Re: Ice Cream Sandwich for Ideapad K1

Mark;

 

It would be nice if you would also relay the requirement that the ICS image be approved by Google.

 

I submitted a problem to the Play market place with an app that was listed as incompatible with

my Lenovo K1 (Canada, V3.1) , and received the following answer:

 

The app that you're attempting to download is copy protected. Whenever a
device manufacturer releases a new update of the Android OS, it must be
submitted to Google for approval. Until the update is approved, devices
that receive the new update are unable to access copy-protected apps.

According to our records, the version of the Android OS that is installed
on your device has not been approved.

For more information, I recommend contacting your device manufacturer or
your carrier directly.

This was validated when I went back to the app developer. After some examination, they

determined that they liked did not need the copy protection. As soon as they removed that,

I could then load and run the application.

 

I now suspect that many apps that show as incompatible -- including my *banking* app, are

not limited by the capabilities of the tablet -- whose hardware is exemplary, it seems -- but are

simply limited by the fact that Lenovo did not get this release approved by Google. There are

a significant number of apps claiming support for v2.1 through 4.0, yet they all show as

incompatible with my K1 in Google Play (the app marketplace).

 

Lenovo is not a minor, fly-by-night operation. My netbook has been great, and our workplace

runs beautifully on your laptops.  To find that a major vendor such as Lenovo is not shipping

an approved version of Android boggles the mind.

 

As I noted -- please relay this as a requirement. I find it odd to have to even write this, but the

very existence of my shipped v3.1 tablet without this approval suggests that it is important to

be clear about things like this.

 

... Chris

hi Chris

Yes when it was released there was an issue with the Market and 3.1

I'm not completely sure but shouldn't you have gotten the 3.2 update? How long have you had the Tablet?

Can anyone confirm if Canada has 3.2 yet?

Ever since the 3.2 update and Play Store update I haven't had any issues yet. It also fixed the Movies not showing in the Market.

So I would think yours still 3.1 may be part of the issue.

Oh BTW ICS is v4, v3 is Honeycomb. :)

Also confirming that my Canadian K1 has 3.1

 

More specifically:

 

Model Number: K1
Android version: 3.1
Kernel version: 2.6.36.3
Build number: K1_A301_02_02_110930_CA

 

Finally, checking for system updates reports "Your system is up to date."

Not all K1s are being offered 3.2, even in the US.
Mine is still on 3.1, just today being offered an update TO 110829.

Nothing further is available when I check for updates.
