    Hi :)

    I just notice today that LePan service has released the 1/9/2012 the New firmware v. 4626
    I wonder if anybody has tried the instalation of this firmware.

    As you know, I have some problems with my TC970 such as; sleep of death and some freeze up screens...Some weeks ago, the LePan service told me that they were working on a new version of Firmware to fix this bugs. Do you think this one could be "the" firmware?

    Anyway, I think I´ll give a try tomorrow with the 4626. I mean, what can I loose?

    I updated both my 970's with the new firmware. they seemed to run fine with no problems. I just received our new le pan II's so the old ones are going back. I would do the update if I were you.

    The update did seem to help with some stability issues and WiFi - there is actually yet another one that was leaked by a former employee just yesterday... so I would certainly flash the latest official one and see.

    I've got the firmware and instructions file downloaded (though have had no problems with wireless connection on WPA2 or freezing so far). I've held off doing it because I've got a question about it erasing the card. Does that mean all the apps that came with the tablet and the ones I've added will all be erased? I can't seem to find any information on this.

    ETA: sorry to jump on OP's post especially as I posed the question on another thread that I immediately lost track of and I see it's been answered there. My bad and apologies.

    Since I haven't had any stability or connection issues, and mine has worked perfectly since day one, is there any reason for me to upgrade to this? If there's no benefit, I kinda prefer to leave well enough alone...but if there is a benefit, I'd prefer to have it.

    If your tablet is working without issues I would not update it.

    ...try that.

    But as the man said, I wouldn't bother updating unless you are having issues.

    For me, the 4626 did not fix any of my problems, and the latest unit I got (my third one - I've returned two of these to amazon already) is working fine with the 4431, so thats staying right where it is. I downloaded a copy of 4749 to my computer just in case something goes wrong in the future, but thats it.

    Sandmonkee, people are having trouble seeing that post since it's on the XDA LePan Users Social group; which can only be seen once someone registers at XDA, and then finds and joins the group.

    It's worth checking out, as there's a lot of interesting info and discussions.

    I have installed the leaked firmware, and it's running fine for me. Solved a problem I had with Static IP not working, works now.

    Beware this is _not_ an official, Le Pan sanctioned firmware version. It wasn't supposed to be publicly available.

    Disclaimer apart, it seems to work fine, and they are fixing bugs slowly. Sadly they are now concentrating on the new tab models, and dropped version upgrade plans for the TC970.

    If you are brave enough to take the plunge, the binary files are here :

    HI

    I forget to tell my experience with the firmware 4626
    As I said. I had very problems with My TC-970, such as: Sleep of death and freeze up system
    Since I installed the 4626, amazing thing...I use my tablet all day with none of that problems.
    I found the system more stable, even when I push it with some tricky Apps like the MAME emulator
    Ok, maybe the screen hangs in that app occasionally, but I just give one touch the power buttom quiclky and it works again!

    I´m using the 4626 since 4 days and I think the Lepan crew fix many bugs. I believe my many rants messages served as something :D
    Since I have no problems with "Sleep of death" anymore, I set up yesterday the screen to 2 minute to go to sleep, but I found that this makes the System more prone to freeze up, so I just back to the setting of 30 minutes...just to be sure (I spend some more battery, but what the heck).

    Well, this is my testimony. Hope it helps someone
    Cheers! :)

    ^---- Post above updated, as the other download link was broken. This one works. ;)

    Edit : Also added a mirror of the file in another server, for redundancy. Link on post above, or here :
