List of Apps missing after update 829 (Uninstall / Reinstall issue)

2011-09-07, 6:34 AM

All,

 

I understand that after applying the 829 update via OTA, there have been some app crashes (even preloaded ones) And the workaround as to uninstall them then reinstall them. However after uninstalling them, you can't find them in the Lenovo App Store or Android App store.

 

Appreciate if everyone can post the app that crashed and the reinstall was needed but not found on Lenovo App Store or Android App Store.

 

Please follow the format below so it's easier for everyone to view this page. I will add those apps into a list and compile them for engineering to assist on it.

 

Stock Apps which are not found on Lenovo / Android Market.

 

1. Drawing pad - avail in android market but not free

2. Hardwood card games - avail in android market but not free

3. Docs to go - avail in android market but not free

4. PrintShare - avail in android market but not free

5. All Arcsoft apps - not available in either



 

Thanks All

JameZ

I think there were a few others but these are the ones I remember.

 

Thanks JameZ for doing this, hopefully we can get these apps back :)

@wrench,

That's weird ... Let me check with the Asian manager here. Apparently HK is getting 822 update as well.

@why_14,

You're welcome, please keep posting if you know any apps which are missing. Appreciate it

The Youtube app is dead for me, along with the list above. 

 

Not having Documents To Go is very painful.

 

Is there an ETA on a fix for these apps? Or is there a way to revert to the previous kernel build?

Fixed. I had to do a factory reset, which restored to the 829 build. All the apps seem to be back and working. So, another destructive update -- not very satisfactory!

I was hoping that I wouldn't have to do that. Anyone from Lenovo can tell us when the next update is available? If it is coming soon then I'll wait to lessen the pain of redownloading and setting everything back up again....:(

@wrench,

Try changing your timezone to US then doing an update and see if it helps. I've manage to update 1 K1 from 725 to 829. Let me know.

@why_14.

I've received the K1, tested it. deleted a few apps from the preload (NFS and some other games) did the update to 829. Other apps such as Doc2Go was fine. I tried doing a factory reset and the previous uninstalled apps got reloaded.

I guess that's the only way to go around this. Have not receive any word on the next update yet.
