    1. Dah, you have a problem then, resolve it at your own. That is too easy.. even kids can do it. lolz!

  1. I rooted my tab using the above said method! It is actually rooted! but…! I have some problems! the applications that I installed on my tab can be installed easily! but the problem is that when I open them, the screen goes black! I can’t do anything! I have to reset the tab and after reboot when I open any of my installed apps the same thing repeats! any suggestion?

  2. Worked great on my GT-P6200 with ICS. Thanks because all the other ways had failed. Yours was the only one that worked so 2 thumbs up:)

  3. I have GT-P6200 and working with s/w ver 3.2. I m a very basic user and appreciate if u cud advise steps to upgrage to the next version. I tried s/w update but if fails. Appreciate your support for advising the url to download the new s/w ver as well.

    1. Flash the stock ROM from the source link of this post. Flash it with Odin same flashing the CWM recovery instructions
      or Google this phrase “upgrade P6200XXMC3 Samsung Galaxy Tab Plus 7″ GT-P6200 Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean”

    1. There is a SuperSU and Busybox Root method which can be flash via stock recovery – no need of computer. Tested on I9100 and N7000 But never tested on P6200.

  4. Love you guys. This is amazing. It worked and I got Jelly bean update. I am not a IT person or someone who knows about phone. I took a risk and did it. It’s cool this works. Amazing need some time to get use to it.

  5. I need help now. My Tab worked fine and it got stuck in the morning. It restarted but again stuck. It happened about 10 times and I manage to start it. Later I tried to restart it again it went off. Again I managed to start it. Now it works fine but I am scared to restart or off it now since I am not sure whether this thing will repeat. Please if someone can help me that would be great. Can I do a factory reset? Will I get my data back if I do that

  6. this is not working for me. i tried atleast four times but failed. anyway keep up the good work.

  7. Hello tnx for your awesome site.
    all the guidance was great but I have to say a little thing:
    my device couldn’t found the zip file and I coppied the file into the storage of the device and reboot again then my device found a file and the installation process got done.
    If you face this little problem do the work I do.
