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

Thanks again for sharing. I ordered Xiaoxin pad pro 2022 from AliExpress. It came with global ROM TB132FU_S300062_220921_ROW. Looks like my device suffers from the HDR issue unfortunately. Apart from that it's an amazing device. Screen and audio is so good. Best tablet I've owned hands down. Looks like I'll have to wait till we figure out how to flash global ROM to fix HDR issue.

If you can back up the stuff on the tablet for me, I think I can figure out a way to flash global ROM in no time.

If someone is feeling adventurous and has technical skills, you can find a link on how to dump (copy) the device's firmware here.

Hello everyone,

I just bought the Lenovo P11 Pro 2nd Gen (8GB/256GB) with a mediatek 1300T. It's the Global one, with widevine L1 and all that good stuff. Bought from my country as it's being sold everywhere pretty much (Portugal).

So far it's great!
I've already had two updates from Lenovo and now my firmware is at TB132FU_S000089_221020_ROW.

Is this different than yours?

Also, a big issue I'm having.
When trying to enable accessibility for an app, it will show me a dialog asking if I want to enable it, but the only option it gives me is to uninstall the app. It doesn't give me any option to allow/enable accessibility for any app.

Does anyone have this issue?

I have recivied today the tablet. Which ROM is this?View attachment 5769841
You have the Chinese tablet with Global ROM. The one sellers are flashing a ROM that doesn't support updates and has broken HDR.

Yep, this one you have is the International version. We have the Chinese version and we are facing some trouble with it.

I would check the permissions on the system settings. And report to Lenovo. Unfortunately since I have another version I can't reproduce or troubleshoot. Good luck 🤞.

I already reported to them, but I'm not very confident they will fix it at all.
Already thinking of maybe returning it since I need 100% accessibility permissions to work.

Xiaoxin Pad Pro (2022) - 11.2" Problems
Chinese Version w/ Chinese ROM

- Can't do video calls, have flicker problem when calling then shuts down and reboot.
- Netflix still on L3 even if its read as L1

Hope you can share some info on how to fix the Video Call issue or is it a bug on ZUI 14?

Most of us have the fake global firmware, so we might not be able to assist fully, but by the sound of it, sounds like a problem with the app compatibility. I tried Zoom and it works on the one with global version.

For Netflix, this is a weird problem. Maybe the seller unlocked the bootloader? Try to see if you have any better luck by using Netflix inside KODI. There is a Netflix addon online you can search and install.

Another user is helping us get a copy of the global ROM, maybe you want to try it once available. Before flashing it, some help backing up the Chinese ROM and sharing it would be really great for the community. 😅

    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
    That Global rom is a fake custom rom so you can't get any OTA, you can check the other thread but so far I don't think anyone have any success in going back to CN rom or flashing a real Global one yet
    Our colleague @Fatperman actually had success in restoring from fake global to ZUI 14 and should be updating us in the next few days! 🙏

    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.
