Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8-inch marshmellow update

I just recieved the OTA update (6.0.1) for the lenovo yoga tab 3 8-inch (model number YT3-850M).

The software is unstable - it doesn't connect to the internet well, doesn't download apps, the orientation is locked in landscape even after enabling auto-rotate in the quick settings. Launcher crashes if I try to change widgets.

The tab is connected to Wi-Fi and there aren't any connectivity issues on the other devices conected.

 

Details:-

Kernel Version : 3.10.49

Software Version : YT3-850M_161125

Build Number : YT3-850M_S000114_161125_ROW

 

Please suggest a solution as soon as possible, I use this tab for college and casual YouTube.

Hello rachithjedidiah

 

Welcome to the forum,

 

In this instance what i can recommend is doing a reset of the device, 

 

I suggest backing up any data you will want to keep.

 

1. Press and hold the power button and the plus volume. You will need to continue holding this until you feel a vibration. Once this happens key  release the power button but carry on holding the plus volume key. You will see an image of an Android robot with a red exclamation mark. Use the volume keys to scroll to "wipe data/factory reset" and press Power to select it. Scroll down to "Yes - erase all user data" and press Power to select it. This will be the screen that you will see.

 

If this does not help i recommend contact your country's support centre via phone.

Re: Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8-inch marshmellow update

I too have the same problem of auto rotate not working. Hence I am forcing it to Portrait mode and using. I also suspect high resolution Location detection through GPS. These look like issues with drivers for Lenovo devices. When can we expect fixes?

Re: Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8-inch marshmellow update

Wait for update come to service centre probably...in 2-3months wait till upto....if you want to get back android lollipop...go to service center and flash the stock rom...

PS - Lenovo is very slow in update of their old models...this marshmallow update may be last update for this device...

Hope so soon they ll fix it...

Rest all read my previous note...

Re: Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8-inch marshmellow update

I know you all are having issues but its nice to see that the MM update is in the system.
I don't understand why they have so many issues as they've had well over a year to sort everything out.
