    Question Chances on 4.2.2 Update?

    What do you guys think? I'd love or Lenovo to push out the update, but have heard from some that the chances are slim.. Is it slim because they don't want to support the tablet further or just because the process of pushing out an update like that is a lot of work?

    What are your thoughts?

    Thanks guys!

    4.1.1 was a total surprise to everyone outside Lenovo. There was no prior official announcement that they were or were not doing ongoing development and if there were leaks, they got little or no press. So pretty much all you hear are just guesses. Here is my optimistic guess - because the Nexus tablets released running Jelly Bean, Lenovo was left in the lurch with all the others that are "nearly cutting edge" with ICS. They released JB because they want this to be their leading edge consumer tablet and compete with Nexus. So they are hard at work on 4.2. Here is my pessimistic guess - they wanted to release 4.1 the whole time and just got ICS ready for production first and didn't want to slip the release date. So ICS was a stop gap for a not quite ready JB. Once JB was ready, they switched to it and they are done except for maintenance if needed. Again, both are just guesses.

    Maybe we should all email Lenovo and tell them that we want new update XD

    You never know, maybe they will release 4.2.2 when it comes out, maybe never gonna happened... You never know unless there is someone who works for Lenovo

    re: Chances on 4.2.2 Update?

    I said this before, but I don't think they would retask their development team already. I think they're cranking away on the next update. But... I wouldn't bet money on it

    Hello

    My apology for the off topic question. I just found out my OfficeDepot purchase (bought in January) has 4.0.4 installed. I read from the other threads that 4.1.1 is available for OTA install. Is this something a newbie can do alone? Being so new, I am afraid to brick it. Is it similiar as to doing a Windows update? Is there something I need to watch out for? Is it going to ask me bunch of questions that I have no idea of and freeze in the middle of it?

    Thanks,
    MG

    Yes, it is easy. Go into System settings, About Tablet (bottom of list) then press System updates on right, Check Updates and then follow directions. Do it while plugged into charger with a reliable fast network connection.

    Well, despite the fact that I was wrong about JB being faster (ICS is faster on the benchmark I consider most relevant, but JB performance was still very good), I haven't run into anything that would make me feel like upgrading was a mistake.

    After my last talk with them, I really doubt there will be an update, The worst news was what we are based off of, kind of blew me away, very disappointed to say the least. I though we were based off of Asus, but we are not.
