Update Galaxy Tab 2 GT-P3113 to Jelly Bean 4.1.1 build XARCLI

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 GT-P3113 is still among the gadgets that don’t get to enjoy the full benefits that the new Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OS offers. But if you do want your device to be given this great opportunity, we will instruct you on how to use this operating system on your own device. And you don’t need to be a pro to install the software we will discuss here.

There are a couple of ways to bring the newest Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean on your Galaxy Tab 2 GT-P3113. One of them is a software version update named XARCLI. This option was leaked a while back, much to our pleasure, and ulterior tests proved it to be good. But still, we should tell you that you may not be safe from bugs and other issues which arise from an unofficial goodie. And either way, if you are not too sure whether to install such tricky software, you can always wait for the official version. But if your impatience got the better of you, we will show you how to install the XARCLI on this tablet.

Not until we warn you about some things that should be taken into account. Like the fact that this unofficial firmware was released for the GT-P3113. And that it is dangerous to use it on another tablet, because you run the risk of damaging that other device. For which we will not be held responsible.Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-2-GT-P3113
