Tablets are no doubt, fun to use and quite an ease to own especially for a person who is engaged in presenting so much stuff here and there. One thing that you’ll notice in almost all the tablets is that they are slow in performance and lags quite a lot more than you can expect from them. Especially Samsung tablets, like their old Smartphones, these tables even after getting latest updates yet lags like they are made to do so. The simplest way to make them work faster than usual is to keep them away from the Stock ROM. Installing a custom ROM will do the job but too find that works fine, smooth and fast is not an easy job. However, latest Android based custom ROMs are quite good in terms of speed and performance and for a device like Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, we have got a perfect solution.

    Hi can you help please? I followed another guide http://www.teamandroid.com/2016/02/06/install-android-601-cm13-galaxy-tab-2-101-p5100-marshmallow-custom-rom/2/ and installed an older rom cm-13.0-20160201-2019-UNOFFICIAL-p5100. I see now that the latest version is Bliss-v6.1-p5100-UNOFFICIAL-20160212-1046 How can I update to this newer version without losing all my apps, settings and configuration? I have the ClockworkMod recovery installed. Reason I ask is that the Galaxy Tab2 is now crashing / restarting a lot and keeps bombing out to the Bliss startup logo etc. I also tried wiping the cache partition. I left a comment on the TeamAndroid article but they just deleted it! Thanks

    Hi,
    Thank you for your help. Everything is (almoust) OK, but kernel adiutor can’t make overclock.
    Please advise!

    • @disqus_huz6mla85R:disqus Since it’s a custom ROM, we can’t say anything about its functionality and behaviour.

      • Mihai Mihaila

        Cam on!
        All I try to say is that I can’t tweak anything more than stock performance. And before I chose this ROM, i read in his description that this can be maid. Please, I need your help.
        Thank you.
