Settings -> About Tablet - > check for updates....
LOL, it IS the 5th if yer on the East Coast.
I've been playing around with the new touchwhiz interface and it seems to be pretty good so far. Remember you can access the samsungdive.com website and remote wipe, located, and lock your tablet from your computer if you happen to loose it. The features are nice. I just wish the screen capture was in a different place. I have hit is accidently about 10 times in the last hour.
To get the update just go to settings and then about this device and then click on system update. The download is 188mb so it may take a while to download. Also during the installation you may see it hang after the download is finished but don't worry. IT will say to press here to reboot. When it reboots it will start writing the new firmware. That take a while. It took about 10 to 15 minutes. Also during the firmware upgrade it was hun at 75% for several minutes. I started to think it locked up on me but then it started again. It was slow going form 75% to about 86% and then 87 to 100 was fast.
I really like the interface. It is a nice improvement. I just wish they had upgrade to 3.2 like my Asus. There are some nice features like some of the widgets. The calendar is a BIG improvement. I use my calendar daily for making appointments and this new one is a lot nicer. Have fun with it and let us know if you find any tricks or exciting new features.
I was about to download at 11:45pm central USA time.
my install time was pretty long, i think it took almost an hour to update and it stayed on the samsung booting screen (glowing samsung logo) for about 15 minutes.
Anyone know when the LTE tabs are getting the update?
Yup, downloading here too. Most posts on xda developers foums are positiveso far. Many have confirmed the HORRIBLE keyboard lag is gone. Yay!
Update complete. Oh wow, the browser lag is GONE! Soooo much smoother!
yeah, sorta unnerves you.. from 0-18% in 5 seconds, then sits there for a long time... then 19-77 fairly fast.. then just sits there forever, and finally does that again a few more times before being done. gotta be patient with this one..
Go to Settings, About Tablet, Update. I'm doing it now.
More details please. Who is your provider? 7" or 10"? etc.
Just finished the update and....LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!
Mine is the Tab 10.1 WIFI version. Now it has a newer UI makes text more legible. There is also a screen capture button on the button left.
Patience is key..... At many moments I was in fear of devastation due to the apparent hangs. I do enjoy the new features and the clearer font.
i have a tmobile tab and dont have the "update" option
Looks like the Verizon 4G model doesn't have the update yet.
Anyone out there having problems with the media hub or media player for that matter? After signing in to my exisitng account and downloading movies previously bought, they do not play. Also movies I had previously downloaded (not media hub) seem to skip and repeat parts of the film.
I love the update. It makes the tab a bit more fun to use. It gets rid of honeycomb "Tron" theme to touchwiz cartoon theme. Haha
I don't like the browser now goes back to mobile page again. I tried about:debug but many sites still go to mobile page including YouTube.
the ui sucks... settings tab fonts and icons too big... all new apps calc, calendar etc looks soo ugly.... I some how did not like the update.. it looks soo ugly...
what is the real advantage... like the panning though
I dont like the update, it made my tab feel like I fisher price tab. I ended up exchaning my tab at bestbuy.
I don't think it is really all that different. If I choose the same old widgets and all that I had before, it really would look about that same. Not worth the effort of an exchange (at least to me). If I didn't like it I guess I would just go back to Beautiful Widgets at treat it like the update never happened.
.....but I like the new widgets!
I don't really care for it either so far, The bottom notification bar seems a little uglier to me. I have a replacement tab on the way for a screen problem, so this isn't a big deal I probably won't update again for a while.
I just don't see any benefits for myself to update. I am glad others like it though.
