Where Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3100 (Indian Consumer's) still awaits the official Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update, Cyanogen Mod Inc. has released Cyanogen Mod 11 Nightlies for the same. The custom based ROM now offers Android 4.4.2 Kitkat which runs flawlessly and can be used as a daily driver for that matter.


Well there is still a problems to update the same via OTA that Cyanogen Mod servers provide. If you are blindly updating Cyanogen Mod 10.2 Nightlies to Cyanogen Mod 11 Nightlies, then you will have to face an error during installations that probably may get cancelled half way leaving a continuously booting device behind.

Reasons For Such an Error

1) Device not rooted. (May not be an issue with everyone).

2) Cyanogen Mod 11 is not compatible with ClockWorkMod Recovery 6.0.2.7. 

To boot and install Cyanogen Mod 11, you need to have ClockWorkWord Recovery 6.0.4.4 atleast. (Latest CWM Recovery Is 6.0.4.5) (Primary Reason)

3) Not having the right and appropriate Gapps version for Cyanogen Mod 11. 

4) USB Debugging not checked.

5) Not enough battery backup.
