I bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab which has Android 2.2. I want to upgrade it to 2.3 but I don’t know how. I searched to find out a way to do so, but I couldn't find anything.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Which exact Galaxy Tab model do you have? Samsung released 13 different models: The official 2.3 upgrade may or may not be available for your specific model. – Chahk Feb 22 '12 at 16:42

You connect device to computer running samsung kies and do the damage with official gingerbread All settings and databases will be lost or erased, so take care to make backup (if you know how to root then with titanium is best)

There is aftermarket Ice Cream Sandwich in development
