    Hi everyone, I have not used my tablet for twelve months and there is now 390 mb of system upgrades to download but the problem is the IP where I live is super slow 24/7 and the download stops due to slow connection. Is there an app. or some way to make the upgrade resume until the download is complete? I have looked at various download managers but found nothing that would do the job. Thanks in advance for any solution.

    I too had the same problem......my connection would just not handle the large update....

    I ended up going to a coffee shop that has free wifi & did it there.....I took my charger (my update said to be plugged into power to complete the installation) & completed the entire download & installation in less than 15 min......

    It worked for me.....:D.....

    Welcome to the forum

    Some vendors eventually post the firmware so that it could be downloaded to your PC, but obviously that would be slow too. Maybe a public hotspot or a friend's house?
