  1. This cm10 firmware is not yet official as ylu can see the file name has an unofficial, i tried already this one but the rotation of the screen has a problem the bluetooth also. Also if you call your tablet with a cm10 firmware it stocks and cant open my tab, i need to restart it again and again, when the time cones that im already pissed off i search for ICS firmware and i did it! With odin, it works great and nice faster that the honeycomb, you all should try it.. :))

  2. I got as far as ‘choose zip from sdcard’ and realized I copied to external SD not internal. I couldn’t find the zip file. Now my Tab won’t boot up and I can’t access anything on it. HELP PLEASE!

    • try to download ODIN and the official GT P-6200 adroid update i think this will solve your problem updating the SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB 7 PLUS

  3. i won’t buy samsung anymore…htc better, it has fast response towards update than samsung…i am very much disappointed with my galaxy tab 7 plus. how can samsung let its tab 2 has the recent jelly bean update when tab 7 plus specification is way much better? it is absurd i don’t think samsung is serious in developing android as its OS.

  4. Is there a buggy ?
    I’ve tried use custom rom from xda cs jb 4.1.1.
    Bluetooth doesnt work and the device has no signal.
    External storage cant be detected

    • There is still the same bugs as cm10,bluetooth doesnt work,issues with wifi and phone,about the external storage it can be located at a different folder when you grant superuser on file manager
