I gave up and reverted to Android 9, all is well now. Man, Lenovo, thanks for ruining my holidays. I had to fix 2 of these tablets.

If you aren't technically inclined don't even bother, it's rather simple but there are several caveats. I used the rescue and smart assistant along with that guy's method and it worked. You basically have the assistant DL the 10 ROM and replace the files in the folder with your manually downloaded 9 files (linked in that same thread) then have the assistant flash the 9 files thinking it's the Android 10 files.

 

That guy appears to be rooted, I am not and it still worked.

Have done a hard factory reset (which then allowed me to install the December update, previously this wouldn't show up even when manually checking for Android updates...)

+Folio case issue (not locking when closing) is fixed

+UI alignment issues are fixed (Search bars in app drawer, etc.) 

-Notifications still seem to be unpredictable at times

 

-The 'Smart Launcher' is a mess. See attached screenshot - here I've disabled 'Google App' (that newsfeed you find by swiping all the way left) from the Home Settings menu, yet the home screen still displays a dot for it as if it were enabled. There's lots of other annoying UI issues like this (plus the Smart Launcher's performance is terrible) so I've had to resort to using 3rd party launchers. 

-Also, you can't manually check for Lenovo updates. All you can do is turn Lenovo auto-updates on/off. This is really unhelpful when you're trying to troubleshoot!

The tablet updated a couple of days ago and since then the battery drains faster. It used to last a couple of days but now it seams that it lasts less than one (but probably I need to test it a bit more). Also it' s strange that fairmail works just fine in the background (worked even before the update) but signal and skype refuse to work.

Yes, more problems! "Settings" crashed constantly before the 2nd update and continues to do do. No matter how many times I try to open settings I am met with a blank page and eventually the "settings has stopped" message comes up. It happens every time the tablet is booted up, but other settings crash frequently as well, including android functions. This has been ongoing for close to two months now. The tablet is totally useless if I have no access to my settings. I either need a fix or a refund for the tablet I purchased the middle of June and that was functional for less than 5 months and now sits collecting dust. A waste of $150 if the issues aren't addressed and corrected.

I was attempting to respond to the Lenovo forum administrator's post asking if there were other issues...not sure if the reply went to her/him. Please see my post above this one for the issue(s).

Something has bothered me since reading your post this morning. You were on vacation and no one was monitoring this forum. This does not bode well for us.

 

It means that you are the single point of contact for these issues and that those in the development chain are at the least ambivalent about the issues that are being discussed here. Further, it implies that this is the only avenue of complaints that are reaching them and that they do not care about the issues of the release. Please correct me if I am wrong about any of these points.

 

I realize that Lenovo in and of itself is not a software company, perhaps with the exception of drivers. But that is not an excuse to release buggy software to your user community and then have us waiting for a response. Does Lenovo even maintain an in-house team for Android? Or do they farm it out on a per release basis.

 

Regardless, while I love your hardware, this series of snafus has given me (and I'm sure others) pause in purchasing devices other then Win-tel based products in the future.

 

Please convey to whomever may further up the food chain that this issue needs to be addressed and is causing us to question our future decisions of buying choices at both the personal and professional levels.
