Installing a custom recovery
  • Download Odin3 & Samsung USB Driver
  • Install the Samsung USB Driver, make sure to run the installer as an Administrator by right clicking on the installer and selecting "Run as Administrator"
  • Unpack Odin.zip with Windows or another archive manager like 7-zip or WinRAR
  • Open Odin3.exe
  • You now see the following program
  • Shut down your tablet
  • Enter download mode by pressing Volume UP (right button) + the Power button
  • You will now get a warning, press Volume Down (left button)
  • Now connect your tablet to your computer with the usb cable that was included with the tablet
  • Windows will now install drivers, this will take up to one minute
  • Odin should now say "<ID:0/005> Added!!", if not reinstall the USB Drivers
  • The hardest part is done
  • Now download the file with the same model

  • Now click "PDA" and select the downloaded file (.tar.md5 should be the extension)
  • Now press "Start"
  • Odin will now send the file to your tablet, this will take a few seconds
  • Odin should now look like this, your tablet should also restart after the process is done
  • To verify that it worked, turn off your tablet
  • Enter CWM recovery by pressing Volume DOWN (left button) + the Power button
  • You should now be in recovery!

Updating the Bootloader

Why updating the Bootloader?
  • If you're going straight from Stock ICS to a custom Jelly Bean or KitKat rom, this guide is strongly recommended
  • If you're already on Stock Jelly Bean, you can skip this guide

If you're using a ICS Bootloader on a Jelly Bean or KitKat rom, you may get graphical glitches
This guide explains how to install the Jelly Bean Bootloader without going back to Stock ICS and update to Stock Jelly Bean

===This part can be skipped if you followed the above guide already===
  • Download Odin3 & Samsung USB Driver
  • Install the Samsung USB Driver, make sure to run the installer as an Administrator by right clicking on the installer and selecting "Run as Administrator"
  • Unpack Odin.zip with Windows or another archive manager like 7-zip or WinRAR
  • Open Odin3.exe
  • You now see the following program

===Skippable part ended===
  • Shut down your tablet
  • Enter download mode by pressing Volume UP (right button) + the Power button
  • You will now get a warning, press Volume Down (left button)
  • Now connect your tablet to your computer with the usb cable that was included with the tablet
  • Windows will now install drivers, this will take up to one minute
  • Odin should now say "<ID:0/005> Added!!", if not reinstall the USB Drivers
  • The hardest part is done
  • Now download the file with the same model

  • Now click "PDA" and select the downloaded file (.tar.md5 should be the extension)
  • Now press "Start"
  • Odin will now send the file to your tablet, this will take a few seconds
  • Now you have a JB Bootloader and you're ready for JB or KitKat roms!
