How to flash CM10.2 on your tablet

  1. Proceed with the rest of our tutorial by completing the necessary steps. The first of them will need this from the owner of the Tab 2 10.1 P5100: use your tablet’s USB cord to enable a connection between it and your notebook, then transfer both zip files from the latter to the tablet’s SD card root (leave the files unzipped).
  2. Then unplug the tablet from the laptop, turn the former off and then enter it in Recovery Mode by pressing + holding Power + Volume Up together, let go of Power when you spot the Android logo and then hold only Volume Up.
  3. Now make a full NANDroid backup by doing as follows: opt for “Backup&Restore“, wait until another screen appears, then choose “Backup“.
  4. Return to the device’s Recovery Menu, choose Factory Reset/Wipe data, confirm by tapping “Yes”, return to the Recovery Menu, choose Wipe Cache Partition and then opt for Wipe Dalvik Cache.
  5. The next action should go like this: opt for both “Install zip from SD card” and for “Choose zip from SD card“. Next up: choose the CyanogenMod 10.2 archive with “Power” and confirm this in the following manner: opt for “Yes – Install cm-10.2-20130903-NIGHTLY-p5100.zip“.
  6. When you’re all done with the confirmation, you should redo what you performed for the flashing of the CM10.2 Jelly Bean 4.3 Nightly Build ROM so that the Google Apps files are also on your tablet. Wait until these packages are on your Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 P5100, then return to the gadget’s Recovery Menu.
  7. To restart the tablet, you must opt for the “Restart” key. Your device will then enter the update firmware in a matter of minutes. The new custom ROM is on your gadget’s “About tablet“. Launch it after you are sure it’s on your tablet and experience all of its bonuses.

Don’t forget that you can always revert to your device’s old ROM if you aren’t a fan of the one you just flashed. The way to get that tool back is shown here: boot your tablet into Recovery, then choose “Backup&Restore“, opt for the said ROM when you see it on a list and the latter will appear on your gadget after a bit of waiting.
