South Korean company Samsung previously confirmed it would offer Jelly Bean upgrades for some of its Galaxy Tab slates, but we’re still not sure exactly when the update might arrive for these tablets.Usually Samsung releases open source files right after these upgrades are pushed OTA (over the air) to its devices, but this time the company made an exception, or a mistake.
The folks over at AndroidPolice report Samsung has already released Android 4.1 Jelly Bean open source files for Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.
The weird thing is Samsung has yet to launch Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates for Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 in most countries.
It’s possible that Samsung will start rolling out the Jelly Bean upgrade for both Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 in the following weeks, though we’re still waiting for more info on this one.
All in all, those who wish to tinker with the new open source files can download Jelly Bean for Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (GT-P3100) and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 (GT-P5100) via Samsung’s open source site.
In the same piece of news, the South Korean company also released the Jelly Bean open source files for AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note II. Check it out here.
These open source files will help Android devs and the tech-savvy to cook customized ROMs and variations of the platform as they see fit.
Samsung Galaxy Note II has been recently launched in the US via multiple carriers, including AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile USA. In fact, AT&T should start selling the Samsung’s Android flagship smartphone today, November 6th.
Major carrier Verizon Wireless is expected to launch the Galaxy Note II as well, but the Big Red will release the smartphone much later this month.
