I can not download the firmware with 9 android. Neither from the tablet, nor through the computer (lenovo moto smart assistant), although there is a notification.
The tablet was updated before this in May.
Is there a way to update the tablet forcibly?
Or return the factory firmware, the update should go from it without any problems.

Hey if everyone wants there to be a device forum for the Lenovo Smart Tab P10 I would suggest posting a request in *** New Device Forum Requests ***.

Good news, it appears that the Pie bootloader can be unlocked with the command:

fastboot oem unlock-go

This is definitely new to the Pie bootloader. The command "fastboot oem enable-unlock-once" no longer works.

Use this at your own risk! I just unlock the bootloader on my test P10 and it completely wiped the device.

I'm am now working on root for Pie. If I'm able to achieve root, I will write up a guide.

My Lenovo Smart Tab P10 (TB-X705F) running Android 9 (Pie) is rooted and is working just fine. Writing up the guide now. Hopefully I'll have it done later today.

Anybody who feels comfortable using the fastboot tool should be able to make this work without any problems. Be aware that it will require you to unlock the bootloader which will completely wipe the device. So, as always, you do this at your own risk. Make sure you back up your internal SD card and all Android and app data BEFORE you unlock the bootloader. I'll make sure to cover this again in the guide. The unlock command for the Pie bootloader is in my last post. Once you run that command, you are committed.

Attached are some screenshots showing root with BusyBox along with SafetyNet check success.

I have posted the unlock and root guide for the Tab P10:

[GUIDE] Unlock/Root Lenovo Smart Tab P10 (TB-X705F)

Many thanks to fidelis2 for helping to proof read the document and also being the first person to take the plunge by actually following the guide and successfully achieving root.

Have you had any luck downloading that OTA update? If it's still stuck, you may be able to work around the problem with the Lenovo Moto Smart Assistant tool. LMSA has the ability to download the stock ROM files and OTA updates. You can then push updates to the tablet via the USB cable. The LMSA tool is easy to find on the Lenovo web site in the support area.

By the way, the LMSA tool is very buggy. Don't get too frustrated if it fails to download the files or apply the updates. If you hit a wall using that tool, let me know. I finally got the tool to do what I wanted but it took a lot of trial and error.

I posted links directly to Lenovo's site for all of the available stock ROM files. Here's a LINK to that post.
