Hurrah! Now, finally, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 users can update their tablet to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. By the way, update is not official. In fact, I can say that there is no sign from manufacturer to release the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, although users are running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. However, thanks to the developers to develop a custom firmware for Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.
The Slim Bean Custom ROM is available to flash on Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and we have to install this update on Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 manually. So, here is the step-by-step guide on how to install Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update on Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. Do follow the below tutorial carefull and don’t forget to read the requirements section to stay away from undesirable results.
Disclaimer: We have not developed this ROM, so if anything happens to your phone or some functionality are not working then don’t blame us! As this is the latest build so it might happen that you face some problem, try at your own risk.
1. Your mobile should have 70 – 80% battery
2. Make sure that you have enabled USB debugging (All apps > Settings > Manage Applications > Development > USB Debugging – check box)
3. The phone must be rooted and CWM Recovery installed.
4. Ensure you have backed up your important data.
Steps To Update Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on Galaxy Tab 2 7.0
Step 2: Switch off your phone and boot into CWM Recovery by “pressing and holding Volume Up + Power Volume Up + Home + Power buttons“. In the Recovery mode, use the Volume keys to move up/down and the Power key to select a highlighted item.
Step 3: Now, perform a full data wipe by selecting “wipe data/factory reset” and “wipe cache partition” and then go to “advanced options in CWM Recovery” from there select “wipe Dalvik Cache“.
Step 4: Now, go to the main menu choose “install zip from SD card” > Select Slim ROM file (Which you have downloaded and placed in SD card) > give “Yes” for confirmation. The process will take 3-5 minutes to install the ROM so wait for the whole process to complete.
Step 5: Repeat the above step again and now select “Slim Apps” instead of ROM zip file.
Step 6: Finally, go back to the main menu and select “reboot system” now. The phone will take 10-15 minutes to start and initialize all the services & apps because this is the first time you are starting a phone after installing Custom ROM.
That’s it! You are now on the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, taste it and do share your reviews with us! Enjoy!
