"How much to do mine?" What does it mean?

Please go to https://forum.xda-developers.com/thinkpad-tablet/development/rom-linea
geos-16-0-lenovo-tab4-8-plus-t3950430 

and read carefully through the thread and decide yourself. It took me 2 hours and I
am knowledgeble, but my previous tablets were not encrypted. This tablet is always
encrypted and the 4 digit pin number which you will give during the installation, 
encrypts and decrypts the memory storage. 

If you want something save before you do anything, add a formatted memory card, whi
ch is never encrypted. I am now at android 10 used dirty flash from android 9. but 
I do not yet recommend it and do not use revision after june. 

Read carefully all the notes in the thread.  and take responsibility for your actio
n if anything goes wrong. Be willing to reinstall the stock firware if you almost b
rick the device. 

Before you do anything, go to developer mode and enable the USB debug interface. 

Any question, search the net. do not come here. All the information available on th
e net.

Elluis03 is asking you to upgrade his Tab4 8 the same way you upgraded yours, and requesting an estimate for what you would charge for your work.

I see. I hadn't read about that issue. I've been using the July release on my 8704X + for about a week now. It appears to be ok, so far.

For all you guys with the Tab 4 10 Plus that are stuck with no updates to a later version of Android OS, then the following may be of help:

 

https://forum.xda-developers.com/thinkpad-tablet/development/lineageos-16-0-lenovo-tab4-10-plus-t3923394

 

I'm no stranger to rooting, unlocking bootloader and flashing custom roms and I have now found time to do exactly that with my Tab, it is now running Linage OS Version 17.1-20200731_170316-UNOFFICIAL-TBX704 which is Android 10. 

This link is for Android 9 but further down the post you will find another link for the newer versions of Android, version 10.

 

The Tab is as fast if not faster than before, as far as I can see every thing is working fine. So it just shows the hardware inside is more than capable of running new versions on Android.

 

If you do decide to have a go at unlocking the bootloader and flashing the Lineage custom ROM make sure you follow all the steps in the link above.
