The tablet last witnessed an officially Android 2.3 Gingerbread update despite having sufficient hardware for later released Android version such as Android 4.0.4 ICS, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 is powered by a 1 GHz Cortex-A8 processor as well as have 512MB of RAM which make it capable to run Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean. So, if you feel bored with outdated Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread official stock firmware and want to try something better then you can try custom ROM CM10.1 that can upgrade your Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 (P1000 | P1000L | P1000N | SCH-I800 / SPH-P100) to latest Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean.

    how can it work in 2 models P1010 and P1000 if the drives are different since the P1000 and P1010 does not have 3g?
    Would not that be different roms?

    • arafat21

      As developer didn’t mention a particular model we assuming this work on both device. However, good thing is the developer now added separate file for P1000 | P1000L | P1000N | SCH-I800 / SPH-P100 but not P1010. We will update this article soon. Thanks for your input.

      • eybi

        Hi Sir arafat21, pls to ask if there is any bugs found in this version? or this is fully checked already for p1000? pls advise.. i really want to be sure that everything would be fine.. hope you could help us in our forum in this site too, if you would not mind.. thanks..

        http://www.tipidcp.com/viewtopic.php?tid=18425

        pls email me too at eybi022@yahoo.com thanks a lot..

  • stp

    I tried the p1 file on a GT-P1010. and it fails pretty fast with:assert failed

    getprop(“ro.product.device”) == “galaxytab” ||
    getprop(“ro.build.product”) == “galaxytab” ||
    getprop(“ro.product.device”) == “GT-P1000″ ||
    getprop(“ro.build.product”) == “GT-P1000″

    Installation aborted.

    IMHO there is no CM10.1 for a GT-P1010.

    please correct your article ( and do better investigations the next time).

    • arafat21

      Sorry! But you probably didn’t read it properly. The ROM only work on (P1000 | P1000L | P1000N | SCH-I800 / SPH-P100). We change it after @nn-studio report his concern earlier.

      • stp

        be sure, I did read properly. This page did yesterday still contains clear info that GT-P1010 is supported. The page is changed now.

        As I loaded the page yesterday the first time, it’s not a problem with my local browser.
        If you changed the article 2 or 3 day before, you publishing system did not deliver it ?!?

        Nevertheless, Why did the wrong info get into any article at all ? Aren’t you guys verifing what you publish ?

        • arafat21

          Well! We transferred to VPS yesterday. We notified it in our Facebook page. The developer of this ROM didn’t explicitly mentioned the supported device model so we take it general. Then when our reader point the fact, we again go to developer page and then collected more information. We always try our best to verify information but you should know we mostly depend on developer as it’s hard to own each device. We hope you understand it.

        • arafat21

          However, we do admit our mistake. We will try to be more careful next time. We really appreciate you for taking the issue in front of us. Do to the server transfer issue, you most likely see the old server page where we made the mistake and later fix it after the comment as said before.

    • arafat21

      We think, you didn’t received the updated page because we recently change our server and you may be seen an old page. However, we must thanks you for your concern and helping us to build a better website for Android users.

  • Prothean

    I was able to root and install the Cwm 10.1 rom as well as google aps. However when it rebooted it still went into the CwM based recovery v6. Now it has sideload started and I can’t seem to get out of this screen which says – Sideload started ……. Now send the package you want to apply to the device with “adb sideload “…
    I would appreciate any help as to solve this issue.

    • arafat21

      If you can boot into recovery then perform wipe cache and delvik cache few more times and see what happen.

      • Prothean

        Thank for you for your prompt response. I did what u suggested and was able to reinstall and boot into the cm boot. Its working quite nicely. Thanks once again.

        • arafat21

          You are welcome and enjoy your Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean experience.

  • anthony

    nice rom one or two ? how to stop rotate when phone call and things. how to enable navation bar and how to get into usb debug ?

  • anthony

    i have another p1000 that i installed the 4.2.1 an my apn stops no gsm call an service drops ? can u help me ? every thing else is working fine. THANKS

    • arafat21

      Can you manually enter your APN setting? Can you access your EMI number? You may be lost your EFS file. However, we see many complain the same, means it may be not that worst and next update of ROM may fixed it.

      • anthony

        yes i can enter apn but it disapeares an i can access my EMI number.what is EFS ? this i do not know. THANKS

        • arafat21

          EFS is a file where all your important phone information saved in Samsung device. If you corrupt it then your phone no longer receive any carrier data. The corruption usually happen due to flashing custom ROM, that also very rare. That’s why we always mention it in our ROM installation process in Samsung device. As you access IMEI number, means your EFS folder more likely ok. So the issue is related to ROM. Just developer fix this in next release.

          • anthony

            ok .THANKS

      • anthony

        i tried to manually enter it but no go

        • arafat21

          We updated the download link, try flashing it. You don’t require to perform wipe. If it still can’t fix thing then you have to wait for official CM10.1 or for any other Android 4.2.1 ROM. We really like to know what was your Android version before flashing CM10.1. That will allow us to fix the thing if possible.

          • anthony

            It has started to work since last note I left it on an plugged in. Here r some screen shots.

          • arafat21

            Good to see your device is now fully functional. Enjoy it.

          • anthony

            Also the versions I had were aokp milestone 6, HembrOS. Her 2.53 ,Spinal an Nitties really all that is out to flash.So all in all u were right about flashing different ROMs. I did not know about that.Thanks for the help.

