The instruction here is all about Cryanogen Mode 10.1. Samsung has not rolled out the Jelly Bean 4.3 update for Galaxy Tab 2. CM 10.1 is a custom ROM that allows you to experience 4.3 on your Tab 2 while it is not officially out yet.

I did not want to go to CM-11 so I decided to install the latest stable code CM-10.1.3 and now the tablet won't booth. I would like to find the latest cm-10.2 nightly to try it.

This update is not the official update for this particular device meaning that there will errors and bugs involved in updating your device out of the means of the devices capabilities. My recommendation is for you to stick with the software that has came with the device in order to prevent further damage to your device.

This means that something has caused your application to crash which more than likely came for the update you have applied to your device, you can simply re boot your device in order to get rid of this error but if the problem persists you will need to factory reset the device for further error free use.

No, unfortunately the device is not yet compatible with that device at this time and will more than likely not be compatible in the near feature because of the devices capabilities. You can continue to check its availability through the update device option located in your settings to check if you will be able to update your device successfully.
