Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Samsung's just let us know that the Android 3.2 update for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has begun to push out again. You'll recall how a couple weeks ago the initial update led to Wifi connectivity problems for some, and the update was pulled. That bug has been squashed, and the update's good to go again.

If you skipped the update the first time around, you can download it over the air. For those who did update and ended up with a borked tablet (that's the technical term, by the way), you'll need to connect to the Samsung Kies desktop app and update that way.

Here's the official word from Samsung:

Earlier this morning, Samsung began releasing an over the air software update allowing Galaxy 10.1 users to upgrade to Android 3.2 while also resolving a Wi-Fi connectivity issues some Galaxy 10.1 users experienced following a previous software update. For Galaxy 10.1 users who are experiencing Wi-Fi connectivity issues and are unable to reconnect, the new software update may be downloaded and installed via Samsung's Kies desktop app.

No matter how you do it, though, good on Samsung for identifying the problem, pulling the update and pushing out a fix relatively quickly.

This is just the Wifi-Only version correct? Not the VZW?

jimmyk0789 says:

I had to send mine in because I couldn't connect to kies and u was just about to tip y'all and let y'all know they have a new update I just got off the phone with a Rep saying my tablets was in the process of being updated

Meltarrus says:

Does anyone know what was updated? What's new and improved?

tyczj says:

uhh did you even read the article?? its updated to 3.2

Meltarrus says:

No I did not otherwise I would not have asked. And if you are going to give me such a lame response, you could do the courtesy of providing a link to wherever you read it.

All I could seem to find was info on how the wi-fi was broken. I have since found general info that tells me what was added. But I was wondering if there was anything additional added to the Samsung release.

tyczj says:

lol there is no link to give just scroll up and read moron, updated to 3.2 and fixes problems with last update

Meltarrus says:

Moron? Really? The original 3.2 broke wi-fi and it is fixed, I get that. What does the 3.2 update bring that was prior to the original bad 3.2 update? If is there I don't see it above or in the links.

No need for name calling, but if you want to go there... Don't act like a jerk, be helpful of don't respond.

slackerjack says:

Correction - it took them just over 7 days to fix, not "weeks." I know it's tempting for the Customer base to be frustrated with such a bug/issue - but that Samsung turned it around in a week, during the holidays, concurrent with a major product release (Galaxy Nexus) speaks to their commitment to their Customer-base

nalpakj says:

I'm running it we'll see. It's been going for `5 minutes but at least the status is still moving...slowly...

bschrib says:

Happy to see another update pushed by Samsung, and so very quickly. However I feel like ASUS has really set the golden standard for updates, so the statement "pulling the update and pushing out a fix relatively quickly." is relative to what, Samsung themselves?

silentjosh37 says:

If you don't see it when going in to do a manual update, reboot and try again it should show up.

nalpakj says:

OK...done...and WiFi is working.

swagnificent says:

Installing the update as we speak. Am I the only one or does it seem to take forever for this update to install?

wpcneto says:

Yes! It took forever but it worked!
The installation process from 0% to about 58% was very slow but then after that it went fast and all is working fine!

linkkoriri says:

I've had my Wifi 10.1 look with itself threw wifi, and connected with the most up to date Kies, but it is saying my 3.1 doesnt have an update... Am I missing something? :S Is it cause I'm in Canada?

fnair says:

Yeah, I think this is the US release only so far.

kerrhome says:

I was a broken tab. I plugged into Kies and don't think it's been fixed. Anyone have a release # they can share for a tab running the right version of the update?

kerrhome says:

Never mind. My work network was blocking the Kies software from seeing if a new firmware version was available. Worked around it and it is updating now.

rub2008 says:

Worked just fine!!! WIFI works and Kies does too. :)

wollac11 says:

Not getting the update on my 16gb wifi only galaxy tab 10.1. Says no update found. I'm in the UK - is this update US only or something?

paulmacaluso says:

They just called me for the rma and I told them about the update. They said they are pulling it again because of issues.

wpcneto says:

i just finished the updating process - the device is working fine - after the downloading of the software the installation process was slow and it took about 20 mins to finish but all is fine - thank god!

wpcneto says:

the update worked fine - the entire process took about 25 minutes
the installation was very slow but it worked and all is ok! Thank god!

erjennin says:

Sorry if it has already been posted somewhere, but what does 3.2 bring us that wasn't available in 3.1?

tronthedon says:

There's actually a great site for this kind of thing. I don't think you've ever heard of it, but it's

It's actually a very quick site that would probably answer your question much faster than the time it took you to type out your post and wait for a response.

Meltarrus says:

You may find this helpful. The only answers I have gotten here are smart ass remarks.

tronthedon says:

Yea excuse me for actually expecting a Google Android user to stop being lazy and use Google for 3 seconds to find their answer. I should know better.

MrBratt says:

I was one who installed the first 3.2update that broke the Tab on the release date. I then last Saturday found a way to reinstall the 3.1 release and got it working again. I installed the new update yesterday and am noticing one odd thing. When my tab goes to sleep for a few minutes and I wake it back up, it will not connect to my WiFi without turning off WiFi and then turning it back on. Then it will connect immediately. I typically have the Wifi Sleep Policy set to whenever the screen is off. But now I need to keep the WiFi on all the time so it will connect. Anyone else have this issue after the update?

deppeler says:

Yes, I have the exact same issue. Fix one thing and break another grrrrrrr.

dpomerance says:

You aren't alone. I guess there will be another fix coming out.:-)

MrBratt says:

In a way I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one. I was certain that I was able to have the wifi go to sleep before...

MrBratt says:

I did a chat session with Samsung tech support. They want me to factory reset it again (I've already done it twice) to see if that helps. If not, they want me to send it in for service. Hmmm... not sure what to do.
