Hi, any help that can be offered is greatly appreciated.

I've just ordered this, however, I ordered the global rom version sold by Lenovo Office Store. I wish I had seen this thread first as it seems I chose the wrong seller/version.

The tablet is a gift for my 10 year old. She only really uses her tablet for video Messenger and games like Minecraft, Roblox and Toca World - do you foresee any problems? Will she have security issues logging into her accounts? Any recommendations on what I should do before she uses it with regards to flashing? Is flashing even possible yet?

I thought there would have been more about this tablet on XDA as it's been out for a few months now...unless I've just not been able to find the threads???

Also, where is the best place to grab a case for this tablet? The only ones I can find locally (Australia) are for the Pro version.

I hope I've not made a poor choice, I was tempted to get the 4gb M10 Plus but the Xiaoxin had 6gb RAM.

Thanks in advance

Mine just died, refuses to turn on without any apparent reason after a few days of basic usage
Not recognized by PC and it seems like a HW issue
No button combos worked

This problem is present on all xiaoxin pad 2022 devices, please press the three keys at the same time volume + - and power on for 10-15 seconds and you can boot the device from recovery, maybe the first time it happens, you need to format from boot. recovery to be able to revive it.

Thank you!

That actually worked, i'm still amazed it did tho

After owning several devices both Chinese and others, i've never encountered a situation like this, i mean, why did that work when everything else failed? even on the hw level it wasn't working, also how did a device get from a booted working state to such a state?

This is even worse than a DFU mode because at least that can still be detected

This device originally has lenovo zui firmware, but the Chinese unlock bootloader and flash a global one, which seems to be faulty, the device goes into that deep sleep state when you connect the charge and puts it to sleep immediately or when you disconnect the charge and it goes to rest immediately, I went back to the original ZUI firmware and it is better optimized.

Interesting
So you also experienced these issues on your tablet? do you know if there is a fix other than a rom change?
What are the supported languages on the lenovo rom? and where can i get it?
My tablet is: TB128FU_S000020_220309

I had this problem too, we all have, it is very easy to revert to original Chinese firmware zui with qfil tool was able to flash the firmware zui, you can install Google services manually. English is the system language but if you need another language you can use morelocale2 or the seedit apk so that the applications are in your native language.

So i can use qfil to flash stock rom + gaps then install morelocale2 for more languages, is that correct?

Just saw your edit, thank you the video is good enough i understand now

(regardless of this point, every time you install an application in zui you must manually grant the permissions in the "apps management" section in the menu settigs)

I just received the tablet and I'm wondering how to have L1 for Netflix. It seems that the way is using the Russian tutorial and then locking the bootloader? Or is there any possibility to update TB128FU_S000020_220309 to a newest version easily?

I don't mind changing the ROM, but I would like to have Widevine support :)

    Ei pessoal, estou apenas atualizando meu Xiaoxin para 14.0.675 ST. Eu mudei para Rom Chinês de Global Rom, então bloqueei o bootloader e hoje liguei o tablet e a atualização do sistema me notificou sobre a atualização. Baixei sem o uso de VPN, demorou 1 minuto ou menos. Agora estou esperando a instalação terminar.I woke up just now and when I got the tablet it was already updated without me having done anything.

    Just installed the chinese rom, received OTA updates to 13.5.476 and am installing now, I will try to lock the widevine later today.

    I would encourage pretty much anyone that can speak english to use the stock chinese rom, I installed the microsoft launcher and wow, the tablet is so much smoother than the global one. Seriously, I was kinda let down by the tablet when I first received it, but now I am so much happier, this is way better and optimized.

    To lock again the pad, you just need activate the debug USB and power off the device and go to fastboot mode and on cmd in computer you type:
    1. fastboot devices (to see if your device is there)
    2. fastboot flashing lock and select the option on your device and done.

    ONLY LOCK IF YOU HAVE THE LATEST UPDATE IN ZUI (ZUI_13.5.476_ST).

    Have you used adb fastboot program to open the cmd?

    I finally managed to make it work.
    Widevine Is L1 after relocking bootloader.

    Thank you all

    My suggestion is to use another launcher. It’s way easier fixing something from ZUI tbh

    I am an author of the post you attached. It's written pretty simple so you can translate it using Google Translate.
    Can you give me a detailed video on how to install rom global Pad 2022? thanks you
