When I had this issue, none of my cards were irreprably damaged. All I had to do was to reformat them so that they could be reused, or to be more accurate, recorrupted.

 

Cheers

Also a new owner of a tab 4 8 plus. It's a fantastic machine, but didn't know about the sd card corruption. But fortunately saw this forum about this subject. I ran it with a small cheap sd card, installed it as a portable. And applied the Secret menu trick.

Rebooted it dozes of times and no corruption.

After that I applied all the updates, from june 2017 till december 2017. It has S000030 as a version number.

Someone said, the latest (december?) update fixes it all. The small sd card still has no corruption with all those reboots. And I'll put in a bigger sd card for day to day use.

Hope it's usefull info for someone.

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 plus major issue - micro SD corruption

Hello. I have the Tab 4 10 and my issue is that I cannot format and use the card as internal storage. It fails during the format process. The same card is used as internal storage on my Nokia 6 without any issue. 

Has anyone managed to format and use a micro SD as internal storage?  Is there any trick that makes sense? 

 

Thank you.

There is a tool Lenovo smart assistant, so you can download updates on a pc. Maybe usefull to save the file on the pc.

And on the tablet itself, you can go to the Settings and About. There should be a tab for Check for Updates. And it can update directly from the Lenovo servers.

Hi Tjok, The OTA update is always failed evwn i already try to redownload several time, meanwhile when i connect the tablet to pc there's a installer called mobile assistant, but it only allow me to browse the tablet but no option to download update.

 

Is there any file that i can update via twrp, adb, or fastboot flash?

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 plus major issue - micro SD corruption

I am updating a post from 11-29-2017.  My problem of being unable to successfully format a high-speed SD card on a Tab 4 8 plus has been solved.  Lenovo offered a system update this week and I installed it.  It was a 536 MB download and my build number is now: TB-8704V_RF01_171219.  The same Samsung Evo Plus 64 GB card that would not format in November now formats and works fine.  I have power cycled several times after moving apps and pictures to the new card.  Lenovo seems to have fixed the problem at least for my version of the hardware, which is the US 2GB Ram/16GB SSD model.

 

I am happy now and keeping the device.
