    Hi there
    I am relatively new to tablets. I have a T301, and mostly love it. Just still learning.
    But, this morning I noticed a litle green down arrow in the lower right corner. When I click on it, it shows that firmware is downloading at 64%, and seems to be stuck there.

    Questions
    How do I know what's downloading?
    How do I stop it?

    This makes me a little nervous, as when I first got the tablet I downloaded recent updates, and it wiped out many settings that I had. Was frustrating, to say the least!

    Thanks!:confused:

    If it's downloading firmware I can't say for certain which firmware but there is no way to stop it. You can postpone installing it but it will nag you to death. My suggestion would be to do a hard reset then let it update and do another hard reset after the update.

    This link will help with the hard reset and following the instructions will NOT cause any loss of data or settings.
