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 :)
If you install zui and manage to lock the bootloader The widivine L1 will return , installing zui is easy, after that you should lock the bootloader, I don't know of a safe method yet.

I tried to flash my tb128fu to several roms including the Chinese one but still couldn't get the L1. Magisk didn't work either. If you are using an global rom, just flash back to the original before trying anything new or you may get the error "Your device isn't compatible with this version".

The last thing I tried was to flash back to the original Chinese rom with ZUI 13, then re-locked the bootloader (my device was shipped unlocked). Immediately got the error "Your device is corrupt. It can't be trusted and will not boot". The device is currently in bootloop. I'm requesting the unlock image from lenovo and hoping it would work.

Just my experience, yours may be different. If anyone knows how to get rid of the corrupt error, please let me know.

That's why I don't recommend to lock bootloader without verified method, this can help you to get out of that situation.

Got it! So I have successfully brought my device back using the following guide (in step 3, replace "fpinfo" with "oem": https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...k-file-xiaoxin-pad-pro-2021-tb-j716f.4488343/

Thank you so much!
Glad you were able to get your device back, in a 4pda chat I read that an experienced user was able to lock bootloader successfully on xiaoxin pad 2022, but he didn't post the method.

I've tried several methods including switching to GSI but none of them support L1. Didn't try magisk cuz I couldn't find a working version for Xiaoxin 2022.

Is there a way to make the tablet support to connect external display via usb adapter to a projector ?
or is it from the hardware of the tablet ?

Yep it's true! Anw, do you know how to boot to ffbm? The button combination does not work for me and selecting ffbm from fastboot leaves my device stuck at the Lenovo logo
volume down + power does not work for you?

Seems easy to root!!

1 extract boot.img from stock rom with a file manager.
2 patch boot.img with magisk app.
3 flash boot.img patched in fastboot mode.(without adding flash in command) mode security
4 if root granted temporarily successfully proceed to install permanently from magisk app.

am I wrong?

Good morning,
I found this forum looking for information on the tablet I just bought, which is the xiaoxin pad 2022.
The seller says he delivers it with the Global ROM but according to what I have read in this topic this makes it lose the L1 widevine.
Should I cancel the purchase, is it difficult to change ROM to have L1?
I do not do ROM changes since the ZTE Skate hahaha.
I have seen in images that put buyers in the store that I bought it , it is the following:
TB128FU_RF01_220916
Thanks.

Yes those steps are correct. I just couldn't find a magisk version that could patch the boot.img. Maybe I just didn't get the right version :-?

Hi, all global roms for xiaoxin pad 2022 are Custom or Unofficial which require bootloader unlocked to be installed. So yes, right now there is no way to get Netflix stream on HD (just my experiences). It may be fixed sometimes later hopefully :)

If I tell the seller to have the Chinese ROM, can it have L1 Being the official ROM that the tablet had?

Hmm it could work. I believe the L1 is related to the status of the bootloader. As far as I know all vendors ship their devices with an unlocked bootloader (it doesn't matter if the device's running Global or Chinese rom). Mine arrived with Global rom + unlocked bootloader -> I flashed it back to the Chinese rom (still L3) -> I tried to re-lock the bootloader but failed and got bricked lol.

So, you could just ask them if the device has L1/could stream Netflix higher than SD straightly. Good luck

    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.

    Hey guys, Im just updating my Xiaoxin to 14.0.675 ST. Ive had changed to Chinese Rom from Global Rom, then locked the bootloader and today I turned on the tablet and the systen update notified me about the update. I downloaded it without the use of a VPN, it took like 1 minute or less. Now im waiting to the install to finish.

    The display is entirely black (since the charge reached 100% for the first time); nothing shows (not a bootloop). Yes, I tried to force reboot and reset for many times (by holding the Power button, Power button plus Vol+, Power button plus Vol-, and Vol+ plus Vol- buttons together), but nothing worked. The tab was working until it was charging from (and during) 45% to 99%, but the display went black once the change reached 100%. Since then no buttons works. Please help to make the tab work.
    press all keys at the same time (volume + volume - and power) for 15-20 seconds
    Update: Fortunately, I got the Fastboot Mode (holding Power plus Vol+), then powered it off and tried to power it on again, and the tab is now working. Not sure what has happened during the last 12 hours. Fastboot Mode (1st pic) shows the device is unlocked, but the bootup screen shows no warning message regarding the unlocked bootloader but the Lenovo logo (2nd pic). Since the device is already unlocked (I thought otherwise), how to flash Chinese Rom safely?

    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.

    INSTRUCTIONS FOR MIGRATING TO ZUI 13.5.365 ON A XIAOXIN PAD 2022 SNAPDRAGON 680 TABLET WITH M10 PLUS 3RD GEN TB128FU GLOBAL ROM INSTALLED AND UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH M10 PLUS 3RD GEN WITH MEDIATEK HELIO G80 PROCESSOR).

    PEFORM AT YOUR OWN RISK, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT MAY GO WRONG.
    IF YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH KNOWLEDGE, DON'T DO IT.

    INSTRUCTIONS AND FILES FOR INSTALL STOCK ROM ZUI XIAOXIN PAD 2022

    ZUI_13.5.365_ST_220526 Firmware in mega from here.

    WiINRAR to unzip the firmware from here. (other decompressors give error when decompressing)

    QUALCOMM PC DRIVERS from here.

    QFIL download from here. FROM HERE INSTRUCTIONS AND CONFIGURATION QFIL TOOL

    RECOVER WIDIVINE L1 (For wdivine L1 you must update your firmware to version ZUI_13.5.476) With system update application: FILES UPDATE FIRMWARE WITH INSTRUCTIONS TXT Then it locks the bootloader following the steps in the attached post. ADB AND FASTBOOT 1.4.3 + DRIVERS + TUTORIAL INSTALATION DRIVERS in the attached post you will also find the fastboot commands.

    Tutorial video flash firmware with QFIL

    Tutorial video install PLAY STORE and SERVICES GOOGLE PLAY

    Tutorial video for app SETEDIT, switch apps to your native language

    Install app setedit from play store on your phone and tablet, on the tablet click on add new settings and create the same value that appears on your phone "system_locales" without " " are automatically added, then add the abbreviation of your language and country without the " " example: "es-ES" then restart your device, Applications will switch to your native language, system settings will remain in English, you will get used to it very quickly.

    You can manually uninstall all junk chinese apps in ZUI.

    The security app is very aggressive on ZUI. It will repeatedly remove all permissions given to apps like notifications etc. Type in the system browser "special app access" and then I will proceed to deny all permissions granted to the security application.
    (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)

    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
