Update Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 P5100 to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with CM 10.1 Nightly ROM

The purpose between this post is our desire to bridge the gap between you and your device’s lack of a fresh Android version and features; in other words: we want you to learn how to update your Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 P5100 to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

A developer created the exact tool for this occasion: CyanogenMod 10.1 Nightly ROM. This instrument is not free from the occasional bugs, so if you notice them you need to install the default stock ROM on your tablet again to get right back on track.
