    I was under the impression that Jellybean (v4.2.x) was out for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1.

    I have it for the 7.0 tablet...

    Is there a special place in Sprint's site where I can get it, or something, or will I have to root the device and install it illicitly?

    Huh.

    Was it straight OTA, or did you have to force it?

    It was straight. I just booted up tablet one day and it started downloading. Other thing you can do N is install samsung kies software on a computer off their website, connect device and update that way.

    Huh. Kies says it can't update firmware on my machine.

    Gotta love Sprint...

    After some research, it all falls down to just one announcement by Sprint.

    It looks like, to me, that someone got a little dyslexic with their numbers, announcing Android 4.2.1 OTA push rather than 4.1.2, which is the latest I have on my tablet.

    This I based on the fact that the firmware they mention in the announcement matches the firmware listed in my device, it's just the last two numbers reversed.

    My problem is just that I was hoping to be able to take advantage of the multiple profiles feature that came out with 4.2.x.

    Frankly, I doubt Sprint will push the firmware any further... they are pretty lackadaisical about updating any equipment more than a year old or so.
