Default [Q] Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Firmware Downgrading

Good day to all fellas',

Model Number: GT-P5210

I just upgraded to the newest android version 4.2.2, the flash player seems not to work. I tried all the methods and still can't make it work. So, I am planning to downgrade from 4.2.2 to 4.1.x but can't find a firmware.

Any help:
How to get flash player work on 4.2.2?
or
How to downgrade Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 from 4.2.2 to 4.1.x?

Any help is appreciated.

Who will help me will receive a little Christmas present from me

Sorry, but I'm old to Android stuff but new to ODIN and Samsung. I expect to be hard to downgrade as you also need to downgrade EVERY aspect of your SGT3, including ones you're using to flash. However, it's theoretically possible.

But as of Flash Player, use Dolphin browser. That should work with Flash.

You can goto samfirmware.com and get a the 4.1.x and install it using odin. The goto settings and make sure you don't have it auto update. Is freaky simple as I've done it myself with no issues. So do I get a Christmas present?

I went on samfirmware.com and there is no 4.1 or nothing below 4.2.2.

HAH GA................... Oh wait, we shouldn't.

Well yes, you should try using Dolphin browser. Locate it on GPlay or get it as an apk somewhere.
