Firmware updates are always a welcome thing for any smartphone or tablet device user. We are always keen to know when or whether our device will get the latest version of Android. If you own a Nexus device, you might feel a little pumped with air when an Android dish is served when hot, but if you have a device Samsung, HTC, Sony, LG or any other OEM, rest assured that you’ll get the latest version of Android after months of wait when things become stale. What is ever worse, sometimes this wait never comes to an end. This situation resembles very much like that of the 2 tramps in Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot”.
Software updates are desirable things indeed because they bring new features and performance improvements. However, the Jelly Bean updates for some Samsung Galaxy devices like Note, Note 2, S2, Ace 2 and S Advance in the past have failed to meet the expectations on users. The popularity of downgrade tutorials like this is just enough to testify it.
It has just been a few weeks since the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean firmware update for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 GT-P3100 (3G + WiFi) rolled out. The users of other variants of this second generation tablet from Samsung got a reasonable reason to receive Android 4.2.2 any time. And now, it has already hit the WiFi version of the Tab 2 GT-P3110!
The first Android 4.2.2 update for Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 GT-P3110 has started rolling out for the users of the device in United Kingdom and it can be availed via OTA or Samsung Kies. Since it is an unbranded firmware, it can be installed on all Tab 2 7.0 with model number GT-P3110 that are not locked to a carrier,
Though we do not have any official changelog to point out what new features and changes the new firmware brings but we can affirm that it will introduce features like 2-page notification panel, Daydream, lockscreen with multi-page and widget support, some changes in Settings UI, multiple user accounts, and so on.
The new firmware for Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 GT-P3110 with PDA version P3110XXDMH1 can also be downloaded from below and can be installed manually using the Odin3 tool.
