If you are still on ICS or Jelly Bean with your Galaxy Tab 10.1, it’s probably the time to consider updating to latest Android 4.4.4 + root.
For this purpose, you can try Omni ROM, which is closest custom ROM you will find to stock Android 4.4.4.
Also, Omni ROM brings several features to the table including customization options for your status bar, quick settings, navigation bar, Power Menu, and some more. You will also find Active Display, OmniSwitch, and some more.
For tweaking performance, you can use Omni ROM’s built-in Performance menu to overclock up to 1.6Ghz. However, I find Tab 10.1 running the fastest at around 1.4Ghz.
Also for UI, you can try using Nova launcher (free on Play Store), then set all animations to “super fast” in Nova settings.
Coupled with those settings, your Tab 10.1 should now be flying compared to ICS or Jelly Bean.
I know many of you probably have your Tab 10.1 in your closet somewhere. If that’s the case and you have kids, definitely upgrade to Android 4.4.4 and let your kids have an extra tablet to play with. As for me, I am re-using my Tab 10.1 to replace my Note 10.1 as Live view for my Canon 7D DSLR (hence why I updated.)
But I will try to update this site more often when I get a chance and also will post some tutorial guides for newer Tab 2/3 soon! (I don’t have Tab 2 or 3 but surely can post some tutorials for you.)
IMPORTANT: YOU MUST UPDATE YOUR CWM TO LATEST CWM v.126.96.36.199 or TWRP TO LATEST TWRP v.188.8.131.52 or higher to install KitKat ROMs. If you don’t know how to do this, see How to Install KitKat ROM on Galaxy Tab 10.1!
To install ROM, reboot into recovery, backup ROM (have at least one backup!!!), wipe data/factory reset, install ROM, install Gapps, and reboot. That’s it!
(If for some reason you end up in a bootloop, reboot into recovery, go to Advanced Wipe for TWRP or Mounts & Storage for CWM, format/wipe /system, then re-install ROM.)
