by Mihai Matei on November 7, 2012


Samsung seems to continue to work on bringing the long-awaited Jelly Bean update on a wider range of its devices, and as we’ve mentioned before, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is one of those gadgets that have been confirmed to receive Android 4.1 in the future, but are still on the waiting list.

In case you’re rocking a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and you’re wondering about to manufacturer’s progress on the update, we have some info that might cheer you up a bit. More details below.

It looks like the Korean manufacturer has recently posted fresh open source files concerning a wide range of devices, one of which is of course the Tab 2 7.0.

The Jelly Bean open source files for the 7-incher are available for download in case you’re willing to tinker with it, but the big news at this point is that Samsung seems to continue to make progress with polishing the update and making it ready for an official roll-out.

Unfortunately, we haven’t been told when exactly we might expect Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to land on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 but it looks like we’re one step closer to the finish line.


Until that day comes you could give a custom ROM a try, if you haven’t done so already. At the beginning of October we’ve talked at length about AOKP on the Tab 2 7.0, so feel free to check that one out if you’re interested.

In the meantime we’ll continue to keep an eye out on Samsung and hopefully, we’ll get to deliver some good news about the official deployment sooner rather than later. Stay tuned!

Thanks Android Police for the heads-up regarding the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.9 Jelly Bean open source files.
