This guide is for advance users only, those who have rooted and installed with modified firmware on their Galaxy Tab 2 GT-P3113 and having issues updating via OTA or Kies. Ordinary users may only update via OTA or Kies and do not use this method, for your Galaxy Tab 2 still runs with official firmware and you can simply update without facing any issues.

This is also useful to unroot or restore back your Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to official factory firmware.
Disclaimer: Though this method is proven safe but you may use this guide solely at your own risk!

- Make sure the battery is fully charge
- Make a back-up copy of all important files stored from your device.
- If you came from custom ROM and wants to restore back your Galaxy Tab 2 to completely stock, perform wipe data via custom recovery first to avoid bootloop issues.
- If you installed Samsung’s Kies software, make sure it is closed and not running on system tray.
- Use the supplied USB cable of your Galaxy Tab 2, failures in flashing is caused by a bad USB cable.

  1. I know that you posted this quite a while back, but it ended up being my salvation last night. Samsung updated my Galaxy Tab 2 (GT-P5113) to 4.2.2 and crippled a few of my apps that I cannot live without. I love 4.1.1, and I was so frustrated with not being able to do what I wanted to do with 4.2.2. So, I went looking on how to downgrade. I had never rooted a device before, and your walkthrough was spot on! There is one mistake get into "download mode" you have to hold the power button and the UP volume button, not the DOWN. I found that out on another site, once I realized it wasn't getting me there. Otherwise, it was a godsend and I thank you! Be well and thanks again!

  2. I can't believe you've rolled back to 4.1.1 without even aware if there is new a bootloader included from 4.2.2, thank's for the head-ups that's great!.

  3. Hello Bradley,

    I am disappointed with this version 4.2.2 and am looking for a way to back to version 4.1.1. I see you've got. Please you can tell me the manual steps I have to follow and ODIN software versions I have to use.

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    Thank Wilma Dee

  4. thank you. now i can restore !!please keep alive 4.2.2 is no good here

  5. P.S. All the instructions below presume you've already extracted the files from the winzips you downloaded. Best save them all into the same folder.
