Cyanogen 13 mate, put it on my mum in laws old tab 2, like a new machine and runs mm like a pro.
Got given the sisters old one too so it instantly went on it.
Only issue I had was that flashing the recovery didn't work, it kept booting into Sammy recovery. So had to get the twrm manager app off Google play once rooted, then install the latest version from that.

Chainfire flash from odin, all in one package that gave root, superuser and a recovery which it wouldn't boot into lol.
Luckily the root worked a treat tho and could install the recovery manually as mentioned earlier.
It seems flashing recoveries in odin is hit and miss with tab 2, but with root..

That worked 1st time, both times.
