I just got my Lenovo A1 in the mail. It seems to be working well. I checked to see if it had any system upgrades available and it said it did. I was does anyone know what is in this system upgrade? Is if worth it? I know on some android phones especially the ones with lesser hardware systems upgrades can cause problems. If the current kernel works fine I don't want to upgrade to a new one that will cause problems. Thanks everyone!

My A1 popped a message up on Friday saying an update was available. I accepted the download and since then I have found it is difficult to connect to my home WiFi and when I do eventually get a connection it drops out every 10-15 seconds :-((
I have done a search and found a post relating to the problem, but that states the problem revolves around a non compatability issue with Belkin routers. I do NOT have a Belkin. My router is a Thompson.
Any suggestions? My laptop, printer and iPhone all connect fine and stay connected.
Thanks in anticipation.

tap.... Settings / Wireless & Networks / Wi-Fi Settings / Advanced (from menu button)
Now you will see 2 sections...
WI-FI sleep policy (mine is set to... WHEN SCREEN TURNS OFF)
IP address (mine says 22.214.171.124)
Use static IP (checked)
IP address (mine is set to 126.96.36.199)
Gateway (mine is set to 188.8.131.52)
Netmask (mine is set to 255.255.255.0)
DNS 1 (mine is set to 184.108.40.206)
DNS 2 (mine is left blank)
Setting up a Static IP usually resolved the repeating wifi dropout.

I too am interested in this subject. Is it always advisable to update to the latest firmware even if your present system is working just fine. Is there any way to find out what changes will be made before you allow the upgrade to take place?
Or, should you just leave well enough alone unless you actually have a problem that needs fixing?
