Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Receiving Ice Cream Sandwich Update Today

Good news this morning as T-Mobile is set to update their edition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus to Ice Cream Sandwich. Unfortunately, the update requires Samsung’s Kies software to complete the download, so no sitting back and waiting for the OTA. The change-log highlights all the various Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich improvements, and Media Hub’s need for ICS after August 27th. So don’t wait to long to grab this update.

In a move that has both our friends at Android Police and us, T-Mobile says the Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus will receive Android 4.0.5?! We assume, and we believe safely so that this is someone hitting the wrong key, but Android Police received a statement from T-Mobile claiming it was correct:

Thanks for asking! According to the information provided, the device will be updated to 4.0.5. If this ends up being incorrect info, I’ll make sure to update the document accordingly.

Thanks again for making sure our information is correct.

So, you know, still probably an error and it’ll be corrected at some point today. Either way, if you’re a Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus owner, today will be a good day. Hit the T-Mobile link below for instructions on how to perform the manual upgrade via Samsung’s Kies software.

      How did you get it?

    tips 
    Make sure to let samsung kies installation finish. Lots of  hotfixs thought it was endless loop at first. let it finish.
     When you plug the tablet in it will ask how you want to use device….windows thing when a usb storage device is put in like a thumb drive,
     just click x to close window, windows permission screens will come up make sure u accept. 
    minimize kies screen for any background notifications you might have missed. 
    if you can’t connectanother way to upgrade if your having problems connecting withen  kies unplug usb cord turn on usb debugging (i think its in settings then applications then usb debugging ..sorry late night)  plug usb cable back in,  it will install more drivers automatically wait to finish. again be patient  unplug usb cable do a reboot on your computer. after reboot start kies  don’t change usb debugging leave it on until finshed with update. plug the usb back to the tablet. Be patient it can take a while. screen will pop up saying you need to upgrade click to upgrade. i did 3 only one caused me trouble thats when usb debugging worked.btw using win 7 64bit 

    watch for 
    from instructions above 
    just click x to close window, windows permission screens will come up make sure u accept.these came up in background. mine came up multiple times.

    at first i think it was ok, but no flash player is a big thing! honeycomb provides flash player out of the box, but when I update to ICS, they removed it. why oh why!
