Ok I finally got it, and here's the method for updating . it is totally safe and if any problem occurs it will abort and you can restart your TPT like always .
Heres the steps :
1) You have to download the firmware from here :
( seems its not available and they have been pulled 0075 update but this will word for any update )
Improtant : if you are on 0052, then you should manually install 60, then 65, then 75 . In other word, you cannot jump from 60 to 75 .
2) you have to paste the firmware in the .zip format ( exactly like you download it ) in your SD card .
3) Reboot your TPT . When your display goes on, start pressing Volume Up for several times .You'll See it writes that you are going to Recovery image . Wait ...
4) Now you are in recovery mode . with pressing volume up and down you can navigate and by pressing power button you enter the menu . choose "install update from SD card" and choose your firmware ( with the sequence ) .and wait for device to complete its job .
( Edit #1 : if you are stuck on any update, and your system update does not work, and also you dont want to use manual update - which is not harmful at all - you can follow this method : for example you are in 0052 - which so many people stucked on this build - if you manually install 0060, your TPT will update to 0060, so DONT DO THAT . just try some other build which is not next build . the TPT will try to update but it will abort due to sequence error, but it will fix the OTA system update, have fun )
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for the info - I successfully updated my TPT per these instructions and download link. I did use the wall charger and USB cable supplied with the TPT. I never saw any notification of any battery FW updates, but it took longer than normal to boot after update.
Haven't played around at all, but it's still is not very responsive when unlocking via pattern. Seems the same as before.
12:12pm update finished in recovery
12:17pm system completely booted - no sign of any battery FW being updated
No more Cell standby

That's a really neat forum rule. Think we can get the size updated to 2011 standards?

tnx to kongkong,
0075_US link :
This file starts with ThinkPadTablet_A310_02_0037, but my system starts with ThinkPadTablet_A310_02_0024.
Is that going to be problem?
BTW: I noticed all files started with ThinkPadTablet_A310_02_0024 in http://download.lenovo.com/slates/think/tablet1/
