Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus Oreo update

Well dear jcthrower, just because you wish you didn't have the verizon model doesn't make it a non-verizon model. Anyway, enjoy the wait for your software update.

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus Oreo update

The TB-8704V may have been distributed by Verizon in the US (thanks for the earlier link), but it's also the model sold by Best Buy in Canada (no Verizon affiliation whatsoever).

Ha.  l48, what are you 15, real mature buddy. Don't be mad at me because you are wrong. 

 

I didn't come on here for high school drama, I just came on to see if anyone with the V model got the update.

 

Fingers crossed I get the update.

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus Oreo update

Got the Android 8.1 update earlier this morning, downloading went smoothly but after installing it my Tab 4 8 Plus device will not boot, it's stuck in the "Lenovo" initial screen. Seems bricked. Great.

How should I recover it? any instructions anywhere on how to manually install stock firmware?

 

edit

Model is 8704F, tried recovery mode (hard reset), still bricked.

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus Oreo update

You can try recovering it with the Lenovo Moto Smart Assistant. You'll need a Windows machine to do so.

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus Oreo update

Thanks, I am on it now.

My tablet is in fastboot mode. Trying to work the rescue program. Not the best working program (or is it just me)

 

 

Lenovo Moto Smart Assistant does not list the tab4 (or any know tablet) in the rescue settings

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus Oreo update

Confirming, tablet is probably not supported by this application.

Great, any other ideas besides throwing it out of the window?

 

Tab4 8 plus stuck on lenovo logo does not boot after update to 8.1 (or factory reset)

Re: Lenovo Tab 4 8 Plus Oreo update

Indeed, tablet is a brick now. I've opened a support ticket with Lenovo support, hope they get back at me, will update here when/if they do so. I suggest you'd do the same.
