K1 is read only

2012-01-22, 3:10 AM

I am having crashing issies and have had problems with updates... any changes I make now are gone after a reboot. It tries downloaing the same email every reboot, all apps I remove show back up...

I broke down and decided to do a reset.  The reset has no impact, it boots up the way it was efore the reset... I dont know what to do from here...

Sometimes the updates take a while. How long did you wait?

What apps keep coming back? Sometimes the preinstalled ones might come back... I would hold off on any major reconfigurations until you've fnished the updates.

Apps not coming back it not a good description... 

it isn't as if they reinstall, it is if it never left. and I am not talking about pre-installed apps.

If I even put a file onto the filesyste, it is gone after a reboot.

 

The system has not updated yet (still at 13) I manually told it to check for updates. after downlaoding it didnt do anything (but that seems normal) later it reboted itself and got stuck with the chick saying "nvidia" for an hour.

 

I am hoping it will update itself and the problem will disapear.

pittss1c, tell us how it goes... though the symptoms don't sound encouraging. I've seen it stay on the lenovo screen for a long time, but I've never encountered the nVidia screen repeating.

 

If all else fails, give Lenovo Support a call.

Lenovo doesn't want to help you, trust me. They will hold your tablet for some days and say, 'hey we don't see any problem with your device. Enjoy!'.

This company just ignores every customer's issue. I'm really disappointed.

You may try to get a better and more stable WiFi connection and see if the update takes you that long.

It took me around 20 minutes. I mean the whole process.

I am not sure you understand, it can not be updated. No writes or deletes or changes to the filesystem are  persistant.

it can not be updated,wiped or any changes. (it is like groundhog day the movie at every boot)

 

The system is useless... I have even considered just rooting it and writing a new image to the drive, but it appears that that may not work as well... something is hellawrong.

 

Gonna have to send it back today.
