Reboot to bootloader, enter recovery, attempt a factory reset.

I got bk my tablet today, quite fast job. They replaced my motherboard and back cover. The tablet is still on 7.1.1. Now I am hesitant to install 8. Furthermore the lady at the customer service said not all models can upgrade, so advise me not to.. wah lau.. what should I do..

crap lah... if the models cannot be upgraded then by right it should not prompt u to upgrade to new firmware wat... unless u ownself (or the seller) flashed out the original firmware with a new one and it ain't quite match ur hardware...

I bought a Lenovo Tab exactly 2 years ago - my first Lenovo. Crappy product; the power switch has failed and it may be due to the motherboard which costs $400 to change + $107 for labour. If I send it in to diagnose, it will cost $53. Leaves me no option but to dump it and get a more reputable Korean tablet - new and better, at about $300!

Would not touch another Lenovo product - not even with a 6 ft pole!

mine still working... although nowadays if the tablet gets too warm it will cause the device to randomly register touchs (i think it is known as ghost touch) on the screen even though i didn't touch it at all... (the first time i encountered it... it scared me as i thought someone managed to hack into my device...)

otherwise it still works fine for me... but i think i need to start looking for a replacement as i dunno if my device can last for another year or not...

may i know wat is the $300 korean tablet you using...? is it 8" and support LTE/voice calls...? because these 2 are the specs that i looking for...

wacky

I just got a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10" with LTE for $300 from Korea so no warranty. Very nice.
