Hi guys

My friend has this tablet and it is now stuck on the boot screen after a failed update.

It has cherished pictures on of her dad who recently passed away.

Is there anyway to get the tablet working again or at least be able to plug it into PC so the files can be recovered at all?

Or will it need to have a factory reset now?

Thanks

Josh
Exactly what kind of update failed?

It was a system update I believe.

I have tried everything but with no luck, so have just tried to reset to factory settings / erase everything from the droid boot menu, but even after that it is still stuck on the boot screen?

Do you think it is bricked and needs to go to Lenovo to be sorted out?

Thanks!

You should still be able to flash a fresh stock ROM to the tablet and it will be OK. The official Lenovo prescribed way to do that is via the Lenovo Moto Smart Assistant (LMSA). Using that tool, you want to perform what's call a "rescue". That process will automatically download the latest stock ROM and tell you what you need to do the flash it to the tablet. The tool isn't perfect and has been known to give people trouble. There are alternate ways to flash the stock ROM. Everything you need to know about this tablet is well documented over on the unlock/root thread:

Let me know if you have any trouble.
