Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Ice Cream Sandwich Update Starts to Roll Out



The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Ice Cream Sandwich update roll out has apparently begun with several variants of the device reportedly receiving the update.

SamMobile is reporting that two variants of Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi model have begun to get their Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades today.

Specifically, owners of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the United Kingdom can now update their tablet with Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Additionally, owners of the Wi-Fi model in Italy can also upgrade their Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 with Ice Cream Sandwich starting today.

Both updates are available Over-the-Air as well as through Samsung Kies and either update process will take quite awhile as this is a large update that not only needs to be downloaded but installed as well.

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 ICS update has begun to roll out.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 joins the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and the Galaxy Tab 7.7 as Galaxy Tab tablets that have received the Ice Cream Sandwich update, in at least some regions.

The Galaxy Tab 8.9 remains without Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at the moment.

Those who own these tablets on carriers in America, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 included, have not yet seen the upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and as of yet, there is no time table for those updates to roll out.

The Wi-Fi models generally get the upgrades first which are then followed by the cellular variants.

In any event, this roll out is great news for Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners in both the UK and Italy and Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners in general as upgrades for other regions should not be too far behind.

      You don’t have to wait at all. Just update ur TAB with the following OTA update.

      Download the zip file. Unzip the tar.md5 file. Use ODIN to flash it..and all ur apps will be updated as well. So no need to factory reset before upgrade. I just did it for my HongKong version and it should work for ur Middle East one also…But if ur using any arabic language..I am not sure about the support though :) This is the official UK version and can be upgraded on top of any region Honeycomb 3.2

      What version did you use to update your gt-7510 to 4.0.4? I don’t see it on the list, only the other versions.
