Jelly Bean Leak for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2

‘Tis the season for Jelly Bean. While we’ve reported mostly on custom ROMs and unofficial ports, OEMs seem to finally be catching up to XDA and releasing Jelly Bean for their devices. It’s a good sign that official Jelly Bean is starting to slip through the cracks, and it’ll be interesting to see which devices get it and which don’t.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 owners probably don’t have to worry. Why? Because Jelly Bean 4.1.1 has leaked for the device. By that we mean that SamMobile grabbed the OTA leak from Samsung’s servers and posted it for everyone to download. There are a few quirks to the update. First, you’ll have to be on the stock P3100DDBLH3 firmware, as the OTA checks before it allows for a flash. The leak was first posted to the site by XDA Senior Member LuffarJoh.

Installation is pretty easy. Users simply need to flash back to the stock firmware mentioned above, place the OTA on their external SD card, and flash via stock Android recovery. If you’d like to remain rooted, you’ll have to wait just a little bit longer. For download links, installation instructions and more, check out the original thread.

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors.
