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.
