Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0
Owners of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 are in for a treat this morning, thanks to a new software update rollout for Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. If you recall, back in January, the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean software update for it was released. Now users of one of Samsung’s most popular 7-inch tablets can upgrade the software on their devices yet again.

Currently, the software update is said to be rolling out in phases. So if you own a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 yourself, don’t worry if you still haven’t received an upgrade notification on own device. It probably just isn’t available for those in your country yet, but it should be very soon. According to the official firmware details, the software update goes by build number JZO54K. It can be facilitated through Samsung KIES or via an over-the-air (OTA) download.

It’s best to wait until you get an official notification to upgrade before checking for the latest software on your device. In the meantime, you may prepare by making sure that your tablet is fully charged in order to avoid any hiccups during the actual upgrade process, that is once you begin.
