I'm happy with Honeycomb and will wait for reports from other users. Let's see what goodies Ice Cream Sandwich bring to the Tab 7.7

    Nice ,fast. N smooth… only don have malay language… just updated now n no need wait till malaysia version.. cox austria version is unlock version.. don worry the sim card lock problem

      adni

      Dah sampai malaysia, baru je update tadi, just direct online tak payah guna kies

    zam

    I update using Kies , unfortunately fail as it stated "downloading…do not turn off target" something like that..could not proceed , turn on/off..fi nally I sent it to SC at PJ the same day. Just received back from them.(after 3 days)..bad news..i've lost all my previouse files (pictures,videos,games, antivirus, installed app ,etc..) 🙁 But the good news is they have already updated my GT-P6800 to ICS Andriod 4.0.4..very smooth, fast, add features such as driving mode,mobile data,software update direct to mobile, etc..

Well It's not available in Malaysia through Kies yet.

Only australia and few europian countries got it.
hope to get it soon in malaysia too.

    Bruce

    Sorry guys I correct myself! it's austria ( in europe ) not australia !
    anyway, hope we can get the ICS soon in Malaysia.

    all the best for 7.7 users!

ann

Canot update ICS

kira

Not yet available in Asia officially…u can get unofficially by flashing

dean

i just flash it yesterday..nice, so far no problem… 🙂
download it from here http://www.sammobile.com/firmware/?page=8&vie…

    JeremyLow

    how did you update/ flash 7.7? pls share. i downloaded the file from your link already. thanks! 🙂

Always 1 version behind. Judge from the efficiency of hackers out there to come out custom ROM, Samsung will be faster to roll out new updates if they hire 1 or 2 of them.

    awesomo

    Samsung already did that awhile back… http://www.engadget.com/2011/08/16/cyanogenmod-fo…

      Erm, thanks for dig up the 1 year ago info. Seems like he is either being put into fridge, or just not enough.

        awesomo

        You do realise that the release timing of updates has absolutely nothing to do with Samsung's technical ability right? There are internal testing and QA processes to go through, obtaining carrier approval, streamlining with business requirements, ensuring that whatever improvements or new features align with the feature roadmap, etc. So as you can see, it takes quite a bit more than just a couple of rom hackers

        Also, remember that Samsung (and every other OEM for that matter) would rather sell you a brand new device, instead of continuously providing updates which nevertheless garner consumer goodwill but does nothing for their bottom line.

Waiting list for 8.9… ZZzzzzzz

awey

Updated to ics. It works like charm. Get it from sammobile

    Bruce

    How is the battery life? well I wait for the Malaysia Rom as it the one in sammobile belongs to europe, it will void my warranty too.

      awey

      Battery is excellent. Full charge for 1 day movie on tab. Ics very smooth just a little lag doesnt matter completely far better than sluggish HC

Samsung is always slow! Thts why their tab 10.1 got banned in US, whereas nexus push updates quicky to escape
If i have other choice, i will not buy third party android again, especially samsung. Trush me, i have bad experience with samsung..got the first generation of tab p1000, and r stuck with gb. this could b the last update from samsung for the above mentioned tabs http://www.phonearena.com/news/Appellate-court-te…

    Bruce

    there are No doubts that samsung is slow in terms of updates, but the reason Tab10.1 was banned was not the updates dude! it was the very similar design of this tab to ipad.

    What do you mean by "third party android" ?!

    P1000 belongs to 2010 in which ICS was not yet even out! what you say is like I conplain nokia why my Nokia 6630 is not updated to belle now!

    you asked everybody to trust you! I don't !

am4ro

what happen to galaxy tab 7.0 plus ics please samsung get here asap!!
thank soyacincau 4 the update keep it all the news regard of galaxy tab

lolcat

why dont they release the update to Asia first at least once… So tired of waiting everytime… Also, can i revert to original state after flashing Europe ICS ROM.

How about galaxy tab 10.1? No news?

fam

updated ics4.0.4

meow

galaxy 7.7… ics updated.. 😀 rasa besar pulak icon2 ni

opt321

ada masalah ler dgn ics ni.. tadi dah updated, bila cuba wifi kejap ada kejap x der.. korang ada masalah nie x?

exzi

Already update mine P6800 with ICS. Tab gonna more stable in memory usage but some application will be fail to functioning. i.e.camscanner HD

opt321

sekarang ini, saya terpaksa hantar ke pusat service. biar jurutera mereka pikir masalah ini.. kalau tahu ada masalah, tak payah hantar updated dari samsung kies. menyusahkan pelangan saja. nasib baik saya warranty belum habis lagi. kepada sesiapa yang nak updated ics 4.0.1, pastikan backup fail anda. sekurang-kurangnya boleh balik sistem asal honeycomb 3.2.1 cara hard reset. saya dah ter updated. so semua dah tiada. reset pun still jadi ics.

Dh update ics tuk tab 7.7 tp layan F.B jd cm tab jd pening lak..kadang2. Proseser jd cm slow..cm nk hang pn ada..adakah masalah mmg cmni?
