Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus Android OS Update

Some of what you said may actually make sense. It may be the software or the firmware or the "model" being EE or as you suggested "Eastern Europe". BTw, mine is the Wifi & LTE model.

 

I rung Lenovo Tech Support. Bascially I told the person everything I have done so far is reset the bloody tablet 3x (to see if it can quash any factory bugs), do the Google Services Framework trick (to forcibly update the tablet OTA) and connect the tablet to the Lenovo Smart Assistant on my laptop. NONE had worked.

 

So, I had no choice but to return it.

@angel76ph, I  wasn't referring to you when I spoke of wifi only, and the EE software. I was talking to incognito because he actually showed a screenshot of the about tablet screen. I did presume though that you probably do have the EE software as well, but I am aware you have the lte version. 

 

Another point to mention is the security patch level in incognito's screenshot. It's at January 1 2018! OMG,  a year and a half old!  IF this tablet was getting updates, at the very LEAST it should have had updates to Nougat for security updates. The tablet should be able to update nougat without issues. 

 

ROW software was updated well beyond that before we got oreo. Oreo is now at April 2019. So that in itself would make me question updates to this particular EE release.

Your assumption is right. And yes I do have the firmware version with the "EE" at the end.

 

We can question and wonder all we want. The fact of the matter is Lenovo has not given me any answer to my predicament. I have already retiurned the tablet and have no intention of buying another one. Gutted and dissapointed. 

 

Planning on buying my next tablet...a Huawei Mediapad M5.
