    The ICS 4.0.4 Stock ROM was posted to StockRoms.net on the 1st of August. I downloaded and pushed it onto my tab via Odin. (unrooted)

    The transfer and upgrade / reboot was seamless and had no data loss.
    I have been very happy with the upgrade and really impressed with the additional bangs and whistles.

    The folder creation and ability to add shortcuts to the desktop is nice - AND I have not had ONE forced close/restart after using it almost non-stop for three days now. I also like that you can add or remove home screens (from 1 to 7 of them).

    VERY NICE (and official) release!

    Not that I know of. BUT as this is the official release for it, my recommendation is to download it and us Odin to upgrade your tab.
    You don't need to root your tab or make any boot process changes, simply push it as a PDA file to your tab.
    The upgrade process was clean, and while I did back everything up, all of my apps successfully updated and retained their data.

    My two cents ...

    ... as an add-on, this was posted on another site this evening:

    The update is now being rolled out in the UK and several other countries in the European continent and both the 3G and Wi-Fi only versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 are now getting their tasty treat of Cream Sandwich. Sad to say, users of the tablet in US shores will still have to wait some more before the update finally makes it to our side of the world. On a side note, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the subject of a preliminary injunction in the US after Apple files a lawsuit claiming that the Korean smartphone and tablet manufacturer infringed on some of its patents, particularly the now infamous ‘604 Siri patent.

    So that brings me back to my original advice to download and install this for yourself :), I have been working on mine without a hitch since the upgrade.

    For better help you should post this in the right forum where it will get noticed by people that have your type of tablet.

    That would be really cool, I had also updated my samsung tab 10.1 recently with ICS and it just became fabulous. It is just fabulous I mean it is damn simple to use, I am experiencing different kind of touch and it is really brilliant.
