When it comes to giving power users the software ammo needed to tinker with their devices, Samsung has set a pretty good example for other manufacturers — though admittedly there are a few things that still need to be worked on.
At this point, it’s no longer a surprise to see Samsung releasing more source codes for its devices, the latest of which belong to the AT&T variant of Galaxy Note 2, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, and the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
Just as it has done in the past, the source code is often released prior to the device’s availability in the market. The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for AT&T, for example, won’t be out for a few more days. Nevertheless, those who like to take a peek into the Jelly Bean goodness inside the phablet can already do so.
As for the duo Galaxy Tab 2.0 tablets, the released firmwares contain some sweet jellies as well. Although the official Android 4.1 update for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and 10.1 hasn’t been pushed out yet by Samsung, we’ve seen Jelly Bean leaks for the former.
The source codes may not mean much for casual users, but it’s a telling sign that Samsung is preparing to roll out the Jelly Bean software update for the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 real soon. That’s your cue to jump for joy.
