Has anyone discovered a setting for the creation of user accounts at the xiaoxin? Does the P11 has these option?
I've bought it for the whole family but i need to disable some apps for the children and family link didn't work properly:(
if you have Chinese version try to use "Study assistant" and limit usage in a way there ... or use apps from Play store, there are multiple options there... Lenovo ZUI 14 can't add multiple users (yet?)... If you have EU model, go to system, multiple users, add guest... etc.

OK, looks like i'll have to wait till we can flash the xiaoxin to the P11.
The additional apps doesn't sound that good to me.
There is the option to create a personal "space" and lock some apps. Maybe i'll give this a try.
But thanks for your reply

Anyone with Chinese Mediatek version have PC Mode available? Instead I just have Study Assistant which, while useful, doesn't fulfill the same functionality. PC Mode was a big reason why I bought this tablet...

There are two options on AliExpress when buying the Chinese version of the tablet (1300T 6/128). They flash to the global version or leave a sealed box with Chinese firmware. At first they said that the OTA update will not work in that global version, but now they say that it will, believe them that it is a real global firmware, or is it a crooked modification and it is better to take the original Chinese one? Advise me

Looks like they found a way to install the P11 Rom.

Yes, PC Mode desktop. I do not have this app on my unit, which is very strange. You should be able to enable it from the menu and also from notification bar - it reorganizes the launcher to be more akin to a Linux or Windows desktop, similar to Samsung Dex. Lenovo One is a separate program which is also useful but unrelated. Thank you for checking.

Sorry, no Idea. I've just found the mentioned offer at AliExpress and the picture of the settings.
Maybe someone is interested in contacting the seller?
I have already contacted sellers on AliExpress, and judging by their responses, they are not to be trusted. The one who is simply engaged in trade writes, not the one who flashes these tablets. Perhaps it is better to take a pure Chinese, there is an English language and the ability to install Google Play yourself. However, some people believe that there is some kind of censorship and restrictions on use

moreover it would be interesting to know where they pick the fw and if they use same method used for the previous Pro pad, just for curiosity

I have seen aliexpress. There were several shops describing the xiaoxin pad pro 2022 as a global ROM. I asked two questions to the shops and only got one answer. I don't know if I can trust them.
But if I want to revive my xiaoxin pad pro 2022 that has become unbootable, is it possible to buy this globalised ROM, suck out the ROM somehow and apply it? I am not familiar with the mediatek tool. (USB debugging and OEM lock are not turned on, so it's hopeless...)

And does the aliexpress vendor buy the information and tools to be able to convert to global roms from somewhere? Does anyone have any information to share?

If you are in China ROM, the ZUI 14 had officially removed the PC Mode from itself. The PC mode will only displaced on external display through Type C output. During the, the internal display will still be normal mode.

Anyone lucky enough to get the test OTA update can confirm this fixed the HDR issue?
Google translate :) OTA update ZUI 14.0.630

Code:
- Optimized system stability
- Optimized HDR display effect
- Optimized some third-party charger charging problems
- Fixed some third-party application horizontal screen adaptation problems

- Fixed the problem that more than 60% of the battery was not charged after the battery saver mode was turned off
- Fixed the problem that the JD.com app could not be exited by swiping right
- Fixed the problem that occasionally the application could not swipe up in the horizontal screen scene, and the vertical screen can only exit
- Fixed the problem that the other party's view screen rotates 90 degrees in a specific scene during a WeChat video call
- Fixed the Classin software when entering the classroom or study room in horizontal screen
- Fixed the problem of not being displayed in full screen when Uncle Kai told the story half of the page stayed on the desktop and did not disappear until the parallel window was closed

- lets hope that "Optimized HDR playback display effect" means in reality FIXED HDR playback

    lethargy123 cannot be trusted.
    Currently, 1300 Tver roms are not published anywhere.
    I think you are wrong about Lenovo knowledge base.
    And you can't update with P11 Pro Gen 2 roms. It will not boot.

    I think we'll have more information soon on what the global ROM version sold on AliExpress looks like, so it's better to wait until then.

    In addition, my English is not very good, so I don't have the energy to do the tutorial. I put the pictures that I have successfully swiped in some Chinese computer flash ROM forum. As for why I don't share the CN ROM, it is because I can't use Google.

    Got the OTA ZUI 14.0.630 update (Have to VPN to CN then turn if off once download start), can confirm that HDR is fixed. True Black is properly show now and no more Grey. Tested with multiple players and Youtube.

    Edit: Before and after OTA

    Hi,

    Received mine Friday...it's a 8/256Go.
    Nearly everything is very good :
    - bright 2.5k AMOLED screen
    - sound
    - performances (far better than Pro Gen 1)
    - internal storage (average sequential read : 1.3Go/s)
    - microSD card reader (tested on a 256Go)
    - light weight

    What is less good :
    - face unlock doesn't work in darkness
    - fingerprints marks on back
    - lack of audio jack

    Nevertheless, I doubt you will get many custom ROM as it is :
    - probably not a best seller even if I think it's one of the best tablet...0 tests yet in media
    - it's Mediatek's based...devs used to dislike that (there are some exceptions : for exemple Redmi Note 8 Pro)
    3
    you need to check it with HW wattmeter, I have and will check later today and post results...
    - so, I did a few tests with battery charging on china TB132FU Mediatek 1300T model
    - using unoriginal (not Lenovo) QC 3.0 certified charger (which is widely accepted by my other devices and charges them as quickly as possible) tablet ignore QC mode which results in normal - slow charging - taking around 5W
    - using original included Lenovo charger tablet recognized charger (using unoriginal USB-C to USB-C cable) and enabled turbo charging - this time tablet takes 32W
    - after tablet reached 100% shows "charged" and the consumption decreased from 32W to 11.6W - I checked back of the tablet with bare hand and found one place mildly warmer than the rest
    - started the stopwatch and was willing to wait 1 hour before disconnecting the tablet from the charger...
    - I checked warmer place on the back of the tablet twice during 15 minutes and it was evidently cooling down - while charger still shows 11.6W consumption...
    - after 20-25 minutes consumption drops to 0W (when I waked the screen wattmeter showed 2.6W consumption and after I switched screen off with power button consumption dropped to 0W again - while plugged to charger)
    - conclusion from my point of view - this is not a bug, it's a feature...

    I can't wait for my set. I ordered the 8/128 GB variant.
    From the internet research, the 8gb variant should come with extra features like 10bit color and SD870 SOC instead.

    I could not confirm that until received. Anyone could confirm this?

    I have now also ordered the European version of this variant here in Germany, it has arrived today. There was only one option available, which is the 256/8GB version with the Mediatek chipset and global ROM (including Play Store) already installed.

    As I understand it, the global version of this tablet always comes with the Mediatek chipset, the QC SD870 is for other markets. This would also mean that the global ROM will only function on the Mediatek chipset and not on the Qualcomm.

    I can also confirm, that there is support for HDR10 and even Dolby Vision.

    I've recently received my 6/128GB MTK Edition from giztop.
    Looks like the seller installed the Google Play Store. Unfortunately i reset the pad due to some misunderstandings with my Google Account and now i have no Playstore anymore.
    I've downloaded the current apk, but it doesn't work.
    Can someone tell me where i can get a working Version?
    I hope we can flash a global rom soon
    :love:
    same happened to me, just download play store app from lenovo app center or from apkpure, download google play services app and google services framework app, install, reboot ... done ... works like a charm (I actually did reboot after every install)
