Default How to Upgrade my Tab 2 7.0 P3113 from 4.1.1 to 4.2.2

Just want to know the best way to go about doing this, wary of my google search results, sites seem sketchy. My Tab is not rooted, I don't mind flashing data. I'm in Canada so I cannot upgrade thru kies or OTA.

If you want to keep it completely stock, no root, the easiest (or, maybe the only) way is to download stock 4.2.2 ROM and flash with Odin. You can check sammobile or samsung-updates, but getting the file might be a hassle after all that recent mess with changing file hosting from hotfile...

MeMO Pad HD 7 ME173X, rooted stock 4.2.2

To whom it may concern: STOP nagging about pressing the freakin' Thanks button!!! It is rude, stupid, and annoys the hell out of people. I am not an idiot who needs a huge in-my-face reminder to press it, and I will press it when I feel thankful, not because you asked for it!

Default Also Upgrading my Tab 2 7.0 P3113 from 4.1.1 to 4.2.2

I am also in Canada and looking for the 4.2.2 stock rom as well.

So far every listing I have searched for has been unsuccessful for getting the files due to hotfile shutdown or the other sites make you wait only to do nothing after clicking on the download buttons.

So please let me know if you find the 4.2.2 stock rom....

First come, first served - could be a traffic limit. This is not the latest one (the newest is CMK3), but it's what I've got.

I've never used odin, what version should I use. Also do I need to do a fatory reset before hand. Never done anything to my tab 2. Total noob.

Sorry, but you'll have to do some reading, since all these things have been explained many times. No point repeating it here. You can start with the Tab 2 FAQ:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2182096

Here is the thread about Odin and flashing tools in general, with version compatibility info, links, instructions, etc.:

The odin forum doesn't list the tab 2 in the compatibility list, which version of odin should I use.

I just checked my laptop, and I have version 3.07 -- looks like that's what I used for both Tab 2 and my old SGS2. I haven't used Odin for a very long time, so I forgot... 1.85 should work, too.
