How to flash CyanogenMax JB for the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

How to flash CyanogenMax JB for the Galaxy

CyanogenMod 10 is one of the most installed custom ROMs out there. It boasts a lot of great features and sports Android 4.1 Jelly Bean’s iconic smooth UI design. Installing it on a tablet, specifically the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, gives it a bit more boost in power, but what if it still isn’t fast enough for you? That’s what the CyanogenMax JB custom ROM was built for.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 has received a heavily modded CyanogenMod 10 build compiled by XDA Developers member maxio1998. CyanogenMax was created for the purpose of providing a faster and smoother experience achieved through tweaks to its user interface responsiveness, the deletion of redundant or underused apps, removed ringtones, a new init.d script, adjusted space for the /system/app and /system/media, and much more.
