Don't upgrade Tab M10 FHD Plus to Android 10 - problems.

2020-11-17, 15:34 PM

Hi.

I've got tablet Lenovo M10 FHD Plus. Its quite new tablet with Android 9 on the board. Two days ago my tablet received update to Android 10 and unfortunately they spoiled this tablet functionality. Its almost useless. Why? After this upgrade there is no notifications at all and widgets are not updating. Nobody can contact you by social media like Messenger, Skype, WhatsApp. All processes are killed by the system. I tried everything and I'm not beginner. Finally I established this system as fresh new one. Its was a lot to do to install all applications back manually and... nothing helped!

So, if I want my widgets to be active I must start each particular apk but after some time is closing.

On weather apk is all the time the same hour and temperature. Mails are not coming - I must start and check it manually. All processes are killed by the system but all applications are working normally if open.

I think how to make downgrade back to Android 9. Hope they will give fixing update soon.

At the moment my advice is: DON'T MAKE UPDATE THIS TABLET TO ANDROID 10 !!!

One problem more found.

 

After the update to Android 10, when you close the tablet case, the screen doesn't switch off. When you open it, the screen stills switch on like before.

 

Problem only happen closing the tablet case.

Yes, it's true but in my case not always. When in battery charging mode the screen is all the time on.

Re:Don't upgrade Tab M10 FHD Plus to Android 10 - problems.

I loved my M10 Plus (notice past tense)

then it automatically upgraded to Android 10, and it is now as cumbersome and unusable as my old Asus tablet (which is the reason I bought the Lenovo in the first place)

 

My question is: Can it be rolled back to Android 9, and how do you do that?

 

Thanks in advance if anyone can help!

My advice is to wait a month or two for the next update. They should give us fixing update. Another thing is they shouldn't give this system for users yet. 

 

The screen should fade after 30s and I noticed that if I put it on the table the screen is ON even after minutes and I must turn it off manually. New bug.

Info update 20.11. 

I've done again full hard reset but this time using 3 bottoms vol+ vol- and power (first reset was soft). This reset repaired problem with not fading screen. 

So I established again just brand new Android 10 (fresh and clean). Result: Screen is fading our after 30s as it should be. Unfortunately the problem with not refreshing widgets is as before as well as lack of notifications. Additional issue I noticed is that there is no diod light notifications as well. Light notifications don't work at all !!! One thing more - all widgets and notifications made by Google are working normally - but only those. LED light notifications don't work at all. Only red / green while charging. Please give my remarks to Lenovo programmers to help them in fixing it and I hopefully wait for system update which will fix this problems. Regards.