  • Qomari Sigit P

  • Qomari Sigit P

    Can you help me, i can’t user my SCH I800 to internet connection, no logo 3G there.

    • arafat21

      We updated the firmware download link with latest build. Flash it. You don’t require to perform wipe if you flashing it over previous build. This may love your issue. Also, trying inputting APN setting manually if required.

  • robby soliva

    What are the risk of jellybean 4.2.1

    • arafat21

      It’s hard to roll back to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean ROM as 4.2.1 use different file structure due to multi-user feature. You can only move to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean ROM by first rolling back to official firmware.

  • Sebastien Delgrande

    Amazing work! Thank you very much.

    I installed the ROM on my Verizon i800. I have quite a bit of experience with 4.2.1 ports with my other devices and I can assure you that this experimental release is of the quality of some alphas out there.

    I could pair BT with my phone. Not the other way around though.

    I would be pleased to report issues if you wish. So far, I have:
    - Random reboot. Only happened once though. It is day 1 too…
    - No app drawer icon. Had to install another launcher. Seems to be a Trebuchet issue. Could it be related to tablet mode?
    - Gallery misinterpret some pictures as videos. These were taken with the devices camera (and this ROM). Pictures were fine until reboot.

    Thanks again. Let me know if I can help. Please keep it up.

    • arafat21

      The developer surely get help from your report. We will try to update the page weekly with latest release.

      • Sebastien Delgrande

        No other reboot and so far it has been a daily driver…

        Here is another bug I encountered:

        Email attachment of a .docx. Even with the proper app installed (Office Suite Pro) it will not do the file association. Same app opens pdf as attachment without problem. Did reboot, clean app cache and data but it won’t do it.

        • arafat21

          Thanks @Sebastien Delgrande for your effort. We really appreciate it.

          • Sebastien Delgrande

            Just installed the version published today. The 3 problems I reported are fixed. Brilliant!

          • arafat21

    Hi! Thank you for this writeup. I am very new to all of this and I tried to follow the How To Install CM10.1 Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean on Galaxy Tab 7 tutorial exactly. I made it to “ClockworkMod Recovery Installed” and am now stuck. Although the tutorial mentions my device, the sph-p100, the RecoverX v1.5.3.0 download does not have my sph-p100 listed nor does ROM Manager which is on a linked page. Please advise.

    • arafat21

      Give us 48 hours. We will try and find CWM recovery for your device and write an instruction on it.

    • fouquetp

      Before upgrading to CyanogenMod (or other non-official Samsung rom) you must Root and install Custom Recovery (step 5 of Important things to do in first page of the how to : Your device is rooted [Guide] and have ClockworkMod Recovery Installed [Guide].) If you don’t do it before it fail beacause official samsung recovery only allow samsung rom signed by them… and CM10 is of course not… ;)

  • Felice

    at first thank you for your effort to put that much work in those nice devices which are left behind by Samsung. Since I have a P1010 you would make my day, releasing a jelly-bean-Version for that device. Thank you in advance

  • Guest

    I tried all the steps. But all I have is a Galaxy Tab logo everytime I reboot. Help please. It’s frustrating.

    • arafat21

      Go back to CWM recovery and perform wipe cache partition and wipe dalvik cache partition then reboot again.

  • araf

    can i perform this without the external SD

    • arafat21

      You can’t as the steps will wipe your tablet internal memory data.

      • araf

        internal sd has nothing in it. I’ve accidentally formatted it.

        • arafat21

          Try to understand that when you perform wipe it will delete all internal data including the ROM file that you required to copy. So, how can you install it from internal memory!

          • araf

            OK thanks, so can I then try updating to 2.3 through odin. would that require external XD as well.

          • arafat21

            You can install firmware using ODIN. The process don’t require external SD.

          • araf

            Thank you very much. This discussion process really helped.

    • arafat21

      Try Wipe Cache Partition, Wipe Dalvik Cache and Factory Reset in Recovery. Since the developer stop updating the ROM, we have to try general fixes.

      • anthony

        OK . I just did it.But still no mobile network.Is their any type of file that I can flash ?

        • arafat21

          Can you tell us which network you are using and which country? We will try to find out if there is any flashable modem available for your device or not.

    HI, I used the following:

    The install and everything went well; but I’m missing the “application” icon in the drawer when it boots… So I really cannot get to the applications and the “google play-store” to install other apps.

    Any idea ?

    • arafat21

      If that is the case then we can’t help you to fix this. You should roll back to original firmware to use your device. Also, you can try other custom ROM if available.

            After checking the source we found CyanogenMod team yet to release any official CM10.1 for Galaxy Tab. The ROM we shared is unofficial ROM and developer didn’t updated the release since last December.

      Bluetooth is a problem as reported by several others in comment. Unfortunately, this is an unofficial build and the developer didn’t updated it since it releases. We are waiting for an official release. Till then you have to wait.

  • Remo

    Just making sure. Is there still a problem with bluetooth for p1000 devices? or is there an update already?

  • David

    Hello,
    I am not a wizard in this field but have had success with the following:

    * Started with a vanilla Samsung Galaxy Tab 1000 (not rooted, not tweaked in any way)
    * First I downloaded the CyanogenMod and google apps to the SD-Card of the device
    * Rooted the gadget with the tool Odin and the file CF-Root-TAB7_XX_OXA_JQ1-v3.3-CWM3RFS
    * Now follow the guide (next page) to load the Cyanogenmod 10 and wait patiently.

    And now the tablet booted into android 4.whatever-it-is which is really cool compared to 2.3
