Hello, I own a Samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1, and the version of Android is very old and is extremely slow. It says I don't need updates. Any way for me to put a newer version of android or something faster on it?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Of course, but you’ll have to root the tab, then install a custom version of android.

There are plenty custom roms, like cyanogen for example.
Some tutorials on the net can help you with this, but note it can harm the tab if you don’t follow instructions.

    Not possible. After checking updates, if it says no updates are required, then it is indicated that, this tab does not have capability to load new updates/ new version of android OS. Probably its time to change this tab/ continue work with the same tab.

    Most important is to find a custom ROM made for your model. and to have the experience to install custom ROMs. Search for cyanogen room for your tablet model.

    I have an older Galaxy tablet as well with the same problem. I can't upgrade the OS. Would not let me play some HD videos from YouTube. I broke down and purchased a new one with the latest OS and now the videos are no problem. Other than that I see no difference in speed.

    Don't break/throw it your old tab, better keep it for your basic works and buy latest one within your budget for advanced works.
