Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus Android OS Update

2019-07-05, 19:40 PM

Hi

 

Could someone please kindly confirm if this tablet has now been updated to Oreo 8.0 or 8.1?

 

There seem to be confusion as to the exact version. If Yes is there a changelog of changes & improvements?

 

And apart from the visual UI changes has there been know enhancements to the screen (quality and calibration seem "off" and inaccurate and look "artificial"), audio (speakers could be a bit louder and better sounding), performance (app loading & memory management could be better), battery life (First few days of the Oreo update was apparently poor) and the lack thereof of full dark mode.

 

Are there any planned 9 Pie update for this tablet?

 

Cheers.

Hi. According to the Lenovo matix the tablet is completed, meaning we will not get PIE - unless the matrix changes. The tablet has gotten additional updates after the initial upgrade to Oreo.  The latest security is at April 5, 2019. 

 

The latest is 8.1

Keep wifix on, reboot everyday, check for updates daily. You'll eventually get it.

Wifi kept on, Battery life above 30%, rebooting it everyday after work.

 

This is the 4th day and still no updates received.

 

Still stuck at 7.1.1.

You can try this:

If that doesn't work you can try changing the time zone on your tablet. Example: if you're in eastern time zone change to something in china, or select a European country. Then try the steps in youtube again. ( Change back to your time zone after updating of course )

Understood.

 

But what time zone shall I set my tablet to? (N.B. I live in the UK)

 

Also, after watching the video I am unable to find Google Services Framework on my tablet.

To find the system apps go to settings / apps. Click up in the right hand corner and choose all apps, or include system apps - something like that, I can't remember the exact wording and I'm not using that OS presently.

 

After choosing all, you should be able to find it in the list. 

 

It doesn't matter what time zone you choose. Try hong kong if it's in the list. Try Eastern. I'm in Eastern and received the update, maybe it will work for you.

I have looked "All Apps" and I am still unable to find that Google Framework as mentioned in the video. The video is 6 years old so it is not too helpful.

 

I have tried changing the time zone and still didn't helped at all.
