Lenovo Pad P11 (J606F). Where can I download old firmware?

2021-03-11, 15:56 PM

I want to find old firmware TB-J606F_S000145_201105_ROW (TB-J606F_USR_S000145_2011050014_Q00287_ROW)

 

There is unfinished "productivity mode" with toolbar buttons, but without "windowed app mode". Very very convenient It is a great replacement for standard navigation.

But I can't find where to download this firmware version.

I know what can happen if I decide to downgrade the firmware. And I can decide if the benefit outweighs the risk. Incomplete "productivity mode" is very productive navigation.

 

After all , older firmware versions can be found in Internet. But not this concrete version.

 

I cannot say for sure if I will make the downgrade. But if I can't get used to the usual one with the same productivity , then I would like to have possibility to downgrade

Good day.

 

In my experience, I have never seen prior firmware versions for tablets (or phones) available for download from Lenovo.

 

Regards.

You may already know this now, given your last response but you can download older firmware versions from this unofficial mirror > https://mirrors.lolinet.com/firmware/lenovo/Tab_P11/TB-J606F/

 

The version you’re after (TB-J606F_S000145_201105_ROW) is not listed however. I read somewhere else that this version may be bugged (someone couldn’t update via OTA). I guess if you do find this firmware elsewhere then the bug might be to your advantage.

 

You probably already know this also, but I would reconsider the pros/cons of permanently remaining on an older firmware version. Perhaps an app like Taskbar may help? > https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.farmerbb.taskbar

Taskbar - not such a convenient replacement. It works more like a launcher than a taskbar - the closed application does not disappear from the taskbar. In addition, it does not replace the current navigation method, but adds its own bar above. I use button navigation because gesture navigation is broken so far, so I get 2 bars. Maybe in the next OTA will be repaired, but maybe not.

 

At the same time, applications do not know anything about this bar and do not adjust their sizes so that this bar does not overlap them. It would be great if "productivity mode" had the ability to turn off windowed mode, but it is unlikely that this will ever happen.
