The stock Android 4.1.2 OTA Update firmware is being pushed out today for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus. At the moment, this update has been pushed out for Austria but we’re expecting new reports from other countries, too. This is the first major update from Android 4.0.4 ICS and most owners should update their device right away to this first Jelly Bean release.
This OTA Update will take your device to a whole new interface that should take your tablet from ICS and install the first Jelly Bean build that was released for tablets. You will get all the Google Now service, Profiles, gesture typing, advanced voice search with offline support, expandable notifications and multiple others.
Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OTA Update has been pushed today for Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus devices in Austria while all the other countries should receive the update it the next few days. This build has the March 25 date and its firmware variant is P6200XXMC3, which means that it will work for the P6200 model, while the P6210 variant has to wait and see if the update will be available for it.
This is the third Android OS that the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus featured. The first one was the Android 3.2 Honeycomb, second was Android 4.0.4 ICS and now the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The update will be pushed out for stock tablets, while the rooted ones won’t be supported by the update. You might have to use ODIN and flash the stock firmware file over the previous ICS Android 4.0.4 OS.
If your tablet is 100% stock Android OS but you didn’t get the OTA Update notification, then you can open Settings, then About tablet menu and check the info listed under System Updates. If you’re told that an update is ready to be downloaded, then confirm this process and then wait until the install it complete. Note that your device might restart during the updating process.
