Software update for A2109A - how to install from external sd?

2013-08-24, 12:48 PM

I bought my wife and son an A2109A tablet each just a few days ago. I immediately did an ota update. When I checked if there any further updates it said the tablet had the latest software from 297 days ago.

 

I see everyone on forums talking about a jellybean release for this tablet so I had a look on Lenovo's site and sure enough, there is an update released on 20th Feb 2013 with the filename a2109_jb_gpl_rc1_227.tar.bz2. I downloaded this, put it on an ecternal sd card and booted into recovery mode. The tablet did a search for an update, found it but couldn't verify the update. I chose the "install from external storage" option, but it couldn't see the file. I renamed the file to "update.zip" and tried again but it aborted again both automatically and manual install.

 

What do I need to do to install this update?

You tried to install the kernel source on your tablet? You can't do that, What OS are you running? if you don't have jb, the system update should allow you to update.

The problem is, lenovo's site is next to useless. It just tells you there are files but  not what they are, what they're for or how to install them. Thanks for the heads up, I could've been in for a very nasty surprise.

You can't. Your tablet has Jelly Bean 4.1.1. I tried to install those files but after of many work I realised that muy tablet got the last update when I turned on first time. I've been searching for a new update on kitkat but they are no official and I'm afraid about of correc performance. Regards
