Yoga Tablet 2-1050L: Android download

After the latest system update my Yoga 2-1050L is not booting anymore. It just freezes when the Lenovo logo is displayed. I have tried a factory reset from the boot menu, cache wiping etc. The warranty is already expired, of course.


I could imagine to install a completely fresh Android from the SD card but I can not find any download link. Lenovo only offers the source codes. How nice, but I need the readily compiled version...


Any suggestions are very appreciated!

Thank you!

Hello jamdy17,


thanks for this fast response! Smiley Happy

So you say I can install the souce codes directly without compiling in advance? Are they compiled during installation?

This is a quite new information to me and would indeed solve my problem.

Doesn't seem like I can install the source code directly. That would have been a wonder Smiley Wink


Any other links? Isn't there any single pre-compiled android package for my tablet out there?


Th enext question would be: how can I contact Lenovo when my warranty is expired? I always return back to this forum or a page saying that my warranty is expired. No mail, no phone, no chance to contact Lenovo directly so far. There also doesn't seem to be a local dealer near me...

How I restored the LENOVO TABLET 2 1050L on 23/07/2018

1. I received from the LENOVO Laboratory a tablet that started with the Intel Atom® Processor Z3745 BIOS home page
2. I installed the INTEL Platform Flash Tool Lite on a think-pad equipped with windos7-64bit, downloading the PhoneFlashToolLite_5.5.2.0.rar file, and running the PhoneFlashToolLite_5.5.2.0_win32 executable. exe
3. From the Lenovo's Russian website: ''
I selected the following link: YT2-1050L_S100192_151119_ROW-PC
4. From the page: http: // I downloaded the file: YT2-1050L_S100192_151119_ROW-PC.7z
5. I unzipped the file with the PW =
6. I have obtained the folder: YT2-1050L_S100192_151119_ROW-PC from which I selected the flash tool lite with the file: flash-blankphone.XML
7. I inserted the USB extension of a USB-microUSB cable into the USB socket of the computer
8. By pressing the Vol + Vol- keys on the tablet at the same time, I inserted the microUSB end of the cable into the tablet
9. At this point the tablet automatically enters in fastboot mode that is highlighted by a black screen with the very small inscription fastboot
10. On the PC, proceed by clicking on the button: Start to flash
11. The Flash Tool has successfully loaded the flash memory at 100% and the tablet after assuming different states (result OK, erase system, receive data, flash system etc ...) is RESTARTED.
12. I performed the OTA update at the last SW level it worked and EVERYTHING went well
I report the status of the tablet and PC in the following images. I attach to this task list the movie of flash memory execution.

Re: Yoga Tablet 2-1050L: Android download

Well thanks for your descriptions but there you said (russian website) I found these two lines:



  • Версия прошивки для использования на планшетах уже имеющих ОС 5.0
  • Данную прошивку нельзя применять для планшетов с ОС 4.4


It means that I can't do any things!?

the android version is 4.4.2 ... my tablet got stuck on an update (12MB) auto download... auto restart...reboot... then update installation failure... Smiley Frustrated

It's annoying me every hour...


Help me what should I do...?!
