I remember when Lenovo was IBM and like HP, IBM Thinkpads would have continued support for years ... often times up to 6-8 years ... and even after that, all original manuals, drivers etc are still avail for download.

  1. Yes. This is indeed dissapointing. If I was to give a brief description of Lenovo products it would be great disposable devices. I bought this tablet and probably got one update after i bought it. That was about it. Soon after bought myself a Thinkpad thinking it was the most appropriate professional device. Well same story. Cant seem to accomodate all the users and they refuse to update their buggy Bios to support Linux...have also a thinkpad workstation. I had in mind turning over all of our office equipment into Lenvo but that idea is now forgotten. This Yogabook hardware is still good to get some love from Lenovo. I hope they make it happen or count me out from their ecosystem as well

While I agree that this is dissapointing I also understand that there might be hardware limitations to consider in regards to new versions of Android.  Appart from that, it's still unfortunate that Lenovo left users with a bug-infested final update and never bothered to release any patches.   Even more dissapointing is that they released the new Yoga Book C930 with the e-ink display but only made a Windows version of it.  I was really hoping that a new Yoga Book would emerge with the lastest Android OS.

 

At this point, if Lenovo does release a new Android based Yoga Book it'll either restore my faith in the company or be the nail in the proverbial coffin of my business dealings with them.   

 

It seems that all too often Lenovo releases products that feel more like half-baked prototypes, than fully polished gems.  And then they neglect to release patches to fix bugs for said products.  So if Lenovo can't get the next iteration of the Yoga Book Android Tablet right, then I'm done with them.

Where did you get that there are harware limitations to consider upgrading our YB to Android, not just 8, even 9? I think your are being too patient giving them another chance for another YB upgraded iteration. The best thing you can do it's jumping to another brand, I guess.

Hi All, I just picked up a Yoga Book device. So it appears Android 7.1.1 has been dropped from support. I suspect this will become an issue. In order to extend the life of the device, we should find a way to load Windows 10 (even though it's slower). 

 

It's just not acceptable to drop the device from support.

 

Lenovo has a loyal following and I personally have used their devices since 2002 !

 

Open Question to Lenovo: can you help us migrate from Android to Windows 10 on these devices ?

Surprised to receive a mail notification on this forum.
Thought no one is using the yogabook anymore.

It's a pity. But short of a class action suit, Lenovo will not even bother to reply to our messages.

The least they could do is open up their bios or specs sheet so that the open source community can breathe new life into this wonderful piece of technological beauty.

I stil use it every day and i am happy with the form factor.

But sadly enough after i bought it no updates anymore.

 

I hope they will consider at least to update the safe patches and kernel Version.

 

Maybe they will answer, because i also asked  many times 4 updates.

 

Sincerely Frits183
