Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Gets ICS Update
Users of T-Mobile’s version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will now enjoy Ice Cream Sandwich goodness. T-Mobile announced that the update to Android 4.0.4 is rolling out not via an over the air update but through Samsung Kies. Nonetheless, several users have stated that they had been able to get the update over the air, contrary to T-Mobile’s announcement.
The update requires users to have the latest version of the Samsung Kies software on a computer as well as 50% of battery life. As a warning, the carrier states in their official announcement that the update will wipe the layout on their Home Screen. They also advise that users back up their data in case any of these get lost during the updating process.
To get the update, users should go to Settings on the Menu Bar on their tablet, choose Applications, then development, then USB debugging. To go back from the Settings menu, they should give the Home key one tap.
The USB data cable should then be plugged from the device and into the computer. Then, the phone will give a notification and proceed with the installation. Updating frequently lasts for several minutes. The message“Firmware Upgrade Complete” normally appears to notify the user. Once the updating is done, users may detach the USB data cable.
