It's been a long time coming, but Sprint's version of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 is finally getting updated to Jelly Bean (Android 4.2.1). There are quite a few reasons to pull this update, as it brings several enhancements over Ice Cream Sandwich, including Google Now, Project Butter (for smoothness), enhanced notifications, lockscreen widgets, and much more.


Aside from that, the update also brings a "Wi-Fi Qualcomm driver fix" so the device will automatically connect to the most recent Wi-Fi hotspot, as well as a "device self activation client update." Sounds intense.

According to Sprint's post, the update should be rolling out now OTA, though there's no word of whether or not you can pull it through Kies.

    This is why I rooted my Sprint GS3. :l The IN GS3 has it in alpha or something, and some GS3s are still in 4.1.2.
