Update Galaxy Tab P1000 to Android 4.3 / CM 10.2

Glad to hear that my old Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000 (the first Samsung’s Tablet) received CyanogenMod 10.2 nightly build which is based-on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Although the tablet has been more than 2 years old with me (released on October, 2010 – almost 3 years ago), but the device runs flawlessly till now.

UPDATE: There is unofficial release of CyanogenMod 13 which is based-on Android 6.0 Marshmallow available to download. You can follow our tutorial on how to install CyanogenMod 13 on Galaxy Tab P1000.

UPDATE: CyanogenMod 11 based-on Android KitKat 4.4.1 for Galaxy Tab GT-P1000 is ready. Go to this post (Update Galaxy Tab P1000 to Android 4.4 Kitkat) if you want to jump to install Android KitKat on Galaxy Tab P1000.

Previously I had rooted the device using ClockworkMod and installed the CyanogenMod 10.1 custom ROM (Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean). So if your tablet has not been rooted yet, try to search on how to do it.

  7. Hi guys, yes I’m sure about that I used cm 10.2 ROM. but now I’m using cm10.1 because of this issue. I’ll send u the cm10.2 roms links which I downloaded from different site but always facing same issue. I installed daily new cm10.2 ROM and hope ( now I didn’t face Skype issue ) but same. Then I reinsalled cm10.1. I have 10 files of cm 10.2 ROM in my sdcrd latest and oldest. All I used cm10.2 nightlie, experimental, stable. If possible send the link which u installed in ur galaxy tab p1000.

  8. Hi, guys thank u for reply! I checked the link which u post on or site its cm 10.1 link can explain me how can I update directly from ur link cm 10.1 to cm 10.2.

  9. I had already installed many Roms on my sgt-p1000 but every time same error Skype not work well it disconnect the call automaticly after 10 sec. This problem is only on cm 10.2 rom I also checked cm 10.2 nightlie, experimental, stable, but same error I also installed from different sites like xda, humberos, and others. But other software work great. And then i insall cm10.1. So plz tell me which one I install or what can I do foto out of this problem.

    1. Hi sunny, thanks for dropping comment here. I am not that often using Skype call. Yeah there are some people complaining about Skype call that doesn’t work well on CM 10.2. Will test it first and come back shortly.

      1. Hi guys. I don’t know if this is an issue but I installed 10.1 two days ago and now I notice it doenst charge the battery while the tab is on. it has to be off to take charge. is this a Rom issue or what?? I would like to upgrade to the 10.2 version but if this is an issue I better think twice. Please help me.

        1. Even I didn’t experiencing this issue when it was on 10.1, but upgrading to 10.2 may fix the battery charging issue you’re experiencing with. My tab also has charging issue when on 10.1 but with different situation. When it was on 10.1, the tab could not be charged and set as storage when connected to computer via cable. the 10.2 fixes my issue.

    2. I have tested both Skype voice (for 10+ minutes) and video (for 5+ minutes) call on Tab P1000 running CM 10.2 and used 3G/HSDPA data network without any problem. Are you sure that you were running CM 10.2 on GT-P1000 which automatically disconnected the call after 10 seconds?

      1. Yes I’m sure about that I downloaded latest and oldest cm10.2 files like nightlie, experimental, stable, from different sites like humberos, xda, cynogenmod. But same issue if u don’t mind send me the link where u installed cm10.2 ROM in ur galaxy tab p1000. And tell me there is a no official cm10.2 ROM for p1000.

      1. Thank you, I see CM 10.2 is the experimental version… any issues ? CM 10.1 is rock solid and it works flawlessly ! :)

        keep in touch!
