Download Pixel UI for Galaxy Tab 2

The developer who has ported the Pixel UI to the Galaxy Tab 2 says that you will need any Tab 2 ROM running Android 5 or higher. You will also need to have Xposed framework installed.

Also, you will need Galaxy Tab 2 custom recovery like TWRP or CWM installed as well. That is quite obvious since we would be tinkering with the system files. Before you proceed, make sure to create a backup of all the files. Here are the installation instructions for installing Pixel UI onto the Samsung galaxy tab 2 android tablet.

1. Install Android N-ify Xposed module from here.
2. Activate the module
3. Reboot your device
