MediaTek-based devices aren't that easy to brick. As long as the preloader stays intact, you can always reflash them with the SPFT. And even if you destroy the preloader, there are ways to recover, but they are beyond the abilities of most people.

 

Yes, that package does have the latest known preloader and bootloader. But you can also find them here in this much smaller file.

 

We've strayed very much off topic. Why don't you register at xda and we can continue this there. Or you could make a new topic in this forum.

 

 


Yes you are right, but NVRAM its not best in mediatek. One format and data are out. Do you have anyone utility to repair and edit IMEI and MAC permanently? Something like SNWrite?

So, a little update from me...

 

I did send back the 5.x tablet (Amazon), and my new one I'm trying to keep at 4.4 as long as possible.

 

 

The biggest differences why that 4.4 is way better for me:

 

- Battery seems to hold longer, for sure in standby

- Netflix didn't crash anytime untill know, where the 5.x crashed like 50% of the times (audio kept playing, video stopped).

- The tablet boots like 50% quicker (compared next to eachother).

-Screen seems to be a little better responsive.


What I don't like that much is the lack of "Smart Screen Lock", but I found an app that works decent.

 

So, for those buying one of these tablets, it is really enjoyable, only to bad the after-sales aren't like that.

 

 

 


I thing that screen responsive is soft problem. When I used test utility I dont have any problem. But when I can write some lette I must repeat every 3rd letter always. On my other tablets  from Samsung and Asus this is not. Worst what I have is this Lenovo. Tablet without good responsive touch sreen is not tablet! ,) Its like Windows 6.5 or older. :)

bonjour de la France

 

Hello from the France, I read you for several weeks,
 
and after having tried kitkat and lollipop I think I found one of the problems of this Tablet
It is overheating
 
 
made a test without a cover without window and ask your tablet on one
 
cold tile, no more problem with the wifi and I did many load about 5 GB wifi uninterruptible

Bonjour à toi babarjo,

 

Pourrais tu m'expliquer un peu plus, ma compréhension de l'anglais n'est pas terrible.

En ce qui me concerne ma tablette a l'origine en version KitKat était ok en Wifi. Depuis le passage en Lolipop le Wifi se plante aléatoirement, obligé de faire un marche:arrêt pour retrouver la connexion.

Elle a déjà fait 2 aller/retour au SAV de chez Lenovo et malgré une demande de la repasser sous Kitkat non effectuée, elle a toujours un Wifi défaillant.

Re: LENOVO TAB 2 A10-70 lollipop issues report everybody.

I've just bought this tablet and discovered this forum.

I'm a total trablet/android beginner - I don;t even have a smart phone, so touching, swiping, when to use 1 finger, 2 finger or hold ewtc area mystery.

 

So it seems even though lollipop has been out several months for the Tab2, it is still not advisable to allow the upgrade from kitkat.  Is that the same advice worldwide or do some countries have later version of lolipop that have fixed the issues - does the UK?

 

Also how do I stop it from automatically upgrading from kitkat (baronv on 08-05-2015 09:58 AM on the 1st page of this thread mentioned that their tablet simply  did the upgrade to lolipop without asking).  I haven't yet allowed my tablet to connect to my WiFi and have been looking for a setting where I can turn off auto upqrades without success.  Could someone please guide me to where I can do this.

 

Many thanks.

Your tablet does not update automatically, as far as I know.

Also, the latest Lollipop firmware is working fine for me and others.

 

Keep in mind that this is a support forum, i.e. most people who are here came here because they have a problem or complaint. However, there's a silent group of users (majority, I bet) out there who have no complaints...

I don't have : Settings, apps, all

 

I have Settinge - apps then a choice of Manage apps or Running Services or Preferred install location

 

Under Manage apps after swiping left 3 times I've found configupdater and system update.

 

Under System update I can select  - Force Stop or Disable, and I also have Show Notifications ticked

 

Does that mean it will notifty me If there is an update to be installed which I can then deny or  that it will notify me after an  updaqte has been completed?

 

I'm on Kit kat 4.4.4 and A10-70F_S000020_150401_ROW. if that's not the latest version of kitkat I'd like to be able to install the latest kitkat without then going on to install lollipop.  Will I be able to do that?

On Friday I threw a S8-50f in the bin, completely bricked, but being a champion for the underdog I thought I'd give LenovoTab another chance, cos when the S8-50f worked it was very impressive, so I bought this A10-70f today,thinking that the OS was still kit kat, wrong it's the bane of my life lollypop the worst OS ever,
