    Hello, I have a Lenovo A3500 Tab A-7 tablet PC running on Android version 4.4.2 and I want to update the OS but am unable to do so.

    I have tried all advice I can find on the internet.

    Does anyone know if it's possible to update my tablet and how I can do it?

    Thanks.

    Craig.

    I don't know anything about that particular device, but general advice:

    * If the manufacturer has produced an update, you should be able to download it from Settings > About > Software Updates
    * In rare cases there may be updates available from the manufacturer's website that are not available Over The Air (the first option)
    * If the manufacturer has not produced an update, your only chance is if somebody else has built one for that device (i.e. a "custom ROM"). If such a thing exists you will need to root the device in order to install it (or install a custom recovery, but the two things normally go hand-in-hand). Rooting methods, recoveries and ROMs are all device-specific, and since I'm not familiar with this device I can't offer any specific advice.
