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

@LTGRO20 or anyone else...have you tried downgrading to Android 9? 

 

I read it should be possible using the Lenovo software and replacing the firmware zip file in the C:\Program Files\ with an older version, which you can download from websites.

I would like to revert to 9, never intended to update since Android 9 still has features that were removed by Google in 10 (clipboard managers for instance).

 

Any comment from the moderators here about how to do this? As it stands I have 2 of these (tb-8505F) tablets that are useless to me over the holidays. Tempted to reverse the charges on my cc and let them duke it out.

If we are going to revert back to Android 9 there needs to be a way to disable automatic updates. Is this possible?

Good point about turning off auto-update.

@RauliTop 

regarding your question: please read my post in this thread from 2020-12-21, 16:38 PM (addressed to garretta, who has yet to respond ...) re widgets and notifications. I have tested about 20 "time and date" widgets so far and I would say that about 80% of them do not work properly. However, some of them do work and I have no clue why ...

 

@Lenovo

I can't figure out what your intentions are. Do you test your software before you publish it?

However, once you have found a solution to your own problems and we all can continue using our tablets (at least those of us, who did not return them for a refund), do you have any plans regarding a generous compensation for your customers ... or at least the few remaining loyal ones? Your response appreciated!

After 24 hours of testing the last update the following things are still wrong:

  • No notification (Skype, New York Times, Accuweather)
  • IF the app is active, notifications SEEM to work
  • Widgets are not updating (Accuweather)

Having worked in the IT industry for 40-years, if I had done a rollout like this, I would be looking for a new job the following day!

 

Lenovo what I don't understand is why this is even occurring. This is YOUR hardware, Android 10 is STABLE and we are getting updates that resemble Windows 10, not Android!

 

You guys are losing your edge. I had the same type of issues with my Tab M10 Plus and trying to get the Sierra WiFi card to work! (It never did reliable!), even when I bought it from you!
