Yoga Tab 3 PLUS // YT-X703f Latest Update Errors

2020-04-25, 5:29 AM

Device been in service twice already.

And even now I get light flickering on the screen and wi-fi drops now and then ( every 5-10 min like )

Anyway

 

I've got the update to Android 7 last winter, everything worked fine.

2 nights ago I've got a forced notification to update were I pressed OK by mistake without reading more about it.

Device just died after, got stuck on bootloading ( Lenovo Logo ) for hours.

Hit the Hard Reset several times and it started again, with a different loadimage and everything on my desktop gone, even if I change them.

 

After the mysterious update I've noticed problems like:

 

-can't access smart notification bar ( I can slide the bar down to see the main icons, but that's all, I can't slide it more down to see extras )

 

-every time when it gets into OS after powerON I get a strange loud sound for 1-2 sec ( something similar to a lound "ding" ).

 

-I get thr highlight and vibrations when I press home and recent apps button but nothing happens.

 

- doesn't seems to read the touch pad properly, feels like double-tapping

 

-notification LED keep blinking slowly like I have any notification

 

-I tried to install Lenovo Help from PS and I've noticed I click on download/install, I can see it starting to download/install and nothing happens ( tried different apps and nothing happens )

 

I will put the current software version after the update:

"You have the latest system update"

YT-X703F_S120019_200316_ROW

Software : YT-X703F_RF01_170721

OS : 7.1.1

Kernel : 3.10.84-perf

 

What can I do ?!

On the warranty page I've read something to start system and long press Volume Up to get into self-diagnosis, but it doesn't work.

*Update After several hard Factory resets it working properly but .... I just sticked back the memory card ( been in the tablet since purchase) and it does not recogniseit. - Unsupported card format. I don't want to format the card as I have dozens of GB of data on. Why the "newly" OS doesn't recognize my old MC ?! Thanks

I just got the update while watching Netflix on my tablet. I'm not sure if I pressed OK, but in the middle of the movie it just showed a notification that the tablet will restart in some seconds and I pressed "restart now". I did not see any update progress bar during reboot but a very long lasting "Starting Android". Once it started the home screen was nuked and the SD card seems to be not recognized. What is worse is that a message keep popping up saying that "com.android.phone" has crashed.. making the tables unusable now.. The system update seems to be downloading again though.. 

 

 

I did not expect to see any updates anymore.. especially after the sketchy update to Android 7 that has been denied by Lenovo that it ever existed for some unknown reason.. If this is the new way they want to force you to buy a new tabled, by bricking your old one with a software update.. that will have serious consequences.. 

 

I'm still waiting for the update to finish downloading.. I really hope this time it will go trough.. I also really hope the SD card will start working again.. I had somewhere around 80GB of stuff on my SD card.. thank you Lenovo for the data loss..
