do a hard reset on your tablet first, and then update it again.
1. With the phone off, hold the Volume Down button, and while still holding the Volume Down button, firmly press and release the Power button.
2. You’ll boot into a menu with a white background, small text and the little skateboarding Android guys.
3. Press the Volume Down button until you reach the Clear Storage option.
4. Press the Power button to select Clear Storage.
5. Press Volume Up to confirm the selection.Sit back while your phone reboots in its virgin state.

Good luck, if that still doesn’t work, you have to contact the official help center.

2 issues after updating touchwiz:
First: in no means I get the contacts synced with Google account contacts.
Most ennoying: installed also kies, it worked once with laptop win xp ( testedwith contacts and calendar).
Installed also on desktop also win xp, no way to have the tab recognised. Even no longer on the laptop neither.
Is hard reset recommended here, what about the data on the tab?

back up the data to the SD card, and then try a hard reset.

I have the Galaxy Tab 10.1 WiFi only and installed the software update. Before the update i was able to sync digital movies to the tablet. Now i get a message stating “Unable to get certificates for the device, contact device manufacturer for firmware update.” This was done through Windows Media Player. I have tried installing Kies and no luck. I have also tried opening two windows for Windows Explorer and draging the movie from one into the tablets video file in another. Also no luck with that. What can i do to fix this or sync movies to my tablet.
