    I would wait until Samsung is ready to push out the real thing. Check on the status now and then by going into settings then about and check for firmware updates. It will come. Wen in that about area, what version does it say you have now?

    Samsung Firmware updates are released by region so the update is not released in your region yet in order to update via kies.. It is possible to download the firmware which has been released in other regions (someone must have uploaded it online) and flash it on your tablet manually, but at your own risk!

    FYI 4.1.x is Jelly Bean, however, there is a 4.2.x update for Jelly Bean that you will get at some point

    ITYM 4.1.2? Either way: There's no guarantee of that. Samsung chose to leave Galaxy Tab (1) owners at ICS and they pushed 4.1.1 out to Tab 2 owners knowing it had the clipboard bug.

    In which case you can only hope that they will at least issue a patch.

    Apparently not: Samsung criticised as Android device copy bug is unfixed after eight months

    From Samsung's own developer's forum: Clipboard crashes on Android 3.0+ Samsung devices

    The most recent post in that thread, dated Mar, 22, 2013, five months after the thread was started:
    From the Guardian article:
    Which was pretty much the conclusion I reached after researching that bug, the many other critical bugs that have afflicted Samsung mobile devices, and Samsung's abysmal customer service reputation.

    Come on, get over it, I doubt you are going to have an effect on Samsung's bottom line or anything. I realize you have declared a personnal vendetta against them, but my experience, and that of many people I know, is completely positive. You have stated, far too many times over, your concerns, but it seems obvious you are less interested in offering sound advice than righting some percieved wrong done to you by Samsung. Might be time to advocate for another maker rather than spending your time trying to sully Samsung's reputation.

    The OP asked a specific question. He was given an answer (Samsung releasing 4.1.2 for the Tab 2s) that recent history suggests was probably a vain hope. Same with leeshore's 2nd response (the patch).

    Samsung is not perfect. In fact: Despite their market share, history indicates anything but. Get over it.

    I've known four people IRL with Samsung mobile devices: An S2, a Tab 10.1 and two Tab 2 10.1s. Two of them got bit by the clipboard crash bug. Plus people keep complaining about it on-line. So it's a pretty safe bet it's real, despite the fact you'd apparently prefer to keep people in the dark about Samsung's execrable mobile device product quality and customer "service."

    4.1.2 vs. 4.2.x: Fact.

    No indication there'll ever be a 4.1.x for Tabs: Fact.

    Samsung pushed a known buggy 4.1.1 out the door and shows no inclination of pushing 4.1.2 out for some devices: Fact

    The clipboard bug remains and Samsung continues to ignore it: Fact.

    Facts are, by definition, sound. Your comments, however, were composed primarily of opinion and personal attack. Not so sound.

    My wrong was righted by Costco. Full refund. No problem.

    There's no maker of which I'm particularly fond, atm, and Samsung certainly needs no help from me to sully their reputation. They're doing a fine job on their own. Shall I recount their two latest magnificent Android device snafus?

    Maybe I'll do a web page, put it all together, there, and put it in my signature... bein' as I'm on a vendetta and all... [​IMG]

    When you go to Settings - About, what Android version is listed?

    Keep in mind, JellyBean 4.1 on tablets typically has a TabletUI (with clock in the lower right and pop-up notifications) and JellyBean 4.1 on a phone has a PhoneUI (with clock on the top and pull down notifications).

    Exception to the 4.1 TabletUI is the Nexus7 and Nexus10 tablets, they use a "PhabletUI".

    Yes, really. 4.1.x and 4.2.x are JB. 4.0.x is ICS.

    Being that this thread is seriously deteriorating into infraction territory I'm closing it.
