Hello,

Much to my surprise, my Toshiba Excite 7.7 received Jelly Bean last night.

Version 4.1.1000121313.01

About 360MB

It is a virtually unaltered version of JB. Some Google apps were updated: You Tube, Google Magazines, etc.

The tablet does have a better Quadrant score.

However:

1) The JB "Phablet Mode" is now the default
2) Toshiba did not fix the varying brightness while using the browser issue
3) The Super AMOLED+ screen is still not calibrated very well (look at any B&W picture)

Even so, I am thankful that Toshiba has provided a current update on a tablet that may have been left for dead.

I bought mine a few days ago as a Nexus 7 successor, main reason was the much better and bigger screen and the build quality.

Off course I was very sceptical wrt 4.0 VS. 4.2, especialy because I dont had any small hope that the "Silent Tablet Newby Toshiba" will announce or even release a newer Android Version anytime.

But now, Long Story short: Thumbs Up Toshiba!

Looking forward for an European Release for the "Toshiba AT270 7.7"

Cheers

I wish there was an option to put 4.1.1 in tablet mode rather than in phone mode; and yo could remove the search bar. Other than that ahven't noticed any issues yet.

Just saw [1] that also the North America "Excite" Variants are using AT270 as model number, which is also used here in Europe.

Does this also mean that the 4.1 Rollout is a global one?? :thumbup:

It yes, anyone found an official document which list the serialnumber groups and the specific Info which one will receive the update message during the next weeks?

HTC released such a list f.e. in the past for their One Series..

Hello,

Would it be possible to create a DUMP of this update in order to update our AT270 ?

Thank you.
