It was checked. Unchecking it then rebooting and checking it again cured it, thanks.
I'm gonna stick with 7.1.1. it works like a charm especially with this controller that I bought for my son for Christmas. No lag at all even with retroarch. He loves playing my old console games with this controller. It works great with a lot of android games as well.
Thanks again. May try this down the road.

Lenovo Tab4 8 Oreo 8.1 Downgrade to Nougat 7.1.1
For those that find this thread in search of help, the only things I found slightly diffrent than Wiznoodles instructions were I searched for and downloaded MiFlash 2015.10.28.0 as the link that was provided was to an updated version and I wanted to use exactly what he did.
Also, when selecting the images folder in MiFlash it will not actually list the title of the image file, only the containing folder so don't get confused by this, everything worked flawlessly.

Yeah, I've been flashing miui devices with miflash for a few years, so my version is older than the link I provided. But the one at the link, 2016 version, is also confirmed to work with our lenovo tablets. Newer versions to 2016 may give issues.

My Outlook eamail would flash "seems to shut down all the time. ..." I put it back to factory reset and it cleared.
Now a new problem is I get a "rainbow" screen instead of shutting of the screen.

When I select the Images folder of the firmware in Miflash, it remains empty... :-( Any idea why?
I don't understand anything to QFil, so I try "Lenovo Moto Smart Assistant" which can download and install a version s000042_180906... It seems to be before the Oreo 8.1 update, where can I check?
Maybe easier than MiFlash.
(I have the Tab4 8 plus LTE TB-8704X.)

Jetlink, yes I unzip the file with the password. I have read the thread. ;-)
Wiznoodle, I have notice for the no space folder, I even try to move Images at root: D:\Images\ but no errors, nothing happens.
With Lenovo Assitant, it remains 5 hours of downloading! 2,8GB, I will tell you!
