Software update for A2109A - how to install from external sd?

I bought my wife and son an A2109A tablet each just a few days ago. I immediately did an ota update. When I checked if there any further updates it said the tablet had the latest software from 297 days ago.
I see everyone on forums talking about a jellybean release for this tablet so I had a look on Lenovo's site and sure enough, there is an update released on 20th Feb 2013 with the filename a2109_jb_gpl_rc1_227.tar.bz2. I downloaded this, put it on an ecternal sd card and booted into recovery mode. The tablet did a search for an update, found it but couldn't verify the update. I chose the "install from external storage" option, but it couldn't see the file. I renamed the file to "update.zip" and tried again but it aborted again both automatically and manual install.
What do I need to do to install this update?

You tried to install the kernel source on your tablet? You can't do that, What OS are you running? if you don't have jb, the system update should allow you to update.

    I can't install software Update for iOS 7.1.1. for iPad because I was forgot my password. How I can change my password?

    These are user to user forums. Apple does not participate here and does not respond to posts. For the record, since the iPad 2 supports iOS 8 any attempt to update the iPad 2 will result in an update to 8.1. Apple only supports updating to the latest version of the operating system that the device supports.

  • Can't install iPhone 2.0 Software Update for iPod touch

    I am trying to download the iPhone 2.0 Software Update for iPod touch from http://www.apple.com/ipodtouch/whatsnew.html so I can download apps for my new iPod touch. (Although it is pretty bogus that I should have to pay $10 for an upgrade on a brand new device so that I have the privilege to buy apps). I have iTunes 7.7 already installed.
    When I click on the link https://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/touchLandingPage , I do not get a download, and iTunes does not open. Nothing happens if I open iTunes before trying this link either.
    Instead, I get a brief page which says "One Momemt Please". Connecting to the iTunes Store. Loading... If iTunes doen't open, click the iTunes application in your Doc or Windows Task Bar" , then my browser is redirected to http://www.apple.com/itunes/affiliates/download/?itmsUrl=itmss%3A%2F%2Fphobos.ap ple.com%2FWebObjects%2FMZFinance.woa%2Fwa%2FtouchLandingPage%3Fign-mscache%3D1 which tells me to download iTunes... but I already have iTunes installed.
    I installed (then uninstalled, reinstalled) the latest iTunes (7.7.0.43) and the problem persists. iTunes works fine for all other uses.
    I have the problem with both Firefox (3.0) and Internet Explorer (6)
    How can I download and install The iPhone 2.0 Software Update for iPod touch directly from iTunes? I cannot find it when I search for it. It is not listed in the App store.
    (P.S. The web support form does not work when I tried to fill out a problem report for "Connection" issues. Although I filled in all form fields, it would not send the report, telling me I did not fill in a field.)

    The upgrade now appears directly in iTunes, so I do not need to access it from the web page. I see many others are encountering problems installing the upgrade, so I'll see how it goes...
    There is no answer to the initial problem that iTunes install does not configure the browsers to handle the itmss:// protocol.
    I still think Apple should not charge for this for a brand new iPod purchased just this week.

    Well first off you shouldn't have had to pay for a download (just an assumption from the word "purchased".
    If you are trying to install iOS 5 on your iPod touch, it won't work they arent compatible. I suggest checking what version of software you are trying to install and posting it in this forum so people can have a better understanding.

    Hello cor-el, thanks for your reply. I changed my settings for downloads to desktop and it has appeared on there. When I double click I am asked which program I want to open file. I click firefox and another box "opening install" says I have chosen to open the file which is an application and do I want to save it. This is the only real option so I press save file. I get a box saying this is an executable file which may contain viruses - do you want to run. I press ok and the final box showing C drive file name and desktop appears stating application not found.
    This happens the same whenever I try to install.
    To my untrained eye the application is not being recognised as an application and I cannot work out how to get it to do that.
    My plugin is still showing as out of date.
    Is there anything you could suggest. Thanks for your time.

  • Should I let it install "Apple software update for windows 2.0.2"?

    Thanks, in advance... it may just be a ditz of a question.
    Running Vista and when in Mac occasionally run Parallels, Apple Software Update window popped and this update appeared:
    Apple software update for windows 2.0.2 with the description
    "This update includes general fixes and renews the root certificate that authenticates software delivered via Apple Software Update."
    I figure it was logical enough considering the obvious link but the description just looked to vague. So, I put it off... today searching the internet, Apple Help and so on for this "update" cannot find it anywhere. I have already had problems with file corruption so "fixing root certificates" unnecessarily is not ideal.
    Anyone else know one way or another or just tell it to go away for good?
    Thank you,
    Kylie

    I never actually use Software Update excep to tell me there is something (if I hadn't read about it). I go to the standalone downloads. There was one for QuickTime for Windows that you DO want.
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/
    It sounds like Software Update for Windows, and that probably does deserve installing (I use x64 and don't really trust support yet or installers from Apple for now) so I have Apple software update in vista turned off.
    I do have the 9-17-2007 2.0.2 "Apple Software Update for Windows" installed.
    Why I don't trust Apple: alerts and UAC's are always hidden behind the installer window in front. I just tried to close the windows or dialogue box for Apple Software Update Preferences, it asked for UAC and went black, but I can't even close the box even though all I did was hit "Okay" button. So its 'hung' now.
    Apple needs to improve the installer for Vista - a lot. I like not having to type a password every time, that has gotten old after 6 yrs.

    I'm updating from 4 not 5 and under General it does not have a Software Update option. How do i update ???

    To update the iOS to 5.1.1 from iOS version end prior to iOS 5 you must connect the iPad to a computer running iTunes.
    Start iTunes on the computer, connect the iPad, select the iPad in iTunes on the computer. If you are not automatically prompted to update select the General or Summary tab and then click on Check for Updates.

    How do we get a software update for realplayer that comes with the phone ?  Thanks.

    You wait for a firmware update that includes it.
    S60v5 phones also have a gizmo called "Application update". Sometimes elements in the firmware receive an update that way. For example, there was recently an update to FlashLite 3.1 on the 5800 XpressMusic.

  • Will the Software Update to 10.4.7 install firmware upgrade for SuperDrive?

    Will the Software Update to 10.4.7 install firmware upgrade for a SuperDrive?
    I have a Mac mini and I've just let the Software Update run as needed, but I am confused by the number of Apple update downloads listed.
    I don't believe I need them, when I just use Software Update?
    Seems like a simple question, but I was on Windows for the last 10 years.

    You can't. It's now integrated with the URL bar. It's a search/URL combo.
