    If I get a Galaxy 2 10.1 tab and it has Ice Cream on it, what do you have to do to upgrade to Jelly Bean? The tab is brand new from Wal-Mart but the description lists Ice Cream as the OS. Is it a simple upgrade or does it require rooting and flashing and all that? I've read about factory updates...hopefully it is that easy! :D

    To upgrade to JB, you either have to wait for SS to release the new Firmware, you can get on a list of Beta testers where they may add you to test the JB firmware beta release, or you could root your device and flash the latest JB firmware, hope this helps.

    I do not know how you get on the beta test list, maybe someone else will chime in on that.

    Hopefully, SS will roll out an update...I see the Galaxy S III phones are running JB (from Sprint, anyway). I am just not comfortable with rooting yet! :eek:

    Just wait it out, honestly for me personally JB isn't a better OS. The battery on my S3 drains alot faster on JB from ICS so I'm not in a hurry to see my Tab2 do that also.
