасибо автору темы. Выполнил всё как описано на этом сайте и обновил свой Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5100 с Andoid 4.0.4 до 4.1.2. Скачивал прошивку для Польши. Интерфейс сразу стал русским, а доп. язык для клавиатуры скачал чуть позже и …новая шустрая прошивка во всей красоте. Ещё раз спасибо авторам сайта и темы.

  29. I have already installed TunelIn Radio. There is no option to scan the local fm stations without internet

  30. FM Radio is missing. I am not able to install a proper FM Radio. Most of them are internet FM radios which i do not require. Normally FM Radio scans the near by station and plays.

    Could you suggest one which can be installed on gt p5100

  31. I have rooted and flashed P5100 does it works same way or i need to uptate some how diffrently. Sorry for bad english not my native lang 🙂

  32. Hi Rick, you will face some problems with the Google Apps in China. Anyways, download the latest play store apk file from the following link, copy to your tab and install it like a normal Apk file. You will also need to enable “Unknown Sources” option from Settings> Security” to install any app this way-

    If you want to change firmware, install the one for Hon Kong (not Chine) from here:

    Hope it helps you.

  33. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Gt-Pt5110. I bought it in China and I can not install google play. Which firmware for the Root 4.1.1 Jelly bean should I use? I am from America but I live in China. Should I use the one from England.

  34. Dears,
    Here are my tries:
    I download the UK ver 4.1.1 branded VOD. and flash it in my tab2 p5100 unbraded and I worked in it about an hour!!!!!! every thing was very good as I came from ICS 4.0.3, but the only problem I faced is there is no arabic language can be added to Samsung keyboard. So I decided to flash my tab with an Asian Rom 4.1.2, expecting that arabic language can be founded, so I chose the unbraded Serilank Rom, and it is as I expected.
    Now, I have in my tab2 p5100, JB 4.1.2 with multilanguage samsung UK and arabic keayboard, and every thing is fantastic.

  35. I bought my P5100 in Italy. It’s unbranded and factory unlocked. If I install any of the version above (e.g., the French one) will I have the Italian language? Moreover, does this version have an initial logo at startup? THank you

  36. Thanks DroidView for your quick reply, but is there away for someone already have jb 4.1.2 or even 4.1.1 in his tab 10.1 p5100 can check if the (العربيه or Arabic ) exist in the menu of the setting ……….. input language.

  37. It took so many days for you to decide. Now check it and let me know about the changes you see. My tutorial needs a list of new features for other users.

  38. Thanks for updating the link. Press Volume Down to confirm and continue to Download Mode. It was Power Key Before.

  39. Next screen was – Choose a package to install

    # Manual Mode #
    -Applying Multi-csc
    Applied the csc-code:xsg
    Successfully applied multi-csc
    Failed to mount/sdcard
    Totally lost and restarted the tab.

  40. Reboot system now, apply update from external storage, wiped data/factory reset, wipe cache partitions, apply update from cache are the options – I selected apply update from external storage

  41. I reached till Step 7 – Download Mode. But my screen was Android System Recovery Command Prompt opt

  42. Sorry. Never mind. My tab GT-P5100 is manufactured in Vietnam by Samsung and I am in Middle East. Icecream sandwitch android in English.

  43. I have three Galaxy devices and all with firmwares meant for different countries. All are more than healthy and sound.
    If your device model is GT-P5100 (international), you can install this firmware and it will work fine though it is not for your country. If you have any suspicions as to install it or not, better not do it.

  44. I checked the samsung authorized dealer, they are telling the official software (Jelly Bean 4.1.2) is different from this software. It is difficult to connect the internet using your software it seems. Is it true? Please avise

  45. The Hong Kong version worked flawlessly. I noticed significant increase in performance and battery life.
    The only problem I faced is not having Arabic language as an input in both the android’s Keyboard and Samsung’s Keyboard. I had to use a custom keyboard from the market.

  46. Works very fine with the german GT-P5100. All the special signs of speak are working.
    Thank you.

  47. According to SamMobile, this ROM is for Galaxy Note 8.0 N5100 not Galaxy Tab 2 P5100 (that’s clear from the file name)

    Are you sure it works on P5100? Have you tested it thoroughly ?
