Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 aka Tab 2 310 getting software update in India (Update: Stability update, not JB)

After a recent leak of Jelly Bean OTA at SamMobile, Samsung India seems to have started rolling out Android 4.1  (see update below)update for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 310 owners in the country. The update is reportedly available over-the-air, but you can also try via Kies app.

As we have only got one confirmation so far for the update, it might be a trial roll-out, so wait for some days, if you don’t get the update right-away.

The update is 207MB in size. The changelog is not available right now.

If you have updated your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0  do let us know in comments.

Update: Sorry folks, false alarm. It seems to be a stability update, not Jelly Bean)

Thanks Zeeshan

      I would suggest you buy a samsung galaxy tab 2 310 with a Jelly Bean update, i just went through the review and features of the device, i should say its too awesome to miss. I too am waiting for the Jelly Bean update, once that is done i’m getting one for myself.

    I also thought it was ANDROID 4.1 update.After installing found out that it is the same 4.0.4 this update basically is a stability update and according to me the previous stock ROM was ok, this is not upto the mark.It has included Dropbox and new version of all share as stock app.The new music player feature is added .More importantly apart from the small update the main reason of this update was to make the GALAXY TAB 2 ready for ANDROID 4.1 update by changing the baseband version to the version which is required to have ANDROID 4.1.

      Just click on download and the TAB will download it and after that it will by itself install it and after installation is done the TAB will be like it was before.You do not have to do anything apart from downloading.

    I had updated the galaxy tab 2, yesterday model no GT-P3100, but it is sad that it not a 4.1 update of Jelly Bean, it is just a nominal update, which has a new keyboard, and some additional features and many improvements. like the addition of new mood based song playlist, and addition of all share play, app. also few icons are upgraded. I had done an over the air update. did not connect via kies, update was automatically downloaded and installed. ota.

      That is right. I agree with Swapnil

      Sudheer Reddy

      (September 13, 2012 - 12:25 pm)

      Yes i too had the same dissatisfying feeling after finding what is been installed after the update. it was nothing but 4.0.4 with new keyboard which is good though very spacious. but no other considerable improvements. more so it has spoiled my pre update experience.

      i love the touch sound in android, but not it has been replaced by water drop sound when ever we touch screen and believe me it is irritating to ears which i cannot change also. rather i have muted that sound completely.

      i dont know why people misguided us saying this is the Jelly Bean update. i was so exited and tensed up when the Tab is getting installed with the new firmware and i am completely disappointed after the Update.

      even disappointing is that before installation i used to get decent speed in 2G internet now it has become crap. the 2G internet has gone real slow and laggy.

    The Update you are talking about was a FirmWare update and not Jelly Bean update. But yes JB should be shortly followed.
