Last week it downloaded most of the afternoon, then it installed. During the install part the screen said DO NOT TURN OFF TABLET. After all this, it turned off. When I powered it on it turned on normally and everything seemed to be ok. No messages or anything.
So far today its just been downloading. Is it stuck? its been doing something for about 12 hours. I plugged it in so the power shouldn't go off.
Do I just let it run?
Did I start this D/L by how I turned the power switch on? I may have hit the volume button trying to turn the sound down after I hit power but I'm not sure.
What is downloading automatically?
Can I set this to happen at night when I don't need to use the tablet? I hate this surprise download as I can't use the tablet for the day.
Should it take this long to DL something. I've got it on the desk near my wireless router so the signal should be great.
I love my tablet but right now I am
& frustrated by this.
I downloaded the update manually yesterday after seeing on the Forum that there was a update to 3.2. I was a little surprised that it was only fifty something Megs. The dialog says that you can do other tasks while the download is going on. It took over two hours and then popped up a window that required an OK to install the update. The install then says that no more tasks can be done while the install is going on.
It may be that most of my update download was going on in the background. If you want you can turn off the automatic update by going to Settings - About Device - Software Update and unchecking Auto Update. Then you can do a manual update when you want.
