While most of the Samsung Galaxy Tab users are still waiting for the official Ice Cream Sandwich update, developers at the XDA forum have managed to successfully create a working Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Jelly Bean ROM. This Android Jelly Bean ROM brings all the goodness of the latest and greatest Android operating system to popular Galaxy Tab 10.1 series (GT 7500 and GT 7510). Currently most of the things like touch screen, audio, 3G (for GT7500), Wi-Fi, hardware accelerated video, etc are working fine. However, camera does not work, we have to wait for the official Ice Cream Sandwich update for Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to get the drivers.
