    Your best bet will probably be custom ROMs. They offer much personalization and after market free apps. I am currently running CyanogenMod version 10.1 - which is based on JB 4.2

    Good luck with your flashing - it can be addictive :)

    PS - I grab all my custom stuff over at XDA Developers - here is a quick link to the Tab 2 forums, should you not already have it http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1596

    Regards,

    I think sung sonic is the best in my opinion it has a stock look out the box but there are 2 great themes that you can install for that different look I'm using the mixed sense theme is great
