    So, I recently rooted my Ideos Tablet, and I just found out that Huawei will possibly update to 2.2 or 2.3 on the tablets.

    Long story short, if the update does happen, will I still get the update if I'm rooted?

    You should have no problem. Worst case is you may need to re-root after the update.

    Thanks, I'm glad to hear that.

    One more question, will I be notified about the update the same way that an "unrooted" user would be notified?

    Best I can say is probably. Rooting is different than flashing, if you flash then you probably wont.

    I thought that Huwaei stated they would not release a 2.2 update for the S7 tablet and would release a 2.2 with a new tablet they are going to be releasing in 2011 Q1? Someone correct me if i'm wrong. I just hope someone could create a custom 2.2 rom. I miss flash :*(

    From what I have read they do have a 2.2 scheduled but not until 1Q 2011... so Jan, Feb or March...

    Maybe they will just take us to 2.3 :)

    This was probably based on a report from Taiwan from a comment made by a marketing person from Huawei. We have a senior engineer on the S7 that is a member of this forum, and there will be an official upgrade coming.

    So glad to hear it. If Archos really did a 2.2 upgrade I think that may put a fire under Huawei to get the update done faster. It is such a better unit than the Archos and I would hate to see them loose market share over something they most likely have available now.

    How would the "unrooted" be notified by Huawei company? Is it an automatic thing or would I have to do stuff to the device once i know that the update is here. Will I learn about it via my frequent visits to the forum?
    Thank you so much!

    We will make sure that the update is prominently mentioned here.
