How to update Galaxy Tab to Android 2.3 Telstra Australia
Let me remind you that this update will work out for the users who have purchased Galaxy Tab 7 inches version from Telstra Australia only. Here is how you would be updating with that firmware –
- In order to perform the update you need to have the official firmware update installed of Samsung KIES.
- Now launch the KIES application on your PC and then connect your Galaxy Tab using the USB cable provided with the kit.
- Let the KIES detect your TAB and it would be shown in the device in KIES. Click on the device when its shows in the Connected Devices tab.
- Check out for firmware update whether it’s available or not.
- Click on the Firmware update.
- After that you would be asked to back up your data using the KIES. The update might not cause any data or loss of setting but it’s always better to be on a safer side. Also its highly recommended that you go through this firmware update process on the Wi-Fi network because the update file size is more than 800 Mb and this is highly impossible with slow internet connection or 3G connection.
- Then your Galaxy TAB would be automatically rebooted and would get in download mode and the update files would be transferred to your device from the PC.
- Once that is done, your device would be rebooted and it will take some time to boot up your device for the first use with the new firmware update.
- Now to check back whether the firmware update was done successfully, go to your Tablet Settings, then selecting About Device and check the firmware update version.
Please note that this update is not for any other version of Samsung and if you are trying with other tablets, KIES willn’t show any firmware update available.
