We will be using ODIN to update Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 P5110 to XXCLK7 Android 4.1.1. Before starting out we would recommend you to make back up of your data and also check the related drivers. Do check if the Android 4.1.1 USB drivers for Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 are installed properly before connecting the device with the computer.
Once the connection with computer is established, try always backing up your data to thwart any chances of data loss. Backing up your data is always very important before you install any new custom ROM or an official firmware update. You can make a back up of your SMS messages, contacts, Google data, apps, GPRS and 3G settings and even WhatsApp messages. One way of doing that is by using Samsung KIES. But when you do the backup manually, you get more options of choosing from what to store and also multiple options of moving data across many Android devices. If your device is already installed with a custom recovery like ClockworkMod or TWRP then it would create a complete image of your present state of tablet – most recommended.
A few more tips to consider before installing the latest XXCLK7 Android 4.1.1 for P511- models includes charging up your Android device up to 80-85% battery level. It is important because if your battery dies during the flashing process, your tablet can very much get bricked or go dead permanently which is a very high prize to pay! Also, make sure to follow the installation instructions properly, for example, if the firmware update is for unlocked Android devices, do not try it with phones and tablets which are locked to a carrier.
Follow these few tips before you update Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 P5110 to XXCLK7 Android 4.1.1 and you are always on the safe side. Please note that the official warranty expires when you root your Android device.
