  1. why doesnt it look like jelly bean?! why does it look like ICS?! I want the jelly bean look! what should I do?

    1. the look depends on the samsung touchwiz, if you want a more nexus look, flash a custom rom like cyanogenmod.

  2. DroidAngel! I’m not complaining to you! I’m blaming Samsung!
    Rasmus1979! I know! I’ve used a custom Rom by Aroth from Xda Developers. but the problem is that the wifi and bluetooth and also USB does’nt work correctly! Plus the font in File manager part of this Rom is too small. I hope they correct these problems so that I’ll never wait for any Samsung update!

    1. i’m so disappointed to the max with the long way waiting JB that really failed me, only few added options that can be found in any custom rom. the big issue in that release is the font. it really bugging me to the shit. i will roll back to ICS . one more thing. ICS is pretty smoother than JB. i really hope that it’s not only who has these issues, otherwise i’m illusioning.

  3. Hi Guys,

    I had some troubles to upgrade my Tab from 3.2 to 4.1.
    let me give your some tips ;-)
    1. Install the Samsung Drivers or KIES (it includes the drivers).
    2. Run Odin in Administrator Mode -> right click on the appl -> Run As Administrator
    3. Be sure to PUSH on POWER ON AND VOLUME DOWN !
    at first I pushed on power and volume + …. I was in recovery mode and not in download
    mode…. As it was my first upgrade, I didn’t know I was in a wrong mode ;-)

    I was surprised that the upgrade kept all my settings (wifi, contacts, sms, applications) !
    It’s great !

    I noticed only 2 negative points after the upgrade :
    - it’s not possible to choose anymore the Android Keyboard, we have to use the Samsung one :-(
    - In the browser, the link bar don’t disappear after some seconds, so we loose 2 lines in the dispay of the webpage.

    Expected that, all is great :-)

    1. any concerns about fonts ? it is so miserable.
      i missed too the long press home button that gives quickly the task mngr,
      i guess it’s just another ICS with a new touchWiz. that’s all

  4. I successfully updated my wife Galaxy tab GT-6200 to 4.1 JB the only thing i notice on the first place why is it does not connect to Odin because of loose connection on the USB cable i got a new one and after the software downloaded it reboot and updated itself to 4.1. I did not boot in the recovery mode anymore after it rebooted the picture above is the one i seen.

    about the device GT-P6200 and send me the link ( Website )

    Thx

    1. Hi there Mohammad, there is no official Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean for the Middle East Galaxy Tab GT-P6200 for now. As far as I’m concerned if you can read this post carefully, this is only released in Austria so far. What you need to do is wait until Samsung came up with 4.1.2 jelly Bean for Arab nations.

  7. can saomeone help,after i flash this firmware i encounter a problem, my tab is heating badly.can someone help me? i will be glad to hear from all of you thanks in advance

  8. My tablet was successfully updated, but I often need to take a screenshot and I couldn’t find a way to do that now. Is the feature being removed?

    1. Many mobiles of samsung having jb 4.1.2
      They dont provide a direct button or a widget or link to take a screenshot.
      What u need to do in these is as below..

      Presss the lock button + the volume down button simultaneously for fraction of seconds and u will notice a 3mm white flash frame on the edge of the whole display.
      There u have a notification u have taken a screenshot.
