    Default Samsung Galaxy Tab-2 Update notice today!

    I received a notice that an update had been downloaded to my Tab-2 and was ready to install! It is a 64.01 Mb upload. It says it will mess up my Icons on my home page. If this update fails I can updatewith KIES..
    I didn't know an update was coming and it does not say what version it updates to!

    Anyone have more info?

    My wife has been getting that notification for two days, at least. Every time she tries to apply it, it fails and tells her to use Kies. I told her to ignore the !@$!! thing.

    I told her that if it became annoying enough I'd replace Samsung's garbage firmware with CM, for her, just like I did on my Tab 2.

    I installed the new OS. It did not mess up my home screens, seems to be running OK. More later after I have had time to play with everything!

    I already had Android 4.2.2, received update on Friday. After installing I see no difference. Can anyone tell me what the update contained?

    I contacted Samsung Suppirt and learned that the update fixed some minor bugs in Android 4.2.2 version.

    I received the update notification and told it to update.

    I later got a message - something to the effect "firmware update failed - use Kies or take the device to a Samsung Service Center".

    Three questions:
    Should I worry that the firmware wasn't updated?

    What is Kies, how do I use it, should I use it (three questions in one!) I'm sorry, I really know nothing about Kies. Maybe a pointer to an i'diot's guide" or something.

    Does this update fix the "won't turn off" problem with the Tab2 10.1?

    Thanks!

    I just noticed the update on my tab 2 7.0........I did the 4.2.2 upgrade back in August and didnt care for it..seemed to slow down my tablet. I called Samsung & they said not to download it (current download was 64mb).....it wouldnt work anyway ...they were having issues and were working on a fix....so I dont know why they sent it out. I also have a note 8 and s3 that I've kept on 4.1.2 as I don't like how it changed somd features and slowed down the 7 inch tab. It would be nice if you had some kind of idea what you were going to install before hand....nt

    I received the update and it bricked my tablet. I've never had a problem with it and now I can't even boot the thing up. It was at 82% battery when I tried it. I called tech support, they tried some things - nothing worked. Tried downloading ODIN to flash to original firmware. ODIN says pass but it still won't boot. Samsung said they aren't liable because Android rolled out the update, not them. I went from a perfectly good tablet to a brick. Does anyone have any suggestions??

    Does it still boot into either the boot loader (volume down + power) or recovery (volume up + power)?

    Please explain your battery issues.

    On my Galaxy Tab 2 7, it charges to 100%, when i shut it down over
    night with battery maybe at 75-85% and then turn on next day battery
    will be down to warning level 5-10%. If I just turn it off then it will charge
    back to 60-85% in a short time with out being connected to anything.

    If i connect it it quickly charges to 100% and will run for a while.

    Originally it ran 6-8 hrs without charging. Now having the problems
    above.

    Any in sights or remedy would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    If you can still get into the settings you should Reset the device and then after you re-set up the device you should try updating it again.
    Hope that it works for you
