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 such as contacts, messages, photos, videos, etc
- 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.
