Infact, they even released Android 7.1.1 which is also known as Nougat aka the latest version of the android. It is available for the 3G, wifi and T-mobile variants, so GT-P7510, GT-P7500 and SGH-T859 are covered. Its kernel features are listed below.

The developers were able to get everything working except for camera and 3G. Installation instructions are given below.

In this article, we will guide you on how to enable voice calling on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. To enable it, you need to ensure you are running the 3G variant of it which has model number P7500. The easiest way to confirm this is by checking if it has SIM card slot – if it has, then you can enable voice calling on it.
Requirements for enabling voice calling on Tab 10.1
– Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 3G [GT-P7500].
– You must have a custom recovery like TWRP for Tab 10.1 onboard.
– Any ROM based on Stock ICS 4.0.4 or the official stock ICS for tab 10.1. It might work on other ROMs too but I have tested it only on P7500 running stock android 4.0.4.
1- Reboot to Recovery Mode. Do this by pressing and holding down volume up key and power button together until your tablet reboot to recovery.
2- Make a Full Backup. [optional]
3- Install File CWM_I9103XXLQ3_Modem.zip – download this zip file from here.
4- Install File Voice Call Enable [Stock] ICS 4.0.4 ROM Build 1.zip
5- Wipe Cache & Dalvik Cache.
6- Reboot the tab 10.1 and start making voice calls.
TWRP is a custom recovery for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. There are two variants of the this recovery as there are two versions of the tab – the P7500 (3G only) and P7510 (Wifi only version).
By installing recovery, you will be able to flash all sorts of hack on to the tablet, including ability to root your Tab 10.1 tablet and install custom firmware. Since Samsung has not churned any ROM after the official ICS for Galaxy Tab 10.1, it makes perfect sense to install TWRP recovery on the P7500 / P7510 and get the latest version of android unofficially.
Download links are given below.

Samsung galaxy tab 2 is a great tablet, but to do things like overclocking, underclocking and to gain system access, you will need to root your tablet. This method allows you to do just that. It has been tested on GT-P5113, GT-P5100 and GT-P5110 and it has be done using a Windows PC only. At this moment, there is no Mac or Linux compatibility. Follow these directions to root it.
First download these:
3. cwm-root-gtab2.zip NOTE: GT-P5100 & GT-P5110 use alternate file: cwm-root-gtab2a.zip
We also suggest installing Samsung Kies now if you have done so already. Download it from here.
Copy cwm-root-gtab2.zip (or cwm-root-gtab2a.zip) to the root of your Tab’s sd card (the external one). Now, turn it off and start it in download mode. Do this by holding the Power and Volume UP/RIGHT buttons at the same time. A yellow triangle will appear – press the volume down button to continue into the download mode (ODIN).
STEP 2: Make sure KIES is closed and not running. Extract Odin3 v1.85.exe and run it.
STEP 3: Connect the tablet to your computer. In Odin, click the PDA button. Select the recovery.tar.md5 file you downloaded and click the START button. Let Odin install the files. When it’s done installing CWM the box turns GREEN and tablet will reboot.
