Boys ,but are you sure is a official update?
Why in the screenshot of other user says "snapdragon 8250" ?!?!?!
Ours is snapdragon 870.....
I think this update is not for ours j716f.... Maybe compatible but sure not official....maybe alpha version....
If someone that use this update give us feedback..... every day use.....

If not ,for now not install this update!.... We don't know where it comes.....

I took this chance to try ZUI 14, however there were definitely a lot of issues I've encountered.

It wasn't able to root, wi-fi gets broken, and other issues that were already mentioned here. [1](The Google Account issue that was mentioned here didn't happen to me, I got it first try.) I actually got TWRP to install in ZUI 14 (credit goes to @Ungeskriptet) however it had issues mounting the system partitions. This was the same issue that happened on Android 12-based GSIs on this tablet.

Though I'm actually curious that the update moved the whole OS to Slot B instead of staying in Slot A. The boot logo also changed to Qualcomm's logo instead of the usual Lenovo logo, as well as the unlocked bootloader message not showing up after.

There were two new bootloader options too, one being booting into FFBM mode.

In conclusion, stay away from this specific ZUI 14 update for now until there is news of a more stable update.

[1] I might have been lucky the first try I installed ZUI 14. Now on other reinstalls, they don't seem to work now.

Can I update to zui 14 directly from stock zui 12 rom or I have to make all zui 13 updates before of the installation of zui14?
Sean remember this is not official update...and maybe neither for our tablet but for other p11 Lenovo model..... I think is a alpha version in my opinion....stay away if you don't want troubles...or if you are real good with Android stuff....

Thanks for your advice fazioso. You just replied me in a very good moment. Because Im bein updating all zui 13 updates during this day and just now I was downloadong Zui 14 to update the tablet. But I think I will stay here in the zui 13.0.560 thanks to you.

I have bootloader unlocked. Today I updated from zui 12.0.211 ,I made 6 updates in total and Im in 13.0.560. Should I lock the bootloader now or I keep the bootloader unlocked?

i hope in the future comes android 12 with zui 14 official....cause its really good tablet...if dont happens i will change the tablet...cause is not possible that a company releases products without keeping them updated.....

if you have serial number file with you its simple to lock/unlock....
and with locked bootloader you have l1 widevine for netflix/disney/prime hd version....and i think you also have OTA updates enables with lock bootloader...but i dont remember well..... :(

Thanks for your reply is good to know your experience.

So I dont understand how many people got L1 and others continues in L3. Maybe is the region where we live? It would be interesting to know how they get L1 exactly.

So I keep my tablet in zui 13.1.560 woth bootloader unlocked for the moment.

I wish we get the trick of getting L1 soon. Trick that works to all lenovo tablet owners..

Yeah, not sure if flashing the stock Chinese Rom all over again can help, with the bootloader locked from the beginning.

Instalé root en zui 12.6 (TB-J716F) con android 11 también pude certificar la tablet, personalmente es mejor así, lo único malo es que no se puede actualizar pero siento que es mejor así.

    Using the Chinese VPN software, I was able to OTA from ZUI 13.1.560 to ZUI 14.0.127.

    The process was flawless and til this moment I have not found any problem.

    Seems that Lenovo blocked OTA for the Chinese ROM outside Chinese network, because I have tried many times unsuccessfully. Before this update I was able to use OTA normally.

    I saved the full upgrade file (13.1.560 >> 14.1.127) and shared it in the link below:

    ZUI 14.0.127

    This update is very stable, it fixes the problems of the first update, you can do the update without fear, my tablet was very good.

    Thanks Boss 😄,
    What the process? I just search for OTA or i have to do manually?
    Because im with zui 13 yet....
    I think you can automatically search on the tablet will appear. By the Chinese forum released. I used a chinese VPN to get ota for me on the tablet. But I had manually updated to the first ZUI 14, which was the one that had several bugs, so this second ZUI 14 update has already come by ota

    I used the Chinese VPN app mentioned in this thread, I used my Google account to activate the free trial.

    Once you're done you can remove access to the service following the instructions here - https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/3466521?hl=en

    I paused the download of the update once it had started, closed the VPN and then it downloaded at full speed (1.5 minutes as opposed to 8 hours via the VPN!)

    Google Play Store worked immediately for me.

    Thanks for the help and pointers from everyone here.
