    I have the one from Verizon and I have not heard when this tablet will be or if it will ever get the Jelly bean update. Does anybody have any idea if or when this will happen?

    The short answer is, I think it is coming, but I don't know when.

    Certain versions of the Tab 2 in certain regions of the world are getting Jelly Bean now... Samsung seems to do what every other android company does as far as announcing releases... One of the following:

    1) Not announced, sometimes will be released without announcement.
    2) Announced, with a release date of "Coming Soon" or similar.
    3) Announced with a release date of "Released" for something that has already shipped.

    Even though some reliable sites report being told by Samsung that JB was coming for the Tab 2, there is no indication of tablet releases on the Samsung site. Therefore, I am thinking we will fall under #1, possibly followed by #3.

    However, there are people trying to determine how to downgrade from JB... Apparently, they don't like the one size fits all aspect of JB (same layout on a 7" tab as on a phone).

    Personally I love my JellyBean on my Samsung Galaxy S3, and now I have a Samsung Tab 2 7.0 from Verizon being delivered to me on Friday, and I had hopes that Jellybean would be pushed out to these tablets. I just love how Jellybean looks/operates.

    I have just got the OS upgraded to Jelly Bean on my Samsung Tab 2 and it is not as great as I would have hoped for.

    A few minor irritants spoil the overall experience.

    The major issue is how much the native 'email' application lags. It takes forever to load and sometimes it hangs the phone.

    Earlier there was a widget that would pin a single email account on the home screen. I use multiple accounts and this was very helpful. Now this is gone.

    The notifications now drop from the top instead of being in the bottom right corner. This is extremely frustrating as it makes using the tab more cumbersome.

    Also a few minor irritants include the fact that now I cannot have the 'screenshot' option on the home screen. I take loads of screenshots and it is a pain now. Don't know if there is another way to do it.

    When you want to go to the phone; earlier there were separate options on the screen for 'keypad', 'contacts', 'favorites', etc. Now this is on the top left corner in a drop down. Again; more cumbersome to reach and need two 'touches' instead of one.

    Despite de-selecting screen rotation; the screen still rotates. This seems to be a bug.

    I am extremely frustrated and I don't know if there is an official feedback that I can send to the guys developing the version for this device. I would highly recommend users who email a lot to stay away from this upgrade as it has messed up the email application.

    Ok so you have the ability to get JB on you Samsung Galaxy tab 2 7.0 and you down graded to the ICS? Do you have the Wifi version. I ask because I have mine from Verizon and I am waiting to get it to try out myself!
    12-30-2012 05:14 PM

    Yep, and yes it's the Wifi version. If you upgrade to JB and don't like it you can go back to stock ICS via here

    I just wish I knew how to stop the annoying update messages. JB 4.1 on the Tab is woeful IMO.

    If you have the P3113 model then here is the link to the revert instructions. Only for the 3113 model.
    [HOWTO][P3113] Revert to Stock Android 4.0.4 ICS build UEBLH2 - xda-developers
    It does work I have done it. If you revert back you will need to trun off the update feature by doing this;

    Settings / Application Manager / All / Software Update
    After clearing the data on the second entry, it disappeared, leaving only one left, which pretty obviously was the Software Update app.
    So.... Heck, just go into it and hit the "Disable" button.
    Job done
