To flash the firmware, you have first to flash the PhilZ Touch Recovery.



A. How to flash PhilZ Touch Recovery
1. CHECK DEVICE MODEL NO.
To make sure your device is eligible with this, you must first confirm its model no. in ‘About device’ option under Settings. Another way to confirm model no. is by looking for it on the packaging box of your device. It must be Samsung GT-P5100! Do not use the procedures discussed here on any other Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 variants or any other device of Samsung or any other company. You have been warned! 
2. BACKUP YOUR DEVICE
Back up important data and stuff before you start playing around here as there are chances you might lose your apps and app-data (app settings, game progress, etc.), and in rare case, files on the internal memory, too. 
3.INSTALL LATEST DRIVER
You must have proper and working driver installed on your windows computer to be able to successfully flash PhilZ Touch Recovery on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. You can download it from here.
4. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Download the above archive, and you'll find inside Odin zip file and PhilZ tar.md5 files. Transfer both Odin and recovery tar file to a separate folder on your computer just to keep things tidy.
Extract/Unzip the Odin zip file, Latest Odin3 v3.09.zip on your computer to get this file: Odin3 v3.09.exe
Move philz_touch_6.57.8-p5100.tar.md5 in the same folder in which you extracted Latest Odin3 v3.09.zip (Just for your convenience, that is). So, now you’ll have the following files in that folder:

    Odin3 v3.09.exe
    philz_touch_6.57.8-p5100.tar.md5

Disconnect the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 from PC if it is connected.
Double-click the Odin3 v3.09.exe file to open Odin.
Boot your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 into Download Mode
Power off your tablet first and wait for 6-7 seconds after display is off
Press and hold these 3 buttons together until you see Warning! screen: Volume Down + Power + home
Press Volume Up now to continue to Download Mode
Connect your Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 to PC. Odin window will show an Added!! message in bottom left box. Odin’s screen would look like this:


If you don’t get the Added! message, here are some troubleshooting tips:
Make sure you have installed driver for Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 as said above.
If you have already installed driver, then uninstall them and re-install back.
Connect using a different USB port on your PC.
Try a different USB cable. The original cable that came with your tablet should work best, if not, try any other cable that’s new and of good quality.
Reboot tablet and PC and then try again.

Load the recovery file (Step 2) into Odin as instructed below:
Click on the AP button on Odin and select the
philz_touch_6.57.8-p5100.tar.md5file (from step 2). Your Odin window should look something  like the screenshot below:

Now in the Option section of Odin, make sure that Re-Partition box is unchecked. (Auto Reboot and F. Reset Time boxes remain checked, while all other boxes remain unchecked.)
Double check the above two steps.
Click the Start button to begin flashing PhilZ Touch Recovery on your Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 GT-P5100, and wait until you see a PASS! message in Odin’s top left box.
When you get PASS! message, your tablet will restart automatically. You can then disconnect your tablet from PC.


PhilZ Touch Recovery has installed successfully on your Tab 2 10.1. To boot your Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 into Recovery Mode:
Power off your tablet first and wait for 6-7 seconds after display is off.
Press and hold these 3 buttons together: Volume Up + Power + home.

If you see FAIL message instead of the PASS in Odin’s top left box, that’s a problem. Try this now: disconnect your Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 from PC, close Odin, hold the Power button for 10 seconds which will force restart the tablet, open Odin and then repeat from Step 5 of this guide again.

Also, If device is Stuck at setup connection or on any other process, then too, try this: disconnect your Tab 2 10.1 from PC, close Odin, hold the Power button for 10 seconds which will force restart the tablet, open Odin and then repeat from Step 5 of this guide again.
