Firmware Update Available for Le Pan TC 970 Android Tablet

lepan1

I just got word that a new update is available for my favorite Android tablet, the Le Pan TC 970.

I’m not sure what’s in the update though, in a few minutes I’ll be updating my TC 970. The newest firmware though is 4431.

I also found out about a way to root the tablet as well, but sadly it costs $4.99…

If you want to root your tablet, see http://droidpirate.com/2011/07/13/le-pan-tc-tablet-root-android-le-pan-tc-970-9-7/

(edit: I removed the live link up there because I read on XDA Forums that it really doesn’t work and it’s basically a scam. Don’t know how true it is, but you can never be too careful, so go there and try at your own risk)

Please be reminded, any modification or alteration of the tablet voids warranty.

    Talked my way thru customer service to get the firmware update to install.
    Files must be put on the sd card but not inside a file.They load on to the external sd card and remember to format the sd card.Once I loaded the individual files the firmware took. and seems to be ok.
    Tablet says 4413 now.
    Any one have any luck rooting??
