Android 4.0 now rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v

Vodafone Australia have today confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1v will be receiving Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” in the form of an over-the-air update from today onwards. While it still isn’t the latest version of Android (4.1 “Jelly Bean”), at least you’ll be finally off the tablet-specific Android 3.1 “Honeycomb”.

The update is a staggered-release, so if the update isn’t ready for you today, it will certainly be available in the coming days. There’s no confirmed size for the update, though, as always, we highly recommend charging the battery to full and connecting to a stable internet connection before downloading/apply the update. Let us know how you go in the comments 🙂

  1. Got my G-7100 updated over the weekend. Beware that it takes a good deal of time regardless of network speed because of filechecks etc., in contrast to other updates to my mobile’s Android OS.

    Has anyone had freezing ans crashing issues post update? My tab now freezes then the screen goes black while the backloght stays on at apparently random times. It’ll even do that when just locked down on standby. This means the battery goes dead daily because I find my tab has drained its battery on its own thanks to this freeze and backlight issue. Today, I’ve tried cleaning up my app list with apps that may be running in the background and freezing. So far it has not died yet!

    Otherwise the update is great. All the features of ICS works okay with no crippling wifi, 3G, or camera issues and the tab runs faster than on honeycomb.

      Same here. Updated my GT-P7100 to ice cream sandwich a good month ago and have since been experiencing lousy battery life and lock-ups from standby with backlight on.
      Hopefully this gets solved soon

  2. Just updated my 10.1v to ICS. The update size is 157.2MB, and once it’s downloaded, the installation and upgrade process took less than 5 minutes. The most visible change is the new Roboto font, which looks great and the Blue theme, which might take some time to get used to. The App drawer is slightly revamped with a transition effect and has the widgets option at the top. Slide to remove apps and notifications works great. The new camera interface is great, with settings easily accessible and also has a Panorama mode built in.The tablet does appear to be more responsive and faster and no force-closes till now. Best bit’s being able to use the Chrome app which makes browsing great.

  3. No news for the P7500 either. If only I could get 3g working on CM9/10, then I wouldn’t have this problem

  4. Still no update for gt-p7510 wifi? What’s going on?
