Re:M8 tablet android 10 update

Has anyone received the OTA fix for the 8505X or 8505F that was supposed to have been released last week, which was previously supposed to have arrived by the end of March, which we've been waiting for for over 4 months now?

Neither my wife nor I received OTA updates for our 8505F tablets. I gave up and downloaded and installed the update via Rescue and Smart Assistant, but my wife doesn't want to start from scratch after completely wiping her tablet. There are too many reports on this forum about the need for a factory reset after such a major OTA update...

 

Build number is TB-8505F_S300118_210306_BMP

@Ala_Lenovo 

 

On 30 March, you said that the OTA fix would arrive that week.  It didn't.  I appreciate what you implied about updates arriving on different devices at different times, but this is now beyond a joke.

 

When exactly is this OTA fix going to arrive?

My wife's TB-8505F received the OTA update last night 16th/17th April, over two weeks after I updated my TB-8505F using Rescue and Smart Assistant.

I received OTA update as well but still did not fix issues with widgets not updating correctly.  Has turned me off on the whole Lenovo line of products.  Potty, because I really like this little tablet.

Lenovo Tab M8 TB-8505F Android 10

 

Build number is TB-8505F_S300118_210306_BMP

 

I did the update a couple of days ago from Settings/System/System Update and installed the new build. All looks OK. My calender widgets are now updating overnight and I am getting many more notifications.

@Ala_Lenovo  When will there be a system update for the TB-8705F model that fixes widgets? Will it also fix the DRM issues with other video streaming apps?

When 10 automatically installed on my M8, it was problematic so I reverted to 9.

I decided to try the latest update of 4/21 - TB_8505FS_S300177_210306 and used the Rescue and SA app to do a rescue to get a clean install.

Everything is working well for me. 

Strangely, swiping right or left is kind of static, no flow, just sort of snaps to the next screen.

Also wallpaper is static, doesn't flow with the screen either.  Feels like I'm back on jellybean.

Just updating is keeping old problems, best to completely reinstall.
