Bad news you can't. You can factory reset and it will still update.

How do I upgrade my samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1


You go into settings, scroll down to the bottom where it says about tablet. Click on about tablet, there should be System Update at the top click it, it will check for a OTA update if there is one and download it. It should automatically check for an update, and say there's an OTA update available in your task bar.

Samsung tablet note 2 won't turn on


Steven,
I am not an expert with the Galaxy Note since I just own a Galaxy 2 Tab. But I have some suggestions.
Have you recently updated Android? If so your problem may be due to an error in the updated code. Solution: Contact Samsung to report your problem. If your problem is not unique, then you will have to wait until the software is fixed and the new update becomes available; this was my problem {I could not shutdown my Galaxy; after the shutdown it would just do a restart. I let the battery run down completely and stored the Galaxy for over month, waiting for the software upgrade. When I was notified of the upgrade, I installed the upgrade and everything was fixed.}
If you are impatient, search the web for how to "reset" your device by holding down the power on/off switch and the +key volume, if I remember correctly. This will put you in a kind-of debug mode. Don't rely on my directions but google this until you get the complete procedure so you do it correctly and you have some understanding of what you are doing.
Hope this is helpful even though it is not "the" solution to your particular problem.

Samsung galaxy 2 tablet 10.1 camera failed


OK, here is the issue with the "camera failed" - the PHYSICAL part of the camera is fine, it is the SOFTWARE that is flawed. Until Samsung to fix this issue downloading a 3rd part camera software program will allow you to at least use the camera. As of 4.0.4 the issue STILL exists. Samsung support is of NO HELP. How do I know this I have a 7.0 Tab myself and spend lots of time in the forums AND I have the exact same problem.

All these do gooders telling you to take this thing back for a new one are wasting your time, you WILL have the same issue with another new unit. Either return it and get your money back or wait a bit for the fix to come in an update. No cleaning the lens will not fix the gray pictures either.

Good luck

The system of my galaxy tab 10 locked


Does the system will lock itself? I don't think so. It may lock the surface, so just press unlock, it should work. If not, contact Samsung for directly help.

Hi,

Good day. I''m afraid you might have accidentally got the Operating System of your Samsung Tab corrupted. Im referring to your firmware. Usually if the firmware upgrade failed you need to retry it until it be successful. If you restart it or discontinue the process it will cause your Samsung Tab to be corrupted resulting into failure of the boot up process. You might need to contact samsung tech support for this or bring your equipment to the nearest center. They might need to check the software install and usually their software specialist will fix it for you. Sorry for what happen with your tab but i know the samsung repair center can fix it for you. Hope this information will be helpful to you. Have a great day.

Cannot update software/firmware


Samsung Tab needs Kies software to update to latest firmware.
Download Kies from here and install it. When finished, launched the Kies and it should tell you whether there's need for an update or not.

Hope this helps.
