The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10 has been temporarily put out of commision thanks to Apple’s court appeal. The Galaxy Tab 7.7, however is going good and it’s set to get even better with the Android version 4.1 Ice Cream Sandwich finally ready to be installed in Samsung’s seven inch tab. Samsung had, not too long ago, announced that it’s Galaxy Tab 7.7 would get the Ice Cream Sandwich update sometime in the month of July or August. But considering that most Ice Cream Sandwich update rollouts were delayed for other Samsung devices, no one expected the update to be available this early in July. Never the less, Galaxy tab 7.7 owners are more than happy.
So, if you are wondering why you have not received a prompt, informing you about the update being available for installation, it’s because the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is not going to be an over the air one. You will have to install it with the assistance of Samsung’s Kies PC software. If you do not have a copy of the Samsung software installed yet, download one from the given link and install it on a Windows desktop or laptop. Once your Galaxy Tab 7.7 is connected to your PC, it is an easy process of hitting a couple of buttons on Kies and you will soon be served the Ice Cream Sandwich treat on your Galaxy Tab 7.7.
In case you do not have access to a PC or if you use a Mac at home, then worry not because the guys from SamMobile have made the Ice Cream Sandwich operating system installation file available for direct download at this link.
However, there is a catch to it. Currently, the ICS update is only available for the GT-P6800 model, in other words, for those living in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, and the UK. Galaxy Tab 7.7 GT-P6810, however is listed in Samsung’s official update information website and so we are sure that if you wait for a couple of more days, the updates will be available for all models.
