    Wow it moved all my stuff and changed my widgets, but my tab seems faster and more responsive. More to follow, oh and my tab never said there was an upgrade but when I plugged it into Keis it said firmware update and bingo Android 4.1.1!!!!

    4.1.1, eh? *sigh* That's too bad :(. Good chance that Samsung clipboard crash bug remains, then...

    I've never had my tab crash when using clipboard. Plus were you expecting 4.2, I'm happy they upgraded to jellybean.

    Happens to some. Doesn't to others. Happened to me. It is a known problem. Search on "Samsung clipboard crash".

    I was hoping for 4.1.2. Devices running 4.1.1 continue to report the problem. In fact: Some reports indicate it's actually worse on 4.1.1: Not crashing "just" apps, but the entire device.

    Well I tested all my apps so far so good. Plus I tried clipboard and no problems will continue to test.

    Still going strong, my only problem is there are a lot of changes on how things work so I'm learning all over again. Also it seems we have lost the screen shot function button/shortcut, but I might not have found it yet. Plus I understand flash is no longer supported but my flash app still seems to work. Is there a way to test this because if it is not supported I will delete flash player.

    As far as the Samsung clipboard crash problem:

    • If James never had it in the first place, with ICS, his odds of dodging it with JB are better. Nobody knows, for sure, and Samsung isn't saying (if they even know), but the bug seems dependent upon timing, the combination of apps in use, the phase of the moon, or...???
    • This bug doesn't necessarily strike right out of the gate. It didn't hit me until after two weeks of use. For others it took longer. For still others it was almost instantaneous.
    • Numerous users that had updated devices to 4.1.1 initially reported "It's fixed!," only to return, later, with "I guess not" and even "It's actually worse."
    • Users having updated to 4.1.2 have reported "It's fixed!," but that hasn't been in the wild long enough for that to be definitive.
    The problems here are:

    • Samsung has never even officially/formally acknowledged the bug exits, despite more than ample evidence it does. Thus...
    • Samsung has not announced what version(s) of what release(s) on what device(s) have been fixed
    As a result: Essentially any update remains suspect until...? Well, until who-knows-when?

    I sincerely hope it's fixed with 4.1.1. I'd really like to get it on my Tab 2 10.1.

    I've gone into Settings -> Info -> Update for the last three nights and checked. I get "no update available."

    *nod*

    Since asking that question I did a little superficial searching. It turns out updates are usually available via Kies (well?) before OTA: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Jelly Bean Update Starts Rolling Out.

    Guess I'll have to wait. Nine (9) days remaining, after which it's moot, for me.

    downloading update now over ota its going to take an hour or so for it to download. I hope this fixes my issue of synced songs from windows media player showing up as untagged so i have no idea what they are. Good thing too I was getting pretty close to just rooting and installing cyanogenmod or something but I would have to wait until my warranty is up

    Saw on the Galaxy tablet forum that JB was showing up OTA for Tab 2 10.1. Got home, turned on the tablet, did a manual check, it was there. Took about 40 minutes to download and install.

    Now to see if the clipboard bug is gone. Crossing my fingers.

    Powered on tonight and the JB update just started automatically. Way too soon to tell for sure but my tab seems a bit faster.

    Try POWER and VOL FOWN for 3 seconds.

    It works on most ICS/JB devices. Not sure about yours though.

    I still have the screen shot button on the bottom-left. It still takes screen shots.

    Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 JB 4.1.1

    I think I know what u guys mean by clipboard bug now. I tried to copy and paste something and my device promptly rebooted without warning. I might have to revert back to ICS if this rom gives me too much more grief or try a custom rom. If you ask me this rom was not ready to be released it is very unstable and things sometimes dont work for instance every single one of my wifi sync apps do not work in some way or another
